  • Kingfisher – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    £22.00
    We always say it's a good day when you spy a kingfisher. These elusive birds are stunning with their iridescent coats of blue, turquoise, and that orange belly..! We had to have a colourway inspired by them. This is highly variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with as every stitch is a different colour. Looks great in simple knit and crochet patterns.
     
    Fibre Content: 100% Bluefaced Leicester Wool
    Specification: 4 ply / fingering weight - 400m / 100g
    Fibre: Sourced from UK flocks
    Processing: Spun in Yorkshire, hand dyed by us in Northamptonshire
  • Lichen Fancier – Severn 4 Ply 50g

    £9.00
    Fibre Content: 100% British Jacob wool
    Specification: 4 Ply / Fingering weight - 175m / 50g
    Fibre: Sourced from Worcestershire, UK
    Processing: Spun in Ceridigion, Wales, dyed in the UK
    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.5mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)

    This is a light and airy woollen-spun and plied yarn from a single farm in Worcestershire. Jacob sheep are one of the oldest native breeds in the UK. They are striking in their appearance, with white and brown fleeces and multiple horns! We sorted the fleeces by hand, separating the white from the brown. We have natural and dyed shades available. The wool is hardwearing and makes lightweight, warm garments that soften beautifully with age. Use it for hats, mittens, jumpers, and house socks and slippers. The yarn is made up of 2 plies, which lends itself well to lace patterns and stranded colourwork. This yarn hasn’t been superwash-treated, so it will felt if you want it to. This also makes it an excellent candidate for steeking, if you’re brave enough!

    Specification: Sport weight / heavy 4 Ply - 300m / 100g
    Fibre: Sourced from Astcote, Northamptonshire, UK
    Processing: Spun in Yorkshire, dyed in the UK
     
    We're delighted to introduce you to our most local wool yet: from flocks in Northamptonshire. This comes from a single flock of Leicester Longwool sheep in Astcote, just down the A5 from our Weedon Bec studio. Flock owners Chris and Barry favour black Leicesters, which is why the yarn has a heathered appearance, as all the shades of black, grey, silver, and white have gone into this delightfully local spin.

  • Naturally Dyed – Severn 4 Ply 50g

    £9.00
    Limited Edition Naturally Dyed Yarn
    These very special skeins have been dyed by extracting natural colours from plants that have either been foraged by us or come from a sustainable source. They are true one-of-a-kind shades that cannot be repeated. They have been hand-dyed in a semi-solid / tonal style so there will be some gentle variation in tone that lends a bit of extra interest to your project.
    The colourway name indicates firstly the source of the dye and secondly, a colour description. For example: "Madder Coral" is dyed with madder and has a coral colour.

  • Navvy – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    £22.00
    It was thanks to the dangerous and back-breaking work of the Navvies that the canals were cut and built. This colourway is a nod to our industrial heritage with its brick red and canal-inspired blues and greens. Although quite highly variegated, the colours are light and will allow textured patterns to shine through while lending visual interest to simple ones. The gentle colours blend beautifully in the finished project.

    Processing: Spun and hand dyed in Britain
    Recommended needle & hook size: 2.0mm - 3.75mm (always check the pattern)
     
    Aysgarth is 100% lustrous British Wensleydale wool. Its appearance is similar to the shine and the halo of mohair and it feels like a warm woolly hug. Seriously, you won't be able to stop stroking this yarn! It comes from sheep who have amazing long curly locks and it is a hand dyer's favourite for its colour uptake. The yarn is worsted spun and plied, and has a draping handle, making it ideal for statement pieces. Remember to always block your projects for the best outcome. Please note that this is a non-superwash yarn, so it can be felted if you want.

    On The Cut – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    £18.00
    The Cut is an old boating term for the canal, because it is cut (or dug) into the landscape. So "on the cut" means cruising on the canal, and the colours are reflected in this yarn. Sky blue, white fluffy clouds, and the green-brown sliver of the water. Although quite highly variegated, the colours are light and will allow textured patterns to shine through while lending visual interest to simple ones. The gentle colours blend beautifully in the finished project.

    We had a lot of fun collaborating with Third Vault Yarns for this year's Open Day Special yarn!
     
    Third Vault Yarns are inspired by fantasy and sci-fi. When deciding on what theme to go with, Lola listed numerous fantasy series, all of which I haven't read! We finally realised that we both enjoyed Terry Pratchett's Discworld, and love the original cover art from the books.
     
    We dyed two different yarn bases:
    50% Corriedale 50% Mohair - this yarn has all the lustre and drape you'd expect from its constituent fibres and that beautiful fuzzy halo too.
    100% Cormo wool - a bouncy 4 ply / fingering weight that is soft and smooth. This is the one used in the swatches.
    Both yarns are 400m per 100g skein.
