    On The Cut – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    GBP £22.00
    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.

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 marvellous mill folk at John Arbon Textiles are celebrating their 20th anniversary and you’re all invited! Part of the festivities includes the launch of their Appledore yarn, and we were delighted that they asked us and Third Vault Yarns to dye some limited edition shades for the event.
     
    As Appledore is all about glorious West Country apples, Lola (Third Vault Yarns) looked slightly further afield - out into intergalactic space, in fact! She is a big sci-fi fan and has created shades inspired by tropical fruits which are often used as props in sci-fi films and TV shows - we just love the idea, and would well recommend googling a Kiwano if you're not familiar! Instead of zooming off into future realms, we stayed right here, inspired by the West Country but travelled back in time to the mythical court of Arthurian legends. Purple was a royal colour in the Middle Ages. Can’t you just imagine lady Guinevere wearing a garment in Excalibur? And Avalon is giving us all the lady in the lake feels... and as serendipity would have it, Avalon and Excalibur are both heritage varieties of plum trees, yum.
     
    So without further ado, we’d love to present you with not one, not two, but four glorious shades inspired by nature's bounty with a playful twist that is out of this world. We just love the way all four shades play together and would love a big old stripy sweater...

  • Close up of Copper Gasket Skeins of Copper Gasket

    Copper Gasket – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    GBP £22.00
    Our boat has a lovely old engine in it, and during a major overhaul we removed the cylinder head to discover a beautiful copper gasket. This colourway is an homage to many hours spent in the engine bay! It's gently variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because every stitch is different. The colours blend beautifully in the finished project as you can see in the knit and crochet samples. You can use this for textured as well as simple patterns.

  • Knit and crochet samples of Honey Sunrise Skeins of Honey Sunrise

    Honey Sunrise – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    GBP £22.00
    One of those magical, otherworldly sunrises inspired this colourway. Honey coloured autumn leaves were hanging over the canalside and the pink, violet, and blue sky was reflected in the water. Stunning. The yarn is gently variegated and that makes it a lot of fun to work with because every stitch is different. The colours blend beautifully in the finished project as you can see in the knit and crochet samples. You can use this for textured as well as simple patterns.

Flock owners Lynne and David have been breeding Shetland sheep for 16 years, focusing specifically on the quality of the wool, which is incredibly soft. The yarn has a heathered appearance, as many different coloured fleeces have gone into this delightfully local spin.

  • Close up of Ankh-Morpork on Cormo yarn Two skeins of "Ankh-Morpork" with a crochet and knit swatch
    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.
