  • Copper Gasket – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    £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.

  • Honey Sunrise – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    £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.

The Exmoor Blueface and Bluefaced Leicester wools provide super softness and warmth, while the Wensleydale wool lends lustre and a subtle shine to the blend. It's a yarn dyer and crafter's dream! We recommend it for a wide range of stitch patterns and projects.

    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.
  • Hocus Crocus – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    £22.00
    Who doesn't love spring? All the colours of fresh new leaves and blooms can be found in this colourway. Becci wrote a blog post about it here. 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.

    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.
  • Ocean Welle: Ocean Wave
    A dreamy turquoise teal, this colourway looks stunning by itself and can also be paired with both warm and cool colours. It works up with a subtle variance in tone, bringing texture and life to your project.

  • Pfauenauge – Nene 4 Ply 100g

    Pfauenauge: Peacock's Eye
    An intense almost iridescent blue, this colourway looks stunning by itself and can also be paired with both warm and cool colours. It works up with a subtle variance in tone, bringing texture and life to your project. The group photo shows it sat in between colourways Ocean Welle and Unterwasserwelt.

  • Khaki greens and browns make up this gently variegated yarn, inspired by canal locks. It will work up with some visual interest, but not so busy that it will overwhelm textured stitch patterns.
