Mini Skeins | Shop Preview

 
MiniSkeins (8 of 7).jpg

Super Sweet Sock mini skeins are here! Each mini skein set comes with enough to make an average pair of socks or small accessory, and features a total of 410 meters (450 yards) of fingering weight. Each skein is long enough to fit on your yarn swift, and each comes with ties to ensure they won't tangle!

I have created four beautiful palettes that pair perfectly together, should you wish to use more than one. ROMANCE has complex purples, the perfect red and a bright pop of pink. SOFT CITRUS (used here) mixes some of my current favourite colourways - pinks that shift to gold, bright spices, and a mossy green. WEST COAST is inspired by my beautiful home - soft turquoises, smoky browns, and the greenest green. And FARMHOUSE is a subtle collection of true greys and warm grey-browns, so dreamy!

Cashmerino 20 | Shop Preview

 

I've put together a small preview of some of the colourways I have dyed for an upcoming shop update. For the last week or so I have been working with the wonderful Cashmerino 20, a fingering weight blend of merino, cashmere and nylon (70%/20%/10%). It is incredibly soft with an exquisite hand and I know you will love working with it as much as I do. It is the perfect choice for summer shawls, light weight sweaters, and baby garments. It also makes for luxurious socks, if you'd like to spoil your toes a little. 

For most of the year I have been filling dyed to orders, so it was nice to have the chance to play around with colour palettes and a few colourways I don't dye very often. Pink frost is a special colourway from this year's Coloured Greys club and is making its first outside appearance in this update. Tea rose, silver leaf, and sweet pea are also past club colourways that aren't often dyed on our Cashmerino 20. Smoky lilac fits right in there too, it's not a club colourway but a rare one that I don't dye often. I find myself drawn to these light coloured greys lately, they all look so pleasing together! Below I've included a few photographs of palettes and colour combinations I came up with while photographing the colourways for this coming update. You can also follow along on Instagram, where I share snapshots and stories of my work in between dye batches. 

This shop update will occur early this week. Advance notice of the date and time have been sent out to our mailing list subscribers.
