News: It’s Wovember! I am delighted to have been ask to join in the hosting fun! Join in with a WAL and the photo contest.
All about our collective appreciation for wool, throughout WOVEMBER we will be posting articles and stories that talk of the whole wool journey as well as tackling the misappropriation of terms relating to wool and how these are very loosely applied in fashion. Real wool comes from real sheep!
Yarn Preview – Blacker West Country Tweed DK is due out on the 14th Nov. I have a sneak preview to share with you! Product details will be added here on the launch day (14th). The yarn is a blend of Teeswater cross and Black Welsh Mountain fleece and the flocks are less than 100 miles apart – it knits up into a beautiful fabric with a lot of spring, softness and flashes of subtle coloured nepps.

The WIPalong finishes in a week and I am sure you could still take part! Check out the KB group and the Yarns from the Plain group for chat threads and FO galleries.
