Last week I went to Dundee to visit yarn shop Fluph and the wondrous proprietress Leona Jayne Kelly (and her two dogs Oskar and Arthur). We talk about wool, dyeing, the day-to-day of running a yarn shop and the juggling involved. We have a right old laugh too and listen in for a lovely give-away too!
Here we are with part two of my interview with Rachel Atkinson. Today we discuss labels, learning curves and the future of British wool!
Today I have the first part of an interview with Rachel Atkinson. We chat about her new yarn Daughter of a Shepherd ahead of it’s debut at Edinburgh Yarn Festival
The fifty-second episode of the podcast is here and I am in awe of all the Natures Shades fun going on!
it’s a long one! I look back at 2015 and think ahead a little.
Having looked at designs which highlight the very best of what Mother Nature gave our sheepy friends, I thought that it might be an idea to think about transmuting some of our favourite colourful designs into natural shades….Let’s go grayscale! You may also see here that I use the term gradient very loosely.
We know that there are lots of gradient packs of coloured yarns out there….mini skeins of unicorn tails or teeny balls of yarns like gobstoppers, but there isn’t the same choice when it comes to the same for naturals there isn’t as much in terms of lovely packs or nuggets of naturally coloured loveliness.
However there are a few ways to work with what you might have in stash…and being a reader of KB you probably have quite a few natural British odds and ends, yes?! I thought so.
More natural gradients for you – Perfect for keeping warm this winter and looking spectacular too. I also have more yarny suggestions from our sponsor BritYarn to help further enable you!
