New in the shop – Knit Cosmic Strings

Delighted to be stocking a new Edinburgh based indie dyer in the shop – Knit Cosmic Strings.isla_280x280.20498525_ntmgd13n

The team consists of Phu and Bea, both are biologists by day, but completely bitten by the hand dyeing bug, they spend their evenings creating amazing hand dyed wool!

I discovered them on Instagram and Etsy and I am amazed how they have managed to develop such a beautiful and contemporary range of hand painted yarns in a very short space of time.IMG_3805

Their colourways remind me of the beautiful patio gardens dotted around Marchmont, the Meadows and the Grange, where the shop is located.IMG_3807
