Cannot believe that this will be my 7th year exhibiting at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival and it doesn’t get any easier curating a collection for the show, amidst so many wonderful exhibitors from the UK and Europe This is a very brief snapshot of what you might find next week on my stand and if there are any left after the event, they will be available for sale in my Marchmont shop.
The shop in Marchmont will be closed on 15th, 16th and 17th March, and re-open on Sunday after lunch, as I will be exhibiting at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival. This will be my fifth year and I will be taking a selection of highly desirable yarns and needles to add to your collection!
Brands will include Lykke needles, Uschitita, Olann, Hedgehog Fibres, Lotus Cashmere, Yarn from North Ronaldsay, Orkney Angora, Knit Collage, Plotlupi, Malabrigo, Habu Textiles, Madelinetosh, ITO yarns and Riverside Studios from Canada. See you there!
Goodness, the Indie Burgh Yarn Crawl is tomorrow!
To celebrate the occasion, there will be a 2% discount on all purchases on the day, however, some items are not included in this offer which include Woolly Originals handmade bags.
There is a sale on the following products which are now being discontinued from the shop
Araucania Botany Lace – 100% Merino Wool, 100g/410m – £9.50 per skein.

New arrivals in the shop include – Kate Davies’s new Book of Haps, don’t forget that she will be making an appearance and signing copies at Kathy’s Knits on Saturday, 11th June, which is also part of the Indie Burgh Yarn Crawl organised by Ginger Twist Studios.
I am now also starting to stock Hedgehog Fibres – currently their Sock Yarn, Skinny Singles and Mini Skeins.
Beata dyes her yarn in Cork, Ireland and covers the wide spectrum of colours, tones and moods. She is immensely popular and has a wide international following.
I have been following her progress probably for over eight years, from when she was a very small indie dyer. Her colours and choice of bases continue to inspire me.
She has some lovely free patterns on her website that knit really well with her hand dyed yarns, but her yarns have really inspired many of Stephen West’s designs.
