Wow, what a scorcher! We managed not to melt too much, but preparing for a show was more challenging than usual. We did it and are all set up at the NEC Birmingham for The Festival Of Quilts show. As the summer clear-out went so well, we found a few other bits we hope you will like.

Suri Marls

Suri marl is a lightweight 4ply yarn, made with 100% natural Suri fibre. We don’t even dye it because the natural shades are beautiful on their own. The marled effect is created by plying two strands of different colours together. Suri has such a wonderful drape and is super soft against your skin.

Do you remember the Hare Tor shawl in issue 152 of The Knitter? Anniken Allis designed this stunning shawl using the Suri marls!

UK Alpaca Enamel Pins

Who doesn’t love an enamel pin? I personally love to collect them and I am definitely adding this to my collection. For anyone that buys one and comes to see us at any show wearing it, we will give you a 10% discount on any purchase
