Fibre Block Party and Update

It's Fibre Block Party weekend! This is a fab new virtual yarn event with a great line up of vendors and workshops too! Head over to Fibre Block Party on Instagram and catch us chatting about our products and general yarny-ness! I'll be going live at 2.30 pm BST with my FBP special, Celebrate!  I loved creating this colourway so much that I ended up putting together the beginnings of a Fusion Brights collection!

Collaborations Galore!

I'm not sure what happened this week! I moved the dyeing in to the "Dye Shed" and all of the collaborations happened at the same time! Well, by "all" I mean two!

The January Wanderlust Yarn Club is finally here!

January Wanderlust Yarn Club I'm serious!

It's now on the website, where it shall remain for another week, after which I will be making sure your orders go out within the first week of Februrary.The inspiration for this colourway comes from a beautiful piece of African wax cloth that was part of a set...
