August Yorkshire Yarn Fest

Posted by Ishrat Khawja on

It's that time again! It's virtual Yorkshire Yarn Fest! As usual, you can find me over at the Yorkshire Yarn Fest Instagram account (at 2:45 pm BST) chatting away about the update. Feel free to let me know if there's anything you'd like to see close up. There are so many amazing vendors taking part. Do join us there! 


Wonderful Woolly Originals Creations

But before I share more about the update have a look at this! 

Beautiful Woolly Originals bag made using Red Sea and Cinnamon merino 4-ply.

Isn't it just beautiful! Sarah of Woolly Originals has made this lovely bag using 100% merino in the Red Sea and Cinnamon colourways. It's even more glorious "in person"! Have a look at the other three stunning bags!


New Colourways and Experiments

So, what will you see in the update? There's some lovely merino nylon high twist. And I seem to have gone through a range of summer to autumn colourways. 

Four bright variegated skeins in pinks, oranges and yellows and lots of speckling.

Meet (from left to right): Pink Palace, Golden Hour, Djemila and Sorbet.

Energise. A vivid, neon yellow blending in to a deep, inky blue.

I've also been experimenting with exciting colours and bases.

Golds, greens and orange on a soft BFL DK base.


A Mohair Silk Substitute

And we have a delicious new base! Suri Silk Cloud is a lovely alternative to Mohair Silk and I can't wait to dye up some other colourways in it!

Philosophical Mini Sets? 

A mini set made of speckled golds with just one, deep aubergine mini.

You'll find some mini sets in tomorrow's update. the sets consist of 5 20g minis in either merino nylon or non superwash merino. I dyed them up with this idea that's been dancing around my head for a while now. Four out of the five minis are almost fade-like or a lot more cohesive and the fifth is a teeny little pop of something different. Something that stands out but fits in, in a way. Something that brings it's own little personality to the set.
