Those of you with children or grandchildren of a certain age (or just a facebook account) will have noticed the fashion for mermaid (and shark) tail blankets. We've been keeping an eye on patterns and yarns for this so when our Designer Yarns rep came in with yarn and pattern we couldn't not order it! Its an interesting yarn -- quite fluffy and cosy made up of acrylic, polyester, wool, viscose and nylon. The pattern takes between two and four balls (small child up to adult) and is free to download on Ravelry (or come into the shop and we'll show you). You can of course knit anything else with the yarn too -- jumpers, scarves, hats -- the patterns are in the shop now. We expect to see lots of mermaids around the village now though!

Here we will share our experience of setting up a local yarn shop in South Wales.
