One of our other favourite British manufacturers, Stylecraft is cheering on crafters and LYSs with make-alongs which you can join on their social media pages. We'll share more about the different projects as Stylecraft posts the projects and we have much of the yarn in stock.
In particular, we love the Granny Celebration Blanket designed by Helen Boreham which is made from Stylecraft Bellissima and Bambino and is available as a pack here.
The yarn pack and pattern is £49.00 and contains 16 balls of yarn together with the pattern.
One of our favourite subjects is British wool and one of the manufacturers in the who really wholeheartedly supports it is West Yorkshire Spinners. All of their wool is British sourced and one of their clear leaders in popularity is Signature Sock yarn. If you haven't already found it Winwick Mum is a facebook page run by Christine Perry, the eponymous Winwick Mum. Christine has collaborated with WYS before and has just released her second book, Seasons, with them together with her second collection of sock yarn. The colours reflect the colours of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter (hence the name of the book). The stitch designs on the socks cleverly represent the seasons with cables of shoots snaking up the sides of the Spring design and lacy icicles cascading down the front of the Winter. I'll leave you to explore Summer and Autumn! The yarn is £7.50/ball and the book £9.50 and are all available here on our website.
