Preparing for Woolfest 2014
I have been spinning like a mad thing and have plenty different breeds of sheeps wool ready to make that special something, starting from £5 a 25g hank of something nice, all the way to luxury cashmere and silk blends.... just for starters - Shetland, Gotland, Merino, Norwegian, Finnish, Jacob, Masham, Cheviot the list goes on!
There are lots of lovely new buttons either presented on cards - easy to grab from a busy stand - or buy individually from the huge selection on the table. Ranging from 5p to £1 per button, there is surely a button for every project!
If you are looking for something ready made, then look no further, I have lots of hats, scarves, shawls, crocheted bowls, knitted teddies, some items made from my own hand spun yarns, others from good quality commercial yarns.
I've got patterns for all my designs too - either paper copies or downloadable pdf versions.
If you want a kit putting together for a gift, then we can combine yarn, pattern and needles or hooks and of course any buttons you might need to embellish!
You will find bamboo knitting needles - both straight and circular in all kinds of sizes and lengths of cables from £2 up to £3.50 for really chunky ones.
Also available, colourful aluminium crochet hooks in sizes from 2mm to 10mm, from £1 each or a full set of 12 for just £9, you can have a hook for every occasion.
New on my stand this year will be beautiful coloured glass beads for knitting or crocheting with - all size 6 (4mm) and costing £4 for 50grams.
Also new on my stand are the following spinning and felting fibres, all blended together ready to roll onto your bobbins and spindles - or indeed felting mats! Created from a range of fibres including Shetland, Bluefaced Leicester, Merino, Polwarth, Silk and Bamboo. Priced at £6 per 100g, I think they might go quickly, so if you want to pre-order any, then please use the contact form here to let me know what you want and I'll have it ready for you to collect at Woolfest! I will also have some other fibres of more unusual sheep breeds, so do drop by to have a look-see..
