First of all, thank you for all the orders and the emails about the new yarn. I am delighted that you love it as much as I do.
Several people have asked similar questions, so I'll put the answers here for you.
Are any of the colours going to be available again?
Fresh from the oven.
I have tried calling this croissant, brioche, Challah, bloomer, cob and every possible bread-name you can think of but in the end this just looks like a delicious craftsman-baked loaf, so I'm leaving the selection of your personal favourite up to you.
A blend of words which holds something different for each of us.
The juice gets everywhere!
Throw off the work wardrobe and get out those soft, comfortable denims.
Beach huts. Deck chairs. Sandals. Sarongs. Sunshine.
Timber faded by the sun, a mixture of homeliness, warmth and practicality.
Understated, but with hidden depths. An everyday, ordinary guy who thinks he's nothing special, and who would be astonished (and probably embarrassed) if he knew all the nice things people say about him.
How will this work?
There will be more new colours, certainly semi solids and probably a smaller range of variegated yarns. Once the whole range is there, you just need to look in the shop and see if your heart's desire is available in the weekly update. They won't all be in stock all the time, but they will appear on a regular basis.
This means that if you see a project on ravelry in one of the permanent colours, you'll be able to get the same yarn - within the parameters of hand dyeing, not exact, but very close. I'll set up a reference gallery on the blog when I get a minute.
Can I order undyed Clan?
Two people have asked for Nude Clan (the mind boggles) so I will make this available too. It will be washed and dried so that it's ready to use.
A skein of Nude and some Bloke would make great Selbuvotter mitts I think.
Hmmm. Nude Bloke. Hmmm.
Will there be larger quantities for sweaters etc?
In future I'm hoping to do one-off solids in batches of 10 or 20 at once, this will start happening in a week or two. Someone emailed me last night to ask for half a dozen for a fine-weight sweater and that's a really good idea, so If you are interested in garment-quantities of yarn this will make it possible to order enough to make something rather special. If you would like to order enough for a sweater in one of the permanent collection colours, please get in touch. I may not be able to do them right away, but I'm happy to discuss special orders where a colour match is important.
