There are 7 main colour trends this Autumn/Winter 18/19 season.
We’ve got many of these colours in a variety of yarns so pop in the shop and have a look! They are gorgeous colours and its also nice to see mustard yellow still on trend. Greys are still popular and the cherry reds look sumptuous!

We are a Rowan supplier and we stock Felted Tweed and Brushed Fleece. If you want to buy other ranges from the Rowan Brand, just ask and you can look at the shade cards and order through us! No charge for this service. However, we can only do orders from 8 Balls plus. As they come in packs of 10. We can’t do this for single balls.
With a roving quality and a soft twist that glides off the needles, Re:treat creates smooth, light fabrics with a luxurious silky texture. Re:treat proudly bears the new British Wool logo, a guarantee that it is British to the core from sheep to showroom. The wool selected to make Re:treat comes from an exciting cross breed of Bluefaced Leicester – famous in British hand knitting for its soft handle – and Kerry Hill – renown for its distinctive markings and clean white fleece.
Spun with skill and care, Re:treat proudly flies the flag for the unbeatable quality of British yarn today.
In a combination of 11 calming and uplifting harmonious shades – and two marled colour-ways – Re:treat is the perfect yarn to relax and unwind with.
WHO LOVES A 4ply/Fingering weight?
We have fallen in love with Silky Lace from Katia’s concept range. Silky Lace is a silky shiny yarn available in soft colours. A fabulous yarn for making comfortable autumn jumpers and light weight women’s jackets. The warm blend of silk and merino makes it an ideal choice for warm shawls.
The yardage on these balls is quite something for the price too! £8.50 a ball for 260metres. So you can do a jumper out of 5 balls!
Tension: 26sts 34 rows
Composition: 80% Merino; 20% Silk
Washing Instructions: Machine Washable 30°C, to be on the safe side wash a test square or hand wash.
We do try to keep our stock levels high but as you can imagine being a small shop our levels do go down quite quickly, so we do have deliveries as often as possible. Just so you are aware, some companies have such high minimum orders – around £500 to £800 so we do have to wait until we’ve reached that amount before we can order more yarn. This does make it frustrating for us and our customers at times. (Drops yarn for example) The inventory on the web is our ACTUAL stock – the shop doesn’t have different inventory so you can always pop online to see what we have. If in doubt email us and we can put in a special order for you (if possible) or add it to our next order. So please ask at anytime.
