I said goodbye, but now I’m back

Woohoo! Custom orders are back!

They will have a different format from now on and you won’t need to contact me as they will be listed directly on the website. Not all colours and bases will be available, but I have selected a wide range of the most popular bases and colourways and hopefully you’ll find something you love. I’ll also consider other bases and colours if you order 5 or more of the same base/colour combination – just get in touch!

Listings will be going up on Wednesday 31 October at 4pm GMT (for times around the globe click here) and will be available on a first come, first served basis, as there will be limited amounts. I plan on updating them weekly, however, so don’t fret if you miss them the first time around. I will be alternating between superwash and non-superwash every week, though, so on the first week there will be a choice of superwash bases and the following week there will only be non-superwash ones. As always, I am happy to combine orders, so if you are ordering both superwash and non-superwash and would like them sent together, just pop a note to me on Paypal as you check out. Orders will be sent within approximately 4-6 weeks and listings will be marked PRE-ORDER to differentiate them from in-stock items. Pre-order items will be listed by colour and you can choose the base of your preference from the drop down menu.

These will be the available colourways:

Changing Bases

Changing Bases

I have decided to discontinue our single-ply Silky Merino DK in favour of a plied version. This new yarn is lovely and everything you could want from a blend of wool and silk: drapey, smooth, shiny and warm. It’s 50% superwash merino and 50% silk, 212m (251 yards) per 100g skein. With its ply, softness and drape, this yarn will be great for comfortable and durable accessories and garments alike and it’s predecessor, the single ply DK, was very popular so I can’t wait to start seeing finished objects in this base too.  I’m sure this will be very popular in future updates as it already flew off the shelves in the previous update and at 212m per skein there’s a good amount of yarn to whip up some warmer accessories as we head into cooler weather.

Show in 'Nimbostratus' colourway

I hope you love it too!

Welcome!

Come on in, pull up a chair because the kettle is on for a nice soothing cuppa and we’re ready to get settled in over here at our new home. I’ve been so excited about this new change and have lots more fun plans and things to share with you. You can expect more great yarns and plenty of action over here in the blog. Remember to keep up to date with all the latest TUT news, you can join the lovely group on Ravelry and sign up to have the newsletter delivered straight to your inbox.

Right now, I’m getting ready to pack and take a trip to France for a break with my family so of course it means lots of important decisions to make about vacation knitting. How do you decide what to take? I’m only going for a week but even so, there is something special about vacation knitting isn’t there? Do I take a soon to be finished WIP or cast on something new? I have quite a collection of WIPs actually so I could start there but there’s something very inviting about a whole new and indulgent project to cast on as I set off.

What do you like to knit while travelling?
