Update day coming soon: Ready, steady…

It’s nearly update day for the Fleece Cottage Yarns Etsy shop! Lots of silk laceweights (mulberry and Tussah) are currently being wound and will be landing on the shelves at 8pm on Wednesday 29th January (UK time).

But first, a little sneak preview before they go off for their beauty shots…

Partway through reskeining…

Here are the mulberry silks:

Left to right: Glowing ruby (actually a merino/silk lace skein that’s sneaked into the update!); A swarm of golden bees; Cold northern moon; Messenger at midnight; A girdle of pearl; The approach of twilight

And the Tussah silks:

Clockwise from bottom: Snow and roses; First faint winter’s dawn; Rosy-fingered dawn; East through the wintry sea; Been inside a river for quite a long time

There’ll be a couple more to join them once they’ve finished drying off.

At this point I should mention that there is going to be a slight increase in the prices of the yarns in shop. The silk laceweights will go up from £13 to £15. As demand for the yarns has really taken off, I’m spending a lot more time on the shop and have to take into account the associated running costs – I hope you understand!

Instead of fiddling with the prices bit by bit over the next few months, I thought it would be best to do the increase in one go so it’s out of the way and everyone knows where they are.

In return, I’m going to be doing some promotions and giveaways over the next few months so there’s lots to look forward to!
