Oooh, it’s been rather a long time since the last post! It’s all been a bit busy here as Fleece Cottage has become something of a building site over the last 3 months. Our cosy cottage is expanding to become a forever family home, with the added bonus of increased dyeing space! The downside has been that shop updates have had to be scaled back a bit while we get through this phase, so I hope you’ll bear with me for the time being.
The good news is that the next shop update will be this Wednesday (21st May, 8pm BST) and there will be lots of summery silks to complement the beautiful warm weather we’ve been having.
In the meantime, if there is a particular yarny dream that you have in mind, you can always request a custom order. Here are a couple of the custom orders that I’ve dyed recently:
This luxurious cashmere/silk blend 4ply was dyed for a snowflakes and icicles themed shawl and the customer wanted a pale and chilly ice-blue for their project. There’s some more of this gorgeous yarn in a pearl grey colour in the shop at the moment…
At the other end of the scale, this cheerful and sunny bright yellow DK was dyed for a customer to make her little yellow-loving son a new tank top. The skeins were named ‘Slowly eating custard pudding’ from one of Edward Lear’s nonsense poems.
If you are interested in commissioning a custom yarn, do get in touch with me via the Etsy shop (there’s a ‘request custom order’ button on the left sidebar of the shop).
Anyway, the latest skeins for Wednesday’s update having been drying in the sun and I’ll be back soon to share some more works-in-progress with you…
