This week is Rachel's birthday picks and she has also picked the organisation that 50% of all digital sales will go to: the Black Neurodiversity Assessment Fund created by Tyla Grant. Tyla writes "B+ND was created in response to the lack of support for Black people offered by existing organisations that help people with conditions such as Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia and Tourettes syndrome. This fund will provide grants to Black young people who suspect they are Neurodiverse enabling them to access screenings and where possible assessments." Donate directly here.

Yarns Rachel Loves

Each yarn featured in this week's collection is 15% off its usual price. This is your last chance to stock up before they go away for the Summer. Don't worry, they will be restocked and back in the Autumn!

Rachel says she would happily knit all of her projects with De Rerum Natura yarns. De Rerum Natura is a small yarn producer with a thoughtful approach to sourcing and raw materials. All the manufacturing stages are performed in France, keeping processing and energy use to a minimum. The wool in each yarn line is a blend of French and European merino, produced in the most ecological way with concern for both the wellbeing of sheep and the environment.
