Birthday Sale Goes Went Today...

.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month. The sale will take the form of a weekly update which has a different group of sale products, a special treat for you to explore each week. As we have a team of July birthday babies, there will be product picks from Ysolda, Rachel, and Bex for their birthday weeks as well as a Rauma week and all digital patterns week too.

In the selection this week is a combination of limited edition yarns we won't be restocking after the sale, favourites we just love and some one-of-a-kind clearance items from our dye studio here in Edinburgh. A reminder that this week’s collection items are ONLY available until Tuesday 7th July then will be replaced by the next birthday sale update.

This week is Ysolda's birthday picks and she has also picked the organisation that 50% of all digital sales will go to: the NFC Momentum Fund. The NFC Momentum Fund is a donor-advised charitable fund that Karida Collins of Neighborhood Fiber Co. established to allow tax deductible donations NFC collect to be dispersed to a variety of organisations working for justice, empowerment, and equality.

Each yarn featured in this week's collection is 15% off it's 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!


We love these yarns but we need to reduce our inventory this year to make way for new products so once these are sold, they won't be restocked here again!
