In the selection this week are some of our favourite yarns for jumpers, and some inspiring plants and home textile books. It's the first time Lopi and Einrúm have been available since early March! A reminder that this week’s collection items are ONLY available until Tuesday 21st July, and then will be replaced by the next birthday sale update.

This week is Bex's birthday picks and she has also picked the organisation that 50% of all digital sales will go to: the Raven Trust. RAVEN stands for Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs. The organisation states "RAVEN’s vision is a country that embraces the ancestral laws of Indigenous Peoples and their equitable access to the justice system within a thriving natural habitat." To donate directly please visit their page here.

Yarns Bex Loves

Each yarn featured in this week's collection is 15% off its usual price. This is your last chance to stock up on Léttlopi and Einrúm before they go away for the Summer. Don't worry, they will be restocked and back in the Autumn. We will not be restocking Blåne, so if there's a colour you're excited about, get it now while we have it! Bleideag and Strokkur kits have sold out in record time, but don’t worry, we know how much you love them and will be back with more kits in the autumn! Signup to be notified when the kits are back in stock.
