This is in the yarn that I dyed a few months ago when I visited the wonderful Lilith at her studio (you too can visit). Lilith scribbled a few notes while I was randomly sploshing dye around and while I knew she was a colour genius I was still impressed when she managed to perfectly re-create what I’d done. So now, if you want, you can make your own little shawlettein Ysolda yarn.Once again I forgot to take pictures before I sent the sample off to the magazine, but I think it also works well as part of a more casual outfit, scrunched around your neck. I guess I just need to make my own so that I can show you.

This post was originally in our newsletter last week and since then several subscribers have reached out with incredible kindness to say that they'll miss the club but want to keep supporting us. We appreciate that so much, and, although we obviously need purchases to keep the business going there are lots of other ways that you can support us.

All of them apply to other small yarn businesses, and many of them to small businesses of all kinds.
