Not just for knitting

You may have all forgotten that we also sell a few Colinette Yarns. There are a few listed here, and I would remind you that they aren’t just for knitting!

These, Giotto and Tagliatelle, are just a couple of the colourways listed – and you may remember that they were well favoured by the late and very lamented Val Campbell Harding.

Yes, they do knit into beautiful scarves or garments, but they can also be added to stitched work or used on the embellisher. They are available in varying quantities, so first come, first served. Postage and packing is included on each, but if you buy more than one there will be a refund winging your way.

Don’t miss out – you’ll find them here. Each is 100g and costs Β£11.75 including post and packing to the UK. Drop me a note if they are to be sent to anywhere else in the world.

Watch out for a few changes over the next little while – and a few more listings if I can find the time and energy. I’m so grateful for a friendly post boy πŸ˜‰

Mixing colours

The summer sun brings the ideal weather for dyeing outside… Dyes always work better in heat.

So that’s what I’ve been doing this morning – standing with my back to the sun mixing colours for some Vegetarian Silk. However, the breeze was also rather strong – so I’ve been chasing dye containers too – as can be seen in the picture at the top. Yes, I did wear gloves – but the red one blew into the rose bush and I didn’t want to puncture them…..

Now it’s just a question of waiting for a few more hours and then the rinsing will begin. Vegetarian silk is very delicate in its wet state. It is easy to destroy it completely. However, slowly and gently is the key, and the results are always worth waiting for.


If you need some for your workshops with Isobel Hall I suggest you get in touch as soon as possible. There may not be much choice of colour – this will be my last dyeing session until late September at least. If you are going to the Festival of Quilts you won’t find it there as we are the only people to dye it and we aren’t visiting this year.

They should be ready for despatch at the beginning of next week – possibly sooner if the good weather continues. The contact form below will make it easier for you to contact us.
