Happy Friday !!! and what a friday it is! Queensland and part of New South Wales are in the aftermath of cyclone Debbie ! Wind , lots of water and destruction. My heart goes out to all who are living through it at the moment. We have seem to escape inundation and winds for once and lucky for us there are never really any cyclones around these parts. Fingers crossed ....
It was a bit hard getting all the yarns dry I dyed this week for todays HUGE LAUNCH PARTY, because all of a sudden the temps plummeted and we had some wet air. With a bit of drying near the fire at the last minute all went well and here it is ! A new Sock yarn blend: a collaboration with the Bendigo Woollen Mills who were happy to work with my wishes of a particular sock blend style, feel and blend. Here it is! A sock yarn that is super soft, australian merino, silk and a bit of nylon for strength with a nice meterage of 410 meters per 100 grams! It was very important to me that this yarn was all spun in Australia from Australian Merino.
For todays Launch Party all the sock yarns on offer today will be available at a very special Launch price! Better not keep you waiting ! As it says on my new label for this yarn: Create with Love, Colour your Spirit and Be Awesome ! Happy snaffling !
