I’m so delighted to let you know that batch number 2, Spring 2017, is ready. There’s a new blog post up with all the details of the various special yarns included in this batch. There is a completely different set of farms and sheep breeds this time round and some of the resulting yarns are very small batch indeed and completely unique.
I’m not quite ready to list them in the shop just yet as I’m working on some exciting plans but to keep up to date, and be the first to hear when they’re available, join our newsletter (sign up on home page)!
Once again every stage has taken place in Scotland – grown and naturally dyed in the Highlands and spun in the Borders.
We will be attending a number of shows and festivals during 2017. The latest plans are:
Dornoch Fibre Fest – Dornoch Social Club – Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 March
Dingwall Highland Wool and Textiles Fair – Dingwall Auction Mart – Saturday 27 May
Loch Ness Knit Fest – Inverness Icerink – Friday 13 to Sunday 15 October
Nottingham Yarn Expo – Nottingham – Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November
There’s a few very lonely skeins left in the shop from batch number 1, Autumn 2016………I can’t quite believe that my first ever yarns are almost completely sold out already. Thank you so much for your support, it is very much appreciated!
If you have any thoughts on our yarns or suggestions for what you’d like to see from Black Isle Yarns in the future do please let us know.
