We are delighted to kick off 2024 with our new special yarn club; Layfamilyyarn and friends. This month we welcomed our dear friend Gayna of Tales from Cuckooland fame to the dye studio to take a dye masterclass with Nick with the goal of creating her dream colourway. Cor have we laughed!! There are some behind the scenes highlights on our Instagram feed and Gayna has vlogged the whole experience for her YouTube channel.
Hurkle Durkle ( yarn name chosen by Gayna😊)
While it has fallen out of use, to hurkle-durkle is "to lie in bed or lounge about when one should be up and about". In other words, as Countdown star Susie Dent shared, to hurkle-durkle is to “linger under the covers of a warm bed long after it's time to get up”
Gayna has dyed the first batch of the yarn (24 skeins) and written the yarn bands. Any sales after that batch will be dyed by Nick using Gayna’s exact recipe. The initial batch will be ready to ship with all subsequent orders being a dyed to order listing.
75% superwash merino
if you fancy a contrast mini to make a sock set we have several beautiful shades of brown in our pick and mix range that would work beautifully.
