Welcome to the third chapter of our brand new and exciting yarn club. In January we met Maggie who had just moved into Coopers cottage on Lavender Lane.
This month we are going to the Village shop, known locally as smithy’s. Squiddle village shop is the most picture perfect, instagram worthy setting; in fact it has been used for a few photos shoots for magazines such as country homes!
A stone double fronted building with amazing bay windows showing off all the freshly baked bread. Hanging baskets and pots of seasonal bulbs straddle the wooden display crates showing off all the locally grown seasonal veg fruit and veg. Leaning elegantly against the wall is a vintage bicycle complete with bread basket on the front.
Squiddle Village is a quintessential English Village; stone cottages with thatched roofs and cottage gardens surround the village green and duck pond. The three ships Inn pub is at the heart of the community and hub for all the gossip!
Join us throughout 2022 as we get to know all the residents of the village, there will be so many shenanigans involving the WI and the allotment society of course.
Having learnt so much from the success of the Rainbow chronicles our 2021 yarn club we have decided to run this club similarly; we will always show you all the yarn for that months club upfront, we will have ready to ship yarns and pre-orders available. Pre- orders will stay open for one week allowing everybody regardless of time zones to be able to join in with the club without worrying about things selling out.
As the months evolve our aim to is meet demand with ready to ship yarns and less so on pre-orders, again we managed this successfully through 2021.

75% superwash merino
10 x 10g 42m each
This yarn is an ideal yarn for all your projects, the nylon adds strength making it perfect for socks yet it is beautifully soft for shawls and garments.
Super wash yarn is machine washable on a cool wash, however I always wash my hand knits by hand and would always recommend doing so.
Every effort has been made to exhaust the dye bath and rinse the yarn thoroughly, however minimal bleeding may occur on the first wash.
All yarn is dyed by hand using professional acid dye, whilst my colourways are repeatable no two skeins will be identical and I therefore recommend buying all the yarn you require for your project together.
