Wooly Wednesday

One of the most popular yarns in our online shop are our sock weight yarns. We have several bases, Smooshie (the silk, wool blend) Sock (superwash BFL) Stardust (the one with the sparkle) and now we have the Rustic sock!

Rustic sock is spun up from our own sheep here on the smallholding at a local mill and then dyed here on the holding ready for you to knit into the perfect sock weight project. Rustic sock is the little sister of the Rustic DK. It is the same blend of Llanwennog, Beulah and Welsh white and is a gorgeous bouncy yarn that just drinks in the dyes. It knits up pretty darned nicely too! (though I am not at the stage of sharing my projects in it just yet!)

Last Friday I released the first two colourways in this base Dragon’s blood and Deep Blue Sea.

These two colourways are just gorgeous, deep, semi solid, and this yarn would make a super comfy pair of socks for walking. A shawl or scarf to keep your neck warm or a slouchie beanie hat to keep the frost off your ears!

This week I will be releasing a few more colourways in this yarn!

Winter Skyscape, Wooded walks, Oer (pronounced oi-r rolling the r

slightly, which is Welsh for cold)

Crafts from the Smallholding on the hill

For all our beautiful, sustainable Welsh yarns, in a range of vibrant colours

What colours should I dye up next?

Are you looking forward to spring colours?

Or shall I keep on with the winter inspirations….. I am thinking some fireside colours with reds, yellows and oranges….
