The Yarn Tart and proud
I don't know where the time has gone but it's June already. We've had a busy few weeks at Suffolk Socks HQ. After lots of lovely comments and encouragement I've decided to launch my own yarn label.
I'm still Julie of Suffolk Socks but my new yarn label is, tada... THE YARN TART! How fab is that name ? Why THE YARN TART? Months ago my husband said I was a tart with my yarn, and so it stuck and I'm super duper excited to be a yarn tart. I have been dyeing up a storm! Already in stock we have a selection of 4 ply hand dyed yarns on different bases. Ted base is 75% BFL/25% nylon approx 420 m a great bristish yarn, Jive base is 80% High twist superwash Merino/20% nylon approx 365m and our Tweed base is 85% SW Merino/15 donegal neps approx 420m.
To celebrate the arrival of 'THE YARN TART' we are offering a fabulous 3 month subscription if you'd like to become a member of THE YARN TART Club for July, August and September. Becoming a member of THE YARN TART club makes available to you exclusive coloursways hand dyed by me, these yarns will not be available to buy in the shop whilst the 3 month subscription is running. Each month you'll receive something different, there may be a skein, a sock blank or 2 x 50gm skeins popping through your door with guaranteed deliciousness and a few extra goodies *SPOILER ALERT* you'll get a sneak peak of my new sock design that will be released later in the year.[caption id="attachment_914" align="aligncenter" width="621"] THE YARN TART - tweed[/caption][caption id="attachment_913" align="aligncenter" width="622"] THE YARN TART - Jive[/caption][caption id="attachment_912" align="aligncenter" width="624"] THE YARN TART - Ted Base[/caption]
Pop over to Suffolk Socks and see some of the gorgeousness thats available. I've already cast on Lady stash and Ladette to lady in the Ted base. My needles cant go fast enough as I want to cast them all on.
