New goodies coming August 1!

By

Our store reopens August 1st, and there have been changes! Sitting down? Got a drink? Here we go!

We are bringing back worsted. Because Winter Is Coming.

Tobermory worsted, our hard-wearing, tough-love, 100% superwash merino base is going to be back on the list of bases you can choose from. We are awaiting our first worsted shipments, but look forward to seeing this by mid-month!

Twins Gradients, in every base.

Instead of’Sock Options’ available in only MCN Sport and 80/20 sock, we are renaming the product ‘Twins’ and you will be able to order them in any base, including DK and Worsted. Want a pair of matched gradients for worsted weight mittens? This is it.

Killarney Sock just got more awesome.

Killarney sock now comes in generous 500 yard, 150g skeins. Are you tired of shawlettes? There is enough yardage here to make sure you always have comfy sized projects. This one was a tough call, because in order to appreciate the full gradient you generally have to use at least 80% of a skein, and many shawl projects are written for about 400 yards. However, we did the research, and it seems that more is better!

New Colours in our permanent line – Heron and Sundown.

Heron – Mint to warm charcoal. Serene, almost-neutral and easy to wear.

Heron

Sundown – Coral to fuchsia to purple. Bright and punchy, warm and delicious.

MASTER-LIST---OMBRE18

And now… some not so amazing news:

Palettes and Neutrals are missing from our site for now. I’ve got big plans for those, but I’m a perfectionist. Until I feel totally happy with them, they will not be available for sale.

We have had to raise our prices. It hurts, but we are still a young company, and learning as we go. I crunched the numbers, ran a few different scenarios, and there it was; ombré takes a long time to dye and there is just no way around it. It’s our dream to do this full time, but we’ve got to make it work. Our new price list is as follows:
