You'll probably have noticed that at This Is Knit, we love lace rather a lot. So we're tremendously excited to be organising the first ever Irish Indie Dyers Yarn Club! The Club will run from January to March 2013, and each month, the members will receive a completely exclusive colourway of a stunning lace yarn from a different Irish indie dyer. We're very proud that the participating dyers are Coolree Yarns, the Dublin Dye Company and Hedgehog Fibres. The exact yarns and colours are a secret (shhh!), but these craftspeople produce stunning yarn like the alpaca lace used in the Cold Mountain stole at the top of this post, or like this delicious cashmere laceweight from Hedgehog Fibres... ...and just look at the colour intensity that Coolree Yarns achieves.... This club will have elegance and luxury in spades: from sparkles and silk to cashmere and alpaca, we'll have beautiful bases in delicious shades, dyed with care and skill expressly for the Club. The Club is limited to just twenty memberships, so if you fancy a treat for yourself or if you're looking for a very special gift for a knitter or crocheter, why not visit the This Is Knit booking page from Saturday next, December 1st. We have specific packages inclusive of postage to anywhere in the world, so be sure to select the option for your region (and if you like, you can choose to pick up your lovely lacy surprise in person at the shop each month!).
