Lace knitting patterns and ideas for our fine naturally dyed wool.
We are very much looking forward to once more being at Pour l'Amour du Fil in Nantes from April 19th - 23rd. We will be on stand D21 and as usual we will have our three wools in loads of naturally dye colours, some new kits including Fresco by Kieran Foley and an opportunity to take part in a competition.
As usual there will be many prestigious designers present such as AMY BUTLER, BRIGITTE HEITLAND, MINICK AND SIMPSON and KAFFE FASSETT . They will share their experience in numerous workshops and conferences. In addition, a book the Artisan collection by Kaffe ...
I know it is Spring in date if not in fact. But none the less today we are launching 'winter in Creuse", the second in the series of Creuse shawls designed by Hélène Marcy.

Many of us are looking forward no doubt to a quiet family time next week, the nights are at their longest in the northern hemisphere and it is time to draw the curtains and hopefully relax. In our family we always look forward to the lights that shine indoors at this time of year but this year there is an extra bit of colour radiating through the superb Renaissance Stripes shawl created by Kieran Foley. It represents the natural dyeing work we do in a truly beautiful artist form.
Beaucoup d'entre nous sont impatients à un temps de famille ...

I have had the enormous pleasure of the last weeks to watch the fine lace-weight growing as if by magic into something magnificent.
Je ai eu l'immense plaisir de regarder les dernières semaines la laine dentelle transformer comme par magie en quelque chose de magnifique.

As you have probably read in our newsletter we had a lot of people asking at L'Aiguille en Fête what could be done with 12 skeins of our lace / crewel wool.
Andie is busy with her crochet hook at the moment but we thought it might be nice to throw the question open to you embroiderers, knitters and crocheters.
So what can YOU do with 12 or 18 of our 25m skeins?
For those wishing to participate and also for those that couldn't come to L'Aiguille en Fête we will make two on-line packages:
- one of 12 ...
I have just returned and am still glowing from the natural dyeing course I was asked to give at the parco della villa Piazzo Pettinengo, near Biella, Italy by The Wool Box. I love Italy and especially this northern corner where my wool is so expertly spun. This workshop experience was good I think for everybody, the organisation was eager and friendly and deliciously Italian, the venue and organic food were superb and everyone involved, organisers, staff and students were warm, interested and relaxed as only Italians (and some from England) can be. AND the sun shone for us for ...

Les Journées Internationales de la Laine in Felletin is a whirlwind of wool every year but this year it surpassed itself in every way. The organisers were friendly and helpful, even helping to carry in our wares for us and smilingly providing lunch and pancakes against the odds all week-end. Our fellow exhibitors were many and varied showcasing every aspect of wool and a good slice of the million creative things you can do with it.
