We wish a colourful, peaceful and healthy 2020 to all our dear customers.
A big thank you for supporting our little artisan business, it is greatly appreciated especially as we are not always so hot on social media.
There are few shades of the Merinos d'Arles at a lower price to help you kick off to a warm natural New Year.
Here is a brief whizz through some of the things we will be making and doing in 2020.
Punchneedle We have sold punch-needle kits for quite a few years now, ever since we teamed up with the talented punchneedle artist Joni Black. The combination of Joni's designs and our naturally dyed fine embroidery wool is a atmospherically traditional piece. So now we have added some specialist punch needle fabrics and a punch needle to our collection and more kits are in the pipeline. You can find all these in our new Punchneedle page
We have a few markets coming up soon!
