Greetings from Yorkshire! It’s been over two weeks since we closed our crowdfunder campaign and we are pleased to announce that we raised a total of £16,020! This is a huge sum of money that will be pivotal in the survival of our business and we’re already in the stages of planning new launches and collaborations for 2021. Of course we want to thank all of you for your support and generosity. We started 2021 unsure of how long our business would continue to survive in the current climate, but your support has given us the opportunity to get our little business back on its feet and back at what we do best, creating unique and inspiring products!
As some of you may be aware, the timescale for yarn production can take up to 4-6 months, so while we are doing everything we can to get our shelves restocked, it is something that will take time to do. We’ve also arrived at the conclusion that relying solely on our yarn lines in this current climate is both risky and unsustainable, so while it is something we want to keep doing, it is also important that we diversify the business. As our first step, we have given our Little Yorkshire shop a refresh and have decided to continue stocking local artisan products for the foreseeable future. In the past couple of weeks we’ve worked hard to get some beautiful stock in our shop including luxury wool blankets, embroidery, cross stitch and needle felting kits. We are also in the process of having a mini restock of some yarn, so keep an eye out on our website.
While we have a long road ahead before our business will be completely back to normal, we hope you will continue to support us on our journey. For all the negatives of the past year, one huge positive is that we have really enjoyed connecting with our customers and hearing how much you value our business. We will let you know of new launches in the near future, but in the meantime stay safe and happy knitting!
