We've always loved Marie Wallin's
designs. Initially it was the excitement of opening a new Rowan Magazine each time it arrived in the shop, and now it's the thrill of her selecting our yarns to work with in her independent designs. She chose Titus
as the first yarn to work with after leaving Rowan, and now she is launching a brand new design, Brambling, in Dovestone Natural Aran
at Woolfest this weekend.
Marie says: “I’ve always admired baa ram ewe’s yarns and their support for British made yarn, so when I was sent some Dovestone Natural Aran over a year ago, I knew that I had to use it. The natural undyed sheep breed colours were perfect for an all over two colour fairisle. I wanted the design to be in bands of fairisle and so I created ‘Brambling’. This slightly oversized chunky sweater will be ideal for walking in the countryside or for just keeping warm at home. Georgia, my model, loved this design so much that she kept it as apart of her modelling fee!”
To celebrate the launch of Brambling, and to help you make it, we're offering 10% off 8 hanks or more of Dovestone Natural Aran when you buy the pattern from Marie. If you're heading to Woolfest, she'll be on stand D74-75. You'll also be able to download the pattern from her website
or Ravelry from 1st July and you'll be given a code to unlock your discount when you order from us online. Or just come to our stand at Woolfest with your pattern!
If you are heading to Woolfest this weekend, it will be the last show we'll be selling our Dovestone dk
too. After our flash sale last weekend we have just a few shades left and we'll be offering these at 25% off at the show. We'll also have a good selection of our ever popular British Wool socks
as well as favourites like Titus
, the new Pip Colourwork
and our Dovestone Naturals
range- head to stand J205-206 for a warm welcome from Jess and Katherine.
