CH: 246: Sweden Holiday Recap, Word for the Year & 19 in 2019

Helen —  January 11, 2019 — Leave a comment

It’s wonderful to be back! Today I have a nice long chatty catch-up episode of the podcast for you, to kick the new Curious Handmade Year off right. I have stories from our time in Sweden and I share some hopes and dreams for the year ahead, with my word for the year and most of my 19 in 2019 Happiness Project List.

Alongside an eclectic yarn range, which includes Hazel Knits, Icelandic Lopi & CoopKnits, we stock a carefully chosen selection of needles and notions. We’ve also recently launched ‘hand dyed by meadowyarn’, our very own in-house, hand-dyed yarn range. Working in our tiny dye studio, nestled in the Suffolk countryside, we are able to indulge our love of colour, producing complex tonal, kettle-dyed shades across a range of weights and bases. With regular updates our collections evolve and grow, inspired by the landscape and people around us.


AYS is a wool boutique specialising in hand dyed yarns and luxury fibres from around the world. You’ll always find a well curated collection of yarns and colors on the shelves and a friendly knowledgeable staff on hand. Some of our favourite brands include Hedgehog Fibres, SweetGeorgia Yarn, Julie Asselin, Shibui Knits and The Fibre Co. You can find A Yarn Story on Walcot Street in Bath or online at
