Today on the Curious Handmade Podcast I can finally reveal the two secret designs I’ve created as collaborations for Edinburgh Yarn Festival. I’m on my way to EYF right now, and I’m so excited to see everyone: there are two designated meetup points, but I also hope for lots of serendipitous meetings out and about at the Festival. I also have a review of the absolutely stunning new collection from Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki: Interpretations Vol. 6.
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 www.ayarnstory.co.uk
While there’s not an official podcaster Lounge at this year’s EYF, there will be a few chances for me to meet up with listeners. Come find me:
Friday at 12:15 at the Podcaster table in the Marquee.
Friday from 1pm to 3pm I will be at the A Yarn Story stand.
