We’re adding a new yarn base to the shop – and the first few skeins which we dyed as samples will be available in the next shop update.

It’s gorgeously fluffy stuff – the blend of kid mohair and silk is beautifully soft and it dyes like a dream. It’s a laceweight yarn with 420 meters to each 50g skein. At the moment I’m knitting with a strand of this and our BFL, silk and alpaca, and it’s making me very happy.

We’d like to give it a name – and yes, we’re very tempted by fluffy mcfluff face. But a shorter name would be better as it needs to go on all the shop listings.So – help us come up with a name. It needs to be ten letters or less.

Leave your suggestions below and if we use one of them then the person who suggested it will win the fluffy skein of their choiceThe prize can be shipped worldwide.

We’ll pick a winner at 1800 on Tuesday 3rd March, so I’ll have time to put the new name on the labels before it goes on sale.
