Our new mohair and silk yarn has a name.

Superhero Genes Phantom Blue Moonbroch kid mohair and silk yarn hand dyed in Yorkshire by The Knitting Goddess

Moonbroch is an old Scots term meaning a haze or halo which surrounds the moon.

I need to thank LJ of Rusty Ferret Yarn for the name – it’s absolutely perfect. She’s good at names – just check out some of the gems on her new British BFL Masham base.

Thank you to everyone who made suggestions – it’s very much appreciated.

The first batch of the new yarn is scheduled to be in the shop on Thursday at 1900. As the first batch was a small trial run we’re going to give newsletter subscribers the first chance to buy it. The newsletter will go out on Wednesday about 1400, then yarn that’s left will be added to the main shop for the update. If you’d like to get the newsletter sign up before 1300 tomorrow to make sure you’re on the list.
