This week’s shop update is all about Britsock. Britsock is one of our custom spun yarns and it’s made for us by John Arbon.

First up is a restock of the Superhero Genes colourways. These colourways raise money for Genetic Disorders UK.

Five skeins of hand dyed britsock yarn - Superhero Genes from light to dark

Superhero Genes

There’s a whole rainbow of colours which I’d happily describe as moody.

First up is Ultimate Blackened Rainbow – I’ve had an especially soft spot for this colourway since someone at a show told me that she loved it but wouldn’t buy it because “the gays are misappropriating the rainbows” (and yes, that’s going to be a colourway soon)

For those who like a little less colour we have Black and White.

We’ve restocked the black Britsock too, and it works beautifully with moody colours.

The shop update goes live at 1900 on Thursday 20th February, so if you are browsing before then you won’t see the yarns listed above.
