A collaboration with Rusty Ferret Yarns

LJ from Rusty Ferret Yarns and I have pulled together a pair of yarns with the aim of raising some money for a couple of awesome charities.

LJ will be raising money for Depher , a charity which provides vulnerable people with access to affordable heating and plumbing services.That's help with things like no heating or hot water.

I'll be rising money for The Trussell Trust, a charity behind many of the UK food banks. This comes from their website " For the first time ever, food banks are giving out more food than is being donated. This is an emergency."

We started chatting about this collaboration during the last days of Liz Truss as PM. LJs colourway is inspired by the live feed wondering if Liz would be outlasted by a lettuce. The lettuce won.

Lettuce Eat Cake is  blend of greens combined with a section of neon sprinkles for a bit of the Rusty Ferret signature style.

The yarn is a high twist 80% superwash merino, 20% nylon and there are 400m to each 100g skein.

Tories are Toxic is a tory blue that's been resist overdyed with black, so only small areas of blue remain. It's a take on how grim thinks are after 12 years of a Tory government. It keeps getting worse. The sample shows how the yarn knits up as a a sock, and it would look similar in fingerless mitts.

The yarn is our 75% superwash British BFL, 25% nylon blend with 400m to each 100g skein

We'll each be donating £5 from each skein we sell - this allows us to cover material costs, pay taxes (hey, we've not huge energy companies, we have tax bills), and keep doing things like that.


Of course.
