Shop Update - Hand Dyed Yarn

Over the past weekend, while I was working, Scott put in a big effort into updating the shop. I am very happy to announce that the full range of hand dyed yarn is now available from The Quizzical Owl shop.

I currently have five different sock yarn bases available and have named each one after long-lost civilisations, which were inspired by my museum studies and day job as a museum nerd.

The yarns available from the shop are:

Benin - Sock Weight Yarn, 100% Blue Faced Leicester, 400 Metres/100g

Herculaneum - Sock Weight Yarn, 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon, 400 Metres/100g

Mesopotamia - Sock Weight Yarn, 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Silk, 400 Metres/100g

Pergamon - Sock Weight Yarn, 100% Organic Merino, 400 Metres/100g

Nineveh - Sock Weight Yarn, 75% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon, 5% Stellina Sparkle, 400 Metres/100g

Published today is the Weekend Edition of map magazine and I am very excited to be featured in their in the Gentlewoman section.

The dye pots have also been fired up again as at the end of May and early June we will be attending two exciting events. The first is on May 27, and is the Queensland Spinners, Weavers and Fibre Artists' Open Day. The second is a special BrisStyle Craft Caravan event on June 1st in King George Square, Brisbane.

I'll have some Double Knit (8 ply) yarn available at these events too. It's a gorgeous mix of Superwash Merino, Cashmere and Nylon. Yum!
