New Yarn - Twirl
Saprotex, our local supplier, have sourced stunning new yarns at incredible prices. These include Whoosh, Soda, Annello, Allure and Fauxy.
Twirl yarn in store now - all colours. New tpes of Twirl due mid-July.
Sirdar produces an incredible variety of yarns with a wide range of stunning colours. They also have patterns to fit every size and to suit most tastes. Unfortunately we cannot stock all of them but we do have quite a wide selection. So, if you are looking for something special just pop in to see the latest yarns and patterns.
Many customers are asking us for natural yarns. Some of the new yarns and many of our existing ones contain wool, cotton or bamboo and we are expecting a new pure wool yarn from our local supplier. We also have hand dyed pure cotton, 100% bamboo and a cotton and bamboo mixture all in beautiful colours.
Every year on Madiba's birthday, 18 July, South Africans from all walks of life are requested to donate 67 minutes of their time to a community in need. This year has seen so many wonderful projects and the exciting thing is that each year more and more of these projects become permanent features.
This year we put out a request for crocheted and knitted squares to put together for blankets to give to some of the wonderful people who take orphans and abandoned children into their homes. On Mandela day we had a group of ladies who joined us in the shop to sew some of the squares together. We are aiming for 10 blankets for the Appletree Foundation ladies.
Thank you to the many ladies who have made squares or sewn them together. Here are just a few.
