Mad March Discount as Sedbergh Workshop re-opens!

It's almost spring and I'll soon be making a beeline every Wednesday for my Sedbergh workshop.  Opening hours, as last year, will be 10am to 3pm.  I'm often working in there on other days as well but if you're making a special trip to Sedbergh it's best to call ahead, or email, to make sure I'm around.  I can usually open up at short notice.  A little later in the year I hope to be open on Saturdays too.

Over the last couple of weeks I've been having a good spring clean.  Many of you will know that I operate out of three spaces - my Sedbergh workshop, a studio at home and a garden shed!  Despite this richness of space I still run out of room occasionally and my house begins to resemble a warehouse as the logistics of moving around large quantities of yarn threaten to overwhelm me.  In a month or so I'll have a delivery of new yarn that will fill the shed to the rafters and quite possibly bury my loom at the same time.  The yarn is currently at the dyers.  I have extended my colour palette for 2016 and am excited about integrating these new colours into some new designs.

Yarns coming into stock include:

  • a Bluefaced Leicester/Hebridean blend
  • two worsted singles yarns - a creamy Bluefaced Leicester from sheep raised on an organic farm in Cumbria, and a gorgeous chocolate-coloured Bluefaced Leicester/Wensleydale blend from sheep raised on a farm in the Yorkshire Dales. 
  • a Hebridean/Black Welsh Mountain blend and its 2-fold equivalent.
In addition there is a clutch of newly handwoven scarves waiting in the wings, designs for wool throws being developed, to be woven later in the year, and more of my original walking socks (the 'salted' grey ones) arriving imminently.

But before all this new stuff goes on the website and into the workshop I need to make space!  So, in celebration of a new year at Laura's Loom where the emphasis will be on design, I'm offering a

30% Spring Discount on all current stock 

The offer applies to all products (except new commissions) currently listed on my website or available in my workshop, including items already on sale.  To access the offer online enter STOCK15 as the coupon code at checkout.  Purchases through the workshop will automatically qualify for the discount.  The offer is valid throughout the month of March.

Warmest wishes from me and the sheep which support my business:
