Guest blog post – Herdy yarns and knitting workshops at Great British Yarns

Sharon at Great British Yarns talks us through the yarns and workshops she’s getting excited about this month.

It’s so exciting when the new season yarns arrive at Great British Yarns. For autumn these arrive in August, and this year included a selection of Herdy wools. This is from the lovely Herdy company and comes in seven shades: five brights and two neutrals.

It retails at £7.95 per 100g ball and knits to a chunky weight, so is suitable for projects such as accessories and outerwear. The wool is 100% British and is processed here too. Fabulous stuff!

Great British Yarns colourworkWe’re also gearing up for a series of knitting workshops beginning in September. There is quite a variety of subjects to choose from, plus we are also running a Professional Knitting Course which runs on Thursday mornings and comprise two half hour sessions on knitting topics such as Edgings, cast ons, increases and decreases and so on. Download full workshop details here.

Each topic is a stand-alone course but together they make a fully comprehensive professional standard course. These sessions cost £25 each and if you book three or more at once you’ll receive a 5% discount!
