New Bases & Products

Helen Giddens

So alongside my Halloween colourways I am also introducing two new things. Firstly, a new base. I am introducing a Blue Faced Leicester base. It is 75% superwash Blue Face Leicester (SW BFL), 25% Nylon. This is a British yarn that is very soft and sturdy. Whilst it’s not as soft as a merino yarn it is still lovely and soft and is also very squishy. This yarn would be fantastic for everything!

Zombie Apocalyse is dyed on a light grey base with sickly green, light brown and blood red dye drizzled over it and then heavy red and black speckles added on top.
