    Heading in the right direction

    Good evening all you lovely yarny people. In my previous blog post I wrote about wanting to get more British wool in the shop as per my original dram and direction for the shop.

First off is the current dyer of the month who is Joanie Unravelled, only here for the month of June but proving very popular so we may just see her back again at a later date.
