Let's say you can't make it to Edinburgh Yarn Festival (this year!). People will be posting pictures of their EYF stash, or tweeting about their classes...news will be coming in of Felicity Ford's Ca-BAA-ret! ...and then people will be getting up on Sunday to do it all again... Oh no!
You need a treat! Why should you miss out on WOOL?! And this is where The Golden Skein can help you feel better. Read on...
"The Golden Skein is delighted to be partnering with Edinburgh Yarn Festival to bring to you a special edition, one-off club, celebrating Edinburgh and the second Yarn Festival to be held there.
Following the format of the flagship ‘Power of 3’ yarn club currently offered by The Golden Skein, the club will comprise of three 100g skeins of fingering weight yarn. Each yarn will be hand dyed by a different dyer, using the same photograph as inspiration to create the colour way. The dyers will each use a yarn base from their own range and all three bases will be different blends of fibre, allowing lots of opportunity to experiment in choosing suitable projects.
This limited edition, one-off club has a strong geographical theme, and as usual, details of the dyers are kept top secret to preserve the surprise for subscribers.
The parcels will be dispatched no later than 12th March 2015, to arrive just as Edinburgh Yarn Festival opens on 14th March 2015. If you’re not able to attend the festival, but would like to sample some Scottish ambience in the form of a luxury yarn trio, delivered in beautiful packaging for your enjoyment, this club is the way to do it.
The club will go on sale on Sunday 15th February 2015 at 1900 GMT at www.thegoldenskein.com The inspiration photograph will be revealed onSaturday 14th February."
Well, we ARE going to EYF and we still would quite like to get in on this! Roll on Sunday evening!
