“The “accessories “ box was so popular in in 2018 and I’ve been asked to continue it In 2019 .Each month will include a new exclusive pattern designed by myself , yarn and gifts . Throughout the year it will give you the chance to try different yarn bases , thicknesses and techniques . There will be socks, shawls , cowls , gloves , mittens etc , ideal for Christmas gifts or just for yourself. The pictures are of previous boxes .
This months box is "May Day" The first day of the month of May is known as May Day. It is the time of year when warmer weather begins and flowers and trees start to blossom. It is said to be a time of love and romance. It is when people celebrate the coming of summer with lots of different customs that are expressions of joy and hope after a long winter. copyright of protectbritain.com
Traditional English May Day celebrations include Morris dancing, crowning a May Queen and dancinig around the maypole.
The mailing time is between 4-5 weeks , to allow gifts to be made by other crafters
The yarn is hand hand painted using environmentally friendly dyes , And is sourced from either the UK or South America.
The dye Process: We use non-toxic acid dyes .The dye process has very little waste , and all of the dyes are exhausted into yarns before any water is poured away. I use food grade citric acid as setting agent, and rinse with water, to maintain a low impact on the environment. i take care to provide colourfastness, but some bleeding may occur in the first wash.
All yarns are stored in a smoke and pet free environment .
