Basking in the morning sun is the latest PomPom Quarterly Trunk Show. This edition focuses on natural dyes and has, we think, the most ‘want to knit’ collection yet.
Our customers have fallen for the mustard, textural sweater in the foreground – Rocquaine by Christina Danaee – that’s been the top, casting on now, project so far; followed by the wavy stripes of Vellamo by Francesca Hughes and the feathery fine, indigo wrap by Renée Callahan.
The garments will be with us until the end of August.
PPQ, as it is affectionately known, is £9.50.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US
Can you believe we’ll be celebrating soon? What a year it has been and all thanks to the extraordinary support of you lovely lot.
We will be kicking off a month of jollity by being open for a bit during the day (1pm – 5pm) as well as our Knit Night from 7pm – 9pm.
LIMITED EDITION CUSTOM DYED BIRTHDAY YARN
To celebrate the best way we know…with yarn…we have worked with the magicians at SweetGeorgia Yarns to create a unique colourway of handpainted Superwash DK that echoes the hues of The Yarn Dispensary.
This custom shade launching in September will be exclusive to us and available in a limited quantity this year alongside semi solid shades to allow you to scheme and dream to your heart’s content.
There are plans afoot as you can imagine…
