Pom Pom Quarterly – Issue 19 Winter 2016

Designs around the theme of reflection lead us into some meditative winter knitting to give or to keep. Eleven patterns, insightful articles, two cocktail recipes. Cheers!

Hedgehog Fibres

31 shades of Skinny Singles and all 30 shades of Sock Minis were added to stock; the Skinny Singles are selling so rapidly that a few shades are sold out already.

It’s been worth the wait as the colours are outstandingly good, the handle of the yarn is glorious and it’s great watching your inventive colour combining of Skinny Singles with shots of contrast in the form of a Sock Mini (or two. Or three. Or ………)

All we need now is a huge delivery of extra hours in the day and more knitting time please!


Happy Birthday to us

Thursday 1st September 2016

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.

The Yarn Dispensary Birthday Blend No.1
on a 234m per skein 100% superwash merino dk base; it echoes the colours of the shop from the rich blue pigeonholes, the bone white walls, the warm oak beams to the dusky grey of our frontage and the burnished gold of the pestle and mortar above the doorway.

One hundred skeins only
£24 a skein

 It's been @fyberspates showcase day here as far as customers are concerned - lots of finished objects coming in to let us see what skeins of yarn became.

Now do you see why we adore our customers...they are just brilliant anyway AND they know how to party #theyarndispensary #faversham #knitnight #lys #lovelypeople

Looks like a hell of a party! #theyarndispensary #faversham #glitteramnesty  The time betwixt Christmas and Hogmanay has given us some down time so we ran away to the sea. Bathed in the lemon winter light and big skies of Turner's Margate. Glorious day. #theyarndispensary #faversham #awayday #winterlight #seaair #makingmomentsmatter  Shortest day = more of an evening to knit? Yes? We've been playing with @knightkraft British Blue to make colour packs for striped scarves #theyarndispensary #faversham #lys #erikaknight #britishblue #sheepygoodness #lastminutegifts #allthelovelycolours
 Busy, busy day in the shop and with the always lovely addition of customers coming back to do show and tell. As huge fans of all things @fyberspates it was especially good to see this Vivacious DK poncho stop by to show off its impeccable stitch definition #theyarndispensary #faversham #lys #knittersofinstagram #fyberspates #vivaciousdk #tweedimps  Wondering if anyone will brace foul roads for Knit Night or if we'll be home alone with the biscuits and all this glorious yarn? #theyarndispensary #faversham #knitnight #knittersofinstagram #tunnocks #lys  Back to work eve and Farringdon is having a warm-up snooze before a full night's sleep in preparation for a day of doing his best furry croissant impression on our bed ALL DAY TOMORROW #theyarndispensary #faversham #lifestyleofarescuecat #toughgig  Proud to have our welcome to all #inclusivelys window cling from Team @ysolda greeting customers.
