Pom Pom Quarterly Trunk Show

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.

This beauty is Solaris; although designed for four ply, we have used Phoenix DK, a mercerised Egyptian cotton from Intercontinental Yarns to create a huge summer wrap for those end of a beach day/ evening barbecue moments. #mairlynd #solaris #shawl #phoenixdk #egyptiancotton #knittersofinstagram #theyarndispensary #faversham  Crochet class with @nikipirowicz, I really enjoyed it! I hope to carry on the crocheting. #workexperience #workofyarn #unleashthestudent #theyarndispensary #faversham  I'm very pleased how the window has turned out, I enjoyed putting the pieces together in the window the most as I was able to see my creation come to life! However the most difficult thing was weaving the yarn through the metal box but I am so glad that it has all come together and it looks amazing! #knitnight #workofyarn #faversham #theyarndispensary #faversham #unleashthestudent #workexperience  Love the brand new stock from @baarameweknits, I have already seen a few bright and colourful yarns that are amazing, they caught my eye as soon as I opened the box.
