Hi everyone! Many of you know that I have been busy test knitting for LB Handknits new book, Facing North–it’s a collection of patterns for bulky weight yarn: 4 sweaters and 4 accessories. I love my Fisherman’s Muse sweater that I was showing off on the podcast!
Well . . . the book is a collaboration with Apple Oak Fiber Works, a husband and wife duo in Ireland producing beautiful yarn with natural dyes. Jennifer and Tristan are big supporters of many cottage industries local to them in Ireland and their yarn is just beautiful! And all of their yarns are dyed using plant-based dyes. The bulky weight yarn for Facing North is from their Stockholm line.
After watching the latest podcast, Jennifer got in touch and I am happy to say that if you are interested in pre-ordering yarn for any of the projects in Facing North, you can do so at a discount! Use the code FACINGNORTH10 for 10% off of your order! They ship word-wide and estimated shipping for North America is only 3-5 days! And they have special postage rates for international shipping–all great news!
So if you fancy a bulky sweater for the coming fall and winter, this might be your chance to get in on a cool new collection and a great soulful-stash yarn straight from Ireland!
See you in a couple of weeks for another episode–likely from the prison bus 😉 ~Melissa
