indigo linen lace – our favourite- but there will be more to see by the weekend.
Its on the way – for all frustrated artisan yarnies who want to buy online we have finally decided to put a toe in the water of e-commerce. Even as I type there are people working away behind the scenes, putting it all together, Scary, scary!
Our policy all along is that you need to be able to see, feel and sniff our yarns, but sometimes you need to re-order after a show or spend some special birthday money without fighting your way into Hereford, so here’s a chance to do that. In the meantime here is some real wool on legs that I communed with on the weekend. The ones with the black faces are the Unitarian Sheep, Llanwenogs and the white faces ones which make me think of Agnus Dei are Lleyns and they all live in the Aeron Valley in Ceredigion where I once lived.
During June & July the the small gallery will be open from Wednesday to Saturday 10 – 5 pm. (Tuesdays are now spinning & dyeing days)
The gallery will have skeletal or no staff at all on UK Ravelry Day (6th June); during Woolfest in June and Fibrefest in August. Please ring for details if you are planning a trip to Hereford.
We are also at Hereford Farmers Market on the third Thursday of the month in June & July and First Saturday and Third Thursday in August and September. the time is 9 – 2 pm and the place is right in the centre of Hereford – High Town (outside Marks & Spencers) surrounded by fruit & flowers, chutney and local meats – not to mention a very curious owl!
If you are coming to Hereford with friends then we are happy to open out of hours to let you browse and buy.
