Northern Soles

Posted 28.11.09

Northern Soles is a collaborative yarn club, which will treat you to a beautiful new yarn every month in colourways inspired by the sights of the North-West.

The details

Posted 28.11.09

Each month, a different member of the Manchester Yarn Collective will dye a small batch of yarn, inspired by a photo taken in our part of the world. Each member of the Northern Soles yarn club will receive one skein of this yarn, accompanied by a print of the photo which inspired it. These colourways will be exclusive to the club for a minimum 12 months.

Sign-ups will open on 1st December and close either on 31st January or when we reach 20 members. Yarn will be shipped on or by the second Monday of each month, starting in February 2009, running for 6 months. Packages will be sent 1st class within the UK and Airmail internationally.

The yarn itself will be at least 100g of sock weight/fingering yarn, and each of the dyers will be striving to find the best quality base they can for this club. Expect special and luxury ingredients like bamboo, silk, angora or cashmere.

We have a dedicated Ravelry group and encourage anyone with any questions to come along and ask us. Once the club is up and running, memebers will be able to share photos and discuss projects.

About Manchester

Posted 28.11.09

Manchester is a city in the North-West of England, which grew up largely during the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century. At that time, the city made its money on spinning and weaving cotton. Now, those cotton mills have mostly been converted to trendy flats, but we are keeping the city's textile tradition alive!
