New Website, new stuff!

It feels like it’s been an eternity since I’ve been able to dabble in the dyes and offer something newer and more interesting. For the last year or so, I’ve been working on the website in between work (y’know that thing one does from Monday to Friday between the hours of 8 and 5-something) and other major life events. However, here we are! The website has had a massive face lift. I wanted a clean and more streamlined style that allowed me to keep the site up-to-date and add new products without spending an astronomical amount of time doing it. In doing so, I believe that Frankenskein Yarn Company is heading in a better direction.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, I am offering a 10% discount on all orders when using the code gimme10 on check out. This coupon code will expire on the 18th of August and the only caveats here are that the coupon is limited to 1 use per customer and the minimum spend is £25.

So, what’s new?

Yarns:

I have some new hand-dyed fibres and yarns with a lot more on the way. I have added a range of gradient sock blanks that allow you to knit straight from the knitted fabric, lots of mini-skein sets for helix knitting or any kind of colour work, or anything that requires just a little bit of yarn. Hell, these are good for knitting shawls, scarves, mittens or socks where you want to chop and change the colour order.

Fibre:

Some spinning fibre has been added to the shop (Masham, Merino/Silk Blends, Merino/Soy Blends, Merino/Bamboo Blend, etc), which can be used with spinning wheels, drop spindles or even just for felting. I have been dyeing additional fibre with the intention of drum carding a few batts (this is still a work in progress). When there is a whole world of sparkly angelina fibre for blending, what’s not to love? I love a good rainbow with sparkle.

Needles, Hooks and Accessories:

I have topped up my stocks on HiyaHiya Sharp Circular knitting needles and have added a line of Knit Pro fixed circular knitting needles as well – more will be added in the near future to expand the line. If fixed circulars aren’t your bag, we do have some sharp and stainless steel Double Pointed Needles (DPNS). Additionally, a set of crochet hooks have been stocked. These are a good all around tool that can be used for more than just crochet. It’s nice to have a hook available when correcting knitting work. It saves time and effort from having to frog back to where the original error occurred. At least that’s what I’m telling myself. They are a good, sturdy economical set of hooks.

Finally, we have the usual suspects when it comes to accessories: cable needles, stitch holders, locking stitch markers, darn it needles and needle point protectors.
