New Yarn

In celebration of the centenary of women in the UK (aged 30 and over) gaining the right to vote, for each month in 2018 we will release a hand-dyed yarn named for one of the suffragettes.

This month’s yarn is named after Annie Kenney, who along with Christabel Pankhurst was the first suffragette to be imprisoned, for 7 days, after heckling Sir Edward Grey at a Liberal rally in Manchester on the issue of votes for women.

Our Solemate Hand Dyed Sock Yarn is spun and dyed in the UK. £9.99 for 100g, each sock yarn order includes a printed copy of our Violet Green Sock Knitting Pattern with a full range of sizes.
