If you don't fancy risking ordering yarn and fibre as Christmas presents, gift cards are also available in the shop. These are digital cards which are emailed to you and you can email or print off to give to your recipient.
THE ODYSSEY TRAIL:
The Odyssey Trail was intended to wrap up at the end of December but with being out of dyeing action over the summer months, that schedule is out of whack. There are three Odyssey updates left and those will be at the end of January, February and March 2016, leaving nine months to a new classical theme that ties in nicely with The Odyssey. (Hint, it isn't The Iliad!)
The real Lord Kitchener had his face plastered on wartime posters exclaiming "Your Country Needs You." Well, your stash needs this yarn.
We have been meticulously planning, prepping and designing for this collection behind the scenes for a few months now and we’re VERY excited to be launching our red carpet, opening night event for all our Countess Ablaze fans. So here we go!
Countess Ablaze presents…
Cabin fever, war, lust, travelling through space, deceit, and murder; it’s our brand-spanking new custom blends collection!
