EVENT! A trunk show with Northern Yarn : Saturday 1st October 2016

September 19, 2016 2 min read

We're very excited at Countess Ablaze to have invited Kate from Northern Yarn to the studio for a Northern-style woolly shindig on Saturday 1st October 2016. The Countess has asked some quick questions:
.
1. Describe your business in five words.
 British, local, honest, natural, Northern.
.
2. Where do you sell your yarn?
At the moment I sell on a market stall in Lancaster twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturday and also go to Garstang market on a Thursday. You will also find me at Kendal Wool Gathering on October 29th -30th. My online shop can be found at www.northernyarn.co.uk
.
.
3. How old is your business?
Northern Yarn was launched in May 2016.
.
.
4. How would you describe your style/niche?
I sell British wool that is produced as locally as possible, I'm also having some wool processed from a very local farm up the road. I'm very excited about that!! I want to celebrate all things Northern. 
.
.
5. What's your favourite product that you sell?
I love the Lancashire lines. The Lancashire Farm Wool gave me the inspiration to go ahead with Northern Yarn, wool grown just up the road from places I love to visit and produced by one brilliant Kate Schofield. (Silverdale and Arnside) But I love love love the gorgeous Teeswater, hand dyed in Clitheroe for its sheer luxuriousness!! It's soft and each skein is so unique in its colour, a favourite amongst customers knitters and non-knitters alike, no one can resist a squidge!
.
.
6. What are you bringing to the trunk show?
My range of the very popular West Yorkshire Spinners (DK, Aran, 4 ply, pre-made socks, BFL) Lancashire Farm Wool, Teeswater Wool, Dodgson Wood (Cumbrian), Masham pure breed, Lancashire produced cotton and some locally made project bags and buttons.  Food wise: mini butter pies, cheese and gin. (All Lancashire) 
.
.
7. What plans do you have for the future?
World domination and having my own yarn produced. Perhaps not in that order!
