From 1st April 2019, 5% of our sales at www.countessablaze.com and in-store will be used as microloans on Kiva. Kiva is a worldwide project specialising in microfinancing small businesses and individuals who are locked out of accessing business aid from mainstream banks and organisations.
Microfinancing gives people an opportunity to begin businesses, or grow them and a number are textiles based. Textiles based loans will be our major interest but we'll also lend to others.
BONE APPLE TEA // REBEL BATCH - non-repeatable colourways dedicated to malapropisms; when an incorrect but similar sounding word is used to hilarious effect.
The Bluefaced Baron DK is a gorgeously soft and lustrous yarn with the added bonus of being machine washable for easy care of your handcrafted item.
Bluefaced Leicester is strong and sturdy and whilst most people find it to be next-to-skin soft, it's not quite as soft as merino but it does soften, bloom and reveal great drape once it has been washed and blocked.

Notes about hand dyed yarn
Yarns are unique and there will be small differences between skeins, even if dyed in the same batch.
Machine washable at 30 degrees but ideally wash in cool water and lie flat to dry.
