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.
WELCOME TO OUR YARN ISLAND REBEL BATCH. Pack your suitcase and get ready for a long hot summer with Yarn Island.
A bunch of gorgeous yarn dyers will be taking over the hottest studio in the world for four weeks of sun, sea and citric acid, in their quest for the ultimate summer yarn romance! But it's not just their fellow Islanders they'll have to impress.
To be in with a shot at yarn love and the glorious prizes, our Islanders will have to capture your hearts too as YOU have the final say over who gets dumped, and who goes home with the yarn.
Prepare for pie-throwing, yarn-hopping, and breaches of knit code. After all, all is fair in love and Yarn Island.
Our dyers will be coupled up with yarns in which the Yarn Island studio will be filled with plots and intrigue. These colourways are non-repeatable so grab them whilst you can!
Superchunky yarn is all the rage. Also known as Pencil Roving, this yarn can be used for knitting and crochet but you can also spin it.
The merino has been superwash treated to prevent felting and shrinkage. If you're wanting hand dyed superchunky yarn without the sparkly Stellina, this is the one for you.
Due to the nature of how this yarn is dyed, every skein is truly unique and can vary!

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 hand wash in cool water and leave flat to dry.
