One year anniversary YARN-Y Golden Ticket giveaway!

LInda Lencovic WIMBLEDON - superwash merino, work in progress

A little over a year ago I loaded my first listings to Etsy and launched the shop. I didn’t really know what to expect but after months of dreaming, planning and preparation, clicking that button and making the shop live felt like the start of an amazing new adventure.

The kindness, support and friendship that has come my way since starting this business has been humbling and and truly inspiring.

I wanted to do something special for Kettle Yarn Co.’s one year anniversary and came up with a Willy Wonka-esque ‘golden ticket’ idea as a huge thank you to everyone who has followed and supported me over the last year!

All newsletter subscribers who purchase ANYTHING from the 1st of September to October 15th will be entered into the draw for … *drum roll*…

5 skeins of WIMBLEDON Sport in Melon Balls!


100% Superwash Merino – ethically sourced
100g = 262 m/ 287 yds

That is 1125 juicy metres of bouncy sport weight to get you started in your autumn knitting – a whole jumper’s worth!

You could also stripe or do some colourwork with this as I’ve got many other hues in the same weight:

clockwise: Fenland, Blue Pictsies, *Black Country, Fog, Ice Queen, Sherbert, Melon Balls, *Red Sky
*not in shop yet – contact me by email to purchase directly

I’d meant to post this earlier and run this promotion from 1st of Sept, so will extend it into October due to my tardiness in getting this out. Bad me. ;-?

The winner will be announced October 15th!

Here are a few recent projects in the blend to get you thinking…

clockwise: Merieb’s Maile, Tinkhickman’s Wee Envelope Jumper, Actionmole’s Creamsicle, EastLondonKnit’s Effervescence

Actionmole – aka Sarah – recently left the most lovely review for the blend:

‘It’s so lovely to work with: Although the yarn has a lovely and firm twist, it can be knit up at totally different gauges and is lofty and soft at the same time.

I’ve been wearing my FO eveywhere and it holds up to all my adventures with only minimal piling under the arms. I highly recommend this yarn.’

Can’t get a better recommendation than that! Thanks again Sarah!

I am technically still on holiday until Sept 16th so will not be on email until then, but the shop is still open and I will get your new yarn-babies out to you as soon as I am back in action!

Good luck all, and thank you for making this last year such a joy.
