So, here I am, two months along, with a new company, new studio space but essentially doing the same thing that I'd been doing for the last year and the half - dyeing Sokkusu yarns. I won't lie, it's been a steep learning curve with regards to setting up a business, designing a website, getting workspace, getting a logo designed..... this is list goes on. In fact, there still much to do, but I'm getting there.
The website is ready(ish) - it's here. I'll be offering most of the old Sokkusu colourways on the website as well as creating lots of new ones. My first collection is based on a deep yearning for Spring and Summer as we've been stuck in this never-ending cold spell since late September. The first snowflakes were fun and interesting but now, months later, I've had enough of the grey and the cold. I need some warmth and some splash of colour. What do you think of the collection?
From left to right:
Top row - Hydrangea, Spring Storm, Hyacinth, Cornflower, LFB, Green Apple
Bottom row - Fuchsia, Dusky Rose, Madder, Tulip, Goldenrod, Daffodil
Over the coming months I intend to produce a range of colours as well as increasing the yarn range. As well as stocking popular colours, I will be introducing new colourways every few months. I am looking forward to producing a range inspired by the upcoming Hunger Games movie. Please feel free to post any suggestions or ideas you have on the blog with the best suggestions receiving a little surprise from me.
As a final incentive, I am offering a 15% discount for all orders made through the website until 21 April.
Thank you for joining me on this journey!
