Sign ups for our Flower Fairies – Seasons Mini Skein Club – Bonus Box are now open!
The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that there are six all important fairies missing from our Fairies of the Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter Mini Skein Boxes. These are: The Celandine Fairy, The Cowslip Fairy, The Toadflax Fairy, The Ragwort Fairy, The Box Tree Fairy and The Rush-Grass and Cotton-Grass Fairies.
To rectify this, we will be producing a Flower Fairies Mini Skein Club Bonus Box containing six 20g mini skeins (120g) of delicately hand dyed yarn, sumptuously soft, 100% British Bluefaced Leicester 4 ply high twist sock yarn inspired by the six missing fairies.
The Bonus Box will also include a hardback copy of The Complete Book of the Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker.
The Flower Fairies Mini Skein Club Bonus Box will be available to purchase until Thursday February 29th and will be posted out shortly afterwards once dyeing is complete.
