This week's Shop Update will be a very special one, featuring our 'Joy' colourway on our Merino Nylon Sock base.
We were thrilled to collaborate with Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade on the colourway for her final sock pattern of The Handmade Sock Society, Season 4.
Our Joy colourway is a delicate and gentle colourway featuring shades of lavender, taupe, brown and purple.
The fourth season of the Handmade Sock Society celebrates life lived close to the landscape and our Joy colourway aims to reflect the subtle tones found in the gum trees and lavender plantings around our Tasmanian rural property and home.
The Joyful Shop Update will be held at 9am AEST (Hobart time) on Saturday, 12 June.
With the sixth and final Handmade Sock Society Season 4 sock pattern being released on July 8th, our Shop Update will give you plenty of time to secure the original yarn used in the pattern, ahead of its release.
It's not to late to still join The Handmade Sock Society, Season 4. Full details can be found on the Curious Handmade website here.

We are so proud of the knitting community for the overwhelming response and support to our little fundraiser.
As you know we teamed up with Sam and Olga from Thread & Maple and Designer Tracie Miller of the Grocery Girls, to run a fundraiser both in Australia and Canada for breast cancer research and awareness.
The proceeds from both our fundraisers came to well over $10,000.

We are introducing Merino Possum Fingering to Louie & Lola this weekend. Why, you may ask? Well...that comes back to a few things - a desire to introduce more locally produced yarn bases, in particular, non superwash woollen spun yarns suitable for colourwork projects and also a love for possum!
