We’re thrilled to be featured in the knitting press again, and this month we’re in the brilliant Knitting magazine not once but twice!

There’s a lovely review of our Dynamite DK in ‘Shinjuku’ by Sarah Hazell

May 2019 yarn reviews by Sarah Hazell featuring It's a Stitch Up Dynamite DK in 'Shinjuku'

It’s great to see our British Bluefaced Leicester wool getting some love because it’s often overlooked but such a perfect fibre for garment knitting. Sarah says “This yarn is fabulous to knit with delivers a lively, even textured fabric.”

‘Shinjuku’ is one of our most popular shades, so we dyed up a bumper batch just in time for the magazine’s release.

If that wasn’t enough excitement for one issue, we’re also the subject of a half page feature.

Knitting editor Christine Boggis perfectly captures our values in this feature, and I couldn’t help feeling a little emotional reading about our achievements in print.

Knitting issue 193 (May 2019) is out today, 4 April. You can order a print copy, get a digital edition or subscribe to Knitting.
