The gorgeous new Aran weight, RelaX, from Rial Filati has just arrived from Italy. The colours are beautiful and I will add more over time. I absolutely loved the sample they sent me which I knit up immediately into the Antler Hat.
It is 70% wool and 30% acrylic. It feels incredibly soft and knits up beautifully. You get 166m from your 100g ball. We have 14 colours in stock and will be adding more soon.

These beautiful bowls were hand made here in Dublin, by Carol Burke, each one different and unique. They are made from impressed earthenware clay using stamps, textiles and markings. They are fired with contemporary glazes, some crackled, and finished with a lustrous bronze effect. As well as being decorative, all the glazes are non-toxic. These bowls are made with great care so as not to snag your yarn
