Orders are shipping daily. Because of the global pandemic, delivery times are likely to be longer than usual and may be somewhat unpredictable. Although most items arrive remarkably promptly considering the circumstances, please do not contact me to ask where your order is until two weeks have elapsed (UK) or one month (international). Prior to that, please use the tracking information. I have made signed-for delivery compulsory on a temporary basis until postal services are managing better or folk become used to slightly longer waits. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

These odd little beauties are so called because the boy butterflies make a cracking noise as part of their territorial display. And if that doesn’t sound weird enough for you, know that this species actually named the Red Cracker despite being, erm, blue....

This is a luxurious yarn spun from 75% superwash extrafine merino and 25% mulberry silk. It has a beautiful silky sheen and marvellous drape. Around 225 metres per 100g skein. 4-5mm needles. Hand wash only.

This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time and costs £2. You can purchase this service here:
