The Queen Sessions - colours inspired by our love of Queen! Seaside rendezvous isn’t one of the songs most people would immediately name but it encapsulates the feeling of summer seaside tête-à-tête & is a brilliant listen. Our colour choice probably isn’t the most obvious either but when we hear this song we immediately think of the beach huts, gloriously bright and cheerful and as emblematic of the line ‘It's such a jollification as a matter of fact’ as we think you can get. A gentle tonal lilac we think this is just a lovely, cheerful sunny beach day colour. Perfect to wear to a seaside rendezvous.

The Decadence base is our favourite base for light jumpers, shawls and garments that benefit from absolutely incredible softness, drape and lustre- It’s called Decadence for a reason. When the light hits it the colours look jewel like and catch the eye, the drape makes this conform beautifully and the softness, well, we talk a lot about ‘touchability’ here but this is a pleasure to work with, to wear and it’s almost impossible not to stroke. This is luxury that will last.

While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
