We officially opened our online shop and started this venture a year ago (6th Sept) and can’t believe all that we have achieved and the amount we have managed to raise for all our selected charities

In the last year we have managed to raise a total of £2605 which has been shared between the following charities

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity

Badger Trust

MIND - The Mental Health Charity

Celia Hammond Animal Trust

In addition which will count towards next years total we have raised a staggering £2000 for MIND from the Advent Calendars themselves

Therefore I think we can say without a doubt that the total for next years charity donations will easily beat this years numbers

As a little thank you to everyone who has made a purchase from us this year and any who buy from us over the weekend we will add your name to a random draw and 1 of you will get a little thank you giftcard to use against anything in our shop now or in the future

So what about the giveaway?

For your chance to win a 12 Days of Xmas Kit with the extra mystery skein and a large project bag please answer the following question in the comments section of this post by Midnight 9th September 2019 BST

What is your favourite colourway and what charity would you like us to consider donating to in the future (Does not need to be UK based)

Your details will only be used to contact you in the event that you are the winner who will be chosen randomly and this is open worldwide

I am new to your products so I’d love a chance to work with and of your lines they all seem interesting and lend to beauty. I’d make charity donations to either suicide21, wounded warriors or to autism awareness and research.

SAPPHYRIN is gorgeous across the different bases. For charities: Doctors Without Borders, or any food bank.

Grace Sophia

Grace Sophia said:

well, how to pick just one? crystal violet and vitis vinifera are my top two colors, and how about the national indiginous women’s resource center?


Stephanie said:

I like the bioluminescence colorway 😍 I love donating organizations that help provide access to clean drinking water like water.org


Astrid said:

Alliance for choice would be a great charity to support – they campaign for free, safe and legal abortion in Northern Ireland. My favourite colour way (this evening – it changes!) is a close call between Methane and Crystal Violet :-)

Cheetah conservation fund they have a higher risk of extinction between the big cats

Nicole Acuna

Nicole Acuna said:

Do androids dream of purple sheep? is my favorite colorway! It’s perfect In every way :)

I would like if you could donate to the American Heart Association, my mother has spent the past 23 years suffering because of lack of research and technology in cardiac surgery and because of 2 failed valve replacements and a stroke, she is now dying from advance congestive heart failure.


Joy said:

I love your Vernal Equinox colourway. I love the way it glows- it’s so beautiful ❤

I’d love the Sophie Lancaster foundation (S.O.P.H.I.E) to be considered as a possible charity. Sophie was sadly murdered in 2007 just for looking different. Her mum is doing a fantastic job in raising awareness in helping stop hate crime.

Cat Treadwell

Cat Treadwell said:

I love your red. Vitis Vinifera – and not least because it sounds like a Harry Potter spell 😊

I’d suggest MIND again (as their work is sorely needed), but trust you to find a smaller alternative if a lesser-known but equally hard-working cause is found. Big love, guys x

Rachel Picksley

Rachel Picksley said:

Anna Ridley

Anna Ridley said:

My favourite colourway is Little Fluffy Clouds – I so love a beautiful, moody grey :)

The charity I would suggest is Shelter – so many people face sleeping rough, and with the cold weather approaching, it’s awful to contemplate.

Nadine R Bongio

Shelley Bedford

Shelley Bedford said:

Unicorn Fart is awesome!

Id say a great charity is the sick children’s Trust who help with Housing for family while there children are in hospital, they help up and down the country with a free place to sleep and direct phone lines to the hospital so your never more than 5 minutes away.
They let me spend a month with my 16 year old sister just before she passed away. Something I would have never been able to afford to do in a hotel.


Kathryn said:

My fav colorway is Rayleigh Scattering as evidenced in my latest purchase 😊. I would like to see donations made to either foundations for battered women and children or animal rescue. Thank you!

Stephanie Martinez

Stephanie Martinez said:

Such a difficult question as all your colourways are amazing but bioluminessence is just beaut.

I suggest Alzheimer’s society as a charity to support. They do great work.
