All designs can be made up in your chosen colours and price is determined by the type of yarn used. As well as working on items for the stall, bespoke orders can be completed in approximately 4 weeks from receipt of a deposit. Please contact me for further details of this service.
E-mails are regularly checked, in spite of being nearly welded to my knitting needles.
Sock Promotion at Forthcoming Craft Events.
Did you know that: Alpaca wool, which is soft and lustrous, is particularly durable. It is a remarkable fibre as it responds to temperature i.e. warm in winter and light and cool in summer. We make luxury socks and bed socks in alpaca – wonderful for the elderly, disabled or folks generally who have cold feet.
More socks are on the way for the new season. I do knit quite quickly, but have my limit so please order to ensure getting a pair.
The full range of knitwear will be available for sale including the speciality sock range. These are available in all colours, patterns and sizes and can be made to order if required. If you have never worn handknitted socks then this is your chance to experience their comfort as well as originality. They make a practical gift for the fashionably adventurous and are priced at £15.
The main range is made of 75% wool/25% nylon yarn which means that the socks will be durable as well as warm. Some of the yarn is produced in Yorkshire and, as the socks are knitted locally by Inchcape, this makes them very British.
A new range of socks is emerging made from 100% alpaca yarn which is lovely and soft, but very strong. These socks are knitted in wonderful bright, plain colours and again are priced at £15. As well as being durable enough for regular wear, they make cosy bedsocks. Pictures of these will soon be appearing on the website.
Inchcape is exhibiting crafts at Helmsley at The Feathers Hotel situated in the town centre. Parking is available in the market immediately across from the hotel. The Craft Fair is held in the function room to the rear of the building and is accessible from the front or back entrances. Helmsley is a delightful Yorkshire town with lots of interesting shops and the historic castle. We also exhibit upstairs in the Town Hall, there is a stair lift. All the stallholders exhibit and sell their own handmade crafts so it is well-worth a visit with around a dozen stalls to see. Do come along!
