Elen Sock and nylon

I was asked a few times at Wonderwool why I’d discontinued the Rhodri bases (DK and 4-ply) and the Taliesin Sock, which had the nylon in for sock knitting. The problems highlighted in this article are why I changed to the high-twist 100% BFL Elen Sock. I know a small dyer like me changing over […]

The Next Stage

Well, the time to get a dedicated workshop has come a bit sooner than I anticipated. The kitchen stove and outside laundry room just aren’t cutting it anymore. Triskelion has grown so quickly over the last six months – I’m spending most of the day going in and out of the house, carrying pots of […]

Triskelion ‘Winternights’ Collection

After setting out my first unofficial stall in the Triskelion ‘Croeso‘ collection, ideas were coming thick and fast for the next.
