I'm excited to announce that we will shortly be stocking Hoooked Zpagetti Yarn!
This wonderfully versatile yarn is made from offcuts from the textile industry, is really wide, comes on a huge roll and uses a huge crochet hook.
The brand is famous for the handbag kits that they sell. You buy the yarn
and the handles and crochet yourself a handbag in a few hours! These are gorgeous but I have to admit I get most excited about the home accessories that can be made.
I really love the bowls, jars, rugs and poufs. I think they're bang on trend and also fit our eco-friendly ethos of re-using something and making it beautiful again.
I have admired these poufs for a while and I really chuffed that we will be having them in Alcove. Unless I am mistaken there are no other local stockists of this yarn ( I have certainly struggled to get it since the lovely Yarn Gathering in Stone closed) so hopefully this will prove popular.
If you don't crochet but love crochet items, we will sell the pouf and rugs ready made to purchase, but you can also buy the yarn and crochet one for yourself. It's hard to believe but they only use one basic crochet stitch and are relatively simple to hook up.
I'm going to have fun ordering the colours and hooking up some samples for display ( and purchase) in the shop! Yipee!
