The limited edition fubc shawl kit has been launched to celebrate the end of Susan’s treatment for breast cancer and to help support her local charity, Cancercare, by selling copies of the ‘Knocker Jotter’, a journal containing 16 portraits of woman at various stages of their cancer journey, as part of the kit. £15 from each kit sold will be donated to Cancercare and Susan hopes to raise approximately £6000 in total.
The kit is a collaborative effort by Susan, her friend and fellow designer Tess Young, four of Susan’s favourite hand dyers, Skein Queen, Old Maiden Aunt, Knitting Goddess and Countess Ablaze and graphic artist, Julie Nelson-Rhodes who created an iconic and original skein band for the yarn.
Using Susan’s limited edition yarn, Ghyll, each dyer created an exclusive and very limited edition colourway inspired by one of the photos in the journal.
Each kit contains one 100gm skein of natural, undyed Ghyll, one 100gm skein of one of the limited edition colourways, a high quality printed pattern booklet containing both shawl patterns for you to choose from and a copy of the Knocker Jotter. The first 150 orders received will also receive a hand made project bag sewn from vintage fabric.
Simply opt for the colourway of your choosing bearing in mind there are less than 100 skeins of each colourway.
