Springwatch in Narberth

Felted Bobble Necklace
Hedgehogs in the garden, woodpeckers drumming, warm sunshine in March, time going forward -  yes, we feel certain Spring is with us.

 Our knitters, felter and natural plant dyer have been busy over the Winter months, so that now we can add a wonderful new Spring collection to Damson & Slate's shop and website. The felted bobble necklaces, shown here in blues and pink, are just so popular with customers!

In addition to our familiar style of knitted hats, there are  new designs to adore, not only in the neutral colours we know you love, but also in a variety of natural plant dye colours.  Just look at that madder red, mohair hat - vibrant, warm, stunning.  Our model is lovely too.

Photo shoot down on the farm

It has been a busy week in the shop.  We enjoyed the company of a work experience student from the local school.   Paperwork was sorted, shop was tidied and visits to suppliers were made.  Thanks for the chocolate biscuits and hope it was fun for you too Gemma. 

A national magazine visited Damson and Slate to take photos of the set up here in Narberth, for an article planned to be published next January.  We turned up with our knitting pins, looms and hand dyed yarns and sat around, laughing and chatting.  What a lovely job we have.  Thanks to the boss for the scrumptious lunch.
