Inspiration:

The Brambly Hedge books were a firm favourite with my daughters growing up. At the start of each season, we would get out the relevant seasonal book and read it together. We would savour the seasonal story and spend ages pouring over the beautiful watercolour illustrations, paying attention to the tiniest of details.

Summer Story is the tale of Miss Poppy Eyebright, a beautiful mouse who looks after the Dairy Stump and her engagement with Mr Dusty Dogwood. Poppy spends hours sitting under the tall kingcups preparing her trousseau and embroidering her wedding dress. The folk of Brambly Hedge all gather together on Midsummer's Day to witness the marriage of the happy couple which takes place out on the river.

The tales of Brambly Hedge hold many happy memories of seasons past, time spent cuddled up together and enjoying the adventures of the wee hedgerow folk. Miss Poppy Eyebright is a lovely blend of golds and greens speckled with brown inspired by the picture of the small mouse working on her wedding dress under the kingcups.

I'm sure that this yarn would make a delightful pair (or two) of light lacy ankle socks, perfect for summer.

My yarn bases come from a local supplier that prides itself in sourcing its fibre from reliable suppliers with best practices with regard to animal husbandry and the environment, something that is very important to me

. I use acid dyes unless otherwise stated.

Disclaimer: I wash all my yarn with wool wash which may aggravate skins that are sensitive to such products.

Darker colours may run, bleed or transfer and although I take every precaution to ensure colour fastness I cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by colour transfer or bleeding in a wash. Please ensure to follow the recommended washing instructions below. *While I have tried to accurately represent the colours on the skeins, all skeins are unique and the colours may vary slightly according to your monitor. The colour intensity may vary slightly as each skein is unique because it is hand-dyed.

Washing Instructions: Cool Hand Wash recommended. Wash separately
