New arrivals for Autumn
As the evenings are quickly getting darker and the leaves are starting to fall from the trees, it definitely feels like it is time to get those needles and hooks out of the closet and start thinking about Christmas presents. Winter yarns have started to arrive in the shop, including a re-stock of Malabrigo Rastita (Sport weight / 285m, Single Ply, Merino ) – the shop now stocks 13 colours.
It is very hard to resist Malabrigo’s very soft and beautiful hand dyed yarns, they are perfect for quick and last minute gifts. This is a free scarf pattern by Lisa Bruce on Ravelry, which is extremely easy to remember and very effective for highly variegated yarns. One skein of the Rastita is enough for a scarf measuring about 140cm.
Madelinetosh has arrived!
Just arrived in the shop are 22 colours of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light – Fingering Weight – 100g – 420yards / 384 metres. Perfect for lacy shawls, accessories and light-weight sweaters and cardigans.
Madelinetosh is an extremely popular artisanal hand dyed yarn brand from America and used by many designers on Ravelry.
Their range of natural fibre yarns are sourced from Peru and South Africa, which are skillfully hand-dyed in Texas (USA) in very small batches using low impact dyes and no dye lots are available.
Their colour palette is breathtaking and extensive and you will fall in love with their colours. Colours currently in stock are available for sale on the online shop.

I WILL BE CLOSED on FRIDAY 27th JUNE and re-opening again on TUESDAY 8th JULY for a week’s holiday down in Cornwall with the family. Online store is open for browsing, but orders will only be sent out on my return.

LEARN TO KNIT using Modern Techniques
Be Inspired Fibres has now been opened for a month, and I want to thank all the lovely well wishers from both local Marchmont residents and visitors from afar, who have managed to find me and supported the shop. It is very quiet at the moment around Marchmont, since most families and students have gone away for the summer, but I have kept myself busy researching and planning classes and workshops for the autumn.
It is great to see that the yarn shop has re-awakened some people’s intentions to start knitting again. The shop aims to inspire people to be creative whether they have been mesmerized by the wonderful colours of the Crazy Zauberballs or seduced by the luxurious silky cashmere.
For those new knitters who prefer to learn in an informal, interactive and more social setting, rather than from youtube videos, Be Inspired Fibres will be hosting a series of designer-led knitting classes and workshops scheduled for September and October at the shop. You will also find a list of classes on another page, which I will update on a regular bases.
We start the season with Emily Wessel’s 3 x Monday evenings course – Learning to Knit using Modern Techniques based on the soon-to-be released patterns by Tin Can Knits.
You will also get to choose whether you want to knit a beautiful hat or a cowl using some Malabrigo worsted weight yarn.
Emily Wessel will guide students through a project from start to finish, knitting in the round and seamless, using circular needles and the magic loop technique or double pointed needles. When you have mastered these essential skills, they will be extremely useful for follow-on projects such as mittens, gloves, sweaters, fairisle and socks.
Immediate feedback from a teacher will help students gain confidence quickly and will help them spot and correct mistakes early. This course is highly recommended for either complete beginners, refreshers or improvers, who need some support to get them started. This class is scheduled for Monday evenings between 6.30 and 8.30 – Sept 2nd, 9th and 16th.
As Emily will be away in October, we will try to fit in An Intro into Lace Knitting before she leaves. This course is a 2 week x 2hrs on Monday evenings, 23rd and 30th September, so if you are a confident beginner or improver, you may be interested in learning about basic lace knitting techniques, chart reading, life lines and blocking. If you book both Emily’s classes at the same time, you will get a 10% discount on the total amount.
