Cathedral is my very first colourway for 2020, and I am proud to announce that it is included in my very first sweater pack, along with Trenear and Old Trenear.
Inspiration for this colourway;
Trenear = (Cornish: Trenyer)
The museum and mine now known as Poldark Mine started life in summer 1966 when Peter Young, a Royal Marine, purchased the local smithy, Wendron Forge, in an auction in the hamlet of Trenear, while on weekend leave.

Shown on 4 ply Sock Yarn (75% Super Wash Merino/25% Nylon) 425 mtrs approx. per skein.
Sock is just a term used for the yarn base, and it is in fact beautifully soft, and is in no way limited to making socks with! :)
One of each size set is available to ship immediately on the bases shown.
Available on the yarn base of your choice (if your choice of yarn base isn't shown, please message me to place your order.)
All of my yarns are dyed with professional grade light and colour fast acid dyes in a smoke and pet free environment.
As the yarn is hand dyed, no two skeins will be exactly the same, so it is best to work each row with alternate skeins when working on a larger project.
Please note that colours may look different on various monitors, tablets and mobile phone screens

Absolutely stunning colours and most definitely made with love! Highly recommended
I'm Karen, and I'm the creative mind behind Kernow Designs.
I am 47 years old. I took a long career break to raise my young family.⠀Two are now grown & living away from home & one is in college.⠀Another two are in high school.⠀
It doesn't seem possible. (It passed while I blinked.)⠀I was miserable being back in work. Long hours, 7 days a week, late shift changes with barely any notice. No appreciation of my hard work at all. Ever.⠀So I took the plunge and quit my job. I decided that I only have one life so I was going to live it in a way that made me smile instead of cry.
It is a big risk but it is also one I simply had to take.⠀I started my own handdyed yarn and handwoven accessories business.⠀I turned my passions into something which I can share with you all. :)
Will it fail? Will it succeed? Honestly I don't know. But the important thing for me is that I'm giving it a go.⠀(I am determined that I will not reach 50 years old and sit there thinking "what if" I survived cancer only to realise later that I was actually just surviving my day to day life.)
I know that I'm lucky. I have this amazing chance and I'm grasping it for all that I am worth.
I'm also a part of a wonderful, amazing fibre community and for that I am truly thankful.⠀
Wishing you all happiness, may your dreams always make you smile. xx
