Each month of 2022 we will offer a mini skein collection inspired by the popular birth stones.

Turquoise has perhaps the most fascinating history in terms of its use in jewellery and as a talisman. Uncovered in ancient Egyptian tombs dating from 3000 BC, through to Persian use to ward of the influence of the Evil Eye, to the 17th Century belief that Turquoise calmed and protected horses so bridles and tack were studded with turquoise gems. In the Georgian period the stone was associated with the forget-me-not flower and so again became extremely fashionable.

You will receive 6x 20g mini skeins. Keep ’em for yourself or give as an awesome knitterly gift.
