Our Favourite Things Number 1:

Morris Empire! It’s no surprise that our lovely Morris Empire has been a hit this winter. And who doesn’t love it! It is a beautiful merino wool yarn, comes in 2, 4 and 8ply AND looks especially greats when it is done in fair isle. If you’re looking for a project to knit on these long winter nights then check out our Ainsley Fair Isle Beret. This has been a hit here at Morris and Sons and we’re sure you’ll love it too.

Well, to celebrate our Winter Sale, we have 3 new patterns, all to do with owls!


This is Oswald. He’s an 11cm tall baby owl with a keen sense of adventure!





We also have two crocheted patterns; Oscar, the amigurumi owl who will hang out anywhere you like (literally!), and Oliver the coaster, who likes nothing more than helping you relax with a cuppa.
