This is the Allium Threads yarn and thread club based around the clothing that the characters in the books by Jane Austen would have worn.

It is  a bi-monthly club because natural dyeing can be a slow process and using some dyestuffs can take a few weeks.

This is a listing for yarn that will be delivered in July 2024. This will be available for purchase until 16th June. The yarn and thread will then be dyed and then sent out in the second half of July 2024.

This is the second installment of the Allium Threads bi-monthly yarn and thread club and we are moving on to Lesley Castle, written in 1792 when Jane was 16.

This is an unfinished novella, told in letters. Two friends write to each other, sharing secrets and revealing their characters. They are both self-centered and often write at cross-purposes. It is full of Austen wit and you can see how some of the themes and character traits will be used again in later books.  

There is a choice of four variations to choose from:

1. 100g plus 20g of Acorn Four ply sock - 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon. 425m per 100g, 85m per 20g.

2. Two 100g skeins of Haw lace weight yarn - 70% Baby Alpaca, 20% Silk, 10% Cashmere 100g Skeins Approx. 800m

3 Two 100g skeins of Fruit Four ply - 50% Exmoor Blueface 30% Bluefaced Leicester, 20% Lustre Breeds. 388m per 100g. Spun in Devon from local fleece by John Arbon - this is their Devonia base. 

4. Four skeins of 24m skeins of silk embroidery thread


Within each variation, the skeins will co-ordinate and the mood board gives a flavour of the colours that may be included.

The prices vary depending on the yarn chosen.

If you change address between ordering and shipping, it is your responsibility to inform me at that the shipping address has changed.
