Competition: your colour is waiting...

Thursday Aug 20, 2015

Recently we received a visit from the lovely sisters, Poppy and Molly. They were thrilled with Minty's ubiquitous 'jar of cloos' and quite rightly associated them with a jar of sweeties.

The question was posed, 'how many cloos of yarn do you think are in there?' And so started the competition...

Together with their mam, we picked a prize for the winner. A rigg cape - they decided...

A further decision was reached - and that although their favourite colour is shown here - the winner can pick their own colour!

The cloos have now been counted, and entries can be made by submitting your details using the form on this page, or in person in the studio. The competition is open until 4th October (the end of Shetland Wool Week), and the winner will be notified by 11th October.

Thank you very much to Poppy and Molly's mam for allowing us to play and giving us permission to post these fabulous photos of her two sweeties.
