After a long time dreaming about it, my very special friend Claudia opens the doors to her wonderful yarn shop, Wollsinn, in Oppenheim/Germany. For many years Claudia has been cooking up a storm, dyeing beautiful yarns and selling them via her website. She is also one of the largest stockists of the gorgeous Isager Yarns I know, and when not dyeing or selling yarn, organises the Schwabsburger Wollfest with a friend and Knitting Retreats in Wales with me. We also work on many design collaborations together, and have come up with something very special for the opening tomorrow.


May I introduce my brand new design, Moya Star Shawl! This beauty of a shawl is made up of 40 crochet stars, specially designed to show off the gorgeous yarn from South Africa. The yarn is organically produced by women co-operatives, hand dyed and is the softest cotton I have ever worked with.

The shawl has been test crochet by my lovely friend Marianne and Claudia’s friend Manu just to make sure it is error free for you.

From tomorrow until next Wednesday, 24 September, the pattern will be exclusively available in Wollsinn’s shop, after that you will be able to purchase it from both Claudia and my website’s (more details will follow). We so hope you will love this shawl as much as we do!

Please join me in wishing Claudia many happy and successful years in her new stunning and welcoming yarn emporium.

    Thank you Sam, I am so happy that so many seem to like my Moya shawl and the yarn is truly gorgeous, so very soft. I am talking to Claudia at the moment about making her online shop available to be read in English too, that would make it much easier for my followers to order. If you ever want anything, just drop her an email and she will sort you out, even if the item is not on her website. Hugs, Heike xx
