A new journey

Hello everyone.  I hope the sun is shining where you are!  In my last post I mentioned that I was starting a new business hence why I had been quiet.  I thought I would share with you what I am doing and what that means for Isla of Axholme.  

My new venture is an online wool shop called BritYarn.  It hasn't opened yet but everyday I am ticking things of my list and getting a step closer.  BritYarn will specialise and only sell wool grown in Great Britain with the aim of promoting and supporting British businesses.  If you are interested in knitting, crochet or weaving it would be great to continue chatting over on Twitter @brityarn and on Instagram again as BritYarn.  If social media is not your thing I will also be writing a BritYarn blog (I will post a link here to my first BritYarn post).

A lot of my posts here were knitting and wool related and in the future they will appear in BritYarn's blog.  Unfortunately this means that there will be spells when Isla of Axholme goes quiet.  I hope to continue sharing what books I have been reading and my travels but at the moment I am not doing much of either!

Until next time


  1. That is very exciting, Isla, I wish you all the very best with your new venture! I look forward to keeping up with your woolly news via BritYarn, make sure you post a link! xx
