Our 'currently reading' micro-collections are limited edition shades inspired by the book currently on my bedside table.
Each collection comprises just a handful of shades, dyed on a variety of yarn bases and is released as I'm reading a book I'm loving.
Once they're gone, that's it! They are all one-of-a-kind shades that won't reappear, so if you see something you love grab it while you can.
Please note - this limited edition collection does not qualify for our 'sweater quantity' discount.
