Happy birthday, dear Townhouse!

We’ve got reason to celebrate! Today, Townhouse Yarns is one year old!

To mark the occasion, Jenny is launching a new range of gorgeous laceweight – a 55%/45% merino and silk blend. It’s 800 metres of stunning colour and fibre, and it’s called Trinity!

And since birthdays bring presents to mind, we’re giving a skein of Trinity away! The glorious colourway below doesn’t have a name, so can you give it one?

Just suggest a name in the comments below before 5.30pm on Saturday June 13th (that’s shop closing time). One lucky person will win a skein of Trinity of their choice!

Why June 13th, you ask? Well, it’s our other reason for celebration round now – it’s the date of World Wide Knit in Public Day! We’ve got lots and lots of other exciting things planned to mark the day and we’ll be announcing them very soon, so watch this space!

And many happy returns, Townhouse!

    I would like to suggest Lady Amelia who was the first owner of Powerscourt Townhouse and apparently loved to party, my kind of woman…and the coulors of the wool are beautiful and festive.

    So beautiful – my name is ‘Hummingbird glow’ understated yet beautiful, and everytime you look you can see a different colour emerging

  3. Monica Nolan

    A suggestion would be KINGFISHER, or maybe another – the FEATHERBED in Spring – GORSE, HEATHER, SKY…beautiful images evoked by the colours…
    Happy Birthday, Townhouse Yarns!

    It reminds me of the beginning of a storm…so I’d call it “calm before storm”.

  5. Maria Breslin Byrne

    Hi reminds me of fields of Heathers, so going with “Heathers” or “Shades of Heathers”

  6. Kirsty

    It makes me think of the book “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” somehow, so I suggest “Electric Sheep”.

    How about Prism? This yarn reminds me of the rainbow spectrum of light when you shine it through a prism.

    DANCING ON THE COBBLES -it made me think of the trinity ball & all the beautiful dresses, middle of the night…the cobbles…beautiful people….!

    They are all beautiful my suggestion for a name is SHIMMERER they all glow so marvellously looking forward to seeing them en mass ! and to deciding what to knit with them

    Connemara – you have the blue and green of the sea, with the yellow and pink of the wild flowers

  11. Janita

    It makes me think of the ocean and the beautifull shells you can find on the beach, so: Ocean, Pacific waves, Pearl-shell, Mother-of-pearl.

    Paua

    Having see this beauty in real life, it really reminds me of paua shell, please google images if you have never seen one!

    Paua shells (say “pah-wah”) are the most beautiful shells in the world. They are found in the deep waters off of the South Island of New Zealand near the Antarctic. This deep cold water produces a hard shell with rich deep beautiful color. Colours vary as the shell is viewed at different angles ranging from vibrant blues, to greens to purples, with an iridescence shine.

    Irish Skies – I’ve seen just about all of these colours in the sky at one time or another

    Maybe Cloudburst would be a good name. The yarn looks like rainbow colours trying to burst out of a grey sky.

    Because there is silk in it and there is such a wonderful array of colour, how about “A Shine of Rainbows”.
    That is the name of a film too, so if that couldn’t be used maybe “Shining Rainbow”
