a breath-taking new addition to the store

we are enjoying the sunshine on the west coast very much, who says it rains here all the time?

we have received lots of new products all which will enter our stores in the coming weeks but we felt this one had to be first and deserved some special attention. our most beautiful shawl pins ever: made of kamagong wood a special smooth dark wood that grows only in the philippines, originally designed in switzerland for something truely special.
a lovely addition to neutral tone yarns or for accentuating a summer lace shawl!

Imagine a day at work where you surround yourself with unique Swiss designed shawl pins, gorgeous buttons created in Holland, oh so precious yarns from the UK, and fabulous high quality felt and felting accessories, plus wonderfully, eclectic, full of life and spirit fibre artists. Knitting, felting and crochet it happens all in Pollika’s world. Just so you know English is my second language, here and there my fast thinking brain cells get confused and infected with my first language: Dutch. So, most posts are going to be written in ‘Denglish’. The will be accompanied by Lesley’s photography talent, that likes me to believe they will be clear, inspiring and bring a smile to your face! We welcome your comments! Tina
