Latest News

In March we received a wonderful business boost from Retail Entrepreneur, Theo Paphitis. We tweeted Theo on Twitter/X about our small British-breed yarn business in Launceston, Cornwall during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and we were one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet or repost by Theo to his over half a million Twitter/X and Instagram followers.

The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has over 3,500 SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK. We are delighted to be selected as a SBS official winner, to join this fantastic network of small businesses and to be profiled on the SBS website (, an exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.
