28 May 2019
By Danielle Harris

Viridian have introduced four brand new shades of Opal Uni solid 4 ply sock and sweater yarn “Opal Neon”.

Brighten up the dullest of days and dare to be bold with these four vibrant colours in your knitwear, perfect for all projects from stylish socks to jazzy jumpers.
Why not mix up your knit by incorporating another colour from the Uni range, Viridian think Deep-Black or Medium-Grey would look fantastic together with these shades or to make an even greater impact a mixture of the Neon colours would look incredible.
Opal sock yarn is made of 75 per cent virgin wool and 25 per cent polyamide, it’s hard wearing yet gentle to delicate skin, perfect for both little ones and the more mature skin. Opal wool is machine washable at 40° for your convenience. Knit with passion, knit with Opal.

Your Passion Turned Profession Deserves to be Protected

24 May 2016
By Danielle Harris

Your passion turned profession deserves to be protected

Many crafters don’t realise that if you run a business from home and make and sell products online or at fairs and markets, you need to consider business insurance to cover your business against unforeseen circumstances.

Even a relatively minor accident, such as a slip or trip at an event or the manufacture of a faulty product could lead to a claim which may end up costing your business thousands of pounds.

Cover is not as expensive as you might think, prices start from £55 a year (60% of customers achieved this price or less between Nov 15-Apr 16)

At Direct Line for Business, we provide Home Business Insurance designed specifically for businesses running from home. Cover is tailored to suit your needs.

Call Direct Line for Business on: 0345 303 1739

Lines are open: 8am-8pm Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm Sat, 10am-4pm Sun
