The July update is now sold out. Please check in for the next update on Friday, 25 August at 1pm Eastern time.
I’ve been captivated lately by the oddities of late 19th century patent medicines, which claimed some extremely dubious medical benefits. I can’t guarantee that gobstoppers will cure anything except possibly knitting boredom or a life devoid of colour, but I did find inspiration in some of the stranger products. That’s right– inspired by snake oil, I’ve made up a few names of my own for this lot of gobstoppers; if any of the names seem weird, rest assured that the actual historic names (and medical claims) were even odder!
As always, every gobstopper is one-of-a-kind, so if you see something you love, contact me via email to claim it.Yarn details and prices are available here. If you have questions about anything, please get in touch via email; I’m always happy to send additional photos or descriptions if you have questions about the colours of a particular gobstopper. (Colours may vary considerably across different devices!)
