10 October 2013

The new yarns just keep rolling in.

The newest yarn is Regia Designer Line Random Stripe by Kaffe Fassett. This is another sock yarn with colors that only Kaffe Fassett can do. So, if you're thinking of socks for gifts or another lightweight scarf or shawlette, this is the yarn.

This color is called heathers and is one of the six colors of the Designer Line. All six colors are in stock now.

And LUMIO, wow. That yarn is hard to keep in stock. The last two colors arrived today. STOP is a red (figures doesn't it) and CAYENNE which is a warm brown. So if the bright neon like colors have been stopping you, Cayenne just might do the trick.

5 October 2013

I was so busy yesterday that I didn't get to post about the newest yarn that just arrived. The yarn is called SOUK. This is a silk/wool blend. Notice that I said silk/wool and not wool/silk. This yarn is 55% silk!

The silk gives this yarn radiant colors. You just can't beat the depth and brilliance of colors when silk is the major component of a blend yarn. The yarn is a single ply and knits to 4 sts/inch.

The colors are long period repeat and tweeded for a richness that will make any item that you knit just sing.
There are several colors and we've knitted up a small sample. Stop by when you have a moment and take a look.

Another shipment of Alpaca Lace has arrived and you just can beat the price and this is baby alpaca. There are 437 yards of lusciously soft yarn in a 50 gm ball.

I know that it is not very cold right now but Winter is coming so stock up now.

And finally, Berroco Abode has arrived. This is another single ply yarn that is 100% merino wool and knits a 4.5 sts/inch. We're knitting a model from the Gaughan #13 book called Merle. We think it is just striking and the Abode color that we're using makes it even better.

Here's a close-up of the Abode color that we're knitting the model out of:

The yarn is cuddly soft and and the sweater is just gorgeous.
