Filling the shelves!

We have been busy the last few weeks meeting with all of our yarn reps and looking at the new yarns and yarn colors for fall. And now, some of those new yarns are arriving at the shop! Here is our Manos wall with a new supply of the super soft Maxima yarn! These bright colors will make an awesome snowboarder hat for that young person in your life.

Our Plymouth Encore wall has been replenished with a large assortment of colors! If you need to make an afghan for a new grad, new baby or newlywed couple, now is the time to come in for the best color selection!

One of our favorite customers was singing the praises of Cascade Yarn's Pacific and when the yarn rep showed it to us, we had to agree! This merino wool and acrylic yarn is so soft and pretty! It is a worsted weight yarn that knits up to 4.5 to 5 sts per inch on a US 7 to 8 needle and has 213 yards per skein.

Also new in the baby yarn section is Cascade's Cherub DK and Cherub Baby. Both are nylon and acrylic blends for easy care and they are oh, so soft! The Cherub DK has 180 yards and knits to 5.5 to 6 sts per inch on a US 4 to 5 needle. The Cherub Baby has 229 yards per skein and knits to 6 to 7 sts per inch on a US 3 to 4 needle.

Oh, my! What's this in the box we just opened? A new supply of Madelinetosh's Tosh Sock yarn! Last year's Sock Club members used this yarn in one of their kits and we sold out very quickly. Each of the different colorways is so beautiful that it is hard to choose for a project! Come by a take a look. We'll be getting these onto the shelves today!

Get a head start on your Christmas knitting! Come see what is new at Twisted Yarns!
