It's raining yarn!

There may be a drought outside, but inside the shop we are swimming in yarn. Each day seems to bring a new cloudburst of boxes full of the beautifully colored yarns we ordered at the beginning of summer from our reps and at Yarn Market. We are restocking some of our favorites and welcoming many new yarns to our inventory.

Two of our new yarns are Sea Sock and Double Sea Silk by Hand Maiden. Sea Sock is a silk, merino, and Seacell mix in a fingering weight. Double Sea Silk is a silk and Seacell mix in a DK weight. Both drape beautifully and we have a lovely assortment of colors. We've also received Fleece Artist's Kidazzle, a merino, kid, and nylon sock yarn blend.

Another new yarn is Mountain Color's Jeannette. This cashmere and silk sport weight yarn will make an elegant gift for someone special. It is super soft!

We are dreaming of cooler days ahead when we can wear some of the new yarns we've received that have a little sparkle! On the shelf now are Adriafil's Malizia, a wool and acrylic blend in a bulky weight, Plymouth's Juli, an alpaca and nylon blend in a chunky weight, and Berroco's Flicker, an alpaca and acrylic blend in a worsted weight. All have a little metallic twinkle to brighten up the winter days.

Stop by on Saturdays through the end of August to give some of our new yarns a test knit or crochet! Some of our recent Sample It yarns were Juniper Moon's Willa, Universal Yarn's Classic Shades, Debbie Bliss' Paloma and Riva, Asland Trend's Royal Alpaca and Cascade's Eco Alpaca. Enter our weekly Saturday drawing for a door prize and check out the overflowing sale bin!
