Lots and Lots of New Yarn
This past week we got a LOT of new yarn in from Berroco! We got in new colors of some of our old favorites, like Ultra Alpaca, Cotton Rich and Touche. But what we are really excited about are all the brand new yarns that arrived, all of the new spring collection from Berroco, in fact! Comfort DK is perfect for easy care, easy wear summer basics and items for babies and children because its super soft, allergy free and machine washable! We got in two new linen blend yarns, just in time for us to start our spring and summer knitting. Linen Jeans is a tape yarn and Naturlin is a plyed yarn. Both yarns come in beautiful, earth inspired colors. If earthy isn't your thing, maybe you'd prefer Lumina-- a cotton base yarn wrapped with metalic stands in "ethereal" shades. We think they would be perfect in ladder shawls, sexy little summer tops, or for any other occasion where you want to shine! Seduce caught everyone's eye as soon as we unboxed it because of its rich colors and luxurious sheen. Light and elegant, it contains linen and silk. If you are a sock knitter, you won't want to miss Berroco's new self patterning sock yarn- Sox. We got in almost every color offered and they are GORGEOUS. Take a look at the Berroco website now so that you can see how they look knit up. Stunning!
From Lang, we got got Aura an oo-la-la ribbon yarn in pale blue and silver, and MerinoSeta a super soft merino silk yarn that you just want to cuddle up with.
I may be leaving something out...there are so many new yarns its hard to keep track of them all! We also had new shipments of both Addi and Crystal Palace needles arrive.
If you haven't visited the shop in the last week or so, come on by. We have a lot to show you!
