New Yarns Have Arrived!

We have just received several shipments of new yarn. We are happy to announce the arrival of Malabrigo Merino Yarn from Uraguay. The handpainted and kettle dyed colors are beautiful and the texture so soft and light. You have to see it to believe it!

We have also received our first shipment of Be Sweet. This company is based in South Africa and is doing amazing things to help women. We have the Magic Ball yarn in many colors. This can make a fun and unique scarf.

We have also gotten several sock yarns in. New colorways from Lorna's Laces and Claudia's Handpaint. We now have Tofutsies yarn in many different colors. More is on the way too! To make your sock knitting more enjoyable we have also gotten in the Sox Stix from Lantern Moon. These come in three different types of wood, Ebony, Rosewood and Blondewood and they come in their own silk pouch! They are 5 inches long and soooo smooth!

We are excited to offer these new yarns and accessories. We will be posting the new class schedule soon. There are some new classes and events in the works... stay tuned!
