This week we welcomed even more warm things into our yarn family!
Briggs & Little arrived, refreshing our stock of Sport, Heritage, and Country Roving, and bringing with it new-to-us Tuffy! An aran-weight wool-nylon blend, Tuffy is all about thick socks to layer over your cold toes this winter. The new Country Roving means we are ready for our Curling Sweater KAL that begins Tuesday, October 4th. The class is free if you purchase the materials with us, or 15$/class if you’re just looking for a bit of help on a WIP.
These beauties on the left are Ella Rae Huenique (Hue + Unique, ahaha cute), a washable wool/acrylic blend. While the label says it is a chunky, it feels more like a worsted/aran to me… either way, these 100g balls will work up into gorgeous accessories for gifts!
Similarly suitable for gifts, we have gotten in Harrap Tweed Chunky, the big sister of popular Harrap Tweed DK. A washable/dryable Nylon-Acrylic-Wool-Viscose blend, Harrap Chunky is ready to be worked up into some last-minute slippers and bed socks. One 100g ball has 184 yarns, so it makes a handy stash yarn for those emergency project situations.
If you’re thinking about baby showers or a new fall sweater for the kid in your life, we have the latest Sirdar Crofter DK & Crofter Baby DK colours! I can’t even put into words how popular our Crofter samples are… the sweaters can be knit over and over and over, with a self-striping yarn that makes the experience painless~
With the new troops came a cavalcade of pattern books and leaflets – pictured are the books, there are quite literally hundreds of new leaflets that you’ll have to come in and see for yourself!
