If you’ve been to the shop lately, you can see there are changes afoot. We’re really excited about what’s happening, but we’re going to wait to tell you about it, so in the meantime, let’s talk about some of the new yarn we have in stock.
Sweet Fiber Yarns
We discovered B.C.-based Sweet Fiber Yarns at the DKC Knitter’s Frolic and were immediately drawn to the soft semi-solid colourways. We’re really excited to introduce this luscious yarn to those of you who either didn’t make it to the Frolic or missed their table in all the excitement.
At the moment we have both Silk Cashmere Lace (55% silk, 45% cashmere) and Avery Lace (50% merino wool, 50% silk) in stock, but we are working toward bringing in more of their yarns, so stay tuned.
Turtlepurl Yarns Striped Turtle Toes is a seriously fun yarn. The yardage (all 450 yards of it!) is split into two matching mini-skeins, which, when started from the same ends, will result in perfectly matching striped socks. No more cutting out bits to get the colour repeats to line up – Turtlepurl has done all the work for you.
Better yet, the ball bands have little colour photos to show you exactly how the colours will stripe. Certainly your gauge and stitch pattern will have an effect, but knowing how things will stack up ahead of time is pretty nice. Just looking at these yarns makes us want to knit Jaywalkers!
Yes, we’ve mentioned this once or twice, but we have tons of colours of Madeline Tosh in stock, in both Tosh Sock and Tosh DK. Our colours are split pretty evenly between tonal solids and variegated colourways, with a good selection of neutrals thrown in Whether you’re looking for the perfect shawl, sock, sweater, or tank-top yarn, we’ve got a colour to suit you.
