Yummy Yarns & Pointy Things

The wait is over! We received our long anticipated order of Malabrigo this week. In addition to the marvelous Merino Worsted, the versatile Aquarella, and the heavenly lace-weight, we also received two new yarns. Gruesa is a thick and thin chunky kettle-dyed wool. Silky Merino (left) is a delectable 50/50 blend of silk and merino in Malabrigo's unbeatable colors. You have to feel it to believe how soft and light it is.
An order of Skacel's Addi Turbos and Addi Lace Turbos has come in! We've got all lengths and sizes so come and get 'em while they're hot - these guys go fast - especially in those popular sock sizes.
The June Limited Edition color of Southwest Trading Company's incredible sock phenomenon "Tofutsies". We love belonging to SWTC's Sock of the Month Club. Every month, we get a box from them with a unique new color of this fabulous yarn along with an exclusive pattern designed to compliment it. This pattern is free with your purchase of the Limited Edition color, so be sure to check it out. This yarn is a great blend of wool, cotton, soysilk, and chitin (a product of crab and shrimp shells that acts as a natural antibacterial) perfect for lighter weight socks, and such fun to knit with.
See you soon!
