Fall is Here!

The weather was nice while it lasted, but now it’s time to think ahead to cold, blustery days and warm, cozy sweaters and accessories. (And a certain special gift-giving time that’s only 10 weeks away!) We’ve got lots of lovely yarns and projects to help you face winter in style. Check out our new Kid Silk Trio, a much thicker version of perennial favorite Kid Silk Haze. Or wrap yourself in some Baby Alpaca Chunky. This week we’ll be receiving Tundra, a thicker version of Organik, the popular alpaca/merino/silk blend that’s smooth, soft and comes in wonderfully subtle colors. We’ve got tons of patterns for cowls, scarves, fingerless mitts and all the other fashionable accessories for fall. Come check them...
