A Taste of Fall

It still may be toasty outside, but inside the store we’re getting set up for fall. Cory Ellen Boberg of Indie.Knits is putting the finishing touches on a brand-new design our fall knitalong sweater (more on that coming soon!) Meanwhile, stock arrives almost daily. Yesterday we received a new shipment of Good Company Wares totes and bucket baskets. They’re made in Portland and feature extra-sturdy canvas and leather handles. The day before, we received Villa, a sister yarn to the much-admired Vail, a slinky and soft alpaca-bamboo blend. While Vail is undyed, Villa features deep, saturated colors. A new batch of Malabrigo yarns is on its way, and another shipment of Madelinetosh yarns are in the dyepot right now. We can’t wait to see what comes through the door next week, ready for knitting...

New In The Store

We have lots of exciting new products in the store this summer. In addition to Spincycle yarns (see post below), we have other new yarns. CoBaSi DK is a pretty and practical summer yarn that contains no wool. Its fiber content, as the name implies, includes cotton, bamboo and silk, as well as a little nylon for strength. Just for fun we’ve added Abracadabra (above), a yarn that changes color in the sunlight. Indoors it appears white. Outside it is either pink or purple. Surprise those you meet with a suddenly-striped hat, or knit a summer tank that blooms with the light. For spinners and felters, we now carry a wool/alpaca raw fiber from Blue Sky Alpacas. Also check out our gradient roving from Frabjous Fibers. Lastly, we have a slew of new books and magazines. Come check them...
