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...

Spincycle Yarns On The Way

We’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be carrying Spincycle Yarns! This Bellingham-based company features yarns sourced in the USA. Best of all, they’re spun and dyed locally. The two-woman team that runs Spincycle contracts with a mother-daughter partnership on Camano Island to spin the yarn in their micro-mill. All of their lovely yarns are dyed in the wool, so each is just a little bit unique. To start, we’ll be carrying two Spincycle yarns: Dyed In The Wool, a sport weight, and Knit Fast, Die Young, a deliciously colored and textured bulky. Look for these yarns in early...

Blue Moon Rising

Join us Thursday through Sunday at the Madrona Fiber Arts Festival at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma. In our booth we’ll be introducing four more yarns from Blue Moon Fiber Arts, maker of the ever-popular Socks That Rock. The yarns will be available at the store from February 16 onward. We think you’ll love them as much as we do. Silky Victoria, a DK yarn, is 85 percent Polworth wool and 15 percent silk. It’s soft and lofty with a touch of shine and excellent stitch definition. Targhee Worsted comes from a domestic sheep breed known for its extra-lofty wool. Raised and milled domestically, this yarn wears exceptionally well. Yaksi Fingering is actually a merino-yak-silk blend. This wonderfully soft, tightly spun wool is excellent for lace knitting. Sookie is an extra-bulky single-ply. It’s light and soft, felts wonderfully and comes in Blue Moon’s signature...
