Happy Fall

October has brought in crisp autumn temperatures while our fall shipments roll in with the leaves. We are very excited about new yarns this season.

Rowan has brought out a gorgeous new yarn called Lima which comes in 10 fabulous colors & is soft to the touch being made of baby alpaca & merino.

We have 2 new yarns from the Fibre Co., Terra & Canopy. They are blends of luxurious fibers in mouth watering colors.

First is Terra is a blend of baby alpaca, wool & silk which we have in 5 beautiful colors below:

The blend of fibers gives this yarn a very unique texture and the softness makes it perfect for any special handknit.

We got in 7 beautiful fall colors of Canopy in the worsted weight which is a soft blend of baby alpaca, merino & bamboo.

We are so excited to introduce Madeline Tosh to the shop! This luxurious yarn is a pleasure to knit with and we have an array of colors in the worsted weight line. We wish you could feel the softness through the photo, but we think it speaks for itself.

Last for this blogpost, but certainly not least we have brought back a customer favorite, Nimbus, which is an organic merino yarn. The new fall colors are great!

Come on in and touch these beautiful yarns which are only a few of what's in the shop! Hope to see you soon!
