Fall has started to arrive...

This time of year is very exciting at the shop and for fiber enthusiasts. The temperatures start dropping, you may need a light sweater for an early morning commute and new yarns for fall start rolling in.

Unlike summer when I know exactly what Danny (our UPS man) is bringing, fall brings a bit of a buzz as so many new things are coming! This week has been full of excitement.

We received some Maxima from Manos del Uruguay (1 of 2 shipments) and are very pleased. Manos del Uruguay is a company that is a part of the World Fair Trade Organization because they actively support women's cooperatives throughout Uruguay. Their yarns have the best colors and the Maxima is super soft.

Next we restocked our Shepherd's Wool from Stonehedge Fiber Mill, a Michigan made yarn. This is a soft worsted weight wool 100% USA made

A brand new line to Patricia's Yarns is Brown Sheep. A very large box came from Nebraska full of Lambs Prided worsted & superwash worsted. A rainbow of colors from American made Brown Sheep now fill their fare share of shelves.

Finally, Lantern Moon delivered some gorgeous needle cases, baskets & notions perfect for every yarn lover.

New items are arriving daily so check in often for the best selection. Who knows what will spark your next creative urge.
