Autumn Colors

This time of year always makes my knitting energy surge. Maybe it's the cooler temps or the leaves changing color, but probably it's the new fall yarns arriving daily!  We have so many new exciting yarns and I am thrilled with all of them (I know you will be too!).

First, Shibui Baby Alpaca DK - it comes in gorgeous 100gram hanks and is made of the softest baby alpaca. 

Next is Shibui Pebble - a fantastic blend of wool, silk and cashmere. The tweed effect is distinctive and it is oh-so soft to the touch. 


MadelineTosh has delivered so many gorgeous hand-painted yarns in Merino light, Merino DK and Pashmina. Each hank is more colorful than the next! 

Made From the Mountain has delivered us  undeniably soft hand spun cashmere from Afghanistan. It comes in four natural colors and begs to be knit up for something close to the skin.  

Lastly, but certainly not least, we are very excited for our 5th annual bus trip to Rhinebeck for the NY Sheep and Wool Festival. There are still seats available if you would like to join! Call the shop for details.
