Skein – Top Draw Sock. This fingering weight yarn is dyed up by Kristen in Australia, and comes 437 yards to the skein. It’s 85% Superwash Merino and 15% Nylon. Kristen is known for her beautiful color blends! This would be great for socks, but also one-skein shawls, cowls and mitts as well. (Shown here in Night Owl).
Shalimar – Breathless. A few more colors from our last order. This fingering weight yarn is one of my personal favorites because the yarn base (75% Superwash Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% Silk) is so luscious. If you’re making special holiday gifts, you might want to use this. It would be perfect for socks, shawls, scarves, cowls and hats.
Camp Loopy Colors – We had the tent groups in Camp Loopy’s Project Three come up with Camp Colorways and inspiration photos, and Lorna’s Laces took them and turned them into the most beautiful colors. We have: In The Wind, Nature’s Glory, Lilac Fields, Northern Lights, Orange Sunset and Soft Sunrise available, and you’ll find them under the Camp Loopy section in Yarn. (Shown here in Nature’s Glory).
Malabrigo – Silkpaca. You all have been having fun with this. (Or at least you’re having fun ordering it!) This laceweight yarn comes 420 yards to the skein and is 70% Baby Alpaca and 30% Silk. It’s beautiful and feels soft and wonderful. You’ll love using it for shawls and scarves.
Socktopus – Sokkusu. This yarn is hand-dyed in the UK and has a wonderful twist to it. Your patterns will really pop! The 100% super wash merino is great for shawls and scarves, and equally popular for socks. (Shown here in Ayame).
Mountain Colors – Bearfoot. More colors in this warm sock yarn base. 60% Superwash Merino, 25% Mohair, and 15% Nylon, with 400 yards to the skein. You might also try these colors for a triple-color shawl, like the Thin Ice shawl I made awhile back. Pick a multi-color that you like, and then two different solids to go with it.
Della Q – New fabric yarn caddies and yarn dispensers from Della Q, in addition to a re-stock on needle cases.
Loopy Ewe Tote bags - Project Keepers (great for 8 1/2 x 11 pattern plus yarn and needles), Purse Pals (great for notions like your tape measure, scissor, darning needle, stitch markers, etc), and Large Project Totes (holds everything).
Dream in Color – October Dream Club Yarn. (Shown here). This new base is a fingering weight with 75% wool, 25% silk and comes 440 yards to the skein. When you purchase a skein, we’ll also send you a free emailed pattern for the Autumn Fern Mobius Cowl. (Remember, we will have more skeins available again next week, so check back if we run out.) In addition to the cowl, you could also use this gorgeous yarn for shawls, scarves, socks and mitts.
