Madelinetosh DK – we’ve re-stocked more than 90 colors for you. This is a popular weight for sweaters (try the Gnarled Oak Cardigan, Cinnie, or Blank Canvas), shawls (how about the Clementine Shawlette, Anjeli, Great Divide, or Shaelyn), hats, scarves and cowls. Shown here in Dahlia.
Rowan Fine Art – a fingering weight yarn that is perfect for socks and shawls. The base is 45% Merino Wool, 20% Kid Mohair, 10% Mulberry Silk and 25% Polyamid. It will be warm (thanks to the wool and mohair) and it will wear well (thanks to the silk and polyamid). Shown here in Chiff Chaff because 1) I like that name a lot and 2) it’s a great neutral color.
Shibui Heichi – a re-stock on all of the colors, as well as new colors for the season. We’ve had a trunk show in the shop with garments made out of Heichi, and have had fun seeing what people are making. Try it with the Mondo Cable Pulli, Beeline, or Garance.
Shibui Linen – a new base for us, which is especially nice for spring and summer tops. This is a fingering weight, which can be doubled for heavier weight patterns. Perfect for Linen Top, Rock Ness, Silken Straw Summer Sweater, Insouciant, Flow, or Deep V Tee.
Shibui Silk Cloud and Sock - re-stocked.
Into the Whirled – more of the very popular Pakkoku fingering weight base in their wonderful color combinations. This is a great yarn for socks, fun multi-color scarves and shawls (like Hitchhiker, Lintilla, Trillian, and A Little Jazz.) All of those little shawl/scarves make great one-skein, quick knit gifts. Shown here in A Musing Anecdote.
ChiaoGoo - a re-stock of all needle sizes.
Atenti Bags – new fabrics and popular re-stocks in both the Overnighter Bags and the Baguette Bags. I love these bags. The Overnighter is perfect for larger projects (sweaters, afghans) or for corralling all of your smaller project bags into one nice looking place. They also make great bags to carry on to planes. The Baguette Bags are just the right size for one or two skein projects (socks, cowls, shawls, hats).
Enjoy the new things and we’ll be back in the shop tomorrow to get all of your orders packed up and shipped out.
