Monday Fun for you! We just added in:
Madelinetosh Merino Light - in 80+ colors! This single-ply fingering weight base has been especially popular for shawls, sweaters, scarves and cowls. The yarn is 100% superwash merino and comes with 420 yards in the skein. I like using this for multi-color shawl combinations, like the Pamuya and Whippoorwill shawls that I made, or the Faberge that our customer Cricket made and has on display in our shop. It would also be pretty in a Color Affection or the Derecho. Of course it’s gorgeous for single-color shawls as well. I just seem to have an especially fun time picking out color combos! (Shown here in Baltic.)
Schoppel Wolle Zauberball - This slow color-shifting yarn is so pretty when used for socks, shawls, hats, mitts, and gloves. We have it re-stocked in the Sock weight and DK weight. (Shown here in Zauberball 100 in #1505.)
Trekking - lots of this workhorse sock yarn in XXL and the Trekking Tweeds. This is the yarn you want to use for gift socks, if you know the person you’re giving them to is going to toss them in the washer and dryer. Plus, the colors are beautiful!
Blue Q Bags - If you like Owls, Kittens, Fox, Reading, and numerous other activities, you’ll love the new designs we’ve just added in the Blue Q line! We’ve also re-stocked your other favorites. These are really great bags for projects and accessories, as well as gift bags for special gifts.
Fabric - Did you notice that we added Fabric to our website last week? We are so excited! The Quilting Elves have been busy making beautiful samples for the shop, and we have been sending out fabric orders as they arrive. We have multiple lines of contemporary fabrics, batiks, Civil War reproductions, and more from Moda, Riley Blake, Adornit (shown here, left), Birch (shown here, right), and Timeless Treasures, with more in the works.
In addition to regular yardage (1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and full yards), we also offer all of our fabrics in Fat Quarter cuts. You’ll see a link for ordering Fat Quarters on each individual fabric product page, under the photo. We also have multiple pattern companies, and the sewing notions have started to arrive as well. And you’ll love our photos. We’ve taken the time to photo all of the fabric ourselves (instead of using stock photos from the fabric companies) and we think it makes a difference. You know you can click on photos on our website to make them all bigger, right? If you like to quilt or sew, pop over and check out the ever-expanding Loopy Ewe Fabric Shop! Of course all of our regular rewards apply to your fabric purchases as well.
Have fun shopping and we’ll get your orders out asap!
