Lorna’s Laces Solemate - a fingering weight base that is 55% Superwash Merino, 15% Nylon and 30% Outlast. (Outlast is a material that NASA uses in space. It absorbs heat when things are too hot and releases the heat back when things are too cold. That makes this yarn perfect for hands, feet, necks and heads!) 425 yards per skein. (Shown here in South Shore.)
Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock - a fingering weight yarn that is 80% Superwash Merino and 20% Nylon, with 430 yards in the skein. Shepherd Sock is great for socks, but also for shawls and scarves. And the colors are always fun!
Another Crafty Girl’s Strong Sock - a new indie dyer for us! Sarah dyes up her beautiful colorways in Chicago, and we are thrilled to have her line here at The Loopy Ewe. Strong Sock is a fingering weight yarn that is 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon, with 400 yards in the skein. Perfect for socks, shawls, scarves, hats and mittens. You’ll even find a few Halloween-ish colorways in this batch. (Shown here in I’m a Potato. Clearly you need to buy that just because of the inventive name.)
Shibui Knits Pebble - a laceweight yarn that is light, airy, and irresisteibly soft. The base is 48% silk, 36% wool, and 16% cashmere, with 224 yards to the skein. Wonderful for sweet laceweight shawls, scarves and cowls.
Moda Fabrics Pot Luck - fun solids, flowers, little chicks, and small patterns in yellows, oranges, lime greens, aquas, cherries, and mixes. (Shown here.)
Timeless Treasures Fabric Tonga Batiks - more gorgeous batiks, this time focusing on deep aquas and teals in the Atlantis series.
