More Monday Fun for you! (Did you miss the Monday Update last week? It’s always a little sad to me when we have to miss a week. But we’re back!) Tonight, we added in:
Hedgehog Fibres – this beautiful yarn comes from Cork, Ireland and is dyed up by the talented Beata. We have started out with the fingering weight base that is 90% super wash merino and 10% nylon. This has to be some of the softest 90/10 that I have ever knit with. And the colors are just gorgeous. I used a skein of this in the Peasant color to make this Ananke Shawl for my Camp Loopy Project One. (Click on the photo to make it bigger, so you can see all of the pretty colors in there!)
Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere – I admit, I have a particular fondness for yarn that contains a bit of cashmere. This yarn base is one of my favorites! And while 80/10/10 bases (80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon) are pretty common, Smooshy with Cashmere is 70/20/10 (70% Superwash Merino, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon). Even more luscious!
Dream in Color Perfectly Posh – You all loved this base when we had it for the Dream Club, and then when we used it for one of our Spring Giftables kits. I really liked knitting with it when I was working on the hat pattern for the Giftables club. The single ply fingering weight is 70% Wool, 10% Cashmere, and 10% Kid Mohair. Don’t let the mohair fool you. You will not find this scratchy in any way. It’s the softest, finest mohair available. What it does is keep you extra warm, so it’s perfect for hats, scarves, gloves and shawls.
Namaste – We were overdue for an order of bags and accessories from Namaste, and they have arrived! (We do have a few items still on backorder, so we’ll update those when they come in later.) Lots of colors and styles for you to choose from.
Mochimochi – Anna sent us a whole new batch of kits to make her fun little creatures, including some new ones. These little guys are kind of addictive. I’ll bet you’ll have a hard time making just one!
Enjoy checking out the new things tonight, and we’ll get your orders pulled and packed up tomorrow. You know we love seeing what you pick out.
