It has been another busy week of unpacking boxes and photo-ing new yarn. It was nice to get all of this out of the back room and onto the Loopy shelves today! Fortunately we are closed to in-store shoppers on Mondays, because the aisles are filled with boxes and wheeled carts and all kinds of inventory that we’re stocking on the shelves all day long. It would be frustrating if you were trying to wander the aisles and shop in person! But by Tuesday mornings, we’re always ready to welcome you in the shop again, so pop on by. Of course you can shop online 24/7 and we just added:
Madelinetosh Sock – this 100% superwash merino fingering weight yarn has been re-stocked in 65+ colors. We like this base for socks, but also for shawls and lightweight sweaters. (Shown here in Sequoia.)
Shalimar Breathless DK – this springy DK weight yarn is 75% Superwash Merino, 15% Cashmere, and 10% Silk. (Just like the regular Breathless that we all love, but a little bit thicker.) Beautiful for sweaters, but also perfect for one-skein hats, scarves, cowls and mitts.
Dream in Color Kits – We have added in the new Chelsea Kit, which supports the Chelsea’s Light Foundation. Your kit includes 1 skein of Dream in Color Smooshy, 1 mini skein of Dream in Color Smooshy, and an online coupon for Stephen West’s Akimbo Shawl pattern. We have three different color combos to pick from. Dream in Color is donating $10 from every one of these kits sold to Chelsea’s Light. (Shown here in the Sundown Orchid version). We have also added more of the Tulip Cardigan Kits in both the Boy and Girl color combos. These make adorable baby/toddler sweaters.
Spud and Chloe – re-stocks in Sweater (the worsted weight), Fine (the fingering weight), and Outer (the bulky weight).
Blue Sky Alpacas – re-stocks in Skinny Cotton (fingering weight), Worsted Cotton, Metalico (DK weight), and Alpaca Silk (DK weight.) We’ve also added in a few adorable kids patterns – the Cameron Hoodie, the Beatrice Top, and the Harriet Dress.
Manos del Uruguay – we’ve re-stocked the Serena, which is a sport weight yarn that is 60% Baby Alpaca and 40% Pima Cotton. This would make a wonderful sweater, shawl or cowl.
Namaste – Circular Cases have come in from our backorder! We received them in Lime, Black, Red, Eggplant, Hollywood Pink, and Caribbean Blue.
Offhand Designs – a new style of bag called the Arya. This bag holds a bunch! It is 13.5″ high x 17″ wide by 6″ deep. The middle section snap frame opens and closes (making it a great, safe place to store your wallet or iPad), and there are large open sections on either side of that for storing projects, needles, patterns, yarn, and a variety of other necessary items. We have it in three different fabrics. (Shown here in Nora.)
