It’s great to be back to our normal Monday Update posting schedule. The break is always appreciated during Camp Store Week, but it does mean that boxes of yarn keep accumulating in our stock room and we have to wait an extra week to share it with you! So tonight we added in:
The Fibre Company Canopy Worsted and Fingering – Canopy is a 3-ply strong, soft, shiny and drapey yarn. The fibers (50% Baby Alpaca, 30% Merino Wool, and 20% Viscose Bamboo) are spun into a smooth yarn and then kettle dyed. The fibers each absorb the dye slightly differently, which creates a beautiful depth of color with subtle heathered tones. The skeins come with 200 yards (both weights) and are great for wamer items like hats (like Star Crossed Slouch Beret), cowls (like Smooth Edge) and sweaters (like Vine Yoke Cardigan), as well as scarves, shawls (like Torrent) and socks. (Shown above in Worsted, Sumac.)
Into the Whirled Pakkoku – This will be our last batch of Into the Whirled for awhile, so get it while you can! (It’s a matter of base yarn availability. We’ll have it again when they can get a good supply back in.) I love the color combinations that they come up with. Truly unique and fun. These colors are great in patterns like Hitchhiker, Lintilla, Trillium, and other scarves, shawls and socks that mix things up a bit. (Shown here in Aurora Borealis.)
Malabrigo Mecha, Rasta, Rios, Sock – some re-stocks in back-ordered colors we’ve had in with the company for awhile.
Manos del Uruguay Serena – This sport weight yarn is so awesome to work with. 60% Baby Alpaca and 40% Pima Cotton, means that it’s super soft. The semi-solid colors make it great for patterns with lace or texture (like shawls, cowls, scarves and sweaters). It comes in both solids and multi colors. It would also be great to use a multi-color for a shawl body and the solid for the edging, in patterns like Cladonia,Roma, Cerasifera, River Walk, and Calliope’s Odyssey. (Shown here in Glacier.)
Fibernymph Dye Works Self-Striping – More of Lisa’s fun self-striping yarns, which are great to use for socks, hats, mitts and cowls. Our favorite this time around is Soft Kitty. I think Sheldon needs some socks out of Soft Kitty, don’t you? Does Penny knit? (Shown here in Soft Kitty.)
Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Wool Worsted and DK – re-stocks in all of the colors. Actually, we popped the Worsted re-stocks up last week, so that they’d be available for your Camp projects, too!
Is it time to start thinking about a new Fall sweater for yourself? Check out the new additions tonight and pick something fun. We’ll get it shipped right out to you!
