Hello my fellow yarn lovers!

Spring has finally sprung, and we have new yarns decorating our yarn shelves this spring! We have three new additions to our selection of yarns and I wanted to tell you a bit about them.

First, there is Moda dea Silk'n Wool Blend. This yarn combines the luxury of silk with the quality of Australian wool to make a fabulous yarn you'll want to use again and again. The yarn is a tonal tweed look and has is perfect for hand made fashion and beautiful home decor projects as well. This yarn is 85% Wool 15% Silk at 138 yds/127m per 80 gm ball, and uses a US size 8.

Next, we have added Red Heart® Soft Baby Steps™. This is the wonderfully soft yarn you know and love in fresh, no-dye-lot baby solids. And best of all for those little ones projects: It is easy care with machine wash and dry! Each skein is 256 yards and uses a US size 8 needle.

Finally, we have two new tweed colors of Fishermen's Wool Yarn. This yarn is wonderful! It is authentic 100% pure virgin wool with natural lanolin oil, and is amazingly soft and warm! This yarn is the ideal option for ski and fisherman sweaters; and is equally suitable for hats, scarves, throws, etc. As decadent to knit with as your finished projects will be! This yarn has a 16s x 22r gauge on a US size 9 needle and these new tweeds blend beautifully with the solid colors!

Stop in and see the new additions and check out your old favorites too! We look forward to seeing you soon!
