The Cascade 220 is here!

Today more boxes to unload! Wow! We received some just fabulous alpaca yarn in 'eco' undyed colors as well as some dyed. Amazing hand! With that also came the new wool/linen blend from Italy. This 'Rustic' is very light and lofty but not fuzzy. I would make a wonderful man's sweater with cables. The swatch I saw was cabled and so light and airy I thought of my husband being too hot in a traditional wool sweater. It''s got a heathery tone in gray, black and brown.
Also in this batch was the 30 top selling colors of Cascade 220 worsted wool. Lovely colors! and some other EcoWool in large hanks, fewer ends to weave in with the larger hanks. These are undyed.
Last week we got some wonderful dye-able alpaca,wool and cashmere blends in natural aran color from Plymouth. Why not try your hand at making your own colors with cool aid? It's great fun!

There are some great deals in the shop now, everything not already marked down is 25% off! We will only keep the sale on til Saturday so come in now for best selection!

Spring Sale On Now!

Hi everyone! Happy Spring? Oh, Happy Spring! I wasn't sure it was officially here yet because it's still too chilly. Anyway, here we or I go again. I've bought a lot, A LOT! of yarn. My addiction problem could be a boon for you. I've decided to try to make you all happy and at the same time move enough yarn to be able to walk in the back room. Yup, I did it again. Anyone notice the Encore wall was looking a little sad even pathetic? Well not anymore! New colors and bags of the stuff. Do you have plans for an afghan? Now's the time. 25% off.
Actually everything is 25% off if it's not already marked down! There are some good deals to be had here, Where can you get Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran at 30% off? (just for a couple of days) The Reynolds Kids is still on special. I am closing it out so the books and the yarn are 50% off. I really like the line but it's still here. It's great especially with the pattern support.
Besides the Debbie Bliss there are other surprize markdowns but just for this week.
I have met with the Cascade rep and my order will be in on the 24th. Help me make room! I bought the top 30 colors!
