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!
