YARNS

One of my favorite finds this season is WoolAddicts from Lang Yarns.  There are 5 new yarns in this collection --
Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Love in all different weights -- lots of merino,  alpaca and alpaca blends and 43
patterns!  I can't show them all here, so you will have to come in and see for yourself or find it on my website.


Aero , from Berroco is a new self-striping alpaca/wool blend at 3 stitches/inch. Quickly knit up a scarf, hat or
sweater. Ultra Alpaca now comes in natural, undyed colors.

Kelbourne Woolens has Andorra, a wool/mohair sportweight blend, that was recently featured on the cover of Vogue
in a sweater by Norah Gaughan

From Blue Sky Fibers we have Eco-Cashmere, 100% cashmere in a DK weight at 164 yards.  Here's a great pattern
that uses this yarn .

       Katia Lagom


Lagom, from Katia is a superfine merino/cotton blend aran weight that is machine washable, so it's great for babies
too!     
                                            

Ito by Noro is a new self-striping yarn in a cake with 437 yards.  Here it  is featured on the cover of Noro Magazine
Issue 13 -- which will be in stock very soon.
 

Lots of new yarns coming in next newsletter!
