DYEING SOCK YARN
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 .

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