I feel like Siskel and Ebbert!! We're starting a YARN REVIEW page because since we have so many yarns in our shop, it's good for all our stitchers to get an honest opinion (yes, an honest opinion) of our yarns!!
Some new yarns that have arrived:
FEZA YARNS - Tokyo - this is an acrylic novelty yarn that truly is unusual. The reason I say "unusual" is because when it's knitted up, it's nothing I've seen before! I saw a shop owner wearing a shawl at our convention. I asked her about the yarn and asked her if she had knitted this up with a pattern since there were sections of the shawl that clustered into a flower shape. "No" she said, "that's the way the yarn knits up."
So, if you're looking for an easy, elegant, unusual shawl, this yarn is for you. It takes 4 balls (170 yds/ball) and size 13 needle to create this masterpiece! Cast on 66 stitches and knit every row until desired length. Add fringe, cause ya gonna want it!!! When the order is complete, we will have 6 colors in stock.
BERROCO YARNS - Vintage DK - if you loved Vintage worsted, an acrylic, wool, nylon mix, then you'll fall in love with it's younger sibling VINTAGE DK. It has the same properties, just thinner and has 288 yards to the skein. Berroco strikes again with one heck of a great yarn!! We have 9 colors in stock.
BERROCO YARNS - Ultra Alpaca Fine - well, if you know me, you'll know that Alpaca is not my choice of yarns. I LOVE merino wool. My opinion was changed with an alpaca that we are now carrying (from another company). The Ultra Alpaca Fine is a Peruvian wool, fuper fine alpaca and nylon mix and it has 433 yards so shawl making is it's calling!!! We have 5 colors in stock.
LORNA'S LACES - Pearl - this is a "chic" yarn - silk/bamboo combination and oh, what a combination it is!! Yes, it is a pricy yarn, but well worth it and has 220 yards to the skein - worsted weight. We all love FREE patterns and there's one called CREAM OF SPINACH (yeah, Kari, I got it right!). Wear this at the office, the theatre or any other event, and you will be stopped because the marriage of the pattern and the yarn is phenomenal!
