Check Out What's New
We now have yarn and fiber from Sweet Georgia Yarns. Try Tough Love Sock, Trinity Worsted, Silk Fog or Merino 6 Superwash for your next knitting project. For spinners, we have Superwash BFL, BFL and Silk, Panda (a bamboo/merino blend), and Polworth and Silk. Everything comes in the bright, vibrant colors of Sweet Georgia Yarns. They really light up the shop!
New from Shibui is Maai - a DK wieght alpaca/merino blend in a chainette construction. It is incredibly soft and springy.
Mrs. Crosby is here! We have all the fibers in a selection of tonal and variegated colorways. Meet Mrs. Crosby at her website or on Facebook. My favorite Mrs. Crosby quote is "A great yarn is like a great man. A little work creates something wonderful you'll want to have around for years."
Extra! is a new alpaca/merino blend from Blue Sky Alpaca. It's wonderful to knit with and comfy to wear. Great for accessories - it only takes one skein to make a hat, fingerless mitts, or cowl. There's a beautiful wrap on display that takes two skeins. Perfect for fall knitting projects and holiday gifts.
New colors from Madeline Tosh are here, including the painterly colorways.
Heritage, from Briggs and Little, is a durable, classic wool made in Canada from Canadian wool. It has a rustic look and feel that is perfect for sweaters, boot socks, and outerwear. It comes in 44 colors. We also have Atlantic, a chunky version of Heritage. For a softer hand, we have Soft N Lite, a soft spun, fingering weight wool. It comes in six great hand-dyed colors.
Michelle Hunter's new book, "Building in Color" is in stock. We also have the Simplicity yarn that she uses in her samples. It's a very soft, machine washable DK yarn.
