Yarns by Design now has a facebook page. "Like us" and be the first to know when something new comes in! I'll also post announcements about events we're hosting or vending at, so you can plan your fiber show travels. And when the weather gets messy, I try to post any changes to shop hours on Facebook.

Check Out What's New
Mrs. Crosby is sending her yarns to Yarns by Design! We'll have all the fibers in a selection of tonal and variegated colorways. They'll be here after we get done with inventory and then featured in our booth at Stitches Midwest (along with model garments to inspire you). 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 will be here at the end of the July and at Stitches Midwest.  
 
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.
