October KAL

October 05, 2018

braid-cowl-october-kal

It's hard to believe it's October.  With the return of rain and leaves changing colors, it officially feels like Autumn!  To honor the coziness of this season, we picked a project that features very cozy baby alpaca.  Braid by Mary-Ann Lammers is a very clever construction.  Straightforward to knit, it has a pop of style and intrigue.  We chose Cascade's Eco Alpaca for its luxuriousness and drape.  It is a worsted weight 100% Undyed Baby Alpaca, so it's a very natural palette that includes marled colorways as well.

Our KALs are Friday 3-6pm and Sunday 2:30-5pm.

Berroco's Ultra Wool worsted and DK

June 11, 2018

Berroco's new workhorse yarns are a hit!

Berroco introduced their first 100% wools yarns last year along with a portfolio of patterns for the worsted weight.  Ultra Wool DK is lighter version of the well-loved, worsted weight Ultra Wool – a smooth and sturdy superwash wool, one of the few that suggests “tumble dry low” rather than “lay flat to dry.” That makes it a truly easy-care yarn, perfect for baby and children’s garments, blankets, and everyday accessories.

Each weight comes in 100 gram ball.  The worsted is 219 yards and the DK 292 yards, already wound into a center-pull skein, no less. The center-pull end is neatly tucked into the label, so you don’t have to reach into the depths of the skein to fumble for it, one of the pleasing features of Ultra Wool in both worsted and DK weight.

Look for Ultra Wool DK in our DK weight section and Ultra Wool in the worsted section, both in a full range of colors!
