Berroco's Ultra Wool

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!

We recently expanded our selection from local dyer Candy Skein.  In addition to Yummy Fingering, we now carry Tasty DK, an exclusively milled yarn for Candy Skein. It features 3 plies with an amazing high twist.  Tasty is superwash merino great for house socks, sweaters, hats, gloves, mittens and more! You won’t believe the spring and squish this yarn has, and how beautifully it shows off textured knitting.  The palette has been so well put together that the color combos pop off the wall!

sweetgeorgia Party of Five

May 11, 2018

Gradient and color sets are becoming ever more popular as designers are creating patterns specifically for them.  SweetGeorgia has created Party of Five which are color coordinated gradient sets.  We brought them in on the Tough Love Sock, which is a blend of Superwash Merino and Nylon, and each set contains 5 skeins of 105 yards.  They would knit up beautifully into Polygrade, which we have a class scheduled on 6/15, and Striped Cowl.  The possibilities really are endless as to what these color sets can be used for!
