Meet Bruce from Canon Hand Dyes, a wonderful 3-ply smooth base of superwash merino and yak. The yak in this yarn gives the colors this yarn an amazing softness and a rich depth of color! At 435 yards per skein, it is ideal for a scrumptiously cozy pair of socks or a super soft and luxurious next-to-skin accessory. Amy Lee designed a palette of 12 fall inspired jewel tones especially for this base to highlight the uniqueness of the special yarn.

New for this season, Malabrigo released a brand new yarn named Dos Tierras.
Dos Tierras means Two Lands, reflecting the sources of the two amazing fibers found in this ultra soft yarn. By spinning together plies of Fine Uruguayan Merino Wool with plies of Baby Alpaca from Peru, they have created a DK weight yarn that is as versatile as it is beautiful and combines the best of both fibers. When the good stitch definition and drape of this four ply yarn is combined with Malabrigo's amazing kettle dyed semi-solid and variegated colors you have the perfect palette to help show off your stitch work. This new yarn would knit up beautifully into accessories and handwash garments, next-to-skin wear, lace, cables, colorwork, and textured stitches.
Keep your eyes open for some August classes featuring this new beauty!
