New Yarn

Wow. There are so many amazing yarns and fibers in the market place. I had a really hard time narrowing down the list. I've decided not to carry super wash merino worsted and bulky. I'm going with more luxe yarns in those weights. Let's just get to what I am carrying! I copy and pasted so the spacing might be a bit off but have a look:

amount of silk shimmer in the yarn for lace

And the fiber!! When it's possible I'm doing 4 ounce skeins instead of 100 grams. I'm also doing 4 ounces of fiber or 2 ounces instead of grams. More yarn and fiber for your buck! So that was super wordy, I hope you survived. Let me know if you have any questions about the new yarns. I'm going to start placing orders for it next week!


In getting ready for all the new pretty I'm having a sale in my etsy shop. There's a sale section and I've been adding lots of yarn to the shop in general. Thank you for your support!

A little summer fun- a toasted marshmallow at Oma's!
