Happy First Day of Spring!
While it may have felt decidedly winter-like over the weekend, this week is looking promising. And Spring is making an appearance in the shop this week, too, as new warmer-weather yarns are starting to arrive! Check out just a few of the new yarns:
|Landscape by Laines du Nord is a blend of organic cotton and soy fiber. Colorful, light, and breathable - this will be a great summer staple.|
|Cumulus and Cumulus Dappled by Juniper Moon Farm is 100% Israeli Mako Cotton that is super soft. Pair coordinated solid and variagated colors to make great snuggly soft wearables for the whole family.|
|Lumi is a cotton blend yarn from Berroco with just a touch of soft metallic shimmer that's just right from a soft, breezy summer project. (coming early this week)|
|We have two new members of the Berroco Vintage family. The first is Vintage Baby Handpaint, the same wonderful base as Vintage Baby, now available in five fun colorways. (coming early this week)|
|The other new Vintage member is Vintage Sock. This machine-washable blend is perfectly suited for both socks and a wide variety of garments for children and adults. And there is a great selection of colors! (coming early this week)|
