What's new this week

What's New This Week

We are still adding many new yarns and other fun things every single day! This week we will be adding a new shipment of Madelinetosh yarn. Madelinetosh is a fairly new company based out of Texas. She handpaints all of her yarns and she also makes the luxury spinning batts you have seen on our site. We have been getting great reviews on the hand blended spinning batts and more are going to be added soon! Her yarns are absolutely beautiful and the fiber itself is so soft!! So if you are a handpainted sock yarn lover, this is your week! Over half of the yarns sold within the first hour of posting, but there are some beautiful ones left and more in the future.

We also got a new shipment in from Fleece Artist and HandMaiden. There are many new colors of Sea Silk Yarn, Sea Wool yarn and Merino Sock Yarn! All three are great for lace work, shawls, summer tops and the sea wool and merino have sock patterns on the labels. There are several new colors of our favorite kits and some new kits too. Look at this gorgeous "Lady of the Lake" sweater kit and the beautiful huge skein that makes it!! This is in olive green, the color shown in the pattern photo:

All the new yarn and kit colors will be added by the end of today Tuesday.! There are new colors for all of the yarns and kits we carry. More yarns and kits are coming soon! Make sure to click on "more info" on most of the listings as we added some photos of the Fleece Artist and Hand Maiden skeins so you can see what they are like! Nothing is as exciting as opening up a box from these companies. The yarns are too gorgeous for words!! The photographs don't capture their beauty. Look at these three HUGE HUGE skeins of yarn that are used for the Soft Wavy Wrap. They are simply beautiful!! This kit can also be used for a pattern called the Alpaca Garter Stitch Jacket which we are providing free with each soft wavy wrap kit. Take a look at three of these gorgeous skeins in spring, glacier and pale pink. We are placing a new order with Fleece Artist and Hand Maiden this week. Would you like a special order? We can get any kit or yarn on their website for you in any color, so please let us know! We will be adding on several more kits and yarns in our next order!

One of our wonderful customers, Leslie, sent in some photos of her beautiful Fleece Artist Celtic Vest Kit that she made in the color madder. We just added quite a few new colors in size M/L and Small. This vest kit can also be ordered in an XL by the way. Aren't these photos great. This is not Leslie by the way, but her friend, who is a wonderful model! Thanks Leslie and friend!

We also have a new shipment of beautiful fiber jewelry from Perl Grey Studios. Perl Grey is Fleece Artist's "sister" company in Nova Scotia. This is a family run business that has been in the pewter business for 5 generations! They also develop knit kits with the Fleece Artist yarns. In this shipment we added some new "buttonsticks" which are wonderful as shawl pins or on any sweater. We also have more of the very popular "ringsticks" and some adorable new black sheep earrings!! Everything new will be listed this week. Take a peek at a few items here, my favorite black sheep earrings and a gorgeous ring stick made of pewter in the shape of a leaf. Make sure to check out all of the new items on our "What's New Page"

Also from Fleece Artist, we have new spinning fibers in gorgeous colors in both merino and silk and blue faced leicester so spinners enjoy! These should be posted on Wednesday!

Coming soon!

Coming in July.. Watch for Jo Sharp yarns and patternbooks to finally be released in July! The Fall JO Sharp book and yarns should be here by August. Also our beautiful new Lanas Puras Clarissa is here and it is beautiful and really different! It is a handpainted 50% cotton and 50% wool yarn in a heavy DK weight. It has some texture to it and the dyeing gives it a tweed effect. We can't wait to show you and to have our designers get to work with it! We have some other great surprises in store for you as well.......
