The Neighborhood Fiber Co Capital Luxury Worsted has finally arrived. Those of you who were in the fibre girl club last year had the first crack at this. It is now in the shop! Each hank is 200 yards of 80% wool, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon. It regularly retails for $25 but will be 10% off today and tomorrow (Monday) because it is not yet unpacked and on our shelves. We just got the boxes open and the yarn counted and there is already a feeding frenzy going on!
Folks can’t resist the gorgeous color and wonderful feel of the stuff. Katie found this amazing pattern and showed it to me this weekend. It would be incredible in this yarn! Perhaps a knitalong?
