Greetings from space! Here’s what’s happened this week.
Simply put, so many great things have landed in the shop over the last few days.
We are thrilled to have a brand new yarn from Freia! We are one of the first shops to offer the new Super Bulky. It’s a single ply merino wool in 87 yard cakes, dyed in the gorgeous ombre colorways that we know and love. Each cake costs $34. Check out project ideas over on Pinterest. In addition to the new base, we’ve also restocked on three other bases: Sock Petites (perfect for the Knockout Round Shawl), Merino/Silk Fingering and Merino/Silk Worsted. Come dream up amazing gradient projects!
We’ve also just shelved a fresh batch of Gynx Strong Sport. This time out we’ve got a mix of self striping and multis, perfect for sport weight socks. Each skein is 328 yards of 80% superwash Merino and 20% nylon. Self striping colorways cost $30 per skein, while multis are $23 a piece.
We are fully restocked on the newest yarn from Hazel Knits – Cadence. A shop favorite, each skein is 200 yards of superwash Merino in a 3 ply worsted weight, custom milled for Hazel Knits. Enjoy this yarn at $22 per skein.
We’ve got a bunch of great events on the horizon. Our next workshops with seats available come courtesy of Olga Buraya-Kefelian.
