Greetings from space! Here’s what’s been happening around the shop!
Great things are afoot at the shop. We welcomed Blue Sky Alpaca’s Royal Petite Babies. These kits are beyond adorable and come with everything you need to make your baby animal (minus the knitting needles). Read more about them on the blog!
We’re also thrilled to have a new offering from Soak – Flatter! This spray is sort of like leave-in conditioner for your knitwear. Learn more about it here!
Habu is restocked!! Check out the bamboo and stainless steel selection, which we love for the Moonrise Shawlpattern free on our site by Olga!
We also have a great restock of colors in Tsumugi Silk, which is super popular for the Marly Scarf, also free on our site!
We still have lots of great colorways left from this weekend’s massive Miss Babs shipment. This time out we received Tarte 437, a sturdy fingering weight yarn with Tencel and Nylon – perfect for socks; Kilimanjaro 437, a shorter skein of the monster Kilimanjaro which is a blend of BFL and Nylon; Yowza – Whatta Skein; and Yummy 2-ply. Read more here!
Love + Leche (formerly Milk + Honey) bars are back in stock with new and returning scents. The company uses local and organic calendula flowers, local goats milk and local beeswax and honey. The yarnistas swear by these for keeping dry hands at bay when you handle fibers all day.
Beaded stitch markers are back and filling up our vintage ice cube trays. Grab all one color or an assortment, $6 for 5 markers.
