Above is the last of the cottons we will be getting for a while. It's called Cotton Twist from Berroco. Its a gorgeous cotton rayon mix.
Below is another new to the store Berroco yarn called Comfort. Its a poly/acrylic mix but you would never guess - it's sooo soft. It's great for home dec or baby projects and comes in a worsted and DK weight.
Some of you are already familiar with Berroco's Plush - we got in additional colors for your current baby project.
Lastly we received a big order of Blue Sky Alpaca. We have new colors of the Dyed Cotton, the Melange and the Sport Weight Alpaca. Start thinking of a fall project for these beauties.

To carry us through the rest of the summer (ha-ha), we received Soya Cotton by Sublime and Silkience by Ella Rae. These both feel sooo soft and the colors are fun. The pattern books for these yarns arrived too.
Calibri is a fun scarf/shawl yarn. It makes its own lacey design as you knit.
Debbie Bliss will be a new yarn manufacturer for the store and we have started getting her yarn. Alpaca Silk melts in your hands. Cashmerino Astrakhan is a merino, cashmere blend with a little texture. This yarn is soon to be phased out but we were lucky to get some fun colors. The yarn books for this yarn are also trickling in so come pick a project for the fall.

Seven boxes of yarn arrived today! We are getting ready for fall with lots of new yarn, colors and textures. We received 62 colors of Ella Rae, a worsted weight wool yarn. The paints and tweeds of this yarn are due at the end of the month.
Noro has also arrived. We have 8 new colors of Kuyeron and 5 new colors of Silk Garden. We also received Silk Garden sock yarn in 8 colors and Kuyeron sock yarn in 8 colors. They look awesome. You get about 3 socks from each sock, so 2 skeins is 6 pair - What a deal.
Yarns to finish the summer also arrived. There is a soy cotton in 5 colors, a cotton silk in 5 colors, a new alpaca silk and a merino silk.
Of course we had to have all the pattern books that go with the new yarn.
Check out this new scarf/shawl yarn. I couldn't wait to try it. Come in and see all the goodies. Now to buy additional displays for all this fluff.
