New Yarns!

Hey! I started writing this post a week ago, but then I got the plague and had to sleep 20 hours/day. I’m not completely over it, but I’m a lot better than I was, so let’s see if I can finish it today!

I’ve been wanting to introduce some new yarns for a while now, and now that the Local Wool Project Yarn is almost gone (seriously, there’s hardly any left. If you want some, grab it now) there’s some space freed up.

So we are introducing not one but TWO new base yarns! Both are 100% US-grown merino, and both are millspun here in the US.

The first is a fingering weight yarn, Merino Mono. It’s a superwash merino singles. I am in love with it.

I may want to marry it and have its babies. I’m working on a scarf pattern with it.

The second is a DK weight yarn, DK Merino. It is NOT superwash. It IS delightfully squooshy, and I’m looking forward to making a sweater with it.

Ok, several sweaters actually.

Speaking of freeing up space, did you miss my Fiberganza sale and wish you could have come? Or did you come but wish you would have bought that bag of red alpaca? Well, we sold more than half of what we had out, but that means there’s still an incredible amount left. I’m doing an auction on Facebook, listing several things every day, and wow, there’s a lot of stuff. As of this writing, I’ve got the first 57 lots up. I might be about 20% through…

The auction ends Sunday, April 5 at 11:45pm. And yes, there’s red alpaca.
