We recently learned that there is a local fiber mill processing alpaca and other yarns. We are so pleased to have their yarn in our shop. Natural alpaca yarns come in colors ranging from off white through all shades of brown to black. The knitting and drape characteristics of the yarn also vary by the alpaca. Please come in a see for yourself. The Pioneer Fiber Mill offers after hours and group tours. Contact Steve@PioneerFiberMill.com
While at the Needlework show in Columbus we couldn't help but notice this yarn. It is available in the most vibrant colors. We purchased both sock weight and worsted weight yarn all are 100% superwash Merino.
These charming little colored balls are perfect for adding a little color to a project or simply to be combined in a mixture of colors. They are 150 meter, 50 gram balls in a dk-weight yarn labelled 100% Schurwollen merino extrafine superwash from Pategonia. This is a Skacel yarn.
These are darling little balls of yarn joy
Trendsetter Yarns "Smoothies"
These balls of yarn are 880 yards, 200 grams knitting 5.5 sts per inch on size 6 needles. One ball yields multiple transitional shades of yarn and is sufficient to complete a shawl. A model of this shawl is available at the shop. This is Trendsetter's most popular new yarn.
A few of the projects completed in the last few months are pictured below.
You will amaze yourself. You can do this too.
This knitted hat was designed by Berrocco
Summer Silk from Berrocco is made from 45% silk, 43% Cotton and 12% Nylon, this hat is perfect for the knitter that doesn't like to use wool. A size 7 needle is recommended. The best part of this hat is the ease of making the pattern. The pattern repeats are short and are easy to keep track of. It is a great pattern for someone who is just getting used to graphs.
This hat is in the shop and was made from a super soft Prism wool. A number of people tried it on to see how it looked and it looked great. You can add pom poms to the ends if you like. This might be a good idea for a gift for someone who enjoys skiing or lives in the North.
This hat looks great on everyone.
