Malabrigo Arroyo, Shepherd’s Wool, and More!

It has been a busy Monday here! We moved into our brand spankin’ new space over the weekend and we’re still trying to find everything. But we pulled and packed orders today and have some great new things up on the website for you tonight.
  • Malabrigo Arroyo – A new yarn base from Malabrigo, this Superwash Sportweight is beautiful and perfect for sweaters, vests, scarves, hats and mitts. Note – we did not get our full order of this. We got all of the colors, but not the quantities that we had pre-ordered. They have promised to send us more in 2 weeks, and then more 2 weeks after that. We’ll keep it re-stocked as often as possible. (Shown here in Vaa).
  • Re-stocks in some colors of Malabrigo Sock, Worsted, and Rios.
  • Juliespins – A few more new colors of the Laceweight that we put up last week.
  • Woolen Mill Street – You all snapped up Christina’s roving when we put it up, and now we’re happy to have her beautiful colors in her fingering weight yarn. (Shown here in Tardis.)
  • Prism Lace – Re-stocks and new colors. (My favorite – Spruce. It’s teal-y. No surprise there.)
  • Sweet Georgia – Tough Love Sock and Superwash Sock in all kinds of beautiful colorways.
  • Stonehedge Fiber Mill – Shepherd’s Wool. I’ve been hearing talk about “the best sweater yarn” and this brand came up. Just as I was investigating it, I got a few requests from some of you to carry it – so we ordered it. And now I see what everyone is talking about. It’s beautiful. Great for felting, and great for sweaters and vests – handwashed, of course. Don’t accidently felt your work if you’re not meaning to. It comes in 52 colors. (Shown here in Michigan Blue.) I’m using the Sun Yellow for my next pair of mittens. Ever since I made mittens for Camp Loopy, I’ve been wanting a bright yellow pair, too. I’m making the new Ice Time Mittens by Debbie O’Neill.

This is our last Monday Update of the year (since we’re running into Christmas and New Year’s now), but we’ve already started collecting new yarn for the January 2nd Update, so we’ll be back at that again very soon!  In the meantime, enjoy tonight’s update and check in on the Loopy Webcam tomorrow to see part of our new space and to see if you can catch your order being packed up.

  1. Congrats on finishing the move. I too love Stonehedge yarn. I used it for making fiddlehead mittens. Definitely warm. Merry Christmas!

  2. Love Stonehedge! So lofty and squishy. The ‘Yarn Shack’ at the mill in East Jordan is like Christmas! They have great colors, too. Lots of different shades of the same colors. I have made quite a few things with yarn from there, including my favorite sweater. Glad you decided to give them a try! I always try to go there when I am up near Traverse.

  3. OMGosh, I am so excited about the inclusion of Stonehedge Fiber Mill’s Shepherd’s Wool!!!

    It’s really awesome! YAY

  4. What a phenomenal job you all have done with the move while still giving great service.. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing the new space and meeting the Elves in 2012.

  5. I will have to try the Stonehedge yarn. It looks right up my alley, especially if I make something to steek. I don’t want to use the sewing machine on my knitting again any time soon!

  6. OK – now I’m officially in trouble at home. I sort of said I wouldn’t buy any yarn in December and I just submitted my SECOND order! But how could I resist with so may yummy things to choose from! Thanks Sheri!

  7. Have a wonderful holiday Sheri! My Loopy treat to myself arrived yesterday – my first from Colorado! Looking forward to the yarny goodness in 2012!

  8. I love Stonehedge yarn. I am lucky enough to have a summer place right near East Jordan and have had a couple of tours of the mill. My husband was as fascinated as I was. They are lovely people and have wonderful yarns. I am so glad that you have added them.

  9. I have had the opportunity to use some of the Stonehenge yarn mill ends. My LYS has been carrying them for some time now and she just can’t keep them in stock we snatch them up so fast. They are each unique with a mixture of whatever happens to be handy. We have been having great fun making unique scarves, shawls & other items.

    I will look forward to trying some of their other yarns now that TLE is carrying them.
