The Monday Yarn Update is ready for you, and you’ll find lots of fun things listed. We’ve just added in:
Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight – This 100% Superwash Merino fingering weight yarn comes with 405 yards to the skein in all of the eye-popping colors that Tina and her team like to dye up! This is the first round of our Lightweight order, so watch for more again soon. (Check out the new sprinkle versions – Bubble Guppies, Heartache to Heartache, and Love is a Battlefield!) Pattern Ideas: Aquaphobia Socks, Simple Things, and Willow Cowl.
Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton – A beautiful 100% organic cotton worsted weight yarn that comes with 150 yards to the skein. You’ll find this great for spring and summer wear, baby items, and winter accessories for those who are allergic to wool. Pattern Ideas: Eyelet Cardigan, Shale Baby Blanket, and Foliage.
Blue Sky Alpacas Extra – A luxe mix of Baby Alpaca and Fine Merino in an Aran weight. This soft and wonderful yarn comes with 218 yards to the skein and is great for warm sweaters and winter accessories. Pattern Ideas: Two Harbors Poncho, Tokyo Tower Bandana, and Tatras Fingerless Mitts.
Blue Sky Alpacas Alpaca Silk – This soft blend is 50% Alpaca and 50% Silk in a DK weight. Terrific for shawls, stoles, scarves, hats, gloves, mittens and more. Pattern Ideas: Yummy Mummy Wristwarmers, Spiral Cowl, and 3 Color Cashmere Cowl.
Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky – A Super Bulky weight yarn that is 50% Alpaca and 50% Wool. This works up quickly into cowls, hats, mittens and scarves and comes in 18 colors. Pattern Ideas: Bobbi Bear, Breckenridge Cowl, and Frosty Cowl.
Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino – Baby Suri Alpaca and Fine Merino Wool combine to create a yarn that’s as delectable as cashmere and as lustrous as silk. This single-ply DK weight shows off cables and textured stitches well, and comes 164 yards to the skein. Pattern Ideas: Bianca Wrap, Amazing Seed Stitch Wrap, and Dream Scarf.
Blue Sky Alpacas Metalico – A luxury yarn that is 50% Baby Alpaca and 50% Mulberry Silk, making it soft and wonderful. The undyed shimmering palette ranges from gelaming whites to silvery grays and is wonderful for shawls, cowls and scarves. I used five colors to make up the Another Way scarf and it is one of my favorites. Pattern Ideas: Frances Wrap, Zelda Wrap, and Ombre Infinity.
The Loopy Ewe Loopy Cakes – We always have fun making up Loopy Cake Sets, and we know you have fun buying them! Each set contains 6 mini skeins with 100+ yards in each skein for a total of 600+ yards in the set. Great for colorwork, plus shawls, scarves and hats that move from one pretty color to the next. This time around, you’ll find Jelly Beans, Easter Bonnet, Elsa, Crayons and Vibrant. Pattern Ideas: Mini Mania Scarf, Might Mini, and Mad Mini Wrap.
Loopy’s Button Tote – We have been collecting fun buttons from different events (Camp Loopy, Loopy Academy, Loopy Rewards, etc) and have had nowhere to put them. So we ordered Loopy on a heavy duty, zippered canvas tote (so your colorful pins show up well), and we’re sharing out button collections that way! Of course you can also use the tote as-is, because Loopy always looks cute on things. But check out how fun it is to put the smaller 1″ buttons in place of his fleece curls.
We’ve also added more yarn to our Last Call Yarn section. Both Biscotte & Cie and Colinette have stopped wholesaling their yarn, so we won’t be carrying them any longer. I also added Shibui Pebble and Cima to Last Call, as well as Rowan Fine Lace and Swans Island. We’re saying goodbye to some of these yarns because we have several new lines that are coming in over the next few months, some are indie-dyed lines and some are bigger yarn company lines. We’re so excited about them and can’t wait to share them with you as they arrive!
Our last Yarn Update included: Bungalow 360 Bags, HiyaHiya Crochet Hooks, Malabrigo Nube, Malabrigo Rasta, Malabrigo Rios, Spud and Chloe Outer, Fine and Sweater, Stonehedge Fiber Mill, and HiyaHiya needle re-stocks.
March Monthly Mixer – It’s time for another Monthly Mixer Challenge! This month, we’re celebrating March and Mars and challenging you to knit, crochet or sew with the letter M in mind. Pick a color or collection that begins with M, or pick a pattern that begins with M, or make something that begins with M. (I’m going to make another Match and Move our of two colors of Wollmeise. I get credit for Double M’s there!) Share your ideas below or on our Monthly Mixer page on Ravelry!
