We are still recovering from a very fun weekend at The Loopy Ewe Fall Fling, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t have time for preparing new yarn for all of you, too! And today’s update is a big one. Today we added in:
Whimsical Wood – Another new indie dyer for you! Samantha’s colorways and dyeing are not only incredibly beautiful (the Elves went nuts with these colors when they came in), but also creative and edgy. We did a little substituting of symbols in the titles for the website, but the yarn labels come through with their original “snarky twist” as she calls it! We have 24 colors for you today in her Pixie Toes Fingering Weight base, which comes with 463 yards per skein.
Hedgehog Fibres – A big update on sock yarn today. Dyed by Beata and her team in County Cork, Ireland, this beautiful batch is full of speckles, multi’s, and semi-solids. We have 75 color choices for you, for all of your sock, shawl, sweater, cowl and mitt knitting this fall and winter.
Dream in Color Classy – One of our favorites for worsted sweaters, Classy is a superwash merino with 250 yards per skein. If knitting sweaters is on your cold weather list, pick out some new colors for yourself! (And if you like your sweaters a little heavier, don’t forget about the new City base from Dream in Color that we introduced you to last week. We love that one, too.)
The Fibre Company Luma – New from Fibre Co this past spring, Luma is a classic DK weight yarn with a palette of soft neutrals and bright shades of pink, blue and green. If you’re looking for a base that is different than usual, this is it! Luma is 50% Wool, 25% Cotton, 15% Linen and 10% Silk. Beautiful for sweaters, vests, and shawls.
The Fibre Company Cumbria – Another unique yarn base from Fibre Co. This worsted weight yarn is 60% Fine Merino, 30% Brown Masham Wool and 10% Mohair. The natural brown-grey shade is over-dyed with color, creating deeply saturated colors with interesting depth. Wonderful for warm winter wear.
The Fibre Company Canopy Fingering – This 3-ply fingering weight yarn is 50% Baby Alpaca, 30% Merino Wool and 20% Viscose Bamboo. This unique blend of fibers is spun into a smooth yarn, then kettle dyed. Each fiber takes up the dye slightly differently, which leaves you with a semi-solid color that is full of depth and beauty.
The Fibre Company Road to China Light – So soft and luscious. This sport weight base is 65% Baby Alpaca, 15% Silk, 10% Camel and 10% Cashmere. It has a subtle sheen from the silk and warmth from the alpaca, camel and cashmere. Try is for a special sweater, a wam cowl and hat, or a toasty scarf or shawl.
Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop – Great for lighter weight sweaters, baby wear, and for those who are allergic to wool. This sport weight yarn is 50% Bamboo and 50% Cotton, and is easy care (machine wash and dry).
Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme – This one is my favorite worsted weight cotton. It’s 100% cotton and so soft and beautiful to work with. I used it for a summer sweater and a summer shawl, but it’s also a go-to for easy-care baby wear, lightweight afghans, soft facial cloths, and more.
Our last Yarn Update included: Dream in Color City (new heavy worsted base), Knerd String Sport Weight (new weight from our favorite Colorado indie dyer), Seven Sisters Arts Meridian Fingering (new indie dyer here at Loopy), Knerd String Fingering re-stock, Malabrigo Sock/Rios/Caracol re-stocks, The Uncommon Thread Posh Fingering/Merino DK/Everyday Singles/Lush Worsted re-stocks, and our Blue Moon Fiber Arts Exclusive September colorway, Midnight Mystery.
