Black Friday Week (Plus New Yarn!)

We are watching the snow fall outside and expecting 14-20″ from now until sometime tomorrow (Tuesday). We have decided to close the shop tomorrow, Tuesday (only the second time we’ve ever done that), because they are saying if you have to travel (and just don’t), then take a shovel with you. Sounds like a good time to stay home and knit by the fire! (And if the weather forecast is wrong – well, we’ll still be sitting and knitting by the fire, I guess.)

So we won’t be shipping orders tomorrow, or here to answer the phone. But we’ll be back here on Wednesday and will get things shipping then!

Here’s what we have going on in the shop this week:

Black Friday Week Special

We were able to get lots and lots of skeins of Wollmeise Pure from Germany that are slightly different. All of these colorways are ones they regularly offer, but the skeins we have might have more or less of one color or the other compared to the “regular” colorway. Honestly, I have gotten some of my most beautiful skeins from batches like this. I love the unique ones! All skeins are semi-solids or multi-colors. 575 yards per skein, fingering weight, 100% Superwash Merino.

We are offering these special skeins for just $25 per skein as a Holiday Special. (We sell regular Wollmeise Pure for $37 per skein.) Choose from Reds, Oranges, Purples, Blues, Greens, Browns, Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter groupings. We’ll pick a gorgeous skein for you.

Wollmeise Specials The Loopy Ewe

New from MalabrigoDos Tierras – this DK weight yarn is 50% Superwash Merino and 50% Baby Alpaca, with 210 yards per skein. We only have 5 skeins of each color because I ordered the wrong amount. Aack! We will get more. 🙂 Click on the up-close pics to see the unique base.

Also re-stocked from MalabrigoRios, Sock, Arroyo, Susurro, and Rasta.

Appalachian Baby – not just for baby knitting! This organic cotton is sport weight, and comes with 194 yards per ball (already wound for you). They have added in some new colors. We have Baby Doe, Blue, Huckleberry Red, Indigo, Pink, Silver, Sky Blue and Natural. We also added in a few more of the Appalachian Baby kits.

  1. My husband is headed there in the next couple days. Maybe I can talk him into buying me some yarn. 😉 I loved your store when I was there in May.
