We have new Hedgehog Fibres in the shop. But first, a little Newsletter housekeeping! Did you know we have three different email lists? You can subscribe and unsubscribe from any of them on your Loopy account page, after you log in. It’s in the column on the right hand side under the Search Box, called “Subscriptions”.
We have three email newsletters:
1. Yarn Shop Updates (that’s the one you’re reading right now. Sent out any Monday that we are putting up yarn, which we do most Mondays.) We’ll tell you what went up that day, and what went up the week before. We usually link to any blog posts or programs we’ve recently talked about, too.
2. Loopy News. Sent out every two to three weeks with product updates, program updates, specials, coming soon news, and sometimes links to things that made me smile. Especially in 2020.
3. Loopy Locals. Sent out whenever we have special in-store events, classes, changes in our hours, and happenings for our local customers. Since we haven’t had in-store classes, Knit Nights, or Stitching Afternoons since March, this newsletter has been pretty quiet this year.
We hope you’re subsribing to the ones that interest you most!
Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn
We ordered this Hedgehog four months ago, and are so happy that it has finally arrived from Ireland! I’d like to set up a chair in the middle of the Hedgehog aisle and just stare at it all for inspiration. So many beauties – click here to shop.
Here is an Ananke that I knit up out of one of the Hedgehog Fibres colors a few years ago. If you’re knitting holiday gifts this year, that’s a great pattern that knits up pretty quickly! The pattern is beautiful in any fingering weight yarn.
We also added in:
We’ve also re-stocked all of our Cascade – Heritage Wave, Heritage Sock, Heritage Silk, 220, 220 Superwash, Ultra Pima, Superwash Aran, Superwash Sport, and Aegean Tweed (including 5 new colors – see below).
We have four fun new stitchmarker sets from Pretty Warm Designs and I’m just going to say that all of us here at Loopy are having a hard time picking. I feel like I need the cats (one of them looks like my Ollie), but then the robots are SO cute. And the owls have sparkly eyes! And the honeybees have such cute charms in the set. See? Hard time deciding. My friend Susan says, “Why choose? Get them all!” Even though she was talking about dessert at the time, I think the same sentiment can be applied to stitchmarkers, right? Anyway, good luck deciding. You just can’t go wrong with any of them. Click here to shop.
And finally, we had a backorder arrive from Universal in Bamboo Pop, so if you’ve been waiting on Black or Cream (or a few other colors), it’s back in stock.
Our last Yarn Update included:
Our Dream in Color Monthly Exclusive in Smooshy Cashmere and City called The Nights Grow Longer, Dream in Color’s September Pop-up Skein, Jamieson & Smith’s 2 Ply Jumper, and Wollmeise Nobody’s Perfect Pure (sold out) and Lace (9 colors left).

If you completed two months, you would have received the pattern and you’ll be receiving the Accessory Pack in your next Loopy order. If you completed all three months, you receive the emailed pattern, plus you will receive an accessory set and a skein of Wollmeise Pure, Nobody’s Perfect in your next order!
We have your account tagged if we owe you a Camp Reward, so no need to leave us that note in your order.
