New for this fall, we have Mirasol Yarns. The Mirasol Project supports local communities in Peru through the sales of the Mirasol Yarn Collection, which includes yarn made from the animals tended by these communities for generations in the Peruvian highlands. By purchasing it you are supporting the shepherds and their families ensuring the continuation of this tradition. A portion of every purchase goes directly to the funding of a centre in the remote area of Munani in the
region of Puno.
Mirasol comes in four blends – Miski, an aran weight super-soft and warm 100% baby llama yarn; Hacho, a DK weight 100% wool hand painted yarn; Sulka, a chunky weight wool, alpaca and silk blend; and Cotanani, a DK weight cotton/merino blend. We have a pattern book full of gorgeous patterns by Jane Ellison to go with it as well!
Filatura Di Crosa - Superior
This yarn is as light as a cloud, and just as soft! A 70% Cashmere, 30% Silk blend, Superior is warm and beautiful! If that’s not enough, each 25 gram ball contains 328 yarns, meaning that with one ball you have enough yarn to knit a fantastic scarf! Knit up a few, and give them as gifts this Christmas! We currently have Superior in three colours, a pale pink, a beautiful choclate brown, and a cream.
Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo
The newest addition to the Snuggly baby line, Baby Bamboo is an 80% bamboo 20% wool DK weight yarn. It’s machine washable, and comes in a bunch of colours perfect for a baby garment! Bamboo is an ideal yarn for baby garments; it’s environmentally sustainable; it wicks moisture away from the skin; and it’s also antibacterial, so it helps to control odours! We also have a new pattern book from Sirdar full of patterns for this great new yarn.
Araucania Ranco Sock Yarn
This new yarn from Araucania is hand dyed in Chile. There are two types; Ranco Solid, which is a subtly verigated yarn, and Ranco Multi which is more contrasty, and colourful. Both contain 75% wool, and 25% Polyamide, which will keep your hand knit socks strong, in the wash and on your feet! Just one ball is enough to knit a pair of socks.
