20% Off All Cashmere Yarns Sale!
Many of you have just completed a busy holiday season, furiously knitting for others. Your beautiful handmade gifts were well-received, and now it's time for YOU!
It is for precisely this reason that January is sweater month in the knitting world. You've had the instant gratification of creating all those quick cable knit hats and fingerless mitts, but now it's time to dive into a more complex project and reward yourself with a handsomely created sweater just for you at the end of it.
This week, we hope to help inspire your next work-in-progress with a CASHMERE SALE !!
All cashmere (or cashmere blend) yarns are 20% OFF from Friday Jan. 4th through Friday Jan. 11th
Some of the cashmere yarns we carry include...
String Yarns Classica, Dolcetto, Cashetta, Zurich and Oslo
Blue Sky Fibers Eco-Cashmere
Jade Sapphire 2-ply and 4-ply Mongolian Cashmere, Zageo 6-ply Cashmere
North Light Fibers Water Street
SweetGeorgia Cashluxe Fine
We are also proud to be featuring a String Yarns Sample Trunk Show.
See them in person, try them on...or just simply touch these garments while they're here! It is a completely different experience than seeing the patterns in photographs
(there isn't a photo that can do them justice!)
We have the collection - which featured four sweater and two cable knit hat designs, here through Jan. 18th, so don't miss out! String Yarns' exclusive patterns are free, but available only with purchase of their yarns.
The patterns shown above (clockwise; from top left)
Kim Positive / Negative Pullover by Joan Forgione // Berkshires Turtleneck Vest by Annabelle Speer // Savannah Cardigan by Lidia Karabinech // Fifth Avenue Pullover by Irina Poludnenko
We've fallen in love with the medley of textures and colors, and the subtle sparkle of Sesia Lola yarn by Tahki Stacy Charles.
Lola is a bulky weight wool blend yarn with a bit of alpaca and mohair, which give the yarn a luxurious halo. A random sprinkling of sequins add a touch of glitz!
We have knit up this fun hat and cowl set for you to sample at the store. The length of the hat can be adjusted from a beanie to a slouch fit, and each project requires roughly one and a half balls of Lola - which means three balls of yarn is enough for both!
The patterns shown above
Minimalist Hat and the Common Time Cowl - both by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas
Colorways (left to right) - Sea Foam, Natural, Deep Blue, Midnight Blue
More Malabrigo Rasta!
We have received another reorder of Malabrigo Rasta in a great assortment of colors. We haven't been able to keep this yarn on the shelves this winter due to the popularity of big chunky hats with big pom poms!
You may remember the Park Hat by Sarah Luse, or the Gaptastic Cowlby Jen Geigley? We featured them in our newsletter a few months back and both would look fantastic in the new colors.
Some other great pattern ideas for Rasta...
