Local Indie Dyer Trunk Show 10/27, Fade Kits from Yarn Catcher + New Yarns!!
New Luxury Yarns from Tahki Stacy Charles
We've received lots of new yarns from Tahki / Stacy Charles Fine Yarn, and we'll be sharing them with you throughout the coming weeks (there's simply too much for one newsletter!)
Luccicais a worsted weight merino wool with a subtle sparkly thread of silver metallic spun throughout. We love how this yarn adds a touch of bling to any project.
We also love the pattern bundle that (our very own) Pam designed for Tahki / Stacy Charles - the Parsons Hat & Cowl. This richly cabled hat and cowl are knit with Luccica. The hat is knit with the yarn held double for thick and cushy warmth. The cowl is knit flat and seamed, and the cable patterns throughout are easy to follow. We have samples in the store, knit by Pam herself, for you to try on!
Perlage Yarnis a truly unique yarn - a worsted weight blend of virgin merino wool, with a cotton thread of little polypropylene pearls throughout! We're having lots of fun coming up with ideas for these little 25 gram bundles...and so are our customers. It's a great yarn for accent stripes, borders / trims, or knit alone for a classy rock n' roll vibe.
This new yarn is amazing! Bio Merino Nuageis a heavenly soft organic virgin merino wool - dyed in earthy, heathered shades we can't stop gazing at. Each colorway has so much depth, and the palette is perfect for both men's and women's knits. It's a beautifully smooth, plied worsted weight yarn, that would be fantastic in textured knits, or cables.
We had Jacquelyn from Yarn Catcherat Westport Yarns a few weeks back for the Yarn Crawl. Everything she brought to the store - from her hand-dyed yarns to her hand-knit samples, were big hits. Most popular of all was her absolutely gorgeous Comfort Fade Cardiknit in her own Yarn Catcher yarns. Our customers (and staff!) fell in love with the relaxed, yet very flattering fit..and Jacquelyn’s stunning fade colors. The cardigan is knit using four colors, fading one into the next, as you knit.
We are thrilled to announce that Jacquelyn will be dyeing up two fade kits, available by special order only, for our customers! Now available to order - the Original Fade Kit (charcoal/blues; pictured above) and the Dead Roses Fade Kit (brown/pinks; pictured below). The S/M Kit contains 7 skeins for $190.00, and the L/XL Kit contains 9 skeins for $220.00 Stop in or call the store to place your order! (203) 454.4300
