Fall Yarn Fantasies

Almost every day more new fall yarn arrives at the store. Our storage room is completely packed with the boxes containing the beautiful fibres. Beth has even been coming into the store on her week off to try to arrange some of it on the shelves. Here is a selection of a few of the first arrivals.

This is "Soy Soft" from Dye-Version, a hand painted fingering weight yarn made from 100% soybean.
Also from Dye-Version is this 100% Bamboo fingering weight yarn. The lustre and colours need to be seen - I just keep wanting to hold the skeins and dream.......

We have added another 20 colours to our wall of Cascade 220 yarn. Many of the additions are in the "Heathers" with such richness in the tones.

Gabriela knit this lacy top from "Australian Merino Lame". The yarn has a metallic thread running through it that accents the festive colours. It will be perfect for the holiday celebrations (I'm referring to Christmas - many of our knitters have started their gift knitting already).

We estimate that in about a week we'll have the store transformed into a showcase for our new yarn lines. I'll keep the camera flashing - but if you have the chance, these yarns need to be seen and held to be fully appreciated. Let the visions of fall knitting begin!
