New Dream In Color Everlasting!

Posted by Kristine Vejar on January 16, 2012 2 Comments

We just received a new shipment of Dream In Color Everlasting!

Stats: 12-ply DK yarn, 100% superwash Australian merino wool, spun and hand dyed in the United States.  

 

 

Here's why we stock this yarn: 12-ply, durability, pattern definition, glazed colors, USA. To elaborate, the many plies give this yarn lots of durability and a very low tendency to pill. It shows patterns and stitches nicely. The colors run from deep, light-consuming purples to brilliant, inspiring reds to inviting, oceany blues. Last but not least, it is spun and dyed in the United States, meaning you are supporting fairer wages and working conditions, as well as reducing transportation costs. 

If you have browsed the shop recently, you may have seen a sample of the Garter Yoke Baby Cardi that was knit up in Dream In Color Everlasting. We offer a class starting in March that teaches you the basics of sweater construction in a pint-sized version, and this yarn would be perfect for it.

 Come take a look!

After a year of anticipation, we just received Malabrigo's newest base yarn, Arroyo, 100% superwash merino, sport weight. I love this weight of yarn, perfect for a layering piece here in the Bay Area. 

 


Hedgehogs! Foxes! We also received a shipment of fabric designed by Lizzy House. I love her graphic sensibility and touch of whimsy.
