New In The Shop
We have a fresh batch of springy colors in Heritage Silk.  Heritage Silk is a fingering weight blend of 85% superwash merino and 15% silk.  The silk adds strength, so it can be used for socks, but it also works well for shawls and tops!
We also have a new infusion of Mechita colors.  Mechita is a fingering weight single ply superwash merino, similar to Tosh Merino Light.  It's popular for shawls, but would work well for sweaters, hats or scarves too.
We've also got a fresh batch of shawl pins.  These natural wood shawl pins complement every yarn and we have many shapes to suit every taste.  Shawl pins are the perfect thing to top off the gift of a handmade shawl.
We have a free pattern in the shop for Albertine, a lovely lace scarf
knit with one ball of Pittura, a fingering weight blend of 75% wool and 25% viscose.
We also have a lovely sample of the Inspira Cowl knit with 3 skeins of Amitola,
a fingering weight blend of 75% superwash wool and 25% silk.  
Inspira Cowl is a free pattern on Ravelry.
Yarn of the Month
Blue Sky Worsted Cotton is the yarn of the month for May and we're offering a whopping 20% off!!  Blue Sky cotton is like no other cotton you have ever felt, it's soft and lofty, aran weight, with 150 yards per 100g.  Knitters love this yarn for baby items, chemo caps, sweaters, and accessories for people allergic to wool.  Here are some patterns that look great for this yarn.  Organic Heirloom Baby Blanket, Girl's Sundress, Knit Chickens, Bunny Blanket Buddy, Super Natural Stripes (baby/toddler cardigan), Soft Cotton Dish Towels, and Summer Open Cardigan.
