introducing imperial stock ranch yarn…

Imperial Stock Ranch in Oregon makes beautiful fibers.  We just introduced their bulky pencil roving, a very special yarn that is great for knitting and felting.  Each "cake" has approx 250 yards and sells for $13.  Designer, Leigh Radford, created some great patterns for this yarn, such as the Ribbon Scarf in the photo above. We sell the individual patterns as well as the yarn.

The much anticipated new line of Spud & Chloe yarns and patterns from Blue Sky Alpacas have really taken off since they arrived at the shop last month.  There are 3 different types of yarn:  Outer, Sweater and Fine.  Each have a different composition of natural fibers and colors.  All are machine washable, which makes them perfect for so many projects.


Outer is a bulky weight yarn – 65% superwash wool and 35% organic cotton.  Each skein is 60 yards and costs $14.

Here are a couple of patterns in Outer: 



Sweater is a worsted weight yarn – 55% superwash wool and 45% organic cotton.  It comes in 160 yard skeins for $12.50.

Here are a couple of patterns in Sweater:



Fine is a fingering weight sock yarn – 80% superwash wool and 20% silk.  Each skein has 248 yards and costs $11.

Here are a couple of patterns in Fine:


The shop occasionally hosts special events, book signings, trunk shows, and sales. Private events can also be arranged at the shop by request.

Perhaps you'd like to have a birthday party centered around a knitting lesson. Or a baby shower during which everyone learns to knit a square for a baby blanket. Or a corporate networking event that features knitting instruction. Or a book club that encourages participants to knit while discussing the book. Nina: a well-knit shop is available for these and other special events.
