our favorite time of year!

Posted on: October 7th, 2019 by nina chicago

It’s our favorite time of year because new and exciting things are being delivered nearly every day! It is so hard to contain our excitement when we find new vendors we really want to work with and see the new things our current vendors come up with. Here are the details on the latest and greatest in our shop:

Let’s start with a new favorite, Northern Bee Studio.

Hilary is especially drawn to this independent dyer who is from the north woods of Wisconsin, where her family has vacationed for over 40 years. That aside, these yarns are a real treat. We decided to start with the Yak Sock and Super Soft DK, though it was really hard to narrow it down to those two lines. It’s always nice to support another small midwest company and you simply have to come in and see these amazing yarns that are created just one state away.

We are also head over heels for our new project bags from Wuthering Sheep.

These adorable roly-poly bird bags are available in sock sack and medium sizes. They are so well-made and too cute for words!

For those of you that know Zealana yarns, how lucky are we to have these finally back in stock?

These blends of possum from New Zealand create incredibly soft garments and accessories with a layer of fuzz that doesn’t shed or pill. If you don’t believe us, come in and check out our 3×3 ribbed scarf. This sample has been in our shop for years, but you would never know it because this yarn is so durable.

If you are looking for cashmere, check out our new vendor Clinton Hill Cashmere. The Bespoke is an aran weight of 100% Italian cashmere and is absolutely to die for. Check out these sophisticated neutrals:

Of course, the ultimate luxury is the Vicuna Box from Amano Yarns.

These rare yarns are housed in natural wooden boxes made by Peruvian artists. So few of these are produced that each box is marked with an individual number. Everyone should get the chance to touch this special vicuna yarn!

So, that’s the rundown in a nutshell. Of course we have so much more, including a large restock of Traveling Yarn that has just arrived. It’s time to get excited about fall, so stop in and see what we’ve got going on!
