June, 2015

Summer is almost here, and gardening season is in full swing! The city is looking beautiful.
We have had many new yarns arrive this month from new colors of existing lines, to yarns new to us.  The colors are amazing and the qualities are wonderful!

We have received HiKoo's "Rylie" yarn in new colors!  This yarn is wonderful for shawls, accessories or light sweaters.  The alpaca, silk and linen in this blend creates an elegant drape.  Dyed in soft pastels, beachy brights and glowing neutrals, this is a great transeasonal yarn.
