Easy Inspiration with Brooklyn Tweed & Loopy Mango Trunk Shows, Quick Gift Knitting with Super Bulky Knits and More!



 


 
  • Stop By for Trunk Shows Galore!

A beautiful Brooklyn Tweed trunk show is going strong at Wool & Grace.  This glorious collection features pieces knit up in ShelterLoft and Quarry, which are exactly the type of yarns you want to knit and wear now that we are in sweater weather! 

One of the best things about seeing these beautiful trunk shows is to see how beautifully these special woolen-spun yarns wear and how beautifully they soften with time.  There's a little of everything in this collection, from easy pieces for aspiring sweater knitters, to intricately cabled and constructed wraps and garments.  Agnes (top left) and Roslyn (top right) are two incredibly wearable pieces that let knitters relish these lovely yarns and focus on thoughtful construction.  This Brooklyn Tweed trunk show will be at Wool & Grace until October 28.  

Mark Your Calendar:
Loopy Mango Trunk Show Coming Soon!

Tons and Tons of New Madeline Tosh!

A big, big BIG shipment of MadelineTosh yarns arrived to Wool & Grace this week!  We are fully restocked in colors galore of Tosh Merino Light, have sweater quantities of worsted-weight Vintage and are happy to welcome Home back for some cold-weather accessories and awesome gift knitting!

Tosh Merino Light is MadelineTosh's 100% merino, single-ply, fingering weight yarn.  This incredibly soft yarn takes in MadelineTosh's signature hand-dyes so beautifully, and is a favorite for scarves, shawls, sweaters, hats and mitts for all ages.  Plus, we have a fun selection of colors that feature MadTosh's Holo Glitter!  Machine-wash cold and lay flat to dry.  Each skein is 420 yards and $24 to $24.50.  

Vintage is a worsted-weight workhorse with a bit of flair.  Tons of twist make this super-wash yarn easy to knit, easy to wear and easy to care for.  Our knitters love to use this yarn for absolutely everything - and it truly can do it all!  If you have been coveting 4 skeins to make up our Simply Irresistible Wrap (pictured below) in its sample color, don't hesitate and snag your four skeins of Court & Sparkle to make this wrap for yourself!  Each skein of Vintage is 200 yards and $24.

Home is a plied, bulky-weight yarn made of a super-wash merino.  Each dreamy skein is like a work of art, and one is enough to knit up a unique and striking hat, pair of mitts or little cowl.  We love Home for gift knitting, so much so that this week's blog is filled with ideas of what to make with this glorious yarn.  Each skein of Home is $24 and 110 yards.
