Crazy's Are Back, Big Cotton in New Colors, Still Time for Knitting Class Sign Up and More!



 




It's Crazy Time! 


A new shipment of Crazy yarn from Stonehedge Fiber Mill arrived at Wool & Grace, and we're ready for more color fun!  Each skein of Crazy is a one-of-a-kind, made with the mill-ends of Stonehedge Fiber Mill's soft, wool yarn.  Broad bands of marled color make for effortless character in your hand knits.  

Each skein of Crazy is 230 yards and $12!



This time around, we're super inspired to make Andrea Mowry's The Shift in this fabulous yarn.  Three skeins will do the trick, making a fiddle-free accessory that can be worn any time of year.  Be sure to check out this week's blog to see some fantastic examples of the Shift made in Crazy!
