Budding for Babes



Juniper Moon's Bud has been a wonderful cotton to introduce at Wool & Grace this year.  This incredibly soft, bulky-weight cotton comes in a wide palette of colors to work into pieces for everyone.  We love Bud as sweater yarn: it knits up quickly into pieces that can be worn any time of year.  We also love using it to knit into beautiful kids' knits.  The bright colors make happy knitting for your favorite little ones.  




Try knitting up the Blossom Baby Sweater from Churchmouse Yarns and Tea (pictured above).  Bud will turn this versatile cardigan into a staple piece for any young one.  The Blossom Baby Sweater comes in sizes 6-12 months and 12-18 months, and requires 2 or 3 skeins of Bud. 

 

The Chevron Baby Blanket from Purl Soho is a timeless heirloom for all babies!  This classic and adorable blanket is knit up in 5 colors - you'll need two of each color to complete the blanket!

Juniper Moon Bud has a delightful 109 yards in each skein and is $13.50 a skein! You can learn more and buy online by clicking here!




Cotton and Cashmere All Year Long

We're a little obsessed with Rowan's Cotton Cashmere.  We used it to knit up our Linea Tee for our Linea KAL this spring, and it's become clear to us that this yarn is a dream for knitting up sweaters and accessories that you can wear throughout all four seasons.  Cotton Cashmere is a supple dk-weight blend of the two fibers, 85% cotton and 15% cashmere.  Earlier in the season we shared a couple great shawls using this lovely yarn with you.  Now we want you to imagine it coming to life in sweaters that are a delight to layer anytime.  




Sarah Hatton's Madras is an open cardigan for effortless layering anytime.  It has a straightforward construction, knit flat in pieces and seamed together.  Madras uses 7 to 10 balls of Cotton Cashmere.





Tiking is a classic crewneck pullover with a hint of texture.  Three-quarter sleeves make it wearable anytime of year (or they can be lengthened easily).  Another design by Sarah Hatton, Tiking is also knit flat in pieces and seamed together for a simple, straightforward construction.  Tiking uses 6 to 9 balls of Cotton Cashmere.

Cotton Cashmere comes in 143 yard balls, each is $14.50.  Click here to learn more about this lovely yarn or to buy online!

We Need You To Clear The Cubbies!

Our Clear the Cubbies Sale is still going on, with wonderful yarns here and new yarns being added to the sale cubbies!  



Since summer is still here, we think you should take advantage of the opportunity to snag some of Juniper Moon's Neve while you can!  We love this versatile, worsted-weight cotton yarn.  Its chainette construction makes it easier on the hands and needles than your typical cotton.  Practically perfect for baby items, we also think its a lovely choice for tops and sweaters, as well!  Try knitting up Pam Allen's Togue Pond or Elizabeth Smith's Mira (both pictured below) in this cool cotton.  Each cotton-y skein of Neve is 222 yards and $8.40 on sale!

  

New to the Clear the Cubbies Sale is Wool & the Gang's Kinda Magic Sock Yarn.  This miraculous printed yarn knits into a colorful leopard-print pattern.  All you have to do is knit a pair of socks in stockinette stitch!  Click here to get your magical sock yarn online and on sale!
