Colorful Cakes of Yarn from HiKoo, Feel the Fuzz with Stargazer Brushed, Knitting Class News and More!



 



Huge Colorful Cakes of Simplicity Spray

   . 

Help us welcome these ginormous cakes of yarn from HiKoo: Simplicity Spray.  This colorful cakes include the same fiber content as HiKoo's versatile and user-friendly Simplicity, but each cake is created with a new dying technique and a beautiful variegated color palette.  Each cake is a whopping 456 yards, which means that even one is enough to knit up a cool shawl or generous cowl.  And given that it's meant to go into your washing machine and dryer, you won't think twice about using it for your favorite knitworthy people: young, old or just terrible at laundry. 

Consider knitting up cozy/stylish pieces like Irina Eberhardt's Alzada (pictured below left) or Isabell Kraemer's La Vie Est Belle (pictured below right).  Each gorgeous and colorful cake is a blend merino, acrylic and nylon for a soft and versatile hand.  They come in 456 yard cakes and are $37 each.  Click here to see all the beautiful colors and to buy online.


 





Aalta Baskets! You Can Put Your Needlework In It!

A big, beautiful delivery of Aalta baskets just dropped into Wool & Grace.  This collection of baskets includes beautiful blue mixes and a variety of sizes of our favorite baskets.  Why do we love Aalta baskets so much?

Made from wool carpet fiber remnants, they reduce waste and become functional pieces.  Their wool is fully moth-proofed and they feature leather handles, making them durable.  Best of all, these beautiful, one of a kind pieces are made in the USA!

Big Love for Stargazer Brushed

We've got a big crush on our new yarn from Juniper Moon FarmsStargazer Brushed is chunky blend of llama and nylon, created by blowing those soft llama fibers through a mesh core.  The result is a yarn that is soft and fuzzy, warm and lofty, and altogether wonderful.  Stargazer Brushed comes in big hanks (284 yards each) of yarn, meaning you can get a lot done with one or two skeins.  

We just knit up a fabulous cardigan, Ankestrick's Big Love (pictured below), in Stargazer Brushed and it's at Wool & Grace so you can see this soft and cozy yarn in action.  This versatile and cozy cardigan is your ultimate weekend sweater or throw-on-over-anything cardigan.  While there are tons of awesome yarns for this popular project, we think it looks inviting and on-trend in Stargazer Brushed.

Each fabulously fuzzy skein of Stargazer Brushed is 284 yards and $21.  Click here to learn more or buy online!







We're trying to give our awesome customers and extra challenge in our Clear the Cubbies Sale, as we keep filling them back up!  That's right, new yarns are on sale this week, including the divinely soft Shibui Maai and Shibui Birch.  These luxurious yarns love to be mixed - together in the ever-popular Val Cowl - or with just about anything else.  Of course, it's also fun to let them play on their own - like using 5 or 6 colors of Birch to knit up Stephen West's Vertices Unite. (Come see both of these samples at Wool & Grace!) 

On sale, each skein of Maai is 175 yards and $12.25 - click here to buy online!
On sale, each skein of Birch is 262 yards and $10.85 - click here to buy online!
