31 Aug The Berroco has Landed!
We’ve just received a very large shipment of Berroco including two brand new lines released this fall!
Cotolana is a worsted-weight chainette texture that blends wool, cotton, and nylon for a lightweight but durable yarn. Simple textured stitches shine in this soft and cozy new offering from Berroco. It’s also machine washable and would make the most comfortable sweaters. If we were to hazard a guess, this might be Berroco’s answer to Spud and Chloe Sweater…
Some of you were introduced to Tuscan Tweed at the grand re-opening since it was the door prize on offer for the day. Blackstone Tweed has been discontinued and Tuscan Tweed is the new more durable option. A delightful blend of wool, viscose, and mohair in a worsted weight, this timeless tweed yarn is perfect for simple stitches as well as sophisticated lace or cable patterns. We are in LOVE with the Woodbine cabled sweater included in the pattern book.
Vintage and Ultra Alpaca are two of the most beloved lines in the store so we’ve gone ahead and brought in more colourways in many of the different weights. Here’s a sampling of what’s in store.
The store will be open for regular hours during the Labour Day weekend – 11 to 6 on Friday, 11 to 4 on Saturday, 12 to 4 on Sunday, and closed on Monday. We re-open at 11 on Tuesday and the Purlez-Vous knitting social will resume it’s normal time from 7-9pm on Tuesday nights. See you soon!
