Fall is Coming... Cumbria, Classes and More!

Fall is Coming... Cumbria, Classes and More!

It's hard to believe that it's already September! Fall is on the way, and with it comes the promised land for fibre artists. We're gearing up at the shop to bring in some great new yarns this season and we've also started working on the class schedule.

Did you know that you can capture the English countryside in Wool?  Cumbria is a classic worsted weight yarn in saturated colours inspired by lakes and hills. In combining the brown wool from Brown Masham with a fine Mohair from Argentina, a strength, lustre and warmth is produced that is ideal for handknitting. These two fibres are blended with a fine South American Merino to give the final yarn a softness and beautiful hand. Cumbria is a great choice for making that perfect cozy sweater. We have 9 colours available and some great patterns by Bristol Ivy to peruse. Visit us to see Cumbria in person, or shop here!

Our new staff team also means that we have a breadth of knowledge and skills on offer. We've decided to switch things up a bit and offer some new classes this fall, including crochet, brioche knitting, and needle felting. Of course we've kept the Absolute Beginner Class in there for the knitting newbies among us. 

To learn more about the classes and to register, please click here. We hope you'll join us an learn something new this fall.

Our old friend Cascade Ecological Wool and Eco + is back. A great workhouse yarn for blankets, sweaters, cardies, cozy scarves and cowls in giant 250g skeins. One of the best values around!

Last but certainly not least, we just received a stunning array of Malabrigo in the shop. Malabrigo is at the top of their game, and this round of dying is absolutely masterful. Just look at this absoutely flawless batch of Arco Iris in Mechita. 

In addition to Mechita, we restocked and received new colourways in all of the bases that we carry. Now you can shop and browse online!

That's all for now, but stay tuned as we reveal some exciting new plans for the shop this fall. There are some big changes a foot and we're excited to share them with you in our next post.
