New Yarns!!!

Lots of new yarns have just been added!!

Simply Socks, our 100% superwash merino fingering weight has been replaced with Verve. Verve is also SW Merino and fingering weight but has a GREAT twist that I just couldn't resist. And since I couldn't really justify having two fingering weight, SW Merino yarns, Simply Socks simply had to go.

Leili is also fingering weight, making it perfect for socks, shawls and just about anything else you can imagine (need a larger gauge? hold two stands together!) but this one is a blend of mohair and SW merino. The mohair gives it a great sheen, extra warmth and a slight halo of fuzz. Plus the mohair is stronger than Merino and helps it hold up to use.

Super Wool is soft, squishy, superwash wool in a dk weight. This yarn is perfect for hats, scarves and even thick (washable!) socks. I've been wanting a yarn like this for a while for my own personal use and have finally found it.

Anna's Yarn is the big sister of Leili. A DK weight mohair/merino blend it has the same sheen and halo as Leili but in a thicker yarn ideal for sweaters, hats, warm cozy wraps or even thick socks.

Last but not least, Chasca, our newest Lace weight yarn. Chasca is 100% superfine alpaca and has a whopping 1240 yards per 4oz skein, plenty for almost any lace stole or wrap. Because its alpaca, its warm, fuzzy and soft.

So... OOC, what are you doing with all the left over Simply Socks? ;)

And does this make my test socks obsolete?
