New Yarns!

We have three brand new yarns to introduce you to! Lace weight yarns are very popular right now- in fact we have a hard time keeping them in stock. So we have added two new lace weight yarns to our collection

Ling is an elegant, cultivated silk/superwash merino blend that soaks up deep, bold and bright colorways. The twist is tight, giving the yarn more the slightest texture that keeps it from slipping from your needles as easily as 100% silk and making it not quite so shiny.

Ostara is a more casual alternative in 100% cotton. Ideal for those sensitive to animal fibers, it is also perfect for lightweight summer wraps. It is also a more economical alternative to some of our more expensive lace weight yarns.

If your taste is for soft and squishy yarns in a slightly thicker fingering weight, you'll be delighted with Pashmi. This Cashmere/SW Merino/Nylon blend makes the most luxurious shawls and scarves and can even be used for extra special socks. Its so soft, I can't stop knitting baby items out of it!

We have all three yarns in stock and they are available on our website now! Or, encourage your favorite Unique Sheep retailer to place a wholesale order for these great new yarns!
