Master Color Series 2: Winter, Begone!

Not sure you can make it through six more weeks of winter? Don’t worry, we’ve got just the thing to knit (or crochet) your way to spring: the Master Color Series 2!

Each set in our Master Color Series contains colors which complement each other, making it easy to choose the perfect color for your next project…because no matter what you pick, they all look great together! We’ve chosen our luxurious 100% Mongolian Cashmere base Xanadu, a light fingering weight which is perfect for stripes, colorwork, or to use all on its own.

This is the time of year when we start to hope for winter’s end — but until spring arrives, the warmth and comfort of a fine cocktail and even better yarn can get us through the long, cold days.

So, this time around we decided to name all 6 colors in this series after cocktails! Shown above (from L-R): Macbeth, Absinthe, Blonde Ambition, Beneath Broken Earth, Maiden’s Blush & Cosmo. Click here to seem them all!

Enter Our Cashmere Yarn & Book Giveaway!

The new year is the perfect time to treat yo’self — and we can’t think of a better way to indulge than with our 100% Mongolian cashmere yarn, Xanadu. This luxurious yarn was recently used to knit one of the patterns in EVERYDAY, a new book by Jen Geigley: Equinox is a pair of 100% Mongolian cashmere stirrup thigh-high yoga socks. These socks are seamless and worked in the round from the bottom up and exude pure style and luxury. Knit using 2 hanks of Bijou Basin Ranch Xanadu yarn in black, you’ll be ready to cozy up in these stylish socks all winter long.

We’re giving one lucky person a chance to win 2 skeins of Xanadu yarn in their choice of in-stock colors (enough to knit the project) and a print copy of the book!
