New base, new kits, and a discount!

  • Blue, pink and gray speckled yarn.

Hello all,

We have a lot going on this week! Saturday’s update (March 21st at 10 a.m. EDT) is a big one so you won’t want to miss it.

Our new Faun base is making its debut! Faun is the softest base we’ve ever dyed. It is an 80/10/10 blend of SW Merino, Cashmere and nylon on a springy 3-ply twist with 414yds/skein. Faun is just a touch heavier than sock weight yarn, but not quite a sport weight, making it perfect for projects that require either weight.And did I mention the drape? It’s incredible! The 3-ply twist and Cashmere make for such an interesting fabric that takes the dye a little differently than the other bases we carry. The speckles soak in a bit more and the tonals are much more balanced. You’ll have to feel it to believe it!

Have you seen the new Side Trip cowl by Samantha Guerin?! It is a reversible colorwork cowl that only takes two skeins of Lambstrings Yarn Ewetopia DK. She’s so talented! We will have kits for the Side Trip cowl available in the update.

Of course, we have to acknowledge that these are weird and scary times for all of us. I’m well aware that so many are going forward without the security of finances and/or are dealing with this epidemic in isolation and fear. We need to be taking care of ourselves and others, it is so incredibly important! Whatever your situation, we would like to be supportive.

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy, and crafting like crazy!
