New Bases Ready for Fall

As Fall slowly starts to creep into most of the Northern Hemisphere, we at QCC Yarn are still in the midst of summer and will be for a few more months. In order to make it feel more like the seasons are changing, we have started to dye up some autumnal and Halloween colors.

In addition to the new colors, we now have three new yarn bases available: Floofy Cat, Forlorn Cat and Cat-Mandu.

Floofy and Forlorn Cats are 2-ply fingering weight yarns, with 400 yards per 100g. Floofy Cat is 80% SW Merino/20% nylon. Forlorn Cat is 80% SW British BFL/20% nylon.
Cat-Mandu is a 3-ply fingering weight yarn with 436 yards per 100g. It’s 70% SW Merino/20% yak/10% nylon.

Cat-Mandu is a rather special yarn. It has a natural grey base, due to the yak fiber; when dyed, it creates wonderfully deep, rich colors. These colors are only available on the Cat-Mandu base, unlike our other colorways, which can be dyed on any of our other bases.

New Colors and New Yarn Base

QCC Yarn has just launched its newest yarn, Delightful Cat. Delightful Cat is a wonderfully soft and bouncy DK weight yarn, that’s 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon blend, with 246 yards per 100g. It’s a delight to knit with and the stitch definition is fantastic.

We have lots of these new colors ready to ship. If you would like more than what is listed, we can always dye you more.

To highlight our 10 new colorways, we’ve dyed them up on our new base: Sad Cat.

Sad Cat is a 75/25 Superwash Bluefaced Leicester/nylon blend. This wonderfully soft and versatile yarn is perfect for your next shawl or cardigan. You can even use it for socks, thanks to the nylon.

Our 10 new colorways are: Hogwash, Orchidelirium, Up River, Rustic Rust, Belly Button Lint, Pepperoncini, Tusk, Tempestuous, Gnome Home and Deja Vu Whale.

These colorways are repeatable. They can be dyed to order if you want more than is listed.

Small Update & a Little Move

We’ve added a few new colors to the QCC Yarn line and we have also decided to move it to its own website. This separation of Ewe Sew An Sew and QCC Yarn will help us to better focus each site on its own products.

At qccyarn.com we can offer better shipping options, especially to our international customers. We also have a rewards program called Happy Cats. You’ll be able to earn Happy Cats every time you shop and by creating an account you’ll get 200 Happy Cats! Those 200 Happy Cats can be redeemed for a $5 discount to be used on your next order.
