Highlights of new yarns

We've just gotten a shipment of Fixation, and we're now fully stocked.  So if you fell in love with this yarn as the August sock-of-the-month yarn, you can get more!  If you haven't tried it yet, Fixation is a mix of soft cotton and elastic.  We love it for socks, and lots of customers use it to make headbands for babies.  We also have several customers who have knitted underwear with it.  (Hey, don't knock it until you try it!)  Solid colors are $4.60, variegated colors are $5.50 per 50g/100yd ball.

Another new arrival is 220 Sport.  This is the same yarn as Cascade 220, only sport-weight.  Or DK.  You can work it at either gauge.  It's feltable, 100% wool.  And it's only $3.75 for a 50g/164yd skein!

 You know about Cha-Cha, right?  The one that makes its own ruffles as you know.  We have two new variegated colors!  And navy, which we haven't had before.  This yarn is $25, but you only need one skein to make a classy, all-ruffle-all-the-time scarf!

Colorchanges is a new self-striping yarn from Ironstone.  It's chunky, wool & acrylic, and so soft and squishy!  Love it.  It's 50g/100yds.  One skein for a beanie, two skeins for a stocking cap with a foldable brim.  $6.50 each.

These yarns recently highlighted in our e-mail newsletter.  Here are their prices:
Trendsetter Venus - $25 per skein.  See what other people are doing with it on Ravelry.

Kami Bison Lace - $30 per skein.  Learn about this Bison blend from Fibre Isle (Prince Edward Island, Canada.)
