New Fabric

Make this quilt using a digitally printed panel and coordinating fabrics. We have everything you need for this quick project in stock. 

This beautiful collection of southwest fabric arrived last week. Phone orders welcome for our out of town customers.


New Yarn

Cairns yarn from the Queensland Collection: We just received three colorways of this brightly colored cabled yarn, Kangaroo Isle, Tasmania, and Wollongong. There are 190 yds in each 100gr ball, and the gauge is 18sts/4 inches on a #8 needle, or 12sts/4 inches on a J crochet hook. This 60% cotton/40% acrylic blend will make soft, summery scarves and tops, and is perfect for making baby items. 

Huasco yarn from Araucania: This extra-fine superwash merino yarn is perfect for socks or a brightly colored scarf or cowl. The colorway is reminiscent of a rainbow.  There are 454 yds in each 100gr hank, and the gauge is 30sts/4 inches on a 4 needle, or 32sts/4 inches on an E crochet hook.

We quickly sold out of the Llama Rush colorway of the Khusku yarn from Mirasol, so we ordered more. This handpainted 40% merino wool/40% bamboo/20% nylon yarn will make wonderful socks or a soft, luxurious scarf or cowl.
