New Yarn

Last week we received a shipment from Done Roving, a small farm in Maine. Their base yarn is spun with fiber from animals raised in Maine. They aim to be as organic as possible.

We received a few special cakes of Frolicking Feet Gradient, a DK-Sport 100% domestic merino superwash merino that starts with one color, gradually transitions to other colors and ends with a final one. A little on the pricey side (but worth it!) this is a true gradient yarn that's perfect for shawls or scarves where you want gradual color changes to highlight the stitch design. Each 4 oz. cake is 350 yards.

We also received Frolicking Feet superwash sock yarn, a 100% domestic superwash merino wool yarn that is hand-dyed and available in both a fingering and DK weight yarn.  The fingering weight is 480 yds per 4 oz skein and the DK is 350 yds. In addition to socks you can also make lovely accessories. The colorways are vibrant. We also received a worsted weight yarn in the same 100% superwash merino that is 220 yd per 4 oz skein.
