We will be carrying Pix by Wisdom Yarns, a superwash wool and nylon blend which comes in eight fun colorways! This vibrant colorway is called Tiger Lily.

This sample was knit in a 7x1 rib with an eye of partridge heel.

The Mountain Town Cowl by Elizabeth Doherty @bluebeestudio in Baby Alpaca Worsted EC by @plymouthyarn is the softest thing ever! One skein of this machine-washable (really!) 100% alpaca yarn is all you need to create this fun and beautiful knit. Squish it for yourself in the shop! 😊

Michelle went a little freestyle with this asymmetric shawl knitted in @plymouthyarn Incan Spice. It is so soft - extra fine merino, baby alpaca, mulberry silk and yak! See and feel it for yourself in the shop - we have limited hours this week, and next week begins our Grand Opening!

The Leaving Cowl is a free pattern by Maria Magnusson @mariamagnussonknits and it is just gorgeous on Fibra Natura Ravello, offered by Universal Yarn @universal_yarn .

This was a fun and quick knit that only uses one ball of Ravello - a super-soft blend of cotton, fine merino and recycled cashmere. We have every colorway! 🧶
