Yarns of the Month – 15% off

We have two yarns on sale this month: Ultra Alpaca and Gästrike 3 tr.

Ultra Alpaca is a worsted weight yarn made of 50% superfine alpaca and 50% Peruvian wool. It is wonderful to knit and wonderful to wear. The 215 yard skein is a good value even before the discount.

Gästrike 3tr is a three-ply 100% wool from Sweden. This knits as a dk weight yarn on #6 needles and holds its own using up to #10 1/2 needles. The skeins are 220 yards, available in black, white and shades of grey.
