Guest:
 Kathy and our Berroco Rep., Andra Asars, discuss the New Spring yarns from Berroco.

Fuji –  worsted silk/cotton blend, almost a tweed or marled effect due to the fibers taking the dye differently

Maya(Andra’s current yarn crush!) – a chainette construction pima cotton/baby alpaca blend  soft and machine washable with beautiful drape

Karma – bulky cotton in a fish net construction, like the ruffle yarns, but meant to be knit as a classic yarn.

Two additions to existing yarn lines: Captiva Metallic and Weekend DK. All the new, spring yarns are machine washable

 The cover sweater, Niche, from Norah Gaughan Collection Vol. 12 is knit in Maya.

There are 56 new designs for Spring!
Pattern Booklets: 332 – Floret331 – Maya330 – Karma329 – Lago, Seduce & Captiva Metallic328 – Weekend Stripes327 –  Fuji

    There is something wrong with the way Episode 295 is posted. It links (sort of) to a file with a date of 1/12/12 and then it can’t download that file at all. (not from my computer, android phone, or iPad)
