Yarn

Guest: Susie and Mark, owners of Kollage Yarns detail the yarns that we are now carrying in our store and online.

  • Corntastic – 100% corn, 8-ply DK weight yarn. It comes in 105 yard skeins in beautiful colors. Unlike some corn yarn, Corntastic isn’t “crunchy.” It is also machine wash and dry!
  • Milky Whey – 50% milk/50% soy that is incredibly soft!
  • Luscious – cotton/nylon elastic blend. Perfect for socks and people who don’t prefer wool, or those who have a sensitivity to wool.
  • Kollage Square Needles
