WEBS End of Summer Sale,  July 30 - Aug. 22, 2015 at yarn.com Read more on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

We can’t believe it’s the end of summer already! We’ve got to clear some space for all the new Fall yarns that are starting to come in which means that you get to take advantage of some incredible deals in our End of Summer Sale.

Schachenmayer Lova Fan in the WEBS End of Summer Sale,  July 30 - Aug. 22, 2015 at yarn.com Read more on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

It’s the perfect time to stock up on Schachenmayr Lova Fan, a bulky wool blend yarn in great sports color combinations. This yarn works up very quickly into mittens, scarves, and great hats in no time. I made a hat in less than 2 hours, in orange and black, to wear at my daughter’s field hockey games once the weather turns colder, and the yarn did all the striping! Just 2 skeins, less than $10, and a I used our FREE Last Minute Hat pattern, or you can check out all the FREE hat patterns in their My Mountain Schachenmayr Design Contest Winners eBook.

Noro Shiraito, shown here in the Asymmetric Shawl, in the WEBS End of Summer Sale,  July 30 - Aug. 22, 2015 at yarn.com Read more on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

I’ve always been a fan of Noro yarns and the Shiraito has caught my eye. I love the idea of pairing this yarn with a coordinating solid, like you see in the Asymmetric Shawl, we even carry the Baby Cashmerino they recommend in the pattern! 2 skeins of each yarn plus the pattern will cost you less than $60 and you’ll have a gorgeous, and stylish shawl to show for it.

Blue Sky Alpacas Techno, shown here in Valley Yarns FREE Last Minute Mittens pattern, in the WEBS End of Summer Sale,  July 30 - Aug. 22, 2015 at yarn.com Read more on the WEBS Blog at blog.yarn.com

Blue Sky Alpacas Techno has been one of my favorite yarns since it came in! Alpaca and merino blown into a silk mesh tube so you end up with a bulky yarn that is light as air, and it comes in eye popping colors. I used the yarn doubled and knit a pair of our FREE Last Minute Mittens in my daughter’s favorite green. Just 3 skeins of Techno would make 2 pairs, that’s just $15 per pair! There are also a few great FREE patterns from Blue Sky Alpacas for this yarn.

With over 50 yarns to choose from in our End of Summer Sale you’re sure to find some great deals to get you started on wonderful fall and holiday projects, as well as some great classic yarns to enhance your stash. The Sale starts today and runs until 11:59pm EDT August 22nd, so stock up now, quantities are limited! Which yarns are you excited about?
