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!

  • 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

  • 24″ circular needle #5, #7 (or size for gauge)
  • stitch markers
  • 3-4 buttons

  • graph paper
  • 4.5 sts & 6 rows per inch in stockinette on larger needles
