Yarns – New Stock

New Closeouts

Guest: Andra Asars, our Berroco Sales Rep. joins us to discuss the new Berroco Spring line.
We generally get Berroco spring in first, and we have them in stock now!
Mica has a very subtle sheen to it, especially when knit. The shine does go dull when you look at a knitted piece.
Latitude is a wrapped cord yarn, like Seduce, but much more casual. It’s constructed the same way, but it’s a smoother cord with no shine. It’s extremely versitile!
Pure Pima is a half mercerized, half unmercerized cotton blend. The different treatments create a fantastic depth of color.
Bonsai Colors and Seduce Colors are very subtle palettes without a high-contrast.
Berroco Sox Metallic is a collection of bright colors splashed with glitz.
Comfort Chunky is a 3.5 stitch version of the ever-popular Comfort.

Guest: Carol Sulcoski, author of Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarns
Carol was able to work with some incredible, well-known designers, and also talented designers who have not been featured in books before.
The beginning of the book tells you about how yarns are hand dyed, the different ways they are dyed, and what they look like when knit up. It contains really valuable information to consider when selecting hand dyed yarns.
Check out Black Bunny Fibers, Carol’s own hand dyed yarns.
