From saturated indigo to stonewashed blue, new spring yarns are inspired by denim! You’ll find gorgeous blues in solid, tonal, and variegated color throughout our collections–and the fibers are as soft and easy to wear as your favorite blue jeans. Be sure to check out the casual classic styles in Tahki Skinny Jeans; the ocean hues of Fibre Company Luma; and hot-house colors of Swans Island Fingering Ikat Collection.
Mark your calendars: Welcome Spring Storewide Sale is happening Saturday, March 18 and Sunday, March 19–everything in stock (except Madelinetosh) is 20% off!
Did you notice a new link at the top of this web page? It’s our new online store! We are working hard to get all our yarns online so you can shop day or night. It’s been a tremendous undertaking and I appreciate your patience as we slowly add products. If you see a yarn on our list that’s not yet for sale online, just give us a call and we’ll be happy to ship it to you.
