You cannot get a much more Canadian name than "Timber Yarns", and this one is just so special! You get two 50gram/200 metre skeins that will give you perfectly matched socks when you start at the same end.
They have been hand dyed at the same time with 80% superwash Merino and 20% nylon to make strong, colourful and funky socks!
In addition, there are these sweet little solid skeins that you could use as heels and toes, and also, check out the sweet little progress keepers...I just LOVE the little sayings...always nice to have a little chuckle while you are knitting eh? And just as an added little treat..with names like "The Ambitious Serpent"..."The Brave Lion"..."Humble Badger" ..."Intelligent Eagle" and "9 3/4"....well, you might just see a correlation to a somewhat famous book series....turned Mega movies!
As always, if a colour strikes your fancy, email me so I can tuck it away for you.
You all know my penchant for bringing you wonderful Canadian yarns, and this one isjust fantastic!
From Calgary comes "Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts" and their " Socknado"fingering weight yarn. There will be only 20 skeins of this "Colour of the Month", and I cannot wait to see it in person!
It is called "Hawaiian Hibiscus", a perfect name for such a wonderful colour! And there will also be two complementary colours, "Where the Coho Go" and "Lime Margarita." ( Yum!!)
With 385 yards, this 80% Superwash fine Merino and 20% nylon, will knit up into socks, shawls, pretty tops, you name it!
The company uses premimum bases and the yarn is ethically milled and hand-dyed...everything you would expect from an incredible Canadian company!! Each month they bring out a new colour that is only available for the month and I think this colour for March is just spectacular!!
This yarn should arrive any day now, so if you want one or two please let me know, and as soon as they arrive I will set it aside for you , as I am sure it will go fast!!
Now that winter is upon us, it is always nice to snuggle down with a new project, and these are just the thing!
These darling little wooden looms, made in Canada, are the perfect respite from larger projects and are great for weaving up a quick set of coasters, a bracelet, some funky brooches or whatever your little creative heart desires!
And if you are entertaining the Grandkids on a snow day...what a fabulous way to introduce them to the ancient art of weaving.
Pop on in or shoot me an email to have me put one aside for you.
