Introducing Full Circle!

Some of you might have noticed a new yarn at Knit Picks today.

This yummy, single ply yarn is made from a blend of Merino and Highland wool fibers that would have otherwise been discarded.

Felici Favorites are here

In June, I asked for your nominations for Felici Favorites, your all time favorite colorways of our Felici self-striping yarn. I was overwhelemed by the number of responses I got!! It took a long time to look through all the comments here and in the KP Lovers Group on Ravelry (Ravelry link), but based on your suggestions and our sales data for Felici, we narrowed it down to 9 colors and placed our order. And now they're here!! Thank you so much for helping us make this tough decision.
