February Launch: New Yarns, New Collections, New Fun

Knit Picks faux fur pom pom

Early February can be a mixed bag, depending on where you reside in the world. Still technically winter, the first signs of spring (yay!) are beginning to show themselves, and that has us bubbling over with inspiration. Come along with me as I highlight our latest pattern collections and say ‘hello’ to the return of some new and improved yarn lines.

New Yarns

Provincial Tweed – With bright colors and subtle tweedy neps, this surprisingly soft yarn brings an exuberant and folksy charm to our selection of tweeds. Who knew tweed could be so whimsical?

Along with the newbie Provincial Tweed, we recently revamped two of our previous yarn lines. First up, Stroll Glimmer. With a range of colors suited for just about anyone, the subtle sparkle from the shimmering Stellina strands allow you to dress up everything from socks to shawls. Bonus: it’s machine washable!

Next, we upped the color saturation in our baby alpaca + mulberry silk blend, Diadem. The result? An ultra-luxe, über-gorgeous array of hues ranging from jewel tones to soft, shiny neutrals. View each of the 12 luscious colors here.

    I have been to 5 craft/yarn fabric stores looking for a white pom pom to replace one from a hat! Next order, I will be adding in a white large pom pom
