June News: Summer Shawls & Sweet Sock Yarns

Summertime knitting is in full swing! The temps are rising and so are our hopes that this season will be one full of iced tea, juicy watermelon, and relaxing knits.

What better way to celebrate the warmer season than by draping a colorful shawl of butterflies across your shoulders? Or by getting your hands on our brand new colors of ultra-luxe silk yarn? Or ultra-sweet candy themed sock yarn? You get the idea.

New Yarns

Surefoot “Candy Hearts” Sock Labs – Limited Edition

Say hello to our first-ever Surefoot Sock Lab experiment, Candy Hearts! Dreamy swirls of candy-coated pastel shades add a sweetness to our downy-soft and lofty-smooth superwash wool, mohair, and nylon blend sock yarn. These colorful fiber confections are light and velvety while still boasting the same sock-yarn durability and washability as our other sock yarn families. So don’t be shy! Indulge your heart’s desire for ultra-luxe lightweight sweaters, socks, and accessories.

Don’t miss your chance – much like that secret candy stash in your craft room, these lovely limited-edition colors won’t last forever!
