Last Chance Yarn: Alux
Alux Yarn: 16 skeins of colorful yarn lay on a white background

While we love welcoming exciting new yarns, it’s so hard to say goodbye to other yarns, even though it’s a necessary part of our pledge to bring you the best products at the best prices. We have to discontinue some products to make room for new ones, so we are sad to see our sparkly luxury 66% Baby Alpaca and 34% Lurex yarn, Alux, go away.

But there’s some good news! Between the “goodbye” tag and the Summer Yarn Sale prices, you can get this dazzling yarn for a super duper deal.

In case you haven’t had a chance to check out Alux, here’s a little bit about it: either golden or silvery thread bedazzles every color of this opulent yarn, perfect for enchanting accessories and gleaming garments. And with a full third of the fiber content dedicated to shiny sparkle, any fan of glitter and sparkle is sure to swoon, especially with the ethereal softness of Baby Alpaca to ensure next-to-skin cuddliness.

Behind the scenes, one of the challenges for us has been to convey to you just HOW SPARKLY Alux is from behind the veil of the internet. Photography isn’t quite advanced enough (yet) to show all that glitz! But rest assured, it’s such a beautiful yarn in person.

If you’d like to give Alux a try, check out the Eden Lace shawl pattern from our new knit lace collection Sojourn— it’s a lovely lacy shawl with plenty of sparkle. We made it in Pennyroyal (a lavender), but it would look equally lovely in any of Alux’s 16 colors.

So get your fill of Alux now, before time (and stock) runs out! The Summer Yarn Sale ends 7/23/19 at 11:59pm PT.

    I am so sorry to see this yarn go. I really think it is one of the few yarns that is soft and has lovely sparkle. I have used it alone and combined with other yarns. I think this is a mistake because I know of nothing else like this on the market.
