As we come to the end of February, I look back over the winter months. It's been a busy year! Here at Angelika's Yarn Store, we've been knocking down our "must get done" list. Part of that list is ordering in new yarns and refocusing on some of the amazing yarns that we've ignored over the last year.
Here are a few of my favorites
that would fall into my "oh, spoil me, please" category.
Fourteen is a "oh spoil me, please" yarn because despite it being a worsted weight yarn, it is light as air. Knit or crocheted loosely it is super amazing. And be very careful not to leave this in a restaurant or other public place because who ever may pick it up, will never return it! It's that scrumptious!
This light as air yarn is 90% Merino and 10% Cashmere. Knit and crochets up quickly! Allergic to wool? Think it is itchy? You won't believe this is wool. Fourteen was named "Fourteen" due to the micron count. From Very Course, Course, Medium and Fine, Fourteen falls into the Extra Fine category. Do something special for yourself. Grab a few balls and spoil yourself! The loftiness of the ply makes this super warm. Of course, perfect for cowls and hats, but also an ideal homecoming gift for new born babies. Imagine a photographing the newest member of the family in a knit or crochet cacoon.

Right: This sample was brought in by my yarn rep and is the reason why I fell for this yarn. This is a crochet scarf, Monochrome Plaid Scarf, by Juniper Moon Farm.
The sample above features the stitch used in a Cascade baby blanket pattern called Tumbling Blocks. I love how despite the softness of Cumulus, the knits and purls are still well defined.
The "oh, spoil me, please" claim Cumulus has is that this is the fabric you want on your body when you step out of the shower. The softness of this cotton cannot be believed. Such a delicate cotton, it is perfect for newborn receiving blankets, amazing for pillows to lay your head on, swim suit cover ups, or just maybe a very special towel for yourself!
The super softness of Juniper Moon Farm Cumulus unbelievable. This lofty-soft yarn is achieved by its chainette construction and its Israeli Mako Cotton. Mako Cotton has a thread length of between 30-34mm for the highest quality cotton fabrics. The resulting light weight fabric creates cables and textured stitches that show well.
Great yarn for capelets and light weight summer sweaters. Knit or crochet both works up beautifully. Sensitive to wool? Cumulus is a great substitution!

The sweet deal on Cozy Alpaca is its' price, and this makes Cozy Alpaca a "oh spoil me, please" yarn any day of the week. The feel of the fiber tells you high end....it's just a rich alpaca-merino-silky-like feel. But if you want to spoil yourself more often, Cozy Alpaca is easy on the checkbook, and certainly meets the qualifications to be called a "oh spoil me, please" yarn!! (PS: Stayed tuned, Cozy Alpaca Chunky is in the building, and soon to be online!)
This alpaca and acrylic blend is perfect for the next to skin projects, such as cowls. Also popular for toys, since it is machine washable. Many colors to choose from. This yarn is a cable plied yarn. Each of the four plies are composed of two plies that have been spun together. This unique construction produces a round yarn. Alpaca is also hypo-allergenic, and is a good option for some who have wool sensitivities.
