Code expires May 5, 2019, and is limited to stock on hand, so do not wait!

It's May Day !! (can you believe it already!) We've been sprucing up our classics.  Moving out the not so popular to the clearance area, and buying some new, what I would call "Oh Spoil Me, Please" yarn.

Jennifer has been trained, and like a ball of fire has been working on the web site.   She came to me one day, and said "Why don't you have a clearance tab?  Can we do one?"   Well duh.....yeah, we can do that.   I created a new page, and we tested a few yarns, and OH Yeah!   This is sweet!   

You see, I don't have a techy team doing my site.   It's just me and Jennifer!   And we are thankful for each and every one of you!

OK, so if you can't wait any longer, here is the link to the clearance page.   On the left you can check off if you just want to see one company, or leave them all unchecked to see them all!!  As we move from line to line, there will be more and more yarns that are in our clearance isle here in the store, added to the clearance web page.

Back to the classics!!

Classics Yarn
Cascade 220 100% Peruvian Wool

A long time favorite is Cascade Yarns 220 Peruvian Wool.   This wool is not treated to be machine washable.  Because it is not, it is warm, even when wet. 

 If you ever knit the helmet liners for our service members, you know that Cascade 220 is the #1 suggested yarn for this purpose.  And speaking of classics, does your family have Christmas stockings that have been hanging on the fire place every year for years?   For customers coming in to knit up new stockings for the newest member of the family, it is Cascade 220 that comes closest to the stockings knit 20, 30 or more years ago.  Heirloom stockings are knit in pure, hand wash only, wool. 

Another thing I like about this, is that Cascade keeps this line fresh with new colors every year.  There are over 180 shades, and we have them all!  Unless Cascade snuck one in when our back was turned.  Let me know if we are missing one!

HiKoo Concentric

The "oh, spoil me, please" claim that Concentric can claim is its pure Baby Alpaca.   Because it is multiple plys it has a very lofty feel. This is something you buy just for yourself, or that extra special someone.
