Changes, good & not so good.

Hello Fiber Enthusiasts!

As I sit here and think about something witty to say, I sigh, and think what a tough year it has been for everyone. 

Here in my small corner, many changes have occurred.  The biggest change is that, due to various reasons, the Yarn Store is going to be exclusively an on-line store.   For most of you, the Yarn Store has always been your go-to on-line yarn store and that will not change.  But for those in the local area, we had a walk-in business with groups meeting every week.  Loosing two thirds of my staff, has me looking down the road and thinking of which turn, left or right, do I want to go.

I'm in my 33rd year of business and the one thing that won't change is my dedication to the crochet and knitting community.  I'm still seeing yarn reps and still ordering in new yarns and keeping existing popular lines up to date with the newest colors.

With limited staff, if you call and end up with voice mail, please leave a message.  Or if it's a quick question, texting is perfect for me.  In fact, I love seeing your projects.  Text me pictures!!

Text/phone me at 816-461-5505 with any questions​​​​​​ or email me at angelikas@yarn-store.com

Mirasol Yarn - Kancha

Need a change? Something light-hearted? Then you need to lay your eyes on Kancha by Mirasol. This 50% Superfine Merino Lambswool, 50% Cotton, makes a surprisingly light weight fabric.   

Kancha yarn comes in beautiful water color shades. The lambswool and cotton blend creates an airy fabric.  Great for summer garments, wraps and even baby wear.  It has drape and very little body.  So use this feature for sleeveless tops, or short sleeve tops, and of course any shawl or wrap.  But not really suitable for long sweaters or cardigans as the garment tend to lengthen, with the exception of super lacy long garments.  They are lighter weight and the drape is beautiful (see my note at bottom of this article about Yoko Hatta's pattern).  Knit, crocheted or machine knit, it would be good on all.   Our shawl sample is crocheted and used just one hank.   It steam blocks out beautiful, we are very happy the with results. 

The six newest colors are tonals in spring summer shades.  I'm partial to the soft lime green #12, even though it isn't my best color!

By the way, the philosophy behind the Mirasol Project is very simple, the Mirasol Project supports local communities in Peru through the sales of the Mirasol Yarn Collection. By purchasing the Mirasol Yarn Collection you are supporting the shepherds and their families ensuring the continuation of this tradition.

I have seen Kancha in the Cable & Lace Duster, byYoko Hatta.   It worked up amazing!

Cascade Yarns - Heritage Paints

If neither of those strikes your fancy, maybe the gentle colors in the new Paints.  These delicate colors are beautiful on a wool white background.   These shades have been popular not only in socks, but in shawls as well   There are many solids that they can pair to, too.

Cascade Yarns - Heritage Wave

Well, I'm already talking about Heritage.   I might as well not leave out Wave.  This color wave was designed for shawls.   The extremely long color run must last about 150-200 yards.  Projects that do slip stitches with 2 different multi color yarns work up great with Wave.  but if you do socks, you'll end up with 2 different socks.   All in the same color family, but wildly mismatched.

Composition: 75% Superwash Merino Wool / 25% Nylon
Weight: 100 g / 3.5 oz
Approx: 437 yds / 400 m
