New Base Yarn Has Landed!

As if Fridays aren't good enough already... our new base yarn completed it's long journey and arrived in our warehouse today!!!

This exclusive new fingering weight blend is 50% FS Alpaca/30% Fine Merino (22.5 um)/20% Lyocell (Tencel). It’s a 4-ply yarn, and is just slightly lighter weight than our original Sock-aholic. Best of all, it is VERY soft :-) It’s going to make great socks, shawls, scarves, and gloves! Each 100g skein will contain approximately 480 yards of yarny goodness.

We now have a ton of work to do to get it dyed and photographed and ready to launch, but I expect we’ll be ready to launch in April :-) Stay tuned!
