New Yarns and Fibers to fuel your imagination!

Introducing Cedar Creek:  a Superwash Blue Face Leicester wool yarn. This 3 ply  yarn has been spun to the same specs as the La Grande, one of our longest running yarn bases. The gauge on this fingering weight yarn is 6-7 sts/in knit on US needle size 0-2. The luster of this yarn is intensified in the dye pot creating unsurpassed color.   This yarn is available on approximately 3.4 lb cones.

Introducing Umpqua Yarn:  75% Superwash merino / 15%nylon / 10% tencel sock yarn. We have had this yarn for about a month, but we don’t feel that it received a proper introduction! This 4 ply yarn has been spun to the same specs as our Clackamas yarn. Umpqua has a nice twist for strength and durability and shows great stitch definition for cables and bobbles. The nylon adds additional elasticity for a great fit on foot and calf. This yarn is available on approximately 3.4 lb cones.

Just a side note: Although the Umpqua is a beautiful river in Oregon, we think of it fondly as the Rice Hill exit on I-5 with the 64 flavors of Umpqua Ice cream. Those who travel on I-5 know what we are talking about!

We want to remind you about our newest fiber special

Yak/cultivated silk (50/50)– This top is beautifully prepared for easy spinning.

The blend on the left is the yak/silk and the blend on the right is the cashmere/silk. Think of the possibilities in dyeing and combing these 2 blends into one fabulous yarn or garment.
