We were smiling ear to ear unpacking box after box of beautiful, hand-dyed yarns from Sweet Georgia.  Coming to us from Canada, these intricate colorways are available in Tough Love Sock (a fingering weight superwash 80% Merino Wool 20% Nylon blend), Merino Silk Fine (a fingering to sport weight 50/5o Merino Wool-Silk blend), Superwash Worsted (a washable 100% Merino Wool), and Trinity Worsted (a washable blend of 70% Merino Wool, 20% Cashmere, and 10% Silk).  For your spinning and felting needs, we carry Merino Roving and BFL Roving in the wonderful color blends for which Sweet Georgia is known.

Our collection of Sweet Georgia easily meshes into your future projects.  Sweater? Baby blanket?  Superwash worsted.   Shawls?  Socks?  Tough Love Sock.  Little luxuries?  Trinity Worsted and Merino Silk Fine would be great!  Or make your own yarn using Merino Roving or BFL Roving.
