Sale Sunday: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Do some good for Mother Earth and keep your knitting needles busy this summer with some fantastic recycled yarns from our sale section!

Knitting with recycled fibers often means keeping tons of cast-off garments and fabric scraps out of landfills.  We stock some fabulous recycled yarns like Remix and 2nd Time Cotton but you can also find a few great options in our sale section.

Rowan Purelife Renew is a bulky weight recycled wool blend. Soft and gently flecked, this yarn could be a great option for a cozy winter sweater. We have only one color left, but plenty of it!

Elsebeth Lavold’s Twice Tweed blends cotton, wool and polyamide to make a sturdy aran-weight yarn great for anything from knit jackets to housewares. Some of the girls on staff recommend it specifically for coasters and dish clothes because of it’s unique texture. Get some for only $4.75 a ball!

Riveting (by Kollage Yarns) is a soft and lightweight cotton blend. It could knit up to be a fantastic summer shawl or scarf. Check out the remaining colors here.

Sale Sunday: Luxury for Less

Knitting with luxurious fibers may be priceless, but it doesn’t hurt to get a good price on them either.  Today we feature three sale yarns that are absolutely divine to knit with.

On the left is the lovely Lux, by Alchemy.  A chunky weight blend of wool and silk, Lux has a cable spun texture that adds bounce and lightness.  It is available in 5 stunning hand-dyed colorways.  Grab one for a hat or a couple for a squishy cowl!

Merino Flounce (by Knitting Fever) is a special edition yarn available in a handful of dazzling colorways.  It has an interesting tubular construction that can be knit either at a bulky gauge or through the side (like a ruffle yarn).

Sanctuary is our newest addition to the sale section.  It is a scrumptuous blend of wool and silk and knits up at a DK to sport weight gauge.  It is soft and warm with the perfect amount of drape.  Take a look at the available colorways here!

Sale Sunday: Multis for Baby

Baby season is upon us!  Our customers are hard at work making baby gifts for lucky moms and dads across the Bay.  If you are finding yourself with lots of pregnant friends and family this year, check out some of the new additions to our sale section.

Have some fun with color!  Opt for a variegated or self-striping yarn to whip up some cute baby hats and booties that will be a hit at showers.  As an added bonus, most of our suggestions are machine washable.  Don’t forget, you can always browse our full sale section here.

Cadenza (from Colinette) is a soft DK weight merino wool that is produced in Wales. It is hand dyed in some spectacular colors, but they are going fast!  Only a few options remain.  Grab a skein of this squishy and machine washable yarn to make a quick baby cap.

Jojoland’s Rhythm (on sale for only $4.99!) is a machine washable wool.  It stripes very subtly and is offered in a subdued palette.  It would be darling for a little cardigan or pullover!  At a worsted weight gauge, finding a pattern to match will be a breeze.

Debbie Bliss’s Rialto DK Prints is available in some adorable self-patterning colorways.  It would be ideal for some fun and colorful kids’ socks.  It is made from 100% easy care merino wool.

For a real dose of color therapy, try Mirasol’s Hachito yarn.  There are some bright color options in stock that will suit any personality.  This yarn is a blend of soft merino wool and nylon for durability.  It is the lightest weight out of all our options, knitting up at around 7 stitches per inch.

Happy knitting!

Sale Sunday: Noro!

Noro is one of our best selling brands, so it’s always exciting to snag some at a discount.

Noro comes out with new yarns and colors every season. Sometimes the only way to make room is to send some of our favorites to the sale section. Thankfully we don’t hear Noro fans complaining! On this week’s #SaleSunday we are highlighting a few yarns that you just have to try before they are gone for good.

Mossa is a bulky weight boucle yarn that blends wool, mohair, silk and nylon. Finished products made with this yarn have a unique texture and almost no stitch definition, making it the perfect choice for garter or stockinette stitch garments.

Furin is a worsted weight yarn (made primarily of cotton and silk) that is perfect for a summer shawl or top. There is a gentle gleam in every skein. It stripes subtly with a loosely spun texture.

Haniwa is DK/worsted weight silk yarn in an array of earthy colorways. We think it would be a fantastic choice for a pair of fingerless mitts or a new hat.

There’s more where that came from! View our full selection of Noro yarns (including sale items) and be sure to check out the rest of our sale section.
