It’s the luminous, super-saturated colors that catch the eye, the tactile delight of the fibers. There is something in the exquisite nature of Alchemy Yarn, where it transcends its use value, with each lovely skein more a work of art for display than simply a functional item. Perhaps in response to this very problem, a new book called Destination Alchemy has just come out and we are pleased to be one of the featured stockists. You can find all the yarns for the patterns at the store, from the truly inventive Silken Straw,
to the decadence of Silk Purse,
and the sublime yarn-marriage of mohair and silk that is Haiku.
We have had a few models from the book on display at the store, with more to come. A truly sensory indulgence!
