New Yarns - GGH Tara, Lana Grossa Meilenweit Rainbow

I've just unpacked some new yarns from GGH and Lana Grossa.

Tara is a machine washable wool-alternative. This cotton blend is designed to be light and airy -- not dense and heavy like a normal heavy worsted weight cotton.

It's suitable for all seasons and ages, and easily substituted into your favorite patterns.

See GGH Tara Online or feel it in the shop.

Lana Grossa Meilenweit Rainbow is a new sock yarn that I am very excited about.

The long color repeats are beautiful and fun to work with.

It has a very generous yardage (462 yards) and will easily make a large adult pair of socks.

See Meilenweit Rainbow Online or stop by the shop today.

I've also unpacked a fantastic selection of Filati, Filati Infanti, Filati Accessories, and Feltro magazines. If you haven't seen these before, they all feature a extremely high number of beautiful designs, gorgeous photography, and generous variety -- yet maintain a rock bottom price.

They are an absolute value and sure to entice your interest in the Lana Grossa family of yarns.

I have not uploaded these magazines to the online store yet, but please stop by and browse them in the shop.

I need to get back to knitting samples, have a great weekend!
