Yarn Highlight: Golden Fleece

This Just In: Golden Fleece Fibers!
We have three lovely new yarns from this small yarn company, who's all about luxury fiber blends and beautiful hand-dyed colorways. We have a lace weight, a fingering weight, and a sport weight, all of which are really nice, I want some of each!

First up we have Nymph:
From Anacapa Knits

Nymph is their lace weight, made from 60% Seacell, and 40% Silk. Seacell (made from Seaweed... what??!) is soft and drapey, and this lace weight yarn will knit up into the most gorgeous shawls and scarves and other lace projects.

Second, we have Elektra:
From Anacapa Knits
This is their Fingering weight yarn, made with 75% Merino Wool, 20% Nylon, and a little sparkle, how fun is that?! I think I might need to knit myself (or my sister, who loves everything pink and sparkle-y) a pair of socks out of this one!

Last but not least is Atlantis:
From Anacapa Knits
Atlantis is a sport weight, 50/50 blend of Merino Wool and Tencel. Tencel is made from wood pulp, and is similar to Rayon in that it has a nice sheen to it, and magnificent drape and softness. I'd love to make something like the Cedar Leaf Shawlette with this awesome yarn.

So stop by when you get a chance and pet some of these pretty yarns, and while your here, we have Addi Lace Click sets in stock, and Addi Turbo Click sets on their way!

Have a great day, and I hope to see you soon!
