New Classic Elite yarns

The first two of four new yarns (new for us, that is) that we'll be carrying from Classic Elite have come in; they are still in boxes but we are getting everything checked in and these should be on the shelves and on the website by the end of the day on Friday (barring any emergencies and/or alien abductions). Meanwhile, here's a sneak peek:
