Just in from Classic Elite!
Continuing with our new spring line of yarns, we just got this shipment in from Classic Elite. Maybe it's the colors, maybe it's all the Easter candy on sale, but this wall just makes me think of Easter Eggs!
Classic Silk is a sport weight 50% cotton, 30% silk, 20% nylon that comes in a 50 g/135 yard ball. It gets approximately 5 sts/inch on a US 6, and retails for $7.95. (Note from Lorena: I may have to make yet another Green Gable in this yarn!)
Sprout is a chunky weight 100% Organic Cotton that comes in a 100 g/109 yard skein. It gets approximately 3.5 sts/inch on a US 10, and retails for $10.95. The tag recommends machine washing gently, partially machine drying on cool temperatures, and laying flat to finish drying - so this will be great for baby blankets!
Summer Sox is a fingering weight 40% cotton, 40% Superwash Wool, 20% nylon that comes in a 50 g/175 yard ball. It gets approximately 7 sts/inch on a US 1-2, and retails for $9.95. This would be a great yarn for people who don't want to knit summer socks out of 100% wool.
Swing by the shop to feel any of this in person, or give us a call (352.338.7222) if you need more information about it!
