Shop Update – Masham and new Striped Sock Yarn

The cold weather seems to have slowed everything down, so I apologize for being tardy with the shop update.  I think you will find it worth the wait!

First I’d like to share a wonderful fiber.  I introduced this to Tiger Club last year, and it was a big hit.  Masham (pronounced Mass – am) is a lovely pale grey-brown color which makes any dyes just pop with depth.  It’s not a skin-close wool, but it is fairly soft and versatile.  I’d perhaps compare it to Shetland.  Snap up these colors, I predict they’ll go fast!

I also have a couple of new striping sock yarns for you. New to the shop are Mississipi Mud on Journey, and Iris on Safari. I am pleased as punch with them.

I’ve also restocked Koi Pond and Autumn Splendor on Journey.

I’m on a mission to dye up all the odds and ends in the supply closet instead of hoarding them for petting :). It’s sort of a debt snowball program for fiber artists! Masham was the first, and this MBT (Merino Bamboo Tussah) was the next to emerge. I had enough for two lovely colors, Hibiscus and Water Lilies. Spin this soft blend from the fold for best results.

I had just enough time to finish up the bump of Mixed BFL (which was the January Club fiber, I’ll have reveal for that tomorrow). Enough for three favorite colors: Cascade, Verdigris, and Purple Passion. I love how the ribbons of natural brown BFL add depth and interest to the colors.

AND, I restocked two popular colors on New England Wool. Out of the Deep, and Water Lilies.
