Bloom from Reywa Fibers is a decadently soft yarn, combining Tibetan yak down with Chinese silk, and it comes in a gorgeous palette. This luxurious lace-weight yarn has an irresistible sheen, making it perfect for a little summer knitting! The Treasure Trove shawl is a great first project for anyone wanting to give lace knitting a try with a simple stitch pattern...and it only requires one skein! The pattern is free with purchase of a skein of Reywa's Bloom. Another great single-skeiner is the Mohair Bias cowl; wear this one as a long, endless scarf, or twisted double as a cowl. Light as air, these will fold up to nearly nothing - the perfect piece for travel.
Hill & Dale Collection
We're a huge fan of the newly arrived Hill & Dale project and notions bags! Over the past year we've had them in all sorts of various designs: llamas, bears, bicycles, geometric patterns...but these cottages, well, we just think they're the sweetest! They're 100% cotton and available in a range of sizes, perfect for storing WIPs, supplies and notions. Shop the entire collection here!
The Fair Is in the Air!
It's that time of year! The Tennessee State Fair is coming up soon -- Sept. 8-17. It's not alllll about Ferris wheels and corn dogs (though it is definitely about those too!) -- it's also a great place to take a look at a lot of fiber-related things...the Fair is loaded up with livestock, demonstrations and competitions that are all directly related to the hobby we all love...whether it's knitting, crochet, spinning, quilting, needlework, felting...the list goes on!
We encourage you to enter a Creative Arts category (you can see the list here); the more entries there are, the more people can see how vibrant our community is! Haus of Yarn-ers have done well in the past...help keep the streak alive. Plus, you might win a pretty ribbon!
Time to Make Some Room Around Here!
We're just back from our annual yarn-buying trip and we've got to make some room in the shop for all the new goodies we have on order! If you live locally, you know we usually only have one sale a year: the after-Christmas sale, where any yarns we had decided to phase out over the course of the year unpacked are put on sale at rock-bottom prices. Well, we're gonna do it a bit differently this year! Beginning today, selected yarns are 40% off! The sale will last until it's all gone so be sure to swing by the shop or visit our website while the getting is good -- once it's gone, it's gone.
Happy shopping, y'all!
