“Encantados” (Enchanted)  from Malabrigo is a new sock-weight collection inspired by children’s stories! A soft, smoothly-plied, lightweight fingering weight yarn in a range of semi-solid and watercolor multi-colorways, Encantados is 100% merino and treated to make it machine-washable for easy care. The Malabrigo Sock base is one of our favorites for shawls and scarves!

While unpacking this shipment, we couldn't help but notice how some colors paired up perfectly. We immediately thought of Janina Kallio's two color Spotlight Shawl Pattern from Woolenberry. Starting with just two stitches, Spotlight is knit diagonally for a slightly asymmetric triangle. It's a perfect combination of garter stitch, eyelets, stripes and lace.

Shop Encantados HERE! You'll need one skein each of two different colors!

We do have a handful of printed Spotlight patterns in stock HERE, if you'd prefer it digitally, you can find that HERE!



Summer Solstice

Summer Solstice by Juniper Moon is a fantastic sport weight summer tweed. This one is a lovely blend of cotton and linen, making it the perfect choice for a light-weight late-summer tee!

We're plotting a Summer Solstice sample for the store: Willa from designer This. Bird. Knits. Willa is intended to be worn with 5” positive ease, depending on the look you're after. When deciding what size to make, choose a size that is a minimum of 5" larger than what your actual bust measures for a nice and breezy summer top! 

Shop Summer Solstice HERE! We have ten different colors available!

Size 1 (45" bust) requires two skeins, sizes 2-7 (48" up to 71" bust) will require three skeins.

The pattern for the Willa tee is right HERE!
