Knitted Animal Kits!

If you've shopped with us in person, you've probably seen our adorable crocheted Amigurumi display and we're often asked about knitted versions. Ta-da! Meg found some pretty cute kits a few weeks back! You can create lovely cuddly toys with a complete knitting kit from Hardicraft!

These knitted toys not only look super cute, but are also super soft because of the "melange" yarn they utilize. Each kit is packaged with enough Scheepjes Stone Washed yarn to complete your project. Stone Washed is a soft, cotton/acrylic blend that's machine washable.

Each kit contains a multilingual pattern (NL, EN, DU and FR), yarn, safety eyes and the required stuffing. All you need is your own favorite knitting needle (US 2)! 

Sizes vary per kit. Chloe the Rabbit is 9 3/4" tall, Bart the Blowfish is 6 3/4" in diameter, Freek the Elephant is 10 1/2" tall, John the Bear is 9 3/4" tall and Olivia the Octopus is 15" in diameter.

It's Barbie's World; We're Just Living in It

Our Instagram followers got first crack at this fantastic Barbie-inspired Targhee Sock from Oink Pigments - Dream House - on Friday, and they did make quite a dent in it, but we've still got a bit left if you want to drag out your Barbenheimer Weekend!

We've also got five other terrific, vibrant colors of Oink's Targhee Sock as well. Targhee Sock is bouncy and fabulous, and its medium-long staple yarn has excellent strength while still maintaining next-to-skin softness. It'll bloom beautifully with blocking. Grown, processed, & spun in the USA.

In addition, we've got four incredible colors of Oink's little Piglet mini-skeins.

Tuft Woolens Restock!

We love these handy lanolin-rich hand & body balms from Tuft Woolens! They deliver a delightful smelling lotion right where you need it, thanks to the handy applicator. They work similar to a deodorant container: you "dial" it up the product, apply, and then simply pop the lid back on. Made using organic shea and cocoa butters, teamed with lanolin and coconut oil to condition and smooth cuticles and rough patches, and added beeswax keeps moisture where it belongs. We love them!
