Spring's Here!

What better way to welcome Spring than with new yarn?
NEW Florafil is a fluffy, bulky cotton that's made in America.
Florafil combines the softness of roving with the strength of ring-spun cotton.
125 yd, multi-color skeins from American Wildflowers Collection.
Fixation, the stretchy multi-color cotton by Cascade, has been so popular
 that we've added stock in solid colors to coordinate with the multis.
And for the occasional nippy days still ahead, treat your hands
to super soft Alpaca Silk by Blue Sky Alpaca.
Left:  Fixation - 100 yds/50 gm ball
Right:  Alpaca Silk - 146 yds/50 gm hank
Best wishes for a Happy Spring!
