Introducing LUMIO yarn.

This innovative hand knitting yarn has a reflective effect in the dark, making it ideal for children, cyclists, joggers, and everyone who wants to keep visible.
The reflective effect is caused by a high-tech component which is plied
together with the yarn.
The yarn label includes a quick to knit ski hat. Here's the shop model. Stop by and see the yarn for yourself.

It just takes one ball for a hat!

We have a new yarn from Lana Grossa
named OPERA.
This is a cotton blend with sequins – just
right when wool is too warm
for the day.

This is designed with the wearer in mind. No
pointed tail in the back to make sitting unconfortable.

Prism Yarn is now dyeing their yarn for Ikat knitting.

Ikat, dyeing is done to for a'pooling pattern to develope when knitting on a Magic Number.
The pattern variations possible are almost endless.
It's fun to do and easy to knit.


Here's our version of Prism's Vogue pattern that is still in progress. We're knitting this in Valhalla, a sumptuously soft fine merino wool and dyed in color Dune. We have it on display in the shop. Just ask us and we'll be glad to show it to you.
