Fiber of the Week - Aug. 27

Summer is softening here on Cape Ann with cool nights for sleeping and lower humidity. Yesterday was the first day of school in Rockport! It's definitely time to think about getting a sweater project on the needles. It's still four months until the holidays, so you won't have to feel guilty about knitting one for yourself, especially with this lovely Louisa Harding yarn at 20% off.

This is the Kashmir DK, a yarn with the warmth of wool, the softness of cashmere, and the structure of microfiber. Due to its chained or braided construction, it will give you good stitch definition. With 26 colors, you could find a great pick for a woman's or child's sweater, a man's hat, or a scarf for anyone. Along with this fiber of the week, we'd like to welcome the Louisa Harding line of yarns to

The specs:

Fiber: 55% Wool 10% Cashmere 35% Microfiber

As usual: this yarn will be on sale until midday Sept 3. If any of the colors you order are not currently in stock, Rob will immediately order them for you. Happy Labor Day, everybody!
