It's an exciting week at Coveted Yarns as we welcome Malabrigo to our family of yarns. Malabrigo is famous for its lovely hand-dyed colors and softness of its merino wool. The Worsted by Malabrigo is the fiber of the week at 20% off! I've already called Rob about mine!
Two extra notes about this yarn:
Don't see the color you're looking for? We'll order it for you! Shoot us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember that this is hand-dyed yarn, and as such, has its variations. Malabrigo says, "Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag."

This first skein was dyed using Iced Blue Raspberry Lemonaid Kool Aid and McCormick food coloring in blue and green.
This second skein was dyed using Wilton's Icing Colors in violet, delphinium blue and juniper green.
Because we're only paying $3.95 per skein for this yarn, I feel like I can experiment and if the yarn looks like clown barf when I'm done, no great loss. And the knots don't bother me because I'm a crocheter, and they're pretty easy for us crocheters to deal with.
Thanks to Rob for the use of the shop camera for the photos!

Two more yarns from the always high-quality Mirasol line are also on a big sale! First, it's Hacho, a DK available in 16 colorways.
The other is Chirapa, a sport weight available in 6 colorways. Both yarns are 100% merino wool, hand-dyed in the Peruvian Highlands. Don't forget that a portion of every Mirasol purchase goes to fund a school for the children of the shepherds. These two yarns are 40% off - get them while you can, as these two varieties have been discontinued.
So remember, whichever fiber of the week you purchase this week, you are making a contribution, either by recycling or by helping educate children in Peru!

A gentleman named Jared Flood wrote up this pattern which I found for free on Ravelry. Over 5400 of these scarves have been finished by Ravelers. I find fascinating the different yarns they use: Noro Kureyon, Noro Silk Garden, Noro Taiyo, Noro Iro, the aforementioned Wooly Stripes, and many self-striping sock yarns.

Sock yarn! Sock yarn! Sale extended one more week! Who doesn't love sock yarn? We have two sock yarns for you this week. One is self-striping - that's Supersocke Sortierung 100 by On Line and the other is Supersocke Sortierung 103 by On Line. The Sortierung 100 is a self-striper and the Sortierung 103 is a self-fair isle yarn. Talk about doing all the hard work for you! Please note - these are sport weight yarns, so if you make socks, they will be a little heavier, but will also work up that much faster. The yarn also contains jojoba and aloe vera, making for a softer yarn to be comfy next to the skin. Great yarn to be worn next to the body, so don't just think of this as a sock yarn, it's a very nice all-purpose, machine-washable sport weight. All this for 30% off this week!
