Fiber of the Week - March 31, 2010

This week's fiber of the week is a revelation. I was in the shop on Sunday, and everyone who came in had to stroke it and look at all the colors. The name of the yarn does not do justice to what it is - it's the Sweater Pack by Done Roving. What isit? Three skeins of yarn all handpainted together (we currently have 8 colorways). You get enough in the pack to make a sweater or a lap throw or a whole flock of small projects. At 20% off, you could have a one of a kind sweater that will astonish even other knitters. First the specs and then an announcement:

The specs:

This pack contains 3-- 450 yard skeins of handpainted (all at the same time)

Each skein weighs approximately 8.8 ounces

Or approximately 1-3/4 pounds of yarn total

Bulky weight yarn

50/50 Wool/Nylon

The fiber of the week will be on sale until midday, Wednesday April 7.

And now for the announcement - it's time for spring cleaning (actually, that's what I was doing when I stopped to write the blog.) Rob is spring cleaning in the shop and will be announcing specials at unpredicable intervals over the next two months. He'll be announcing them via Facebook, Twitter, and possibly the Ravelry group. You could also just go to the website and check the sale yarns section. If you go there right now (Wed. Mar.31), Noro Kureyon is 30% off!
