Fiber of the Week - April 14, 2010

You are in for a real treat this week. Coveted Yarn has just started carrying the Yarn Harvest yarns and is proud to be the first shop outside of Austin, Texas to do so. Yarn Harvest buys up 100% wool sweaters wherever they can be found - yard sales, thrift stores, you name it. They then frog the sweaters and wash and clean the yarn with environmentally friendly products. The yarn air dries and then is wound into 126 yard skeins. This recycled wool yarn is on sale for 25% off this week.

Check the website for colors, weights, and number of skeins available in each set. A set comes from one sweater, so plan your project when ordering. The color and weight you order may not be available if you need more later.

The specs:
100% recycled wool
126 yard skeins
Weights available as of 4/14: 4, 5.5, 6, 7, and 8.5 stitches per inch.

These yarns will be on sale until midday, Wednesday April 21.

Don't forget to keep checking the website for unpredictable spring cleaning sales!
