Fiber of the week - July 7, 2010

This week's fiber of the week has a funny name for a terrific yarn. It's Farmhouse Yarn's Lumpy Bumpy. Farmhouse is a new line being carried by Coveted Yarn; we are very excited to be carrying yarn from Connecticut and to celebrate, the Lumpy Bumpy is 25% off this week. It's hand-dyed and each skein is unique. If you decide to do a project with this great yarn that requires more than one skein, it's recommended that you alternate skeins every couple of rows. Check the website for the 79 different colorways available. In an effort to provide our customers with the widest possible selection we offer Farmhouse Yarns' full collection through our website. As a result some colors may need to be special ordered resulting in a slight delay. Please call for availability or with any questions.

And the specs:
99% Merino, 1% Nylon
150 yards,
4 ounces
US 9: 3-4 stitches per inch
Hand wash cool, flat to dry.

This yarn will be on sale until midday, Wednesday July 14 (Bastille Day!)
