Fiber of the Week - Sept. 22, 2010

We have an entire family of yarn as the fiber of the week this week, and that's only fitting. The Flat Rocks family of yarn is hand-dyed by Rob's sisters Elizabeth and Amanda in Gloucester, MA! We have a multitude of weights available in a myriad of colors (just look at the photo above for a sample.) Please go to the website and check out the colors and weights available. I am seriously in love with the worsted Morning Twilight; I'm usually a bright colors fan, but the Morning Twilight is beautifully subtle. Also, be aware that the superwash yarns are amazingly soft for wool yarns. You could definitely wear the superwash varieties next to the skin. All the yarns are wool or wool/mohair blends.

Remember - these are hand-dyed yarns. Please allow for variations among skeins. You all know the trick to knitting with hand-dyed, right? Alternating skeins every two rows? Sure, you knew that.

All Flat Rocks yarns will be on sale for 20% off until midday, Wednesday, September 29. Have fun during the first week of autumn.
