Recently, and sadly, a favorite yarn of ours has been discontinued... sigh! Cherry Tree Hill has decided to discontinue the Oceania Yarn! We have just received a batch of it and are happy to offer it to our customers as we know it is a favorite of many of you as well. Why is it a favorite? One gorgeously hand-dyed skein makes a sweater - each skein is 1440 yards and there as the skein is hand-dyed as a giant skein, there is no carrying two yarns with this hand-dyed yarn to complete your project. So get it while we have it... it is the last of the last....

We also have copies of Cheryl Potters Special Little Knits from Just One Skein book that has the gorgeous Never-Ending Shawl which uses only one skein of the Oceania! These out of print books are flying off the shelf and they are a great addition to your collection!
