New Colors, Colors, Colors! Hot New Cool T-Shirts and Quick and Easy Mittens for Summer Projects at the Yarn and Fiber Company!
Guess what we just realized! The new and lovely silk and wool Ivy Brambles Desire works up great for chunky mittens. AND.... each skein makes two PAIRS of mittens.
These mittens work up in hours and are perfect for gift giving! They are fun, funky and warm while giving you a small project to work on during the summer months! Check them out in Petunias! Very pretty and irresistible! New colors have been added to the line - including Petunias, Sunrise, and Dayglow! Spectacular! And the Ivy Brambles Super Bulky Mitten Pattern is the perfect pattern for these fantastic mittens!
Enjoy all the beautiful colors and always be happy with your projects! Happy Fibering!

What's New, What's Discontinued and Congrats to our newest winner Julie for the Yarn and Fiber Prize Giveaway!
New, New, New!!!!
Ivy Brambles Romantica Yarn has added a medly of beautiful colorways! New colors of this yarn include Holly, Tulips, Day Glow, Summer Meadow, Spring Meadow, Forest Trail and the new Spring 2010 colorways of Dark Nebula and Wildflowers is now out - in the Sockscene as well! Enjoy!
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!
Congratulations Julie N of Vermont! Julie is our most recent winner of the Yarn and Fiber Company Prize Giveaway!
Julie won a Knitting with Friends Tote Bag as well as a Hyacinth Scarf Pattern with a skein of the soft Ivy Brambles 4-ply Cashmere in Fire Red!
Julie lives in Northwest Vermont with her great husband, 2 fabulous little kids and lots of yarn and books. She's a yoga therapist who loves knitting socks and is currently on a shawl making binge! When she isn't knitting, she can be found doing yoga and drinking coffee - just not at the same time.
Enjoy your prize Julie!
