I'm making a list and checking it twice for yarns that are going on sale. These yarns will be on sale in the store (sorry, not on the website) on the 28th when we reopen after Christmas.

What can you make with Roma (and Roma Weave)? Take a look at this bulky shawl...
Each strand of Sandpiper has five space-dyed shades, giving it highlights and shadows that occur organically as the eight plies interact. These mingling colors add depth and interest, but their similar values mean Sandpiper still shows texture and lace beautifully!
