New Colours

We've had a bit of fun with our shipment of Rockshelter Sock. Someone wasn't paying attention when they filled out the brokerage documents at Meadowcroft Dyeworks and they valued the shipment at over $2,000,000. Yes, you are reading that correctly. Two million dollars. That is either a lot of yarn or very expensive yarn. Things were straightened out today and hopefully the yarn will be here late tomorrow afternoon. The website will be updated tomorrow evening.

My Find Your Fade so far. I'm supremely jealous tonight. Beth has a new iPhone 7. We did picture comparisons and her phone takes better pictures than mine. Whenever I can, I'll be borrowing her phone for photos from now on.

We unpacked some new colours from Sirdar this afternoon.

Sirdar Snuggly Baby Crofter Dk is a gorgeously soft yarn with an incredible Fair Isle colour effect that appears as you knit. Inspired by the gentlest colours of the Scotland Highlands, Snuggly Baby Crofter Dk is the same wonderfully soft blend of 55% nylon and 45% acrylic as Snuggly Dk, and is machine washable and easy care. This yarn will also knit to all Sirdar double knitting baby patterns.

Baby Bamboo has been a favourite for baby and adult knitting since it's release.
Specially developed to be incredibly soft, gentle and smooth for Baby, this yarn is a new blend with natural bamboo and wool fibres. It will keep its quality through gentle machine washing.
If you're ready to start thinking about your summer knitting, two new colours of Sirdar Cotton DK were in the box.

We have created this fabulous cotton double knitting yarn for hand knit and crochet projects – it can be used to create designs for all the family from babies to adults and looks equally gorgeous in projects for the home. The yarn is made using mercerized cotton to create a subtle sheen and incredible stitch definition so it’s the perfect yarn for lace knitting, cables and crochet work. This Cotton DK is a classic double knitting yarn that will knit to all Sirdar’s DK designs and is machine washable.
Now it's time for tea, Love it or List it and Find Your Fade.

Hi Julie,
Is the Meadowcroft a Canadian yarn?
Looks great!
