Boxes of yarn everywhere

There were a lot of boxes delivered today - nine in total. I got a few unpacked but there is yarn everywhere.

We received our first shipment of yarn from BC Garn.
BC Garn is a family run company established in 1972 that has maintained a high standard of quality for over forty years. BC Garnproducts are always made of natural fibres, often organic, and many are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified.
A typical British Tweed Yarn. Loch Lomond is woolen spun, that means it has a nice volume and at the same time a good long yardage. This results in very light garments. The rustique look with the typical tweed nups inspires you for warm cardigans, real men's sweaters but also for very warm shawls. And last but not least: It is GOTS certfified, that means from sheep to dye stuff, from production to stock keeping and packing, each step is inspected carefully and in line with very strict organic and social standards.


This won't be available online until tomorrow or Friday.

Malabrigo arrived this morning and at the same time a box came in with more pompoms.
Eggplant, Piggy and Hot Pink pompoms. I'm going to make a scarf with the Valentina Rasta and add pompoms to the ends. I think Eggplant but we'll see when I have the scarf finished.

Survivor is on and I need/want to knit. More yarn pictures tomorrow.
