New Yarn!

Hello Knitters! 
you may not know it by looking out the window, or listening to weather forecasts... but Spring is here!  and here at the Naked Sheep, that means new yarns!  Over the next few weeks, new yarn will be coming in like crazy!  Here's a look at some of the yarn that came in over the last week.
We've got Noro Silk Garden in tonnes of new colours, as well as a new yarn - Noro Silk Garden 
Light.  It's a DK weight Silk Garden, in new colours, and it looks and feels awesome! I'm already working up a sample for the store in it.  
The Malabrigo laceweight is another new yarn.  It's got over 400 yards in a skein, and the colours are so beautiful and vibrant.  The yarn itself is just as soft and smooshy as the worsted weight Malabrigo.  Lace knitting isn't as hard as it looks, and makes a great summer project.  Also, the Malabrigo is a fantastic deal at $11.95 a skein!  A few projects that would look awesome with it are :

Of course, we also stocked up on other yarns, we've now got full shelves of Baby Bamboo, Merino Superwash DK, and Baby Cashmerino, and a lot of new colours of Araucania Patagoina - A bulky weight hand-dyed cotton. We've also got a great sweater pattern using it as well!
and... today we just got in a lot of Cascade 220... An aran weight 100% feltable wool great for sweaters, felting projects, hats, mitts... anything!  

Well, that's about it for this sneak peek, be sure to stop by soon to see all these yarns!
