Here at the Sheep we are gearing up for spring; in spite of the rain, its easy to be excited when there are so many lovely yarns knittable in the warmer months!

New to the store is the soft and lovely Cloud Cotton from Estelle yarns. This aran weight %100 organic cotton comes in 150 m skeins for just $9! It also happens to knit like a dream (as Sarah mentioned in her post last week). It's available in a lovely selection of colous, 15 to be exact, some of which are undyed...take a look...

Next up on the list of new yarns is a beautiful 80% cotton 20% linen blend from Diamond yarns. It knits to 19 stitches over 4 inches, and has a light-as-air feel that is perfect for the sticky months ahead.

Pictured along with our lovely linen is a 55% cotton 45% viscose blend from Aslan Trends. Class knits to a double knitting weight and has a whopping 220 meters per skein...awesome! The viscose in this yarn gives it a stunning shine, and would knit into a lovely summer lace project...hmmmm....


Last, but certainly not least, is our old friend Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool; a yarn that needs no introduction (can you tell that we're crazy about this stuff?!) 12 new colours just graced the store, and they are begging to be knit into a light sweater for those crisp summer nights. I will be starting one of these soon, as I am the happy owver of two full bags of this lovely stuff!
