Happy Holidays!

We love hand-dyed yarns, and look what just arrived:
L-R:  Maxima by Manos; new Diamond Lake by Alexandra’s Crafts.
Heather can’t stop hugging the new Manos Maxima, a SOFTmerino worsted.
Alexandra’s Diamond Lake is a fingering weight merino/Tussah silk blend.
Silk saturates with dye like no other fiber–gorgeous!

With needles flying fast and furious in short rows,
Vivian made a Turbulence Cowl in Eco Duo and Highland Duo:

 

Please join us in welcoming Caroline, the newest member of our Tangled Purls team.

Thick and Thin!

 
In a hurry to make a holiday gift? Thicker yarns work up faster. 
‘Heirloom Deluxe Tweed’ is a single ply super bulky (6) yarn from Universal. 
We have it in soft, tweedy multi-colors. (90% wool and 10% acrylic/viscose)
 
If thinner yarns appeal to you, socks make great gifts!
We now have Black Trillium’s ‘Pebble Sock’ yarn (100% superwash merino).
Exquisite handpainted colors.
L-R:  ‘Heirloom Deluxe Tweed’; Black Trillium ‘Pebble Sock’.
 

Hats!

Hats are for everyone.
They keep your head (and ears) warm on chilly days.
They make great gifts for the holidays–or any time of year.
They’re quick and easy to make, no matter your skill level.
 
Some hats are very special.
If you enjoy making hats, consider also making some for Calvin’s Hats,
a local charity that provides tiny hats to parents mourning a baby that didn’t survive.    
Calvin’s Hats take only an hour to make.  Ask us how you can help.
