Spring is in the Air!

The shop is overflowing with color and change is in the air! We’ve made a change to our Knit Night schedule starting in April in order to make room for a new series of evening classes! Due to popular demand, the first and third Thursday of the month we will have classes from 5-7 PM; Knit Night will now be held on the second and fourth Thursdays.

We’ve been unpacking loads of new yarns to tempt and inspire this spring. Here are a few of our new additions…


Malabrigo Sock!


Malabrigo Silky Merino


Malabrigo Rios


Ambiente Self-Patterning Sock Yarn (looks like fairisle without the work!)


A few of our new colors of Simplinatural — Incredibly soft!


New colors of Sueño by Hikoo (superwash merino and bamboo blend)


Rylie by Hikoo: a gorgeous blend of alpaca, silk and linen that has beautiful sheen and drape.

What’s on your needles for spring?

Spring Spring Spring

We are so thrilled with the sunshine and blooming flowers! Spring in the Pacific Northwest is so lovely, isn’t it? Then again, we are lucky to live in an area that is beautiful year round.

Tangled Purls is all about bright, fresh, fun color and creative ideas to inspire you. We are bringing out new samples, and have lots of beautiful new yarns on their way to the shop for spring.

mad hatter

We’re excited about lightweight yarns for spring, like these fun Mad Hatter shades from Frabjous Fibers & Wonderland Yarns. Soft, airy and superwash — what more could you want for spring?

tatting thread

Remember that we have lots of playful shades of thread for tatting — come try your hand at a new hobby!

Shibui Twig

Shibui Twig is another great lightweight yarn for spring. It has a lovely texture and sheen and softens beautifully when blocked.

Cobasi DK

Cobasi DK is is perfect for warmer weather– this bouncy blend of cotton, bamboo, silk and elastic is a great choice for summer tees.

naked bee

We also recently re-stocked our supply of Naked Bee lotions, soaps, balms and salves. These lovely products are a staff and customer favorite!

Come see us this week for fiber inspiration, sign up for a class, or find your next favorite project. Don’t forget: Stitch Doctor is every Tuesday from 11:15 – 12:45 and costs just $10 (cash or check paid directly to the teacher). It’s a great way to get extra help when you’re stuck.

Happy stitching!
