Yarn of the Month - March

March Update

Are you a part of the Yarn of the Month Club®  community? 

If not, here's what you're missing out on this month! 😏

This month's yarn is our Twist Sport Weight Silk Yarn in Lucky Clover.

This sport weight yarn is perfect for flowing and drapey creations, such as scarves and shawls. The silky nature of this marled yarn works up so softly, while still showing the definition of your stitches! Our artisans have outdone themselves with this gorgeous pink and green swirl colorway. We think you'll be as excited as we were to receive it.
