September 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 Journey Recycled Silk Yarn in Autumn Jubilee.

This yarn is absolutely magnificent! Imagine raw silk blended with bleached silk. What does that create? A rustic-looking yet sophisticated yarn with just the right blend of sheen, strength, and beauty. Shawls, lightweight tops and so many other garments that need structure but some drape.
