Let's Talk Comfort…..

 When looking for yarns,  we learn to pay close attention to the fibers that we feel most comfortable in. 
No one wants a scratchy sweater. 
As Franklin Habits comic book title says, "It Itches!"

The darling lambs were newly born at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival last week. 
The lazy rams had something to do with that...
 If you are looking for sweet softness in your knitting you may want to choose a blended skien. 

Some of our favorites in the Studio now are 
*Stonehedge Fiber Mills Shepards wool. 
Its 100% wool, but nicely soft. 

*Our Malabrigo yarns made up of merino and silk are really 
stunning. Nothing wears and has memory like wool.  Your knitting and crocheting will look great for years to come in these fibers. 

*Road to China Light is a blend of
camel and silk fibers.
We love this yarn. 
At 16.50 a skein for 159 yards it is a delightful find. 
Bamboo is another great choice for those with allergies or eczema. 
Our silk skeins, are another great option for the sensitive skin folk...

Worsted fibers lie parallel to one another and are softer than woolen fibers.  Pay attention to labels and feel free to ask us about the softness factor when you are yarn shopping. 

The Garden Party shawl in the store is soft due in part to the stockinette stitch design.  Garter is naturally bumpy and that can add a bit of texture that the most sensitive wearer can detect. 

We have many lovely soft yarns for your next winter/fall project. 
Tell us how you feel when you wear your finished garments. 
We are only to happy to help you find the fibers you will feel fantastic wearing! 

After all we are Three Bags Full
