I had a fabulous time at the recent yarn industry (TNNA) trade show. I was dazzled by the abundance of cotton and cotton blend yarns for knitting, crochet and even weaving. There definitely is a trend toward cottons and an emphasis on organic and earth-friendly yarns. Here’s a sneak peek at just some of what’s coming….
New Lago -chainette yarn- from Berroco
I soaked up all the newest trends in fashion for 2012; the change in color palettes; what’s going to be hot and what clever new techniques you just might want to try.
Lago’s color pallet is spectacular!
In the coming months we’ll be adding the newest yarns from Tahki/Stacy Charles, Classic Elite, Berroco, Ecobutterfly and a very exciting new line from Westminster Fiber where you’ll find very affordable cotton and cotton blend yarns in the most interesting color combinations that I’ve ever seen. You won’t find them on their websites until after February 15.
While most manufacturer’s don’t have their new Spring 2012 yarns and patterns on line, I can give you a sneak peek nowwhat’s coming. We will have our new Spring line on our website under What’s New in the next few weeks.
