New Yarns from Tahki Stacy Charles have arrived!
Tahki Malibu is a 100% mercerized cotton yarn with a tape-like, knitted construction, making it airy and light. This means it is perfect for the warmer weather and adds great drape to your finished project.
Tahki Yarns Ripple: Usually when you see mercerized cotton, it’s a smooth texture, but Tahki Ripple is aptly named because of the little ripples along the way.
Tahki Yarns Tandem is sure to put the Spring back in your step. A lovely cotton/viscose blend, TANDEM features a beguiling matte-sheen texture, revealing an inner shine that catches and releases the light. Available in 9 gorgeous multicolors reminiscent of Summer adventures and the bloom of Spring.
Flora from Stacy Charles Fine Yarns is a fine cotton yarn perfect for shimmering warm weather projects. Soft cotton is twisted up with tiny metallic sequins for a smooth refined texture and subtle sparkle .
Stacy Charles Nina is a classic combination of linen and cotton that's a must for the warmer months. With a chainette construction this yarn will work up into lightweight garments that are perfect for layering.
Shop Hop is a month away! Specialty yarn is arriving and the patterns are being test knit! This will be the best year yet!
