Angel and I are VERY happy with all of our yarn selections. We have new yarns from Berroco for fall with some lovely fiber combinations.
Berroco Catena Yarn is a new bulky yarn you will love the moment you squish the ball. Catena comes in 14 beautiful shades This merino yarn is worked up in a chainette construction to add loftiness and help avoid pilling.
The Mika hat knits in just 2 skeins.
And, I love the Yeva shawl knit with only 3 skeins.
Berroco Quechua is a blend of Merino wool, alpaca, and yak fibers which join together in this sport-weight yarn to create a luscious, light yarn for fall. Quechua provides incredible stitch definition and cozy warmth in everything from sweaters to lacy accessories.
Millefiori BIG is a new, fun yarn. Millefiori Big blends equal parts wool and acrylic in colorful variegated shades to create projects that are fast and fun to knit or crochet.
