Utahns should be all about knitting/crocheting/weaving with cotton at least half of the time. Why? Because Utah weather is the PERFECT cotton weather at least half of the time! A great go-to layer as we dress for our wide daily Utah temperature swings, and in the hot weather months cotton is our BFFF (Best Fiber Friend Forever!). Cotton wicks moisture away from the body and it evaporates – and cools you - quicker than from bare skin. Add to that it is: machine washable and dryable, 100% hypo-allergenic, and dreamy soft. There are just so many benefits to cotton, and we are about to add another one…

 If it’s cotton, or has cotton in it, it’s AT LEAST 20% OFF in February! From Lizbeth tatting and crochet threads to warp cotton on cones for weavers and everything in between! And to make it even better we have some great new cotton yarns to introduce:

WINDFALL: We named this yarn “Windfall” because that is what it is. We bought, sight unseen, a pallet of cotton yarn from a surplus dealer. We have dyed, knit, crocheted and woven it, machine washed and dryed it and it is fabulous stuff! It is a bulky weight (approx. 350 yds/lb), single ply yarn perfect for so many things! See the samples in the store. The best part? The big, 1 lb. skeins are regularly just $15.00 and they are 20 % off in February making them just $12.00/lb. If you want the entire, undyed cone (approx. 12 lbs) it is only $7.50/lb or during the February cotton sale - $6.00/lb. And when it’s gone it’s gone so take advantage now!

APLAMAYO: Locally made in Pleasant Grove, Utah, these stunning one of a kind pieces are a perfect gift for any yarn aficionado. We have various  sizes and styles, $49.99-$54.99.Another great Jody Long yarn. Worsted weight with 191 yds. in 100 gms, and a blend of 50% organic cotton and 50% baby alpaca, it is dreamy to feel, fun to use and comes in gorgeous colors. We used it to make knitted and crocheted shoes with the great Botties soles, which are also an upcoming class! Regularly just $12.50, get it in February for $9.99!

SEASPUN: 50% cotton, 50% polyester, BUT the polyester is created from plastics cleaned out of the ocean! Really! Knit or crochet something beautiful AND help clean the oceans at the same time! DK weight, machine washable. 50 gm ball and 20% savings in February!

BOZZOLO: Worsted weight, 100% cotton, made in Italy. Great solids and self striping variegated colors. Cable plied with a touch of sheen, and 20% off in February!

We are bidding farewell to our beloved Hava as she and her family are leaving for (literally) greener pastures. They have purchased a farm in Illinois and Wednesday, January 31 is her last day at the store. OF COURSE we will have all the best treats and celebrate all things Hava that day. Please come in and wish her well!
