February is the month! Our annual cotton sale is here and that means any yarn with any amount of cotton content is AT LEAST 20% off, with much deeper discounts on selected yarns. This great sale runs the entire month of February.

Cotton is truly a year round option in Utah: great as a layer in the winter, comfortable in the spring and autumn “shoulder seasons,” and one of cotton’s best features is how it wicks moisture away from the body, causing more rapid evaporation. That means that in the hot summer months, you are actually cooler wearing cotton than if you were wearing nothing at all. And although true, please don’t ask us how we know this. It really wasn’t pretty.
To kick off the cotton sale right we have added some great new yarns to the mix:
ALPICO: 58% baby alpaca, 42% Peruvian pima cotton dk weight. This variegated, textured yarn is simply delicious. Rich, beautiful colors, great cotton slub texture, and a softness that defies description. A simple sweater pattern will look anything but simple in this gorgeous yarn, and will be a treasured part of your wardrobe for many years. Regularly $19.99, just $15.99 in February.

DRIFTER CHUNKY: This is the big brother to the wonderful Drifter fingering weight yarn we carry. 69% premium acrylic, 25% cotton and 6% wool truly makes it the best of all the worlds. It is soft, durable, colorfast and beautiful. Check out the beautiful palette of solids and the exciting self striping fairisle choices. At 170 yds in a 100 gm ball and size 10 needles, you’ll be wearing your project before you know it. And of course… February means this fabulous new yarn is 20% off! $12.99 is the regular price, you get it at $10.39 during the cotton sale.
FINESSE COTTON/SILK: This iswhat dreams are made of… the good kind, not the ones where you wake up screaming… 77% cotton, 23% silk and 100% wonderful. Besides knit and crochet, this lovely, slightly slubby yarn is simply made for weaving lovely things on the Cricket loom. Everybody wins with this delightful yarn. Usually $7.99, on sale at just $6.39 in February.
