Outside the snow may still be falling but here in the Wab, we are warm and content. Why? Because we have the Zealand Air Chunky to keep us company. Oh my. you haven’t lived until you’ve felt this yarn. A wonderful combination of 40% brushtail possum, 40% Cashmere and 20% mulberry silk. It really does feel as light as air. It’s divine.

But maybe you want to start knitting for the spring. Then allow me to introduce you to Montoya Beach. This yarn is a 100% linen and just perfect for summer tank tops, skirts, boleros and summer shawls. If you haven’t knit with linen it’s time to give it a go. I just love the texture.

And finally, for those who adore the look of hand-painted yarns but hate to hand-wash, we have new shades of Cascade 220 Superwash paints and Cascade Heritage Silk paints sock yarn.

Knitting… with your arms?

It’s spring! (Sort of…) Let’s celebrate with a sale!

Hit up our sale table for some great deals on wool! New additions include neon-tastic Regia Trendpoint Sock Yarn, pastel perfect Turtlepurl Lace, and the light and airy Fame Trend and Fame Paljett!
