Ruffle yarn, ladder yarn, and Zen Yarn Garden

New Ruffling yarns have finally arrived along with some of your previously sold-out favorites!
Kidsilk Creation from Rowan is the newest limited edition arrival on the ruffle roster. This gorgeous yarn is a net, tubular construction made from Kidsilk Haze which is 70% super kid silk Mohair and 30% silk. The colours have been selected from the favourite shades of Kidsilk Haze cream, dewberry, trance, candy girl, jelly and smoke. One hank creates a heavenly scarf for you or a gift.
Katia Triana and Triana Lux are back! This favorite bouncy ruffle is back in stock in limited quantities after a short hiatus. Visit us at the shop for the best selection before is sells out again!
Steven has located ladder (trellis) yarn!  It was not in production for quite awhile, but we always had a supply.  It has recently become quit popular for necklaces or accessory scarves.  Steven has located some vendors that are carrying it again.  We have fabulous colors.  Some even have glitter!
Add this to any yarn to give it that StevenBe touch or make crochet necklaces!  Steven held it with the Misti Chunky Alpaca for a beautiful vest.  Use it with wool and add some extra color to your felted purse!  The necklaces are so popular as they are so easy and fast to make!
Brand new yarn that Steven just had to have is the Serenity from Zen Yarn Garden.  No, this isn't the name of Steven's latest venture.  There is not a knitting spa in the works - Wouldn't Zen Yarn Garage work, though?!  I want to go somewhere, get a facial, take a yoga class, and learn the German Double Cast On all in one place!  Instead,  Zen Yarn Garden is a little yarn company in Canada that produces this delicious blend of cashmere, superwash merino and nylon.  The colors are so fantastic that you have to come in and see them.  My photography is pretty outstanding, but the photo does not do the colors justice.
And, don't forget the Soak!  If you have taken all that time to knit or crochet an item, then you better take good care of it!  Then, pick up your favorite scent of rinse-free wool wash.  Just a teaspoon or so in lukewarm water with your hand knit will block it to perfection or make it look just like new!  There is a new scent that is Lovey!
