Spring brings a desire to rearrange the furniture. We’ve done a little of that.

Spring brings malevolent cold viruses. I can do without that, thanks.

Most importantly, spring has brought us new yarn and fibres.

We recently received a large shipment of Lucy Neatby’s hand-dyed fingering weight Celestial Merino Dream from across the harbour, in all the multicolours and many of the beautiful mottled solids too. This lightweight wool yarn is lovely for lace scarves, and the 300 yards per skein will go a long way.

Lucy also delivered a hefty load of her gorgeous DK weight blue-faced leicester, in giant 225 gram skeins. These are also available in solids or multicolours, and they may not be available for long. This yarn would make a fantastic cozy shawl, for example Ilga Leja’s Lady of the Forest.

A brand new product to The Loop is Tanis Fiber Arts‘ hand-dyed sock yarn. This cushy blend of 80% merino and 20% nylon is perfect for socks, and the multilayered solid colours are truly eye-catching.

Now I really need to get off of this blog and see what else awaits in this box of needle felting fibre and more from Louet, that just arrived this morning …
