More new yarn?

Oh yes. We hadn’t even dug ourselves out from under the last pile of boxes when four giant (and I mean supersized) boxes arrived from Berroco today – and this was just about a quarter of what I ordered. We have restocked Berroco Seduce, Sox Metallic, Inca Gold, and we’ve received Cuzco, a beautiful 50/50 blend of alpaca and peruvian wool. Knits up at 15 stitches to 4 inches on a size 10 needle. It’s nice and soft, but not too soft – but the best part is how perfectly it felts. Paula was looking for a chunky weight yarn to use for two felted bags. First is this adorable one with cables and bobbles.

and this entrelac bag.

Cuzco is perfect for both because, not only does it felt very cleanly, but the colors are really crisp and the palette is nicely coordinated. Stay tuned for a class on each this fall.
