Spinners, take note. If you haven’t had an opportunity to spin up some of Yarn Hollow’s fiber . . . you should. I’ve been admiring it for a long time and finally, I couldn’t resist any longer. It’s been hanging on our roving tree in the store for two years. How ever did I resist that long? This is the skein I made from Rita’s Blue Faced Leicester in the Squittles colorway. I am going to knit it up with a commercial yarn and make a not-too-big shawl. Soon. I will knit it soon. –Joan
Heritage: Your one stop shop for Shetland and Norwegian yarns!
Our selection of Norwegian yarns has expanded! We now have Tumi, a fingering weight alpaca/wool blend that is scrumptious. It will substitute in patters calling for Finullgarn or Spindrift. It is the yarn specified in the current issue of Interweave Knits for the Endless Rose Cowl (which will be a shop sample very soon).
Did you know that we carry the ENTIRE line of Jamieson’s Spindrift–you will find color cards at the link at the top of this page and you will find one to purchase in the Fair Isle knitting book section. We also have Jamieson’s Ultra Lace and their authentic Shetland cobweb yarn.
We carry Rauma Norwegian yarns for sweater and accessory knitting and for weaving, specifically: Strikkegarn, Finullgarn, Prydvevgarn, Tumi, Mitu and a bit of PT5 Sport and Pandora Cotton. Be sure to visit the pattern and book pages to view patterns straight from Norway in both traditional and modern designs.
