A cascade of Cascade yarns! September 19, 2013 – Posted in: New in Store

It’s true, we love our luxury yarns.  There is little so sublime as a hand-dyed silk and cashmere blend or a silk and alpaca single-ply (I could go on) but we know that these are treats, yarns to be coveted and stashed and used with much thought and deliberation.  For many projects, however, it’s also true that these types of yarns just won’t do. Often it’s best to reach for a natural, hard-wearing alternative that will stand up to frequent use, maintain it’s shape and structure, and won’t break your piggy-bank. Many of Cascade’s yarns fit the bill on all these fronts and we make sure to stock just as many “bread-and-butter” yarns as we do the more luxurious ones. The last few weeks have seen huge deliveries (we had to put up more shelves!) and we are now fully set for fall and winter with:
