New Yarns!!!

We just got in a great new yarn by Tahki Yarns, called Truffles! This is devilishly sumptuous, it's just like candy for the hands. The fiber content is 32% cotton, 30% Viscose, 20% Angora, and 18% Nylon. It would be a great to wear in Fall here in Sonoma County, because with the 32% cotton, you'll never get too hot wearing it. Personally, I think it would be perfect for a cool weather version of the Caitlin Shrug (see class schedule). There is 102 yards per skein and we have it in six great colors (the black is an actual pure black).

We also received in Schaefer Yarn's Nichole yarn in five multi-color ways and three solid colored ways. This is a great sock yarn with 405 yards , with a fiber content of 80% extra-fine superwash merino wool and 20% nylon. In addition we've recently put on our shevles Cascade's Pastaza, a 50/50 llama and wool blend, that's perfect for winter. Plus, we have a whole bunch of new colors of Mission Falls 1824 Cotton.

Hope everyone is enjoying the great change in weather we are having. I know here at Cast Away we are, and it's causing our fingers to start itching for more knitting!
