Two new yarns have landed in the Studio! Both would be perfect for Spring accessories and garments.
Merino Silk Cotton has a slightly nubby almost tweedy appearance. Create stunning lightweight garments and shawls with this CYC#1 (Superfine) yarn.
At first touch you might guess Hand Dyed Heaven is cotton. However, this DK weight yarn is actually 100% nylon. As with any hand dyed yarn, allow for slight variation between each skein.
Merino Silk Cotton
When you blend fibers in a yarn, you get the best properties of each fiber. LB Collection’s Merino Silk Cotton does just that. With 50% merino wool, this CYC 1 superfine weight yarn has merino’s memory and bounce. The 25% cotton gives the yarn softness and breathability, and the 25% silk provides luster and drape. LB Collection’s Merino Silk Cotton comes in 8 heathery colors, from earthy neutrals to on-trend jewel tones. This is the perfect yarn for shawls and lightweight garments, or any project that needs the finest blend of luxury.

Hand Dyed Heaven
Hand-dyed yarns have been the hottest trend on Etsy, Pinterest, Instagram, and at local yarn shops, and their popularity shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. Finally, Lion Brand® has cracked the code of hand-dyed yarns for the mass market. Hand Dyed Heaven is exactly that: hand-dyed. Each unique colorway adds an artisanal touch to knit and crochet projects. The super soft 100% polyamide has the look and feel of the softest merino. Since each hank has been dyed by hand, colors may vary slightly from hank to hank, adding a unique spin to every project.
Hand-dyed yarns can have slight color variations from skein to skein. In order to achieve best results we suggest:
Checking to make sure you have yarns from the same dye-lots.
Buy more than enough yarn for your projects.
To ensure consistency work projects from 2 balls at a time, working 2 rows of one skein and then the other
