New Arrival: Cortina Nuvole


Skacel Collection: Cortina Nuvole
• 70% Merino Wool - 30% Nylon
• 55 yards per 50 gram ball
• 12 mm (approx. US 17) needles
• Approx. 2.5 sts per inch

Cortina Nuvole is mottled in color. Just like Cortina, it is created with an air-infused nylon core that is encased within fine Merino Wool, making it unimaginably lightweight while still having that great wool feeling. But with Cortina Nuvole the infused core is undyed while the merino surrounding it is colored. The voluminosity of the yarn allows you to knit complex stitch patterns quickly at 2 ½ stitches per inch, without adding extra weight to your garment.


Schulana Crealana 27
Sandy knit this beautiful jacket using the above fiber. For all of you who have been waiting patiently, the yarn has arrived, so stop by today to pick out your color. We have two more additional colors ordered that are on backorder.

New arrivals at YBD


Techno by Blue Sky Alpacas:
68% baby alpaca / 10% extra fine merino / 22% silk
We are excited to announce the arrival of the long awaited Techno. A modern take on 1970’s neon and natural, the line includes seven groovy pop colors perfectly balanced with six granola-lover neutrals. Modern technology makes Techno a feather-weight genius: baby alpaca is blown into a mesh tube of silk for really fast knitting with literally no splitting.


Worsted Cotton by Blue Sky Alpacas:
100% organic cotton
This candy shop of color tempts with an array of sweet treats ranging from rich and creamy neutrals to scrumptious saturated hues. The palette is created with low impact dyes, and a funky twist gives our 100% certified organic cotton a light and lofty hand.


Fine and Sweater by Spud & Chloe:
Fine: Made of superwash 80% wool/20% silk, this sock-weight yarn is ideal for Fair Isle and detailed work—and of course, some pretty fancy footwork.

Sweater: Made of superwash 55% wool/45% organic cotton, it’s a worsted-weight yarn for everybody.


Naturally Soft Merino by MillaMia:
100% extra fine Merino Wool
Its supersoft feel makes it ideal for babies and young children, and the lovely twist on the yarn means that the resulting knitted fabric has a great stitch definition. Produced in Italy.
