New O Wool and a Special Offer!

We are happy to announce the arrival this week of a new yarn in the O-Wool family: O-Wool Legacy Bulky, perfect for quick funky accessories or sweaters you are sure to finish in time for this winter season.
The yarn, like its much-loved cousin, Classic 2-ply, is minimally processed and gets even softer after knitting and washing. Staying true to their goal of providing low impact sustainable products, O-Wool describes this new yarn as one that "refers to the legacy of needlecraft tradition that has been passed on from generation to generation for thousands of years, but it also refers to the legacy of a sustainable environment that we hope to pass down for generations to come. The landscape-inspired color palette is subdued. Legacy Bulky is big and beautiful. It has a lovely, billowy loft but remains sturdy" We agree!!

weight: approx.3.5 oz / 100 g
length: approx. 106 yds / 97 m
needles: 10 - 11 US / 6.0 - 8.0 mm
gauge: 11 - 13 sts = 4” / 10 cm

We carry the full line of Legacy Bulky in the shop, so come in and check it out!
