Soft Sea Wool, We Hardly Knew Ye
We are gathered by the computer screens to mourn the loss of Reynolds Soft Sea Wool. It had a good run here at Rosie's but we must say goodbye. It served its purpose as a yarn that was slightly heavier than Koigu, lending itself to designs for fingering weight as well as for sport. However, it was overlooked while younger, more impressive yarns came in and stole the spotlight. It is survived by Baby Cashmerino, Shepherd Sport, and Alpaca Sox.
Soft Sea Wool shall be missed.
Services will be held at Rosie's Yarn Cellar this Friday-Sunday. There will be a $4 per skein charge for those who would like a keepsake. There is also currently a viewing online.
P.S.: If you're interested in more sale yarn, stop by our Sidewalk Sale this weekend starting Friday, June 25th-Sunday, June 27th. You won't be disappointed!
