At Knit Happens, we try to be as green as possible in making our yarn selections.  To that end we have just received the new Debbie Bliss Eco Cotton.  This yarn was featured in the Spring Summer 2009 Debbie Bliss Magazine.  The yarn is manufactured from organic cotton using nontoxic dyes.  The water for the dyeing process is then recycled into drinkable water.   Read more about it in the magazine.  The yarn is 18 sts per inch on a US size 7 needle.  We have a great color selection from which to choose. 

ALOO Fiber

Also new to our store is Aloo Fiber.  This is a yarn made from the Aloo plant native to Nepal.  The yarn has great exfoliating properties and we have made up a Spa Bath Mit and Washcloth kit.  Available as well is a kit for making a great bag out of this versatile yarn.  We have only purchased a limited quantity of this yarn - so check it out soon.

If you've been in to the store lately, you would have noticed the massive amount of boxes in the back room.  We have finally gone through all of it and it is now on the shelf.  All the Universal Classic (acrylic and wool blend) Worsted and  Chunky, Tapestry, Tweed, solids  and LP, plus Deluxe (100% wool) Worsted and  Chunky, Tapestry, Tweed, LP and solids, are now stocked.  If you have been looking for a particular color it should be here.

New to the store is Nature Cotton by Araucania - a smooth, bulky, thick and thin 100% hand dyed cotton.  Available in 17 beautiful colorways.  Also, Catania, a sport weight cotton and, from Mondial - Cotton Soft Special Baby, a fingering weight 100% cotton.  

A big surprise for Filorosa fans.  After we were told that Filorosa was discontinued, Gedefira located a number of bags for us and they are here.  We only have three colors and a very limited amount of this hugely popular yarn.   When they are gone- they are gone!  So hurry in.

Coming Soon

Malibrigo fans rejoice!  CJ ordered this amazing yarn in worsted and lace weight.  As soon as it is in we will let you know.  


Keeping up with having new models in the store is a time consuming job.  Unfortunately, our staff has more than they can handle right now.  If you are an excellent knitter; have the time and would like to earn some money - come in and see CJ or Mary.  You will want to bring in several samples of your work to demonstrate your ability.  We will supply the pattern and the yarn, you will complete the project in a timely manner.  We will compensate knitters on a per project basis.  For more information email or call us at the store.
