new – just in!


Yes – these colours really are that bright!  Some might go so far as to call that pink and that yellow part of the neon family!


Uber-soft, this merino wool from Manos del Uruguay is one of my favourites to knit with.  Since last I posted about them a few weeks back we’ve received even more colours!
From left to right : Black, Oxygen, Shocking, Highlighter and Natural


Sea Urchin, Limerick, Ultramarine, Freshwater


Currant, Chrysanthemum, Foil, and Camomile.

Maxima by Manos del Uruguay is a worsted weight yarn with 200m per skein and costs $23 for the hand dyes and $25 for the hand painted skeins (those are the ones with all the radical colour changes).

In my last post I tempted you all with a promise to disclose more about The Knit Cafe’s upcoming Natural Dye Class. Well, I’m pleased to report although you may be sad to hear it, that the August 14/15 class is booked up.  No need to fret, because we can all look forward to a brand new Natural Dye Class next season.  We are busily preparing the Fall/Winter Class schedule and expect to be able to share it with you soon.  Look for the Natural Dye Class and many other wonderful classes besides. Our current class schedule does go into September, to read all about it look HERE.

Craftily yours
