Needle Felting Supplies and Indigo Dragonfly

Did you know that The Knit Café carries supplies for felting?  Well we do.
Just take a gander at all these colours! Corriedale wool  roving- ready to be felted up with needle felting needles, or wet felted, or spun, or knit into thrum mittens. The hardest part at this point is picking the colours with so much choice. We sell the fleece in 15 gram amounts for $2.75  which means it is easy to mix and match for smaller projects like needle felted ornaments or thrum for mittens.

I’ve just had a dickens of a time picking out some colours for my next pair of thrum mittens. I am preparing for my Thrum Mitten Class this October. The class is almost full so if you would like to join in the fun, act now!

We also have new recruits from Indigo Dragonfly snuggling in the shelves. Are you familiar with this Ontarian yarn with the very special colour names? You should come in and check them out. You will have a wee chuckle reading the labels with colour names like” Not All Mathletes Are Created Equal” and “Paging Dr. Smart-Ass”. They sure do tickle the funny bone. The yarn doesn’t need the fancy names to be attractive. The colours are sweet and it feels so soft. The 80% merino and 20% nylon blend is terrific for socks however this yarn would also love to be shawls or baby wear.

We also received some fantastically special sport weight yarn from Indigo Dragonfly, but you will have to wait for pics of those, I’m waiting till the light is just right to photograph those sweeties.

Craftily yours
