NEW Remix Shawls + Stoles + Scarfy Things

You guys have been feeling kinda blah these days – I hear that! Let’s start looking towards spring for inspiration (springspiration). I’m looking forward to the brighter colours, new textures, and the refreshing little changes that a new season brings. We just got our first shipment of Berroco Remix Light, it’s so refreshing to see fun, pretty spring and summer colours!

Speaking of changes, the province may be allowing retail stores to reopen soon, but we are not going to reopen for in-store shopping until I feel comfortable that it’s safe … and I don’t feel that right now. I know it’s a bummer, and the opposite of what your weary heart wants to hear, but in challenging times doing the right thing is rarely the easy thing. Until things shift, we’re here for pick-up, shipping and delivery, and our turnaround for same-day pick-up is usually well under an hour, seven days a week. I know you are chafing at the bit to get in and see everything with your own eyes, but until that’s feasible we’re still here to help you choose the right products by email or phone.

Berroco Remix Light

We just got fresh some fresh spring stock of Berroco Remix Light, a multi-seasonal yarn that’s so comfortable you’ll find the garments made with it become some of your favourites (you know, the one you wear over and over and over again, until you get tired of the colour so you make another in a new colour … etc). It’s super soft, light, breathable, machine washable, and it’s made in France from an eco-friendly blend of 100% recycled fibres.

It’s great for people who are allergic to wool, and light enough for perfect for people whose bodies run warm and wearing a knit is more about dressing and less about warmth. It’s popularity also stems from it’s INCREDIBLE yardage – it’s a DK weight yarn that comes in a 100g/400m skein (for those of you who don’t live in a yarn store, that’s like a bonus 150m to 200m). Remix Light is great for sweaters, tanks, tees, blankets, socks, scarves, shawls, bags, etc. It’s great for everyone: babies, kids, adults. It’s a Double Knitting weight yarn and can be used for any pattern that calls for that (and sometimes you can get away with Sport weight or even some Fingering weight patterns).
