New Lornas Laces! Honor, Shepherd Sock and Shepherd Wool Top!

Lorna's Laces is a yarn company with a cult following among knitters. The dyers behind this amazing company give discernible attention to detail--the colors are carefully placed on each skein to interact with each other in wonderful ways. We love winding Lorna's Laces into a ball for customers and seeing these skeins of loveliness opened up on the swift--the gradation of colors is just stunning!

Lorna's Laces is most famous for their Shepherd Sock, a beautiful superwash yarn that sock knitters adore. This sock yarn doesn't stay in the store for long!

Lorna's newest addition to their yarn family is Honor, an exquisite alpaca/silk DK weight yarn. We are carrying Honor in tonal, single-hued shades, perfect for pretty garments. Jaime is already casting on for a new cardigan in Ysolda's Red, a color designed for Lorna's Laces by the lovely Ysolda Teague.

Hand-spinners, we are totally thrilled to be carrying Shepherd Wool Top, a superwash, super soft, hand-dyed wool top. The beautiful palettes created in Lorna's dye pots are used to dye these hanks of wool into the same gorgeous colorway that their yarns are known for. Spin them up into sensationally hued and washable yarns of your own design.
