New Products

These products are the latest addition to our store.

testing, testing

these yarns are test skeins for new colourways which, for whatever reason, didn't make it through the "audition process".  maybe they just didn't work out the way they were meant to, or they ended up too similar to a colourway already in stock.  the skeins are not flawed, but are being sold at a discounted rate in order to clear out some space for even more new-colourway-tests!!

whoops... my mistake!!

yarns in this category are either "seconds" (they may have breaks or knots, or have suffered a dyeing mishap of one kind or another) or they are colourways which have now been discontinued. all of them are offered at a discounted price, and if they are flawed, this will be clearly listed in the yarn description.
