Re-stocked: Handmaiden Sea Silk

seasilk_blog

Just because warmer weather is around the corner doesn’t mean yarn deliveries slow down around here.  In the last couple of weeks we’ve received large orders from Handmaiden, Habu Textiles, Quince & Co., Rowan, Shibui, and Julie Asselin (more on that last one soon!).

Our latest Handmaiden delivery included Sea Silk, Maiden Hair, and Lino. Only Sea Silk is currently available in our online store but Maiden Hair and Lino should be added by the end of the week. Until then, a focus on Sea Silk…🙂

Sea Silk is one of our favourite fingering-weight yarns for shawls and smaller accessories. A lustrous blend of silk and Seacell® – a cellulose based fiber derived from seaweed – Sea Silk has beautiful stitch definition and incredible drape making it a perfect choice for luxurious lace projects. This yarn is especially nice for use in spring and summer.
