Just re-stocked: Cocoknits Sweater Care and Blocking Kits!

Our first order flew out of the store so we’re happy to let you know these kits have now been re-stocked! They are currently only available in store but¬†telephone orders are welcome – 514-486-5648.


THE SWEATER CARE KIT

cocoknits_sweater_care_kit1

The Cocoknits Sweater Care Kit contains everything you need for handwashing and blocking your hand-knit items and all of your fine hand-washables. The kit is perfect for:

  • blocking seamless¬†sweaters or accessories which do not require pinning
  • washing and drying seamed sweaters, either hand-knit or store-bought

If you knit mostly scarves, shawls, seamed sweaters and other pin-able items, the Knitter’s Block kit is probably best for you.

To protect surfaces from water, lay the Sweater Care Kit on the Knitter’s Block or other surface not susceptible to water damage. Wash super-absorbent towels in cold water and air dry.

cocoknits_sweater_care_kit3

The Sweater Care Kit includes:

  • two fine mesh, zippered laundry bags (small: 8″ √ó 12 √ó 8″,¬†large: 8″¬†√ó¬†22″¬†√ó¬†8″)
  • one large super-absorbent towel (dimensions¬†36″ √ó¬†60″)
  • one super-absorbent grid towel, inches and centimeters on¬†opposite¬†sides (dimensions 40″¬†√ó¬†40″)
  • one mesh pop-up dryer (dimensions 28″¬†√ó¬†34″ opened, 11″ diameter folded)
  • a bottle of unscented Eucalan wash
  • jute bag (dimensions 15″¬†√ó¬†12″¬†√ó¬†5″)

THE KNITTER’S BLOCK

Everything you need to block your handknits.

  • 18 interlocking, fiber-topped EVA foam tiles, each measures 12″ √ó 12″ (tiles¬†from the new kit are compatible with older Knitter’s Block tiles)
  • 40 stainless steel T-pins
  • 48″ square cotton cloth woven with 1″ square gingham to help measure your finished piece
  • A sturdy jute bag to contain the kit

cocoknits_knitters_block1

What makes Knitter’s Block special?

Very low, lightly barbed pile –¬†fabric covering gently grips your knitting without pilling or leaving fibers

Versatile –¬†can be assembled in a variety of sizes from a square for sweater pieces, a long rectangle for scarves or a triangle for shawls

Thick backing of waterproof EVA –¬†suitable for use on any surface since moisture won‚Äôt seep through, holds pins firmly in place, blocked items dry faster than with towels because the tiles don’t absorb water

Heat resistant –¬†essential for steam blocking

Compact –¬†blocks are stored in a sturdy 14‚ÄĚx14‚ÄĚ bag

Just re-stocked: Shibui Silk Cloud and Pebble!

shibui_clouds

Two exquisite yarns from Shibui Knits were re-stocked last week – just as the weather turned decidedly cooler. ¬†Feast your eyes on Silk Cloud and Pebble! Knit together or alone, these yarns will take¬†any project to the “next level”… ūüôā


Shibui Silk Cloud

shibui_silk_cloud

This weightless yarn shines with radiance. Knit Silk Cloud by itself for an ethereal fabric or strand it with another yarn for a glowing halo.

60% Kid Mohair / 40% Silk
330 yds / 300 m / 25 g
20 sts = 4″ on 7 US / 4.5 mm


Shibui Pebble

shibui_pebble

Light and soft, Pebble is a tweed flecked yarn with complex colors. It easily doubles and triples, gathering depth without effort.

48% Recycled Silk / 36% Fine Merino / 16% Cashmere
224 yds / 205 m / 25 g
25 sts = 4″ on 3 US / 3.25 mm


A little project inspiration….

Here are two projects we’ve knit which combine these two gorgeous yarns.

Groovy

groovy_shibui5

We’ve knit several versions of the the Groovy pattern by JumperCablesKnitting but this one¬†may be our favourite.¬†The Silk Cloud¬†and Pebble¬†were a dream pairing and the finished texture is light, warm, and soft with a delicate halo.¬† The addition of the contrast stripe at the end adds a modern edge to an otherwise ‚Äúquiet‚ÄĚ shawl and the shape of the piece allows it to work as a wrap or scarf.

Click here for more photos and details on our Ravelry project page.


Cirrus

cirrus2

We love everything about the Cirrus pullover by Shellie Anderson Рthe unique shape, the length, the collar. The Silk Cloud lends shimmer while the Pebble provides structure and beautiful drape. From the generous cowl neck to the curve of the hem, there are no sharp angles to this piece.  An elegant topper over a longer blouse or tunic. Soft and warm and light as air.

Just re-stocked: Artfil Belle – including 7 new colours!

frosted-rose

Belle is¬†a perfect sock blend (80% superwash merino wool, 20% nylon) but is also suitable for all your fingering-weight projects¬†‚Ästfrom hats and cowls to shawls and garments.¬†One skein is enough for¬†a pair of socks while two will create a good sized lace shawl.‚Ä® Apart from the obvious quality and vibrant colourways, one of the reasons we love ARTFIL yarn so much is that it is¬†dyed using an eco-friendly process¬†that requires¬†80% less water than any other dyeing method!¬†Machine washable and versatile, ARTFIL yarns are spun and coloured in Quebec, Canada.

Smaller than a glasses case, this travel fuzz remover is compact enough to take anywhere that last minute wardrobe touch-ups are needed. 3 fabric safe edges eliminate pilling while a built-in lint brush dusts away pet hair and dandruff. Keep one in your purse, car, briefcase or desk drawer. Includes 3 fabric-sensitive edges and an integrated lint brush.
