More Yummy, Fuzzy Yarn from Fleece Artist/Handmaiden

I wrote about our new yarn yesterday, but it, mysteriously didn't post--I will try again.  We have more yummy, fuzzy yarns in the shop now (since yesterday).  Brilliant, vivid colors from the Fleece Artist/Handmaiden dyers.  I'm thinking we are going to have a very halo-rich fall and winter--feminine, luxurious garments and accessories knit with O'Paca, Zambezi, Maiden Hair, Goldiehair, Mo, Curlylocks, Peter Rabbit and other beautiful fibres in solids, semi-solids, and varigated colors.  Did you realize you can knit a whole Featherweight Cardigan (Hannah Fettig, available from Ravelry) with only one skein of Zambezi?  I'm almost finished with a free-style shoulder cowl in O'Paca (on a large needle); I'd guess I've got enough yarn left on the ball to knit two more.  All of these yarns are also purrrrfect for blending with a plainer, solid yarn to add some very feminine warmth to a sweater or shawl or shoulder cowl.

Today would be a great day to come see them, before your favourite is gone.  While you are there, try a sample of our delicious Republic of Tea.  Maybe it will be Ginger Peach black tea in the sample pot today (that's my new favourite).
