Welcome to Hidden River Yarns!
What's New at Hidden River Yarns...
In so many ways, January has been a real heartbreaker. It has however been a great month for new arrivals at the store. HRY is the newest flagship store for Harrisville Designs. I am now carrying three yarns, WATERshed, flyWheel, and TURBINE. These gorgeous tweeds are milled in Harrisville, NH but most importantly they are dyed right here on Main Street at GJ Littlewood and Sons. How cool is that?!? The colors are sublime and complex, as the best tweeds should be.
ITO Yarns have also made their way here. Sensei, which is a beautiful kid mohair and silk, comes in sumptuous little wrapped nuggets and Kinu, a very sophisticated lace-weight tweed on cones. Many of these are in paired colors, so that you can knit them together. There is also a gradient of grays in the Kinu, if that strikes your fancy.
Three Irish Girls has introduced a new base, Adorn Deluxe! A shipment of this beautifully dyed yarn has arrived. Included in the shipment is the striking Supernova that I used in my Great Divide shawl, snatch up a skein while it's still here.
And finally, is Ibis from Quince and Co! This is the same lovely merino and mohair from Texas, but at the other end of the thickness scale. Think chunky and super squishy, just the thing for a cowl to keep you toasty in February!
So, shake off the January blahs and knit yourself something cozy and colorful! That's an order.
Quince and Co's Scarves 2016 Trunk Show is here!
Stop by to see all the lovely scarves, shawls, cowls, and ponchos in person, now through February 19.
