Blue Moon Is In the House!


We had to show you our wonderful assortment of Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarns on display. We don't sell it online, so you'll want to come into the shop and have at it!

Here's some of our Icelandic 100% Australian wool, hand-dyed and gorgeous. The Think Big Cowl on the mannequin is a quick knit from Vogue Knitting International, the Holiday 2009 issue.

Above is pictured just one spectrum of colors we have in shimmery Silk Loops, a blend of 54% Kidmo (mohair/nylon), 26% silk, 15% wool and 5% nylon. If texture is what you're looking for, you'll be thrilled with this. We love it combined with ThickieThin (see below) for the ultimate in textural contrast.

Above: ThickieThin, 100% wool ultra-slubby yarn
and one of a trio of
Family Hats that Nell whipped up
to show off this fun fiber.

Below: Luscious Single Silk, a 50/50 blend of Merino and Silk
is a single strand of soft
worsted weight, spun just enough to make it yarn.
