new (to me) yarn shops to try!

Don’t you love it when you find an online store with gorgeous yarns that you just have to try?  I’ve got a few on my list to try, have you purchased from any of these?  If so, what do you think of the yarn?

  • Lily Neige – the gradients in particular are lovely!
  • We Love Knitting – the shop is updated frequently because the yarns almost always sell out!  I’ve purchased their 100% Extra Fine Merino 4-Ply Fingering base in the colorway Strawberries and Cream:

  • Norah George – no, I don’t just love this brand because of all the Harry Potter themed yarn colorways (although that doesn’t hurt)!  I want to try the Molly Weasley colorway.
  • Miss Babs – OK so this isn’t quite new but I’ve only tried one yarn and I’d love to try more!  I used 1 skein of Keira in the colorway Blooming Pansies for my Snapdragon Stitch Cowl (free pattern)!

  • Gregoria Fibers – this is another shop that updates regularly due to selling out quickly, and it’s not hard to see why!
  • Hedgehog Fibres – the linked website is just one seller of this brand.  I really love the speckled & variegated colorways!
  • Julie Asselin – these gorgeous yarns are nice — I’ve purchased their Leizu DK yarn in Shiitake from one of Skeincocaine’s weekly Instagram auctions:
