Just Added! Colinette Yarns are at Yarnmarket

We've just added two wonderful Colinette yarns to and we couldn't be happier.

Giotta is a glimmering blend of rayon with soft cotton plus a bit of nylon. This multi-seasonal ribbon yarn features subtle contrasts built around the sheen and matte features of the fibers. Each hank is hand-painted by Welsh artisans and because the various fibers absorb the dyes differently you see subtle differences in the shades of each colorway. There are some gorgeous patterns for this yarn, so be sure to check them out.

Jitterbug by Colinette is made of soft merino spun as a traditional 4-ply, fingering-weight. I'm thinking of making some socks with this because one hank will make a pair that is wearable and durable socks. You might consider a lightweight sweater, scarf or shawl. Like the Giotta yarn, this hand painted. Each hank comes with a free sock pattern attached to the label.

Yarnmarket is continuing to add lots of great new yarns every week. Be sure to check out our site often -- and to sign up for our newsletters -- so you'll know what's new in stock.
