New Berroco Yarns and Patterns at Yarnmarket

We've just gotten in another autumn shipment of the most gorgeous yarns from Berroco and I'm in seventh heaven. These are really terrific yarns in colors you'll love for fall.

Building on the excitement of their original Comfort yarn, Berroco has just added Berroco Comfort Heather. This worsted-weight version of the original yarn is completely interchangeable in all Comfort & Comfort Colors patterns. Comfort Heather is a velvety soft 50/50 blend of super fine nylon & super fine acrylic.

Another interchangeable yarn is Pure Merino Chine. This multi-hued version is more than just a variegated alternative: strands of complementary solids have been spun side by side for a sophisticated, subtle marled effect. The end result is a supersoft, machine washable, 100% extrafine Italian merino ideal for women, men, children and even babies. It can be used for patterns for Pure Merino Heather and Pure Merino Nuance.

I think the best news right now is that we've got Norah Gaughan's latest new books in stock! These include Berroco: Norah Gaughan Number 5 and Berroco: Norah Gaughan Men. You'll want to have a look at what Norah has designed for this autumn. It's going to be tough choosing which ones you'll want to create.
