Just arrived at Yarnmarket: Lang, Polarknit and Debbie Bliss yarns!

Jan's February newsletter has just been released and it contains information about several terrific new yarns and patterns now available at Yarnmarket.

First of all, from Nashua we're delighted to present Nashua Best Foot Forward and Nashua Champlain.

Best Foot Forward by designer Kristin Nicholas is a self-patterning wool blend for lightweight projects. Kristin has designed "Best Foot Forward" to mimic her Fair Isle designs usually knitted in various hues of her Julia yarn. This simple yarn that works up into clever patterns is crafted in Italy of 75% warm wool and 25% snap-back nylon. It's $13.80 for 459 yards.

Nashua Champlain is a 100% wool auto-striping yarn in pretty, muted colors. Perfect for warm weather projects like cardigans, scarfs and mittens. It's $7.35 a ball at Yarnmarket.

We're happy to have added three new Lang yarns to our ever-expanding collection: Lang Gina, Lang Lanalux and Lang Mille Colori Big.

Lang Gina offers the warmth of wool, the halo of mohair & the iridescence of synthetics. It's a chunky-weight gauge for quick-to-create projects for fall/winter/spring. This pretty blend is crafted in Italy. It's just $9.35 for 50 grams.

Lang Lanalux is one of the most interestingly constructed yarns we've seen in some time: a strand of supersoft merino wool encased in a subtly metallic mesh for elegance & sophistication. So soft and supple and spun in ever-versatile worsted weight, this airy yarn is a dream to knit & crochet. Beautifully crafted in Italy of 40% merino extrafine, 32% polyester & 28% nylon, it's available in six colors at just $6.85 a ball.

Lang Mille Colori Big can be knit or crochet on big needles and hooks. It comes in a large 200-gram (7 oz.) ball for fewer ends to finish off, and to get you started, each yarn label even has a free pattern for a chunky ribbed scarf requiring just one ball. A big ball of this bulky beauty is $29.85.

Debbie Bliss Eco Baby is crafted in Italy of 100% organic fairly traded cotton certified by BioRe. This soft yarn, in 16 colors, gives you the same terrific drape and superior stitch definition. It's just $7.85 at Yarnmarket.

From our friends in The Great White North we've received PolarKnit Worsted yarn for just $7.85 for 50 grams. It's available in 7 pretty colors for winter wear.

Be sure to visit Yarnmarket to see these new additions to our inventory of 800 yarns -- in-stock for fast delivery. And don't forget to sign up for our newsletter so you'll be among the first to know about new yarns and patterns.
