Just Arrived! New Yarns from Berroco, Crystal Palace, and Debbie Bliss.

Jan just released her monthly Bulletin with lots of new yarns and colors for autumn now available at Yarnmarket.

Berroco's introduced Blackstone Tweed Chunky, a gorgeous Italian blend of wool, mohair and angora that's perfect for your bulky-weight knitting and crochet projects. I really think this yarn is going to be a hit this autumn because it's so in tune with the back-to-classics fashion scene. We've got 10 colors in stock for fast delivery, and 16 of the original Blackstone Tweed. Our regular price for these yarns is just $9.35.

Then, building on the immediate success of their machine washable Vintage yarn last fall, Berroco's designers have embraced the fashion trends with Vintage Chunky. Spun as a heavy worsted or aran-weight fiber gem, Vintage Chunky blends the same wool, acrylic and nylon as its skinnier gauge cousin. We've got 24 colors of this yarn in stock, and it's selling for only $6.35 per ball.

If you love these new yarns, you'll want to get the books dedicated to them: Berroco #288: Blackstone Tweed featuring 10 projects full of rustic appeal and Berroco #302: Vintage & Vintage Chunky -- a detail oriented collection of fabulous wardrobe staples. Our regular everyday price for both these books is only $6.85.

The new Glen yarn by Debbie Bliss is sure to become a classic. Superbly crafted in Italy of 30% merino wool, 30% alpaca and 40% acrylic, Glen is a rustic tweed constructed by blending together several complementary shades from the same color family. Glen gives you lovely tonal graduations from dark to light and back again in a single-ply, quick-to-create yarn for all your fast cool-weather knitting & crochet projects. We've got all 12 colors in stock for just $8.85. Debbie's new book Glen has 12 beautiful designs including coats, sweaters, jackets, cardigans, and more. Sizes go up to 2X on some of the projects.

New and notable from Crystal Palace is their Chunky Mochi, a wonderful complement to worsted Mochi Plus and fingering-weight Mini Mochi, the self-striping wonder that started the "mochi" craze. Crafted of the same 80% ultra soft merino wool and 20% durable nylon, Chunky Mochi gives you luscious touch and feel in a quick-to-create option. We've got 14 colors for just $7.80 per ball.

Check out the free patterns featuring this yarn like the Chunky Mochi Easy Broken Rib Scarf, the Chunky Mochi Dragon Ribs Hat, the Chunky Mochi Fan Stitch Scarf and the Chunky Mochi Fingerless Mini-Mitts with more being added soon.

You may not have noticed this, but at Yarnmarket we try to keep our everyday prices low, and we don't provide volume discounts. We've found that by maintaining lower prices on all our merchandise, all our shoppers benefit -- even those who want to buy only one or two skeins at a time.

Of course, if you're looking for big savings, you'll want to visit our BargainYARNS sale site where we put our discontinued lines, special buys, and other deals in addition to our huge selection of value-priced yarns and accessories.
