Update on Cascade Clearance
Just a quick update on the status of the Cascade 220 clearance: stock is drastically reduced from where this project started, but a range of colors remain. What does this mean for you? It’s easier to get the additional 5% discount when you buy the remainder of a dye lot, because there are fewer balls/skeins left in each color! It’s 25% off until it’s gone; 30% if you buy what remains in the lot. Right now, it is still on the wall, and easiest to see, but that space will be needed later this week! Limited to stock on hand, and all sales on sale yarn are final.
Next week should bring the arrival of some exciting and long awaited yarns, but in the meantime, there are fun new accessories (and more) in stock for you. It’s been a little while since Firefly Notes wares were available at Yarn Folk, and since then, Sandy has added some really great stitch marker sets to her vintage-themed bags and notions tins. Also freshly unpacked is a shipment of books—from Tin Can Knits, Susan B Anderson, Wooly Wormhead, and more. And last but not least, there are whimsical enamel pins from Nerd Bird Makery. Something fun for evereyone!
Stay tuned for more stripey sock news next week, but for now, enjoy this article from The Guardian highlighting how new imaging tools are allowing scientists at The British Museum to learn more about fragile ancient textiles without requiring any handling that could cause damage. I think it’s likely that these new methods will continue to yield fascinating new information about the history of textiles.
