New Yuri

A new shipment of Yuri in 10 colors is here at L & B Yarn Co. This year round yarn in a sock weight that does so much more than socks, Yuri is made from incredibly soft merino (21 micron) and comes in ten tonally dyed shades. The merino is spun and dyed in Peru and grown in Uruguay, where it is certified to be from woolgrowers that do not practice museling on their sheep. The tone-on-tone dye effect adds a subtle depth to the floral inspired colors. Check out the 8 new patterns in Yuri on Ravelry, just click here!

New Berroco Suede

Berroco has brought back Suede a 100% nylon ribbon. This yarn mimics the softest suede fabric with subtle tonal color variations. Great for baby booties and for projects that use fringe. L & B Yarn Co. is very excited to have this yarn back in the shop after almost 10 years in retirement. Suede has a large catalog of patterns that can be found on the Berroco website, click here. Bitterroot by Amy Palmer is a new pattern that I have my eye on. Click here to take a look!
