New Fabrics, New Yarns, New Classes, All New Fun things

Fall is a busy time here at Knit & Bolt. We get lots of new lines of fabric in. New yarns are released into the world. And our instructors also just pack the schedule with fun classes for you all. So that means I have a lot of things to share with you.


New Fabrics

We have new lines from Moda, Blend, and Cotton+Steel

We have Moda’s Metropolis by Basic Grey newly in stock and their Dot Dot Boo Halloween line too.

Blend Fabric’s Boo Bash Halloween line reminds me of my childhood.

The Moonrise fabric is Alexia Abegg’s last Cotton+Steel collection. I’m excited to have all of the fabrics from this witchy fabric line.

Rashida Coleman-Hale’s last line for Cotton+Steel is Akoma. The line was inspired by the Adinkra symbols of the Akan of Ghana and the Gyaman of the Cote d’Ivoire. It is a bold and strong line.


New Yarns

We have new Rasta colors from Malabrigo. A new line Scout from Kelbourne Woolens. And a fun new sample in Cloud9Fibers Bennoto. The sample is

American Scenic Limited Edition Yarn

We recently got in Blue Sky Fibers' new limited edition yarn American Scenic. This yarn is a partnership between Blue Sky Fibers and Tabbethia Haubold, the fiber designer of Long Island Yarn & Farm. They have worked together to come up with a very cool, squishy yarn. The yarn is even spun in a family-run US mill in small batches. And as craft brewers can tell you, small batches are the best.

They have released two patterns that show off this yarn very well. There is the Long Island Cowl that uses 2 skeins and the East Bethel Cap that uses just 1 skein. The blend of 50% US Aplaca, 30% US merino wool and 20% silk will keep you warm and it's so very soft. 

The four colors that the yarn comes in are all in stock at the shop. I have them sitting on the front counter with me. That way I can give them a squeeze during the day. I thought about keeping them all for myself. However, sharing them with all of you and seeing your creations is much more fun.
