So Much Plymouth Yarn!

On Monday, our diligent UPS driver dropped off four huge boxes from Plymouth, each one the size of a coffee table.  Poor guy.  But lucky us!  There is so much good stuff.
First up, the Baby Alpaca Grande shelf is chock full.  I unpacked 23 colors on Monday, and I can't believe Ann managed to get all of these in there.  We have tweeds, hues, hand-dyes, sparkles, and solids.  We have all the goods to make this popular cowl from Loop, too.  I know so many of you have loved this one.

We carried Coffee Beanz a few years back, and we have it in stock again now.  It's bright counterpart, Jelli Beanz, has joined the party, too.  These are great yarns for kid sweaters, hats, and scarves.  I think they would make really nice blankets, too.  The colors are fun, it's machine washable, and the yardage is ample.
Baby Alpaca Aire is new to the shop, and this is going to be popular.  It's a heavy worsted or aran weight, knitting up at 4 stitches per inch on a US9, and each ball contains almost 220 yards of chained alpaca fluffiness, and it is softsoftsoft.
It is really lovely, and the color range is sophisticated and beautiful.  The denimy blue (second from the left) and the reddish orange on the far right are competing to be my favorites.

Stay tuned for more updates from The Shipment that Broke the UPS Man's Back!
