Yarn Haul.

One of our local yarn stores in San Diego announced a few weeks ago that they were closing their doors for good. Its always sad to see a local business close, especially one that has been in business for quite a while. The store has a closeout sale going on so I went in to see what was still left as it has been on closeout for a while now.

I was pleased to find great prices on some yarn brands that I have been wanting to try! I picked up a couple skeins of Shibui Knits Silk Cloud (60% Goat-Mohair, 40% silk) in the color ways Pollen and Dusk. Both skeins are richly dyed and gorgeously soft.

I also bought five skeins of Shibui Knits Lunar (60% Wool-Merino, 40% Silk) in Abyss. I am pretty set on knitting a drapey Ranunculus sweater with some of it and then saving the rest in my stash.

Lastly I found that the store carried SweetGeorgia Yarns which I have been wanting to find for some time. I grabbed two skeins of their Bulletproof Sock (50% Wool-Merino, 20% Nylon, 15% Goat-Mohair, 15% Silk) in Basil. This green is unlike anything I have in my stash and very rich and saturated. Plus the yarn is just so so soft.

What are your favorite brands of yarn? Share in a comment! I always love finding a new favorite.
