New In: Classic Elite

Our first new inventory of the new year comes from Classic Elite, a popular brand here at Wild Fibre. We have restocked a couple favorites and are also trying some new.

First up is Magnolia, a 70/30 dk weight merino and silk single ply blend with a great hand and excellent stitch definition.

We’ve also added in more Toboggan, a favorite of ours that’s already selling out quickly. This beautiful chunky weight is a 70/30 blend of merino and superfine alpaca, making it pleasantly soft and cozy. What’s best is that we now have it in practically every color!

Our first new yarn is La Gran, a chunky mohair, wool, and nylon blend produced exclusively for Classic Elite.

Finally, our new obsession, Inca Alpaca. This worsted weight pure alpaca is so soft we just had to have it in as many colors possible.

The Christmas Rush; or Anzula!!

Now if you’re like me, you’ve probably just realized Christmas is exactly three weeks away. That’s only fifteen working days, people! If you hadn’t realized this, you’re welcome. Luckily, this happens to coincide with the recent arrival of Anzula into the shop.

Anzula yarns, shipped fresh from California, are hand dyed and spun from some crazy luxurious fibers such as cashmere, silk, sea cell, and alpaca. Of their sixteen lines, we now carry the cleverly titled “For better or worsted” and the aptly titled “Squishy.” Both are 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, and 10% Nylon. And both are absolutely perfect for last minute gifts. These yarns have yardage in the hundreds, great for multiple presents right off the bat.

Take Squishy, for example. At about 385 yards per hank, two perfectly slouchy Excess hats (free ravelry download here!) are a breeze in this smooth plied fingering weight.

Or for the more ambitious, there’s the Celestarium shawl. Paige and I have been obsessing over this beaded view of the North Pole for weeks, and to my glee Ravelry user BSR123 has a perfect reproduction of it in Anzula Squishy. While her take is in the Elephant, I personally think it could look quite stunning in Teal (pattern for purchase here).

But let’s not forget For Better or Worsted. Not only am I a sucker for worsted weight yarn, but I love love a good kettle dyed yarn, and Anzula does not disappoint. The slight variegations in color call for simple stitches, allowing this yarn to shine. And is that not convenient for fast gift making?

Try a Drop Stitch Scarf, seen here in Country Green (free ravelry download here), or a Fisherman Rib Cowl by Wild Fibre favorite Purl Soho (ravelry link here).

If you’re a hat person, the ever popular Molly, previously mentioned in our Madeline Tosh post calls for exactly one hank of For Better or Worsted, which is exactly why a few of my friends should not be surprised if they find this particular hat under their tree come Christmas morning!

SO. If you’re like me, now is the time to get a move on! Come see us, we’ve got everything you need (including Anzula!) for beautiful, hand made (and easy!) gifts.

Cheers!
