Celebrate Mom (or yourself) with new classes or a special skein of yarn!

Happy Mothers Day!
We recently received a new shipment of Malabrigo yarn that included a beautiful selection of Susurro, a yarn that you (and your mom) will love! Malabrigo Susurro is a dreamy blend of Mulberry Silk, Merino Wool, and Linen which are spun together to create a yarn that's elegant and as soft as a summer breeze. Each fiber lends its own unique characteristics to the blend, resulting in a yarn that's perfect for lightweight garments and accessories with a beautiful sheen of sophistication and depth of color.
A very popular project for Susurro is Staple Linen Top by Joji Locatelli. This is the perfect basic top for those warm days when your body is calling for something airy and breezy that lets your skin breathe. Its basic shape is timeless and can be dressed up or down. It can even be worn as a vest over a tee or under a blazer or an un-buttoned button-down shirt.
A relaxing project for Susurro is Zester Cowl by Elizabeth Smith. If you are new to knitting, this pattern comes with tutorials and tips on gauge, the stitch pattern and how to read your knitting. This cowl is knit in the round uses larger size needles.

The size and drape of this cowl is perfect for Spring or warmer climates, when you want just a little something around your neck. It’s also a great way to add a little visual interest or pop of color to any outfit!
Another popular (and gorgeous) project that was especially designed for Susurro is Kuutar Tee by Sari Nordlund. 

Kuutar is a Finnish word meaning “the lady of the moon” or “the goddess of moon”. The Kuutar tee is knitted seamlessly top-down starting at the neckband.
