Vintage Knits Update

A Delightful Striping Yarn

Filed under: Vintage Meanderings — sadie @ 6:30 am

We have a new yarn in our clearance section.  This is the remainder of a special order, and a wonderful opportunity to try something new.  We usually do not stock acrylic yarns, but a customer was looking for something easy care for a baby blanket and sweater.  Of course, we obliged, and found one of the nicest acrylic yarns on the market, Marble.

Marble, by James C Brett, is a beautiful multicolored DK weight yarn. This yarn has two piles of different shades spun together. The knitted fabric will have unique bands of striped colors.  

We have to colors available:

Marble MT2 Marble MT1

Marble is very soft, and machine washable.  It comes in 100 gram skeins that have a generous 240 yards.  I have knit scarves for my nephews with Marble, and they love the scarves.  No complaints of itchiness, and the scarves look great after several washes.

Here is what Marble looks like knitted:

The yarn normally sells for $7.00 per skein, and is on sale for $5.25 per skein.  You can find Marble in our clearance section.  Remember to use the coupon code: “clear20” to receive an additional 20% off your order of $50.00 or more of clearance items.
