Hello yarn pals! Gobble, gobble! Hope everyone ejoyed their Thanksgiving. We have lots to be thankful for here at Monarch. We have a great staff of beautiful, friendly, helpful ladies. We’re keeping busy, busy with all of our wonderful customers (you guys!!), and getting in lots of new tantalizing yarns! Can’t get much better that that! This week we are featuring a brand new yarn line that includes 4 new fabulous yarns!!
Monarch welcomes Grignasco Knits! Grignasco Knits is a Italian yarn company (located in Grignasco Novara, Italy) that has been making beautiful, high quailty yarns since the late 1800’s! Whew! To this day Grigansco Knits takes great pride in choosing only the highest quality fibers, and creating beautiful, Italian style fashion designs for stunning hand knits.
Let’s get to the yarn sharing shall we?! First of our 4 beautiful new Grignasco yarns is (my new fav) “Loden”
|Loden $9.95 per ball - 120 yards|
Oh boy! A new tweed! Gotta love those tweeds! Loden is a worsted weight, gorgeous tweed that is a blend of Virgin Wool, Alpaca, and Viscose. Look at these colors!! Yum! You almost wanna get ‘em up...but I would try to refrain from gobbling up the yarns. They are better to knit, trust me ;)
Next up, a new Superwash Merino worsted weight, MerinoGold 8!
|MerinoGold 8 $10.99 - 98 yards|
MerinoGold is an extra fine Merino Wool, which makes it super, duper soft! It has a very smooth, squishy feel, with a bit of a shine to it. That must be why it has “gold” in the name! Again, a nice range of yummy colors here, and don’t forget....it’s a Superwash! For your convenience, pop it in the washing machine. This yarn is such a delight to have run through your fingers! Everything you knit will surely turn to Merino ”Gold”.
When celebrating a special occasion, some people might pop open a bottle of Champagne. How about knitting with it instead?!
|Champagne $12.99 - 180 yards|
“Champagne” is a fingering weight Merino Wool & Silk with a luxurious feel. Champagne would be just perfect for those next-to-the-skin knits! It’s extra soft & dreamy to knit, and yes it’s washible too! This yarn will, no doubt, make stunning knits we can all celebrate about!
Our last little pretty is another extrafine Merino & Silk blend, but in a lovey laceweight! “MerinoSilk 25”!
|Merinosilk 25 $6.50 - 384 yards|
This extra fine, extra soft lace is perfect for all your delicate little knits. Beautiful, award winning shawls, or elegant scarves that will be cherished for years to come! ;) We have a sweet little lacey scarf pattern to share with you when you purchase just one of these pretty babies.
Delicate little leaves knitted right in! Not an impossible knit...you too can knit and wear this little accessory in time for the holidays! Or give to someone very special ;)
There it is folks! Our brand new line! You must come in and take a look/feel! These yarns are great for all kinds of knits. Starting this weekend, we will also be featuring a Grignasco Knits Trunkshow!! Come in and get inspired by many knitted samples using all the yarns we just shared! All patterns featured in this trunkshow are from Grignasco Knits booklets and are available for purchase! Knit your own little piece of Italy!
Lots more to come this holiday season! Stay tuned....
