It's a bird! It's a plane! Oh snap- it's Kettle-dyed Fino and Socrates!

For everyone who came out to see Jennifer at Stitches East a couple weeks ago, a huge thank you! For those who didn't- that's okay. She brought back some of the kettle-dyed Fino and Socrates she had made up for Stitches!

Here's a few quick shots of the dreamy new colors done by dyer Pat from Yarn Daze.See something you need? Ask for it as your local AWAT retailer or drop me a note at so I can help you get your alpaca fix.

Enjoy and have a wonderful Halloween weekend! This is quite possibly my new favorite blue ever. It's been whispering sweet nothings to me since we met on Tuesday. I'm not normally a pink person, but this pink and purple blend is so dreamy, it makes me want to fill up a swimming pool with it and dive off the deep end.

For your inner Chocoholic-Sockoholic


Some people call this "granny smith". I call it "my new tablecloth"

You can almost smell the lilacs! Actually, our dyer is also a soap maker, so I'm pretty sure this one does smell like lilac soap.

Isn't this great? It's like Salmon and red made a yarn baby.

New Fino Colors

Bright and early Wednesday morning, I went out to the warehouse and saw a bunch of very large boxes. It was my old friend, Fino, and she brought 5 new friends with her! I am thrilled to introduce to you Camel, Aster, Foxglove, Paprika, and Wintergreen.

I also took a few quick pictures (I said quick, not good) of the new colors with some of the old colors in the same family so you can see how the new ones compare to your favorites. You might even have a new favorite- I know I do (I'm talking to you, Aster baby).
