Wool Arrival!

Breaking Wool News: Because I love my w-g readers more than our normal customers, you guys are the first to know. Our big winter shipment of Noro and Debbie Bliss just arrived! We’re now stocked with Kureyon, Silk Garden, Iro, Kochoran, Blossom, and a new one called “Aurora.” We’ve also got Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky (along with the Baby Cashmerino), Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon, more Eki Riva Superbaby Alpaca, Natal, and Casual, and a few other surprises as well. Crap, I should get to work putting these up on the site

  1. Speaking of “wool”, perhaps you can help me. I learned how to crochet washclothes shortly before I left the states. I brought my needle along, but didn’t think to bring any yarn figuring I could better purchase it here. So I told my crafty friends that I was looking for 100% cotton yarn (otherwise the washclothes don’t absorb the water right), and the response is always, “Yarn? Oh, you mean wool.” And I say, “No, I mean cotton… yarn…” Commence with the you’re-crazy looks.

    The only 100% cotton “yarn” I’ve managed to find is so thin… 2-ply, for lack of a proper term, instead of the 4-ply American stuff I’m used to. Does this even exist in Australia or do I need to have my mom export some for me?

  2. I think it’s just a language barrier issue. Most customers in our shop call everything “wool” regardless of what it’s made out of. (Like how people in the Southern U.S. call everything fizzy a “Coke.”) I try to say “yarn” on the website to avoid confusion. We definitely have cotton yarn, in multiple thicknesses too. Check it out. The “ply” issue is problematic because it literally refers to the number of plys that make up the yarn, but in Australia they’ve bastardized it to mean thickness. If you’re just looking for stuff to make wash cloths, that Heirloom is probably the best.
