Just passing this along.

We found out Friday that one of our favorite yarn lines, Colinette, is changing distribution models. Instead of using a "middleman," they're going to be distributing directly to their U.S. stores. Meanwhile, their previous distributor was offering in-stock yarn at a discount.

I immediately jumped on the phone and ordered all the Giotto that we could get our hands on! From Loops Day One, this has been one of our top-selling yarns. The beautiful rayon ribbon knits at about 3 stitches to the inch, and Colinette is masterful at designing contemporary patterns that are super-easy to knit and look great on lots of figure types. Giotto has become a staple for beautiful, beginner sweaters, as well as wraps and scarves.

The distributor must be in a hurry to clean out the warehouse, because we got our shipment of Giotto yesterday! We got lots of longtime favorites plus some gorgeous new colors:

This picture is great but Giotto is really one of those yarns you've got to see in person to appreciate the hand-dyed colors.

Now through June 30th, we are going to pass the savings on by giving our customers 10% off Giotto (including what we already had in stock). We have a full book of free patterns we can offer you, including this "Mermaid" sweater, or we can help you put a shawl together, or you can knit the uber-simple free Wasabi Scarf pattern while watching TV.

Since the Giotto just came in, some of the colors haven't been added to the online store yet, but there are a bunch. Click here to shop Giotto online. We will apply your 10% discount when we process your order.

Also new online are Gina's new "385" pattern, Schaefer Laurel, and Koigu Kersti and KPPPM.

Happy shopping!
