Buttoned up.

The spring yarns are pouring in as steadily as the rain outside as I write this. Leading the way is a new shipment of Nature Cotton and Patagonia from Araucania Yarns, one of my favorite lines. The beautiful hand-dyed colors and soft texture of this thick-and-thin cotton are just unlike anything else on the market.

The two yarns are interchangeable, mix-and-matchable. Nature Cotton is the semi-solid version, and Patagonia is the variegated. Here are a few new colors we just received. Nature Cotton "Gold" - a golden taupe:

Nature Cotton Dark Teal:

Nature Cotton Earthy Pink:

Patagonia #250:

And Gina's favorite, Patagonia #249:

I think I saw her sneaking out with the Patagonia 249 and this new book from Jenny Watson, Araucania #5 - she's going to make the jacket on the cover I believe:

I went looking around on Ravelry and found this Buttony Sweater in Nature Cotton made by Sam:

...proving that bulky cotton can by very flattering when you use a great pattern with a fitted silhouette.

The new Nature Cotton and Patagonia colors should be online soon, but meanwhile you can shop our great range of existing colors here and here. Get ready for your own personal Spring Fling :)
