new Elann yarns

Elann has started carrying undyed yarn at good prices, as usual for them. I had built up enough Elann dollar credits that I could use them on this order. It's a good deal - I got $53.00 credited on this order so the yarn purchase price was next to nothing.

All of the yarns are lovely but this is my favorite: DK weight Superwash Merino/Cashmere sock yarn. It's so soft and it has nylon in it so it should wear better than other merino/cashmere blends. I can hardly wait to get out the dyes and start playing with this one!

Next up, Blue Faced Leicester, one of my all-time favorite fibers. Hmm, I just tried to find it their website to link it and it's not there. I wonder if that means it's sold out.

And finally, sportweight Superwash Merino.

I had no idea they had that--thank you! I wonder how the one compares to, say, Casbah merino/cashmere/nylon blend.
