Spring knitting, and an announcement

15 Mar

This week I’m featuring a yarn that is just right for your spring knitting. But first, an announcement: last year’s success with the yarn truck is a real vote of confidence and now I am faced with all the things that comes from a growing business. So starting with this week’s special, I now must add the 13% Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) to Purlin’ J’s sales. I value your business, and your enthusiasm for Lil Dorothy! This snow has delayed our emergence from hibernation, but you will see an announcement about our first day back on the streets soon.

In the meantime, have a look at this light and drapey yarn from Mirasol in Peru: Sawya.

Sawya is a worsted weight plied yarn that is 60% Pima cotton, 25% alpaca, and 15% silk. Here’s a pattern suggestion, the Scoop Pullover. The silk gives this yarn just enough body to give that front scoop a bit of drape. Or you could make a sweet, yet very on-trend chevron blanket like this one.

And you get more by purchasing Mirasol yarn. By doing so, you are supporting the shepherds, their families and their community, primarily through the Mirasol Boarding school. The Mirasol Boarding school is an elementary school that boards more than 45 area children, and is an initiative of many supporters, including Canada’s own Diamond Yarns.

This week Sawya is $5 a skein! Six colours to choose from (L to R, bottom photo): black, cream, orange, leaf green, cornflower blue, and purple. 85m/50gr.

The Fine Print: To purchase, please send an email to info@purlinjs.ca with your selection and delivery preference (free delivery within Kingston with a minimum purchase of $20 before HST, pick-up from downtown Kingston, or Canada Post [additional charge]). A PayPal invoice will be sent to you. While quantities last! Offer expires 21 March 2014.
