October 2013: Merino Wool Inventory Re-Stocking


4th quarter 2013, estimated arrival 15-18 October 2013

October brings us a major re-stocking in our quarterly inventory order.  Below is a list of the yarns, by name, and assume the format to be skeins unless there is a notation for kilo cones.  We are accepting reservations against the inventory and will create a private order for any reservation request.

Just a word to clarify that the quarterly announcements concern the merino wool line of yarns, merino and blended fibers, only.  Our other main fiber, 100% British Bluefaced Leicester, is handled differently than our merino wool bases, and are ordered weekly from the U.K.  We warehouse the merino wool and merino blended yarns in our own warehouse in the US.

We remind our wholesale customers who submitted an estimate of their needs for fourth quarter that their estimates are not set aside, nor are they reserved in their name.  Estimates sent in response to our Call for Estimates are used to help us order enough inventory to cover the anticipated needs of all customers plus have enough left over to support website sales for the quarter.  If you are ready to turn your estimate into an order/reservation, etc., then send an eMail to and list the yarn by title and quote quantities for your reservation.  We will create a private order for reserved yarns and send it by eMail as we approach the delivery date.

Remember:  an estimate is not a reservation or a private order.
It is up to you to notify us of your wish to be billed for a private order.

New yarns: 4th Quarter 2013:     Silky Single & Quarter Round

Two new yarns join the permanent lineup.

Silky Single:  (80% superwash merino with 20% silk, 438 yards/100 gram skein) Previewed for part of 3rd quarter ’13, Silky Single will be stocked as a permanent addition to our exclusive line.  It is one of the sock weight new yarns of ‘singles construction,’ joining Soft Single and Single Sock HT.  This offers the hand-dye artist a choice of three sock weight ‘singles’ yarns.  Two other ‘singles’ yarns in our line are both DK weight:  Single & Fabulous and Single & Stunning.

80% superwash merino / 20% silk.

80% superwash merino / 20% silk.



Quarter Round:  (100% superwash merino, 438 yards/100 gram skein, 4Ply round yarn).  This is our addition to the multi-plied sock yarns as the third in the category after Sheila’s Sock and Ultra Merino 3Ply.  The difference is in the number of plies and in the twist.  Think of it as looking something like Platinum Sock which will bloom slightly more.  It will not exhibit as much bloom as Ultra Merino 3Ply because of the twist, and it will be nice and round.   Quarter Round fills a hole we did not recognize until recently in the sock yarn list, and we predict it will become a solid workhorse of a yarn for your customers.  A true go-to yarn to count on.
