Last Saturday morning we unveiled a new yarn to our shop.  Leslie and I are so excited to announce that L & B Yarn Co. now carries Blue Moon Fiber Arts the home of Socks that Rock.  We now have BFL Sport, Woobu, Silky Victoria, and Socks that Rock Lightweight.  All of the yarn colors and bases are  beautiful, I took a skein of Woobu home with me on Saturday afternoon and began knitting a lace shawl that I will post when complete and it is going to be lovely and I must say the Woobu is lovely to knit with.

The BFL Sport is 100% Blue Faced Leicester, packaged in large beautiful hand paint hank of 661 yards.

The Woobu is 60% Merino Wool and 40% Bambu, packaged in a soft hand dyed hank of 620 yards.

Manos Lace

Manos Lace isn’t just your typical lace yarn, its composed of baby alpaca for warmth and softness, silk for lustre, and cashmere for pure luxury.  One of many of the Manos yarns we carry in our shop because we believe in quality and love the fact that Manos del Uruguay is a non profit organization which assembles over 400 artisans in cooperatives scattered throughout the countryside of Uruguay.  The Manos Cooperatives were founded in 1968, begun by five women whose goal was to develop economic opportunities for women in a country where there were, and are still, few opportunities for work.  They began modestly, by selling handcrafts at local shops and the annual agricultural show in Montevideo. In time spinning, dyeing, weaving and knitting became the focus of the Coop’s efforts. Initially the “faded”, striated colors of Manos yarn were the result of heating yarn for dyeing in large, iron kettles over wood fires. Over the years, the dying process has been refined to provide consistency of color without losing what has become the trademark stria shading.  In addition to creating yarns for handcrafters, the Manos Cooperatives have continued to produce ready-to-wear pieces for designers and department stores such as Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Nordstrom’s, and Sak’s.  When thinking about what lace weight to use on your next project I highly recommend taking a look at the Manos Lace, you won’t be disappointed.  After all your project deserves awesome yarn!
