Cotton Fleece from Brown Sheep

You know what I’m getting sick of? My East-Coast friends and family bragging about the gorgeous weather they’re experiencing, while we all find ourselves trying on new rain boots (not that these aren’t the coolest rain boots the world has ever seen, but come on, Mother Nature, give us a BREAK!)…The bright side? It’s been absolute perfect crafting weather. No hot laps from knitting or crocheting with wool here in the Pacific NW.

But, anyway, nice weather will be here soon-ish, and Twisted is getting ready for it by bringing in warm-weather yarns. One of our recent additions is yet another great work-horse yarn from Brown Sheep Company, Cotton Fleece. This year-round, DK to light worsted-weight yarn is a blend of crisp cotton for comfort and merino wool for softness and elasticity. Cotton Fleece produces garments that retain their shape, and is available in a wide range of colors.
