View Full Version : KnitPicks: New yarns

10-20-2006, 06:40 PM
So how long have they had these? I haven't heard or seen anything about them until I just was surfing the site (no email, no catalog yet). Makes me wonder what else am I missing?

whole yarn list (http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Yarn_List.aspx) (with new on top)

Salishan - 45% wool/55% pima cotton, DK weight

Totem - 50% wool/50% viscose, DK weight

Wakashan - 100% baby alpaca

They're all that "Sale" yarn that seems to be their way to post novelty yarns. Am I crazy or are those new?

Those look new to me. I can't see the sample picture. :??

yeah, a lot of pics weren't loading for me... maybe they're really new (pages having bugs and not fixed yet?).

Yep, they're new... and it says "LIMITED QUANTITIES" when you click on them, so perhaps they're a sample run or a run off... :shrug:

Also, the Wakashawn sample pictures are labled "Quinalt" when you click on them - perhaps they're having an identity crisis? :chair:

If you click the name you can see what it looks like. They all look about the same to me. :shrug:

feministmama says she got a new catalog in the mail tonight. So maybe those will have more accurate pics.

Is it me? Or is it hard to see the colors of those new yarns because of the white background.... I feel like i'm looking at test patterns...

They're not in the newest catalogue that i can see...

Oops, my bad, I didn't see this post, I just posted about it, too! I knew it was time for new yarns, Kelley hinted about it and knitpicks site was acting hinky a few days ago, always a sure sign new stuff is being put up :wink:
