Filatura Di Crosa Brings Fun & Funky to New Scarf Yarn

Kiss Kiss Pucker Up Scarf

 
Pucker Up Scarf  
Looking at the brand-new yarns we've added to our collection this week, we've just received another fun new option from Filatura Di Crosa that once again demonstrates how cutting edge these Italian mills can make trendy scarf yarns.

For fun, funky accessories and trims, take a peek at Kiss Kiss yarn from Filatura. Innovatively styled in Italy from 65% acrylic, 20% wool & 15% polyester, "Kiss Kiss" will give you fast results with all the scarves, shawls and more you'll love to knit & crochet. Constructed as a narrow ladder yarn, "Kiss Kiss" has incredible texture and softness with its curving mini-boucle tendrils suspended from the base strand. And we love how squishy and velvety the tendrils feel up against our skin.

And, of course, we can rely on the talented team of Filatura designers to demonstrate for us how beautifully "Kiss Kiss" looks when knitted up. Just take a peek at the fabulous Pucker Up Scarf, and you'll see what we mean. Sensationally crafted from just one hank of "Kiss Kiss," this fun piece of neckwear will be a standout when teamed with your favorite jacket, coat or cardigan.



Another New Scarf Yarn Is Wonderful Enhancement of the FDC Collection

Rumba Dancing Queen Scarf

 
Dancing Queen Scarf  
All fall we've been adding terrific new yarn gems to our Fab Scarf Yarns department, and this coming month is no exception.

We're particularly excited that for this issue of the newsletter, we have a second new scarf yarn to introduce from Filatura Di Crosa.

As part of the scarf yarn craze lately, the aficionados at Italian powerhouse Filatura Di Crosa have created fun Rumba yarn. Designed as a railroad ladder yarn with varying sizes of loops, boucle "Rumba" gives you plenty of texture, pizzazz & color no matter what you're knitting or crocheting. It's ideal for clever scarves & shawls, so give your imagination free rein and use "Rumba" as trim on your favorite casual jacket or top too.

When you want to see just how sensationally "Rumba" works up, discover the beauty of what you can create with just one hank in the Dancing Queen Scarf. This quick & easy project even starts with a free pattern you can download and print yourself. Whether you're dancing in this beauty or just shopping at the mall, you'll definitely stand out in a crowd and be reeling in the compliments we guarantee!



Stacy Charles Introduces the First of His New "Diva" Trio Just in Time for the Holidays

Celine & Luna Elodie Mesh Pullover

 
Elodie Mesh Pullover  
Yarn aficionado Stacy Charles is known throughout the industry for his sense of style and for having his finger on the pulse of the latest trends and upcoming fashions worldwide. So when Stacy decided to enhance his S. Charles Yarn Collezione by adding a special new diva-inspired trio, we knew that he was developing something truly extraordinary.

Celine Suzette Tubular Necklace

 
Celine Necklace  
The opening release of the trio is Celine yarn, and it is truly exquisite. "Celine" gives knitters and crocheters a shimmering, sparkling blend of 60% rayon & 40% supple Sinflex polyester metallic. The end result is an Italian wonder that you can use single stranded as a fingering-weight option or double-stranded as a DK blend. Either way we know you'll love the drape, elegance and sophistication of "Celine" in tops, scarves, shawls and other types of dressy outfits and eveningwear.

Now you may already have a collection of your favorite lightweight patterns for accessories, tops and more. But we highly recommend that you check what Stacy Charles has developed as special creations designed exclusively for the drape and sparkle of "Celine." His divine Soiree Fall/Winter 2012 pattern booklet is filled with exquisite yet wearable styles to provide ample inspiration for your next project.

We know you'll want to browse through all of the designs, but our "Celine" favorites include the simply stunning Celine & Luna Elodie Mesh Pullover with its flattering open weave styling, the feminine Brigitte Top sized from Small to 3X plus the whimsical Alice Ruffled Wristlets.

And from jewelry designer Andi Javori comes a free pattern that knits up into the simply stunning Celine Suzette Tubular Necklace that our fingers are itching to try!
