I have been going through box after box of new arrivals which is a hard task when I want to play with every single needle, hook, and yarn I touch. I am so pleased to announce these new additions to Yarn Loop! The simplest way to see all of these new items is to click New right here or on the website.
Our first new supplier is addi, the German manufacturer of needles and hooks. Addi is a company I have been impressed with for years, mainly because I love the addiClick system! I am notorious for unscrewing interchangeable needles even if I use grips or keys, and I always end up fishing my stitches back to the re-assembled needles. With addiClick lines, there is a spring mechanism that must be depressed to remove the needle, and since the cable and needles are always in tension when working, it simply cannot disconnect.
I could go on and on about their products, but I will simply conclude with this; addi has a lifetime guarantee on all of their needles and hooks against defect. Yarn Loop is an authorized dealer of addi, and will procure anything your heart desires from this wonderful company.
addi has also designed 2 incredible crochet hook sets called the addiSwing and the addiColours. The addiSwing set is ergonomically designed to fit into your hand whether you use a knife grip or a pencil grip. The addiColours set has a longer throat and handle than the addiSwings which may be more comfortable for taller people (with bigger hands) or people with very loose tension.
addiClick Olive Wood Set
Please note that addi Olive Wood will be arriving shortly! Because of its popularity, it is backordered at the importer. Yarn Loop has a limited supply on its way, so if you want to treat a loved one (or yourself) to this beautiful needle set, do not delay. I doubt it will be in stock at Christmas.
Cascade Yarns first shipment is full of wonderful, lovely yarns ranging from Sport Weight to Jumbo Weight yarns. This wonderful company is a staple in every yarn shop in the country because of their great prices and larger skeins. I despise weaving in the ends at the completion of a project, so bigger skeins means less work! Please click on the links below to go directly to each yarn.
A special update: Yarn Loop received one of the last shipments of Mondo yarn. Cascade Yarns will be backordered for about a month until the next shipment comes in from Peru. If you want a Ruby red blanket in Jumbo sized yarn, order today! There is only enough yarn left for 1 blanket. Plan ahead if you are after a Giant Stitch blanket; these yarns are quickly disappearing everywhere and we cannot guarantee that they will be in stock closer to the holiday season.
Last but not least, ChiaoGoo is here! The Red Lace Needles are so popular for so many different reasons. These Stainless Steel needles are a favorite of knitters using the magic loop method because they have memory-free cords. You will never have to fight the coiling cord again! Have a nickel allergy? Not to worry! These needles are stainless steel so you can knit with style and grace with the lightest metal needles around. Sock knitters can also rejoice because the Red Lace MINI set is now at Yarn Loop, too.
Similarly, ChiaoGoo also created the SPIN line of bamboo needles with ultra flexible cords that actually spin in the connector to prevent the crazy, twisted projects we all entangle ourselves in. ChiaoGoo also guarantees that the cable will not detach from the connector and also provides a huge guarantee for all of their products.
Lightweight, darkened bamboo needles are wonderful for knitters who need a little warmth and a little give. Personally, I prefer wooden needles because they create less hand fatigue in my index fingers and thumbs, especially on smaller sized needles. I know I am in the minority of accomplished knitters, but wood is good!
Do you wish your Red Lace sets come with the SPIN cables or visa versa? Well, you are in luck because all of ChiaoGoo's cords are switchable! Use the Small cables for US 2-8 and Large cables for 9-15. Yarn Loop also has ChiaoGoo's size US 50 needles in stock for the Giant Stitch items that are so popular.
Looking for something we don't have? Make sure to let us know! We strive to be your one stop shop for all of the best pattern kits, yarns and accessories.
