Want to be part of a great adventure in 2010? Become a member of Crown Mountain Farms fiber or yarn clubs. Registration is now in it's second week. The clubs have free shipping worldwide. The "Fiber Of The Month" club and the "Knitting For Fun" club both offer different
colorways you can play with and you may choose different yarns or fibers. Discounts of 5% or 10% are available on purchases during 2010 on our website depending on the duration of your membership.
If you love sock hop yarn and were used to buy it through our website this option will no longer be available. We created the "Sock Hop Yarn" club and only members of this club will be able to purchase the sock hop yarn in 2010. One good reason to join the "Sock Hop Yarn" club! Click the logo above to go to our homepage, click on the CLUBS button, and begin your journey there.
Happy holidays from Purlescence Yarns! We're in full-blown holiday mode, knitting and weaving gifts for our loved ones. Are you set with yours? Our new favorite yarn is Cascade's 128 Superwash, a chunky Merino that knits up into beautiful gifts in no time at all. We've got a gorgeous color selection in the shop with more set to arrive this week!
