Fresh Deliveries from Anzula, BSF, & Berroco!
Jimmy Beans Wool

E.T., Phone Jimmy!


This week, Jimmy and the Beans have been on a quest to find yarn that is out of this world! We've traveled to the far reaches of the yarniverse, with a simple mission. Find. Cool. Yarn. At the controls of our spacecraft, Yarn-Deavor, is Lauren, Purchaser Extraordinaire: purchaser of yarn by day, captain of the Yarn-Deavor by night. Lauren has us rocketing towards our first destination, Anzula!

A planet of epic proportions, Anzula is located in the Cali-yarn-ia Galaxy. We've heard rumors of a milky soft yarn, with drape and sheen so stellar, it is said to be to-dye-for! As we disembark the Yarn-Deavor, we are greeted by the smiling faces of the Anzula-ites. In their hands they have what we now know is called Milky Way. This milk protein and merino wool combo has us head over space boots! As we fawn over the yarn-y goodness, the Anzula-ites bring out their newest creation, Lunaris. This stunning yarn combines Nebula, a yarn we universally know and love, with CASHMERE. Let's just say, the Yarn-Deavor is taking off from Anzula a bit heavier than when we landed...

Eco-Cashmere Woolstok Jumbo

We continue our journey into the yarniverse with a stop at Blue Sky Fibers. This planet is full of alien-like creatures called 'alpurlas'. These furry critters most closely resemble alpacas back on Earth. Communication is difficult, but they seem to understand our mission. The chief alpurla presents Lauren with their two most recent fiber creations, Eco-Cashmere and Woolstok Jumbo. We've never felt anything softer than this Eco-Cashmere, and we're already planning big, chunky knits for the fall with Woolstok Jumbo. Arm knitting, anyone?! Needles[s] to say, our spacecraft is dragging a bit, as we bid farewell to the alpurlas!

Berroco Pixel Skye Header

Last stop on our trip around the yarniverse, Berroco, 3rd rock from the Cali-yarn-ia sun! During our stay with the alpurplas, they told us of yarn with colors so bright, you'll need sunglasses to gaze at them across the Skye. Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but these beautiful yarns are sure to put a twinkle in your eye - Pixel perfect!

We've heard whispers of never-before-seen colors of Nebula, and the Berrocians certainly didn't disappoint. They've packed our ship full of their newest designs and fiber! We've officially reached max capacity, and must return the Yarn-Deavor to the mothership, affectionately nicknamed the Yarn Barn. Up, up, and away... we've got creating to do!

Eddy House Reno

Knit with a Purpose!

One of our sweet local customers, Ralyne, needs your help! She's knitting socks for the Eddy House here in Reno, a local organization that works with homeless and at-risk youth to help develop the life skills necessary for independent living. Helping local youth, ages 12-24, with care and comfort services, they are in need of warm socks to provide youth for the upcoming fall and winter months.


This is where you come in! Ralyne needs her fellow fiber friends' help to provide the Eddy House with 60 pairs of warm, washable socks before cold weather hits our area. There are not any pattern, fiber, or size limitations, though washable yarn is recommended! We suggest using any of these Cascade sock yarns, but you can also stash dive! If you'd like to help Ralyne keep local youth warm this winter, socks can be mailed to:

Occam Scarf Delicious Yarn Project Log

Delicious Yarns' Occam Scarf

From our friends at Delicious Yarns, featuring their newest Fresh Baked Yarn Club, '18 Summer - Coconut/Jellybean/Honeydew Choc Chip: "Occam is an asymmetrical scarf that takes a simple idea for a joy ride of mathy, nerdy, stylish fun. We made the middle size from the pattern and there was no game of "yarn chicken" with this one! We alternated Coconut Sweets throughout, with Jellybean Speckles through the first half, then changed to Honeydew Chocolate Chip to finish it out." Okay, where did our needles run off to?? We're ready to cast on!
