    Look What’s New in the World of Yarn

 
Neve from Juniper Moon Farms
New colors!  Boy do these ever dress up spring.
Everyone who sees this new collection is really WOWed by these colors.  I especially love that they have added a peachy coral- a color that has been missing in yarn palettes for several years.
Neve is a soft 100% cotton in a chainette construction that makes it very lightweight.  222 yards/100g.  One hank goes a long way.
