More Produce Bags

In the past few years, there has been a global movement towards the phase-out of single use plastic bags. In our own local towns, grocery stores are considering alternate reusable bags. With this ecco friendly concept in mind- we announce our new Cotton produce bag kits. Each kit contains enough Anne, a 100% fingering weight cotton, to make one bag along with a knit and a crochet pattern.
Many colors are available.
Next week: Big Market bags in Fantasy Naturale!!
Our new Cotton produce bag kits are already a huge success. Both bag patterns shown above are in each kit. And now we have 2 more mini bag patterns available- both FREE. Our two new patterns come written for larger versions as well that can be knit or crocheted with full skeins of Anne- getting about 4 bags per 100g hank of yarn. See us for these additional FREE patterns when you purchase your yarn.
Each 100g hank of Anne contains 371 yards. This yarn is spun by the makers of Fantasy Naturale- a real shop favorite. Just one hank will make several produce bags- a definite bargain.
The mini cones of Anne are a perfect size for the small produce bags- each contains 71 yards of this fingering weight cotton. So many colors to choose from.
Our new Knit produce bags look like mesh. The small one takes less than 20g of Anne (one mini cone). The larger one takes 25g of Anne. One 100g hank of Anne will make 4 of these larger knit bags. Patterns are FREE with yarn purchase.
Our new Crochet bags come in 2 sizes- The smaller one takes less than 1 mini cone of Anne. The larger one takes 25g of Anne, so a full skein will make 4 bags. Pattern is FREEl

Bio Sesia- Half Price!

Bio Sesia 5 is a beautiful Organic cotton in a fingering weight. The firm twist keeps it from splitting while providing for a relaxing knit. Several colors available at this incredible low price. FREE patterns too.
