New from

‘What The Flock’

New from Joe Cole of What The Flock Yarns: our own WTF Flocking DK, with exclusive colorways for TKE. 16 colors in stock now…with 5 more coming!
231 yards in each 100g hanks.
Our first Flocking DK project is a Ribbed Hat, and we offer it FREE with your purchase of just one hank of Flocking DK. More designs coming!


Kenzie just may be the perfect tweed! New Zealand merino, angora and alpaca lend softness and body, nylon lends strength and the silk noils contribute delicate texture and color accents. The smooth, round 3-ply yarn knits into a cohesive fabric that blooms when wet blocked. Work it at a DK to WW gauge. 20 colors to choose from.

Our large 5 color shawl can be knit even larger if desired. Design by Stephen West.

Uses just 2 colors of Kenzie. This is a beautiful design, and an easy to knit project.

Practice your 2- handed Fair Isle skills with this tubular cowl. Make it long or short.

A fan favorite design to knit in any DK weight. Our Kenzie version is a stunner- come see.

Kim Dyes Yarn

Kim Dyes Yarn offers gorgeous hand dyed quality yarns.
Incredible bases and colorways.

The Sockhead Cowl takes just one hank of fingering weight yarn.
We chose our new SugarCookies Sock from Kim Dyes Yarn for its
deep colorways and fun sparkle. FREE Pattern on Ravelry.

A fingering weight blend of Superwash Merino, Yak and Nylon. Subtle undertones of rustic browns prevail. 438 yards of softness.

Sweetness overload. Superwash Merino with a Glittery Lurex wrap. Makes great shawls, scarves, cowls and more.
