More purty things

Small update today on the BBF website: a new base, Heavenly Sport, which is the same base as Heavenly Lace except in sportweight, and skeins of 400 yds. The 70% baby alpaca/20% silk/10% cashmere blend is luscious and takes color beautifully:

I'm also trying out a wool-free sock yarn, called "Sheep-Free Sock", consisting of 44% cotton/43% acyrlic/13% nylon:


It's nice for those allergic to wool, or if you're looking for something for warmer months. These cool light colors would make nice lace ankle socks, for example.

Have a wonderful weekend!
