Early January 2019

Whether you caught the recent AP article about the growing popularity of US-grown wool, or you're a follower of wool-industry champion Clara Parkes, you may be aware that domestically sourced wool yarns have a growing fan base in the United States. One of our favorite creators of US-grown yarns is California's Elemental Affects, owned by designer and instructor Jeane deCoster. This month, not only will we be welcoming Elemental Affects' Shetland yarn to the shop, we'll be welcoming Jeane herself! 

Jeane deCoster started her yarn company with Shetland in the early 2000s, and Elemental Affects now domestically sources and produces yarns in Cormo, Romney, Merino and silk, too. As the perfect complement to the new-to-us Shetland yarn, Jeane will teaching two workshops at Cozy on Saturday, January 26: Fun With Fair Isle and Color Party! In Fun With Fair Isle, knitters will  use Shetland to learn two-handed colorwork knitting, and then steeking, or cutting, their creations to create a stunning tied headband. Color Party! can be a companion class, or a standalone for anyone who'd love some extra education and experience in how to create and combine harmonious color palettes for handknit projects. If this is your year to make the colorwork sweaters you've been craving, then these workshops will start you off in the right direction!

You can register for Jeane's workshops through our website, or directly at Cozy. Elemental Affects' Shetland will be available in the shop beginning this month.
During our end-of-year inventory process, we pulled a few yarns and colors of yarns that have served us well at the shop, but that need to go to make room for new yarns in 2019. We were delighted to discover that some of these yarns are in rare sweater quantities (or blanket quantities... or family-set-of-matching-hats quantities...) and we want to share that delight with you! Starting Tuesday, January 8, we are having a Sweater Sale. We've bagged up matching dyelots of multiple skeins, and are offering them for sale, whole bags only, at 50% or more off the regular prices. The sale lasts while the bags do; we know there's a forever home for every yarn!
Yes, we are bringing back our new year Lucky Duck Bags, for the adventurous among you! Last year we debuted our take on Japanese Fukubukuro, or "lucky bags," sealed and filled with surprise yarn. And a bonus duck, because Eugene.

Each Lucky Duck Bag is $25, although every bag has a value greater than that based on the original price of the yarn. We can't tell you what colors you'll receive, but there are a few non-wool bags marked out for those that can't wear it.

Here's hoping that the magic of chance leads you down new pathways of inspiration, and that all surprises are fun ones!
