It’s been a little while since I’ve bought any new yarn…I’m several projects behind with what I do have – but while we were in Florence, I stopped in at Sheepy Yarn Shoppe there. It’s a small shop, and I chatted for a little while with one of the nice ladies that works there.
I was pretty familiar with most of the brands they carried, but I bought Muench Yarns in Lucky (color 5012, lot 15), something I hadn’t seen before. It’s described at their website as “soft techno hair mixed with paper flags & the slightest shimmer of lurex.” Leslie’s mom loves purple, and I’m going to make her a scarf with this (knitted with something else for some weight). I think she’ll like it.
Sheepy Yarn Shoppe doesn’t have a website yet, but they’re at 112 East Tuscaloosa Street in downtown Florence, and their phone number is 256.768.2677.
