Welcome to Yarn & Thread by Lisa's Blog

I wanted a place were I could let you know the latest updates. And were we could share ideas or opinions on yarns. I figured a blog was better than a lot of emails.

Feel free to post your opinions on yarns we carry or ask questions. I look forward to hearing from you!!

New Peaches & Creme Manufacturer and their New Colors

Well, we have received a color listing for the Peaches & Crème yarns from Spinrite. All of the old colors will be cut. They are completely redoing the line. The new colors are pretty, but for those of you that have product lines built around the old colors you may want to stock up. Or look into redoing your products in the new colors. Right now the company has the original Peaches & Crème on sale. They've lowered the price 30%. So you may want to see if they still have your colors in stock.

We do have a color listing for the New Peaches & Crème colors now. We have not decided if we will be carrying the new line yet or not though. The price is going to be a bit higher with the new manufacturer. But I wanted to make sure you got a look at the new colors that are going to be available starting July 2011.

One last note. When cotton prices went up last quarter we absorbed as much of the cost as we could and did not raise the price on our worsted weight cottons. The DMC and crochet thread prices we did raise, but not the worsted weight cottons. As of June 15th we will have to raise the price of the worsted weight cottons as well. The manufacturer is raising their prices again. So will have no choice but to raise our prices. Between the rising cost of basic business expenses and the yarn prices increase we will have no choice. I just wanted to warn you. Stock up before the prices go up.

This price increase will effect the Bernat Handicarfter Economy Size, All of the Lily Sugar'n Cream Yarns and the Peaches & Crème Yarns.

As always we thank you for your continued patronage!!
