Phoenix Yarn Cashmere Laceweight Giveaway!


Phoenix Yarn is formerly Jags Funky Fibers! Jags needed a new look and a new name after her hiatus earlier this year. I think the name suits her new shop beautifully! How appropriate that like a phoenix, she resurrects old sweaters into beautiful yarns!

I have been quite pleased with purchases made from Phoenix Yarn in the past- So pleased, that I have been "saving" this seafoam colored cashmere for quite some time! I have it earmarked for something from "knitted lace of Estonia" it's that wonderful!

We're giving away this fuchsia colored cashmere lace today! Just visit Phoenix Yarn, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below! We'll be drawing for a winner later this week, so please take a moment and facebook and twitter about it for extra entries!

I love the Pansy! Although what I would do with linen/cotton laceweight is as yet beyond me...

Chris said...

The Eggplant worsted cotton looks like it would be great fun to knit. Imagine a baby hat made from that!

Cotton Candy - Cobweb - such a fine yarn would make an interesting heirloom piece, though I don't know if I'd have the patience to make it.

Sarah said...

I absolutely love the Coal colourway. So gorgeous and sophisticated!

Peggy said...

The Pumpkin King yarn is such a rich, lovely shade of my favorite color~orange!

I just love the IDEA of her shop. I just bought some gorgeous cashemere from her and can't wait to get it. I don't know where she find so much fine wool sweaters to unravel and how she has the patience to unravel them but I love that she is giving a new life to some old knits.

jmo said...

Love that Coal lace cashmere!

Key Lime Pie just calls to me, much like the dessert! And cashmere isn't too terrible either, and fewer calories!

Wow! What a great idea and what beautiful yarns! I loved the Valentine lace - so pretty. I also really liked the Cotton Candy, but I've never heard of "cobweb" weight. ??

Amethyst - Fingering
Thats very pretty.

Stacy said...

I love the bright, vibrant "Cherry - Sport - Silk/Nylon/Angora," although I wouldn't actually be able to purchase it since I'm allergic to angora.

KT said...

I like the pansy linen/cotton lace. And with 4 skeins at 250yd/skein, there's enough for a nice summery wrap - for less than $30!

Karen said...

I have been checking out this shop for awhile! Right now, I really think Coal - Lace is the best. Subtle, sophisticated and luxurios!

Teresa said...

I love the amethyst cotton fingering weight yarn. I have some other cotton yarns that I plan to make a sweater for my daughter out of - not enough of any one color so I figured I'd just do stripes or something. That yarn might just fit right in.

chevyrell said...

I'm feelin' the eggplant and london fog together=)

Ms.Curdy said...

mizzlizzbeck said...

Natalie Servant said...

Cashmere lace! Lovely. I like the Pumpkin King colour.

Jean Ashley said...

I really liked the white chocolate 100% cashmere lace yarn, and the ambrosia fingering weight yarn. I am also very interested in the sweater unraveling service. I have a couple of sweaters that would give me much more joy as yarn than they do as items to wear...

neferatowen said...

I usually see something that I super love as soon as the page comes up and this store was no exception - pumpkin king yarn all the way!

PenelopeRose said...

The Key Lime Pie - Lace - is gorgeous!!! Great shop!!

Maria said...

I have to say, the colors are all so vibrant and beautiful, but I am SO IN LOVE with the London Fog! I find it difficult to find a "true" grey - they are always tinged with another color (a blue grey, a purple grey), but this is a lovely true light grey

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

The Lilac sport 100% lambswool 205 yards looks like a good spring and summer color.

VeloCC said...

Pumkin King in Lace...so beautiful

Jamie said...

Eggplant - what an awesome yarn and I love that it is recycled.

Marlitharn said...

Gorgeous stuff! I'm particularly drawn to the Valentine laceweight cashmere - I'm on a pink kick at the moment.

SusanM said...

I love the Amethyst fingerling yarn, but I would love to try some cashmere as I've yet to knit with some.

lorraine said...
