COMING IN JUNE: Sheep(ish)–A Stitch.Rock.Love Yarn!
February 7, 2011 by Vickie Howell
I’m thrilled to announce the upcoming launch of my new yarn line with Caron International, Stitch.Rock.Love! The first yarn in the line, Sheep(ish)–a wool blend–will hit Jo-Ann Stores and Buy.Caron.com in June. I’m so excited!
I’ve spent the last 8 months, working on fiber content, hand-picking each of the 21 colors, and designing garments for the launch (stay tuned in upcoming months for loads of free patterns). It’s been such a blast, and I couldn’t be happier to be able to bring you a roving-style yarn that’s rich-looking, but affordable in price.
Here’s a peek at the palette:
21 Flavors of Sheep(ish)
Note: I took these shots myself, so colors may appear different on your screen.
Knit Swatch: in colors Espresso(ish) & Lime(ish)
Crochet Swatch: in color Turquoise(ish)
Knit Swatch: in color Magenta(ish)
I’ll be updating you with scoop as I have it over the next few months. What I can tell you now is that so far, Jo-Ann has picked the line to be on end-caps of 250+ stores, and it’ll be available on Buy.Caron.com (as of this summer). Independent retailers will be able to order it through Notions Marketing so if you’ve got a favorite, local store–please, ask ’em to order it!
Keep in mind, since Sheep(ish) isn’t available to the public until June, we don’t have a dedicated web page for it, yet. It’s all coming though, I promise! I just couldn’t wait any longer, to share the news.

As always, thanks for the support!
