It’s finally happening, Spring in the desert is a beautiful time full of flowers in bloom, longer days, and getting ready for hazy summer days!
We’re looking towards lighter spring summer projects with wonderful, colorful cottons and cotton blends in every weight to keep us cool.
How about a summer top of Berroco’s Modern Cotton, a classic worsted weight cotton rayon blend available in 36 zippy colors? There’s also dreamy soft Berroco Pima 100, great for garments and baby blankets with lots of spring garden colors to pick from. In the lighter DK weight there’s a stunning assortment of Cascade’s Ultra Pima, Juniper Moon Farm’s cotton/linen blend Zooey. CoBaSi Plus(worsted) and CoBaSi (fingering) by HiKoo, are a terrific cotton, bamboo, and silk blend restocked and ready for your fresh spring tops, shawls, and sweaters.
