By now you may have seen the gorgeous colors in the Pantone Fashion Color Report Fall 2015. The trend is beautiful, earthy natural colors that make a bold statement. The designers have spotlighted progressive movements in American history while keeping the tones appropriate for both masculine and feminine designs.
Plymouth Yarn provides these warm tones in our 100% wool, Galway, made in Peru. We chose this yarn because of it versatility, warmth and it’s an absolute pleasure to knit or crochet. Here is a list to assist you in finding the right shade for the upcoming season!

After all of the years that Plymouth has been selling Book # 638, Done By Monday Afghans, it proves that simplicity sells. This book was originally published in 2008 and it still sells just as strong as it did back 7 years ago if not more.
There are 15 easy afghan patterns for any skill level of knitter. And each blanket is produced using 10 balls of Encore Worsted. You are double stranding the yarn and using up around size 13 needles to accomplish your project. Truly capable of knitting one in 3 days! (Binge TV may be the other pleasure to accomplish during this exercise).
There are so many choices now in the Encore Family since this book was first published: Coffee Beenz, Encore Worsted Tweed, Encore Worsted Colorspun,Encore Dynamo, and for a more playful result consider Jelli Beenz, Baby Beenz, or even the new Toybox Collection!
Jump to the Plymouth Website and check out all the different possibilities. http://www.plymouthyarn.com/yarns
Ask for it at your local yarn shop!

There is something very special happening at the Delaware Museum of Natural History! Designer Sharon Silverman has lead her team to create a beautiful and unique yarn bomb experience.
Our favorite component has to be Yarnboa! This cuddly snake is over 40 feet long and constructed mostly of Plymouth Yarns! Almost 9000 yards of yarn were used for this creature which was created to celebrate the museum’s exhibit Titanboa:Monster Snake. The snake is filled with used newspaper and plastic bags. Sharon plans to reconfigure the crocheted creations into blankets, which will be donated to the Friends Association for Care and Protection of Children in West Chester. You can meet her at the museum on Sunday December 14 from 1-3 pm. The Titanboa exhibit will run until January 25th, 2015.
Sharon has been creating beautiful yarn bombs for some time now, you can see some examples of her amazing work on her facebook page. Here are a couple other creations you can see at the museum located at 4840 Kennett Pike, Wilmington, De., 19807.

Wow! Wait until you see this line-up! We have been so busy working on our new line of yarns this year. And we found so many that we had trouble keeping it down to a decent # of yarns.
We have 15 all said and done. I KNOW!!! 15!!!
Here is a description of these yarns for you to read about. NEXT I would like for you to check them out on Ravelry, tell us your favorite new yarn and what it inspires you to make.
We will select a winner by random draw-so enter often if you like!
Essex: Chunky weight 100% wool wrapped in a charcoal or black thread in a fascinating subtle stripe. Stitches melt together to create a wonderfully muted, but colorful, substantial fabric. This yarn is great for chunky weight accessories that you’d like to have a pop of color.
Gina Chunky: We developed a chunky weight version of one of our favorite and best-selling yarns, Gina. Gina Chunky is a single-ply roving in bright, cheerful self-striping colors. This 100% wool will make cozy winter accessories in a snap. Charmingly fresh and bright in a quick to knit gauge.
Homestead: A true Aran! Homestead is a classic 3-ply wool with a design oriented color range. We love this yarn for many reasons. Surprisingly soft yet rustic, homestead will wear well and be a knitters favorite.
Cashmere Passion: Cashmere never felt so good! In fact, we think this 80% Merino, 20% Cashmere blend feels better than most 100% Cashmere yarns (without the price tag, too!). Cashmere passion knits up at a light worsted gauge. The soft halo produced from the fabric yearns to be knit in a luxury accessory or classic knit. A truly cuddly yarn.
Cashmere: We have taken our Royal Cashmere to the next level. It is the same high quality Italian 100% cashmere in a new ball put-up. Best of all we have redefined the entire color palette. 10 colors ranging from classic to fun! Check it out. This is for that very special project-hopefully for yourself!
Sophia Tweed: A multi colored binding thread twines around thick and thin Acrylic and Wool. Sophia Tweed is like a party in a ball. Stockinette and garter knits are soft and nearly weightless. We love this one for women’s garments and accessories in easy to knit patterns.
Spago: A light-as-a-feather novelty yarn with a bulky gauge. Spago self-stripes, and will knit well in simple stitches. Spago is ultra-textured and very fast to knit with.
Kid Gloss and Kid Gloss Hand Dyed: We tested many Silk/Mohair blends to bring to you the finest of the lot. Kid Gloss is 72% Super Kid Mohair and 28% Mulberry Silk. Accept no substitutions! You need to knit this yarn to know it is the best! The color palette is very inspirational for mixing together yarns, for either double or single stranded projects.
Stella Jacq: We are so excited about this self-patterning worsted. If you are familiar with our Knitcol yarn, you will love its big sister, Stella Jacq. Jacq is taken from the word jacquard, which is a textile term for intricate patterning. 100% Machine washable wool. Exciting and stunning shades bring unexpected results. Suitable for babies, kids, and adventurous adults.
Baby Alpaca Cherish: 50% Acrylic and 50% Alpaca blended together to create the best of both worlds. A versatile DK weight, Baby Alpaca Cherish is a great yarn for the family. The alpaca lends its softness and drape, while the acrylic lends its wash-ability. Stitch patterns and color-work alike work well with this new yarn.
Rekor Mini: This is a fun crafting packet of little balls of 10 yards each, in great color ranges. Bust out the imagination for these: duplicate stitch, granny-style square crochet, jewelry, etc. Check out our free pattern booklets to get you started F557 and F558.
Inspire and Impulse: Stock up on these kits for holiday shoppers. 2 different yarns packaged with a pom-pom. And the ball band has the pattern inside for cute hats.
Scozia: Brought to you from Adriafil, this tweed blend of wool, viscose and nylon has a great hand and a rustic outcome. Chunky for fast knitting, but a light weight finished garment.
Riflessi: Also from Adriafil, this 4 to the inch blend of wool, acrylic and nylon has a metallic thread braided into the chainette structure-subtle but very effective.
