The most popular ones on sale this week include Cascade Cash Vero DK, Crystal Palace Taos, Cascade 220, Koigu Silk Swan, Kollage Temptation, and Cascade Alpaca Lace. Rowan Kidsilk Haze is 46% off too, and I've heard good things about that one.This is a great way to try those yarns you could normally only get at a local yarn store or snag a big bag of multiples for a great deal!
The current best choice I know of for international shipping – please let me know if you know of others! Get on their email list for notifications when they update their sales. Herrschners has changed their sale dates this week to run Friday to Thursday, so I can't update with new info - I only have the sale info through today. Looks like I need to rethink what day of the week I do the weekly coupon roundup... any thoughts?
Still on sale for today, Sundance Tie-Dye Frill is the only yarn on sale on the Yarn page, and the Hot Buys page features just six options: Herrschners Sugar'n Spice, Bernat Baby, Bernat Baby Sparkle, Herrschners Baby UltraFleece, Beads, and Fuzzy Wuzzy.
