Heavenly Fibres

I can finally let you all know about my big news!!!!

I have opened up a yarn store on line called Heavenly Fibres. Not everything is up yet, but I would like your help and advice please! Would you please have a wonder around in the store and let me know your opinion, for instance is it easy enough to find items etc..

On my search for beautiful hand dyed yarns I came across an Aussie company Kaalund Yarns that hand dye beautiful Australian yarns and silks. Their Australian merino 2ply and their 50%silk/merino are both devine, both in richness of colour and texture.

I have also brought in Cherry Tree Hill yarns, some gorgeous Suri Alpaca for lace knitting as well
as one of my personal favourites, their lovely hand dyed sock yarns.

I would like to also mention that for the first time in Australia, Ilga Leja and Sivia Harding lace designs are available from my yarn store for all keen lace knitters like myself!

Other good news, my Secret Pal Cindy in Texas has received what I sent her and she likes everything which is fantastic. The knitting needle case I sent was made especially.
That's it for my news for today.

Happy Knitting Everyone!

What exciting news, Helen! I had fun poking around and looking at your site. It took me a minute to realize that, once you click on the category, other options would appear on the left hand side. For example, I clicked on products, then yarns, and waited for something to display. Then I finally saw that the brands were now displayed below the "yarns" heading...

Otherwise, it's a beautiful store. I love the calm colors and clean lines you used. It's very soothing.

Best of luck with your new endeavor! Your SP10 pal, Cindy
