Just unpacked the latest shipment of ZAUBERBALLs from Schoppell Wolle.  It's amazing yarn and just runs out the door! All colours in stock in both ranges plus FREE PATTERNS.  Also we've the quirky  Schoppell FLYING SAUCER yarn for those who want exactly the same colour-run in their socks!  75/25 wool nylon.  Check out Shawn - he can't wait to get out the needles, and Quin (our sheep dog) can't resist Fleigende colours. Ha Ha.  
Shawn checks them out!

Zauberball and Zauberball Crazy wool/nylon $24 per 100g ball
Great Free Scarf patterns available!

Quin with the six colours in the Flying Saucer "Sock Yarn"
100 g $28.  Your socks pair comes out the same colour mix!

To go with our new seasons' yarns, I am so happy to be stocking AUSTRALIAN MADE Knitting Needles!  SWALLOW needles have been made in Melbourne for over 100 years and are manufactured from casein (milk protein) so despite being a "plastic" they are not from petroleum-based hydrocarbon plastics.  Lovely to knit with - flexible yet strong and so silky.  Priced from just $4.20 a pair!  We've got them in size 10mm too for those who knit chunky art yarns. 
Australian-made Swallow Needles.  Prices start at $4.20 a pair!
Also on their way, flying through the postal connections fo the world .....Chiao Goo RED circulars in stainless steel and lace, and DPNs too! plus a range of Nancy's Knit Knacks for spinners and knitters including the fantabulous Anything But Lazy Kate and Nancy's great Yarn Pet.  Hopefully they will get here in time for the Bothwell International Highland SPin In and Fibre Festival !
