Berroco Mochi
Berroco Mochi is your new favorite yarn you didn’t know you were missing. This Baby Alpaca, Wool, and Nylon
191 yards on a 50 gram ball, twice what you would expect from a worsted/Aran weight yarn!

The little pops of color in the ball bring a bit of fun to any project.

We love this hat and cowl made from Mochi. We love it so much, we're running a class with them! This pattern, along with 5 others designed by Amy Christoffers , are in the new Mochi book.

Cuarenta Shawl Kit - Color Choices

Many of you are familiar with our Cuarenta Shawl, featuring our 40th anniversary color Cuarenta (which means 40 in Spansh), dyed for us by the artisans at Manos del Uruguay.

So many people loved this shawl pattern, made from Manos Fino, a Merino/Silk blend, that we put together color kits!

Below is just a sample of the color options. Click here to see them all!
Since 1968, Manos del Uruguay has transformed the lives of women all over Uruguay. Manos is a Certified Fair-Trade yarn produced by a women's cooperative in Uruguay.

We're proud to stock every yarn Manos makes in every color. We think you'll love it as much as we do.

Two Custom Kits - only from the Ball & Skein

We partnered with our friends at Skacel to bring you two, unique kits using HiKoo Sueño Worsted, a wonderful merino/bamboo blend yarn that's great to work with.
This is Grand in Green , a beautiful and versatile crocheted wrap made with seven (7) skeins of Sueño Worsted and designed by Sonja Hood . The kit comes with the yarn as well as the pattern. We think this piece will quickly become a favorite, no matter what color you make it in!
This two color vest is Layla , designed by Elizabeth Smith . Layla is a boxy, oversized cardigan layering piece featuring contrasting color skinny stripes. It has a bit of a 70’s vibe, which is what inspired the name (you know, that great song by Eric Clapton/Derek and the Dominos).

Knit all in one-piece from the bottom-up, Layla will be your go-to layering piece this fall and winter!

The kit includes the yarn and the pattern.

Auntie Woolie Says...

It's been nice having the retail shop open and welcoming back our guests as well as our fabulous staff! We've been impressed at how considerate most people have been. Almost everyone coming in the shop has been doing the right thing by wearing their masks, washing their hands using our space age, touchless hand sanitizer dispensers, keeping their distance, and only touching items they're truly interested in. With efforts like this from all of us, we can help keep our restaurants, hotels, and shops in business. Our concern for them and for you is why we continue to work at keeping our place a safe, comfortable place to shop and to work. So thank you!

Our schedule can change based on guidelines, so keep up with the latest schedule on our website at

Until next time, please stay well and...

Happy Stitching!
A Virtual Class!

Join us Saturday August 15 from 9AM to Noon to experience one of Berroco’s newest yarn, Mochi .

This unique yarn is a blend of baby alpaca, wool, and nylon in a chainette construction.That means you get lots of yardage on one ball making it a great value. It has subtle speckled colors in a heavy worsted yarn that is soft and light, yet warm for both accessories and garments.

We’re using Berroco's Kingsey Hat & Cowl pattern for the class, which will teach you how to work in the round with a slip stitch pattern. Even though the stitch pattern looks complex, it is easy to learn, and produces a beautiful result for both the hat and cowl. This pattern is one of 6 that are included in the new pattern book from Berroco!

The yarn comes with the class!
This is an ON-LINE class held using Zoom technology . You'll be able to join from anywhere using whatever technology you have, a PC, a Mac, an Apple iPhone or iPad, or an android device. Log in information will be shared with class attendees prior to the class.
Don't want to take the class? Order the yarn and book and start knitting!
Rocket2 Squared Banner
PREORDER the addiClick Rocket2 Squared at a special introductory price!

Knitters from all over have fallen for the addi Rocket2 Squared needles! These needles have a squared profile making them more comfortable to hold for many of us. The edges are rounded, so they're unlike any other square needle you've tried. They also feature texturing on the needle shaft that helps you control the yarn as compared to a standard round needle.

These are available in the standard long tips with cables ranging from 24" to 40", as well as a short tip, with cables starting at 16".

addiClick  interchangeable needle set is the only complete system which provides a patented click-in tip that will never come unscrewed while knitting. No tools are required to make a quick tip change; simply insert the cord deep into the tip, twist and release. Thanks to the  Click’s revolutionary locking mechanism, the tips will remain secure until you choose to change them.

As with all addi needles, these come with a lifetime warrantee against manufacturers defects.
