Habuwrap2 Another gorgeous wrap greets you as you enter the store!

This one is crocheted out of Habu's Stainless and Alchemy's Silken Straw – two very very unusual fibers.  Habuwrap They combine to make a wonderful piece.

The Silken Straw is almost paper-like, but it is silk and works up with wonderful texture.  The Stainless is one of Habu's most fascinating yarns (and they have a lot) – it is spun with stainless steel – really!  The metal allows the very fine yarn to hold its shape – so the garments hold their shape. 

Really some terrific fiber options!

Today at 3: Urban Knitters – come in to knit and explore all the new goodies in the shop!
