We have re-enabled shipping options to Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.
All packages to destinations outside the U.S. will ship using a service called Global Post. This
is a service where I send packages to a collection point in the US, then they are
bundled and shipped to other countries by Global Post for customs clearance. Once customs
are cleared, the local post office delivers your package.
I do not collect any taxes (VAT) or customs duties owed on international shipments.
You may need to pay these before your package will be delivered.

The new Noro Magazine has arrived! It includes
30 designs to knit or crochet including many tops, shawls, and accessories. Details of all the designs
are online to order yarn pacs.
The magazine features 3 new Noro yarns, Asaginu, Uchiwa, and Yukata. All 16 colors of
Asaginu are now in stock. This unique yarn
combines French linen and Japanese Washi paper, bound together by polyamide(nylon). The difference in the way
the fibers take up dye creates a mottled effect.
Yukata are both online for pre-order. I do not
have a ship date for either yarn. If you place an order now, your card will not be charged until I
am ready to ship it to you.
