Love them!

Made myself a lovely birthday wrap (my own design). So soft and lovely!

Debbie K.
The best LYS out there

Between friendly service, gorgeous yarns and the open door policy (go visit the warehouse - it's amazing!) it just doesn't get any better than this. Well done Apple Yarns. This Canadian gal makes the trip as often as her work allows.

Thanks for your enthusiastic 5 star reply, Debbie. We always love to hear that customers feel at home here. We'll see you next time you come down.

So Soft and Slightly Lofty

This yarn is absolutely divine to work with. It provides lovely stitch definition. It has a soft sheen to it which makes it beautiful to include in a shawl, cowl, or hat project. Will definitely purchase again!

Linnea, thanks for the 5 star review of Apple Fiber Studio Empire. So glad you are enjoying working with this lovely yarn.

Do you want luster and drape?

I had one skein of Reflecting Pool. I didn’t get it for anything special. It just sent out its siren song and I grabbed it. As I admired the gorgeous color I thought about Chinese porcelain in indigo and white and decided paired with white or cream it would make a beautiful Baktus scarf. So I bought Pearl Diver to pair with it and sometime soon I’ll have a gorgeous, drapey scarf that reminds me porcelain —to wear with that other indigo icon—blue jeans.

Karen, we love hearing about your Batkus scarf, please share photos. Thank you so much for the 5★★★★★ review of Empire by Apple Fiber Studio. We love the drappiness of Empire too. Cheers, Andrea
