Final Week - and a short one, so don't miss it! The Yarn of the Day sale ends July 31st. The last lucky yarns are Noro Karuta and Herriot by Juniper Moon Farms.
Sumptuous 100% baby alpaca in a DK weight, Herriot is incredibly warm but still incredibly light.
Karuta is a bulky and silky blend in striking colors. But...we only have a few colors left.
We decided as bonus for the final Week an entire select group of ruffle scarf yarns, which make for quick and fashionable accesories.

Week 3! Yarns of the Week starting June 15th are Haniwa from Noro and Burly Spun by Brown Sheep.
Haniwa has a 50% silk content, and comes in more variations of light earth tones than most of the other Noro yarns. Burly Spun is the big and beautiful 100% wool from our very own home-state yarn company, Brown Sheep. (Yeah, that's right. Nebraska is the Good Life. I think that's still our state motto.)

The Yarns of the Week starting June 8th are Hitsuji from Noro and Angel by Debbie Bliss. Angel is a wonderfully light silk and kid mohair blend, great for airy summer garments. Hitsuji has the fabulous long colorways that Noro is famous for, and is the "big-brother" to Noro's most popular yarn, Kureyon. There's also a bonus Yarn of the Week this week, Corafino Linie 5 from OnLine yarns. (We're saying our 4-year old son, Wright, picked that. He ran into the rack for it and jostled it, so that's close enough.)

Just in case anyone is getting anxious, ETA (estimated time of announcement) today is 10:15am CDT.
Check back here on June 1st for the first Yarn of the Week announcement.
We just realized that for our valued customers in Australia and New Zealand (and other places far south of the equator) that its not actually summer there, but we hope you still appreciate the sale. -Lori
Hello from Craig and Lori at Yarn Charm.
In appreciation of everyone
who has helped our little shop get through its first six months or so,
we are having a special sale throughout June and July. Every week,
Craig and Lori are each picking a "Yarn of the Week" which
gets a 35% discount. Plus, for our local customers only, one color
will be selected daily for an additional 10% off (making it a 45%
total discount! If that doesn't get you to walk into the store, what would?)
The sale is limited to stock on hand. No preorders. No refunds.
No other discounts apply. (All the usual foofaraw.)
Starting on June 1st,
each Saturday we'll announce the yarns picked for that week. (Craig
says "Maybe right at store opening time or maybe later, or maybe
before.") Check back here each week!
Note: Please keep in mind
that our store's inventory is shared by customers in-store and
on-line. Having it in your shopping cart online is the same as
walking around with it in-store. On occasion, someone on-line may
beat an in-store customer to checkout with the same yarn or vice
versa, and we appreciate your understanding if it has to go to the
person who pays for it first.
