Ushya, from Mirasol, is a bulky merino yarn with a small amount of nylon. It has a chainette construction which makes it remarkably springy. All together it is a squishy, soft, strong yarn that knits up in a flash.

Our free Libretto scarf pattern makes use of the wonderful, heathery colorways in a large-scale play on feather and fan.

Ushya is 15% off through December 5.

Fresco, from Classic Elite, combines wool, alpaca and angora into a unique yarn. A fingering-weight yarn, Fresco can be knit at a regular gauge for a lovely, fuzzy fabric like this wonderful Beaumont Tam from Jared Flood's Made in Brooklyn.

Knit it on a larger needle and it becomes light and floaty like in the Basket Whip Cowl, a free pattern from Classic Elite.

You can see a sample of the Duet mitts from Melody when you're in the shop and see why it makes colorwork projects a little more special.

Fresco is 15% off through November 14.
