*Introduction of thread for sale*

Madeline tosh

Founded in 2006, the world-famous brand.
It is a popular thread that sells out quickly even if it arrives in delicate colors.
We have fingering weight TML and DK weight Tosh Merino DK.
TML is Grace's designated thread in amirisu issue 11.

Life in the Long Grass

Irish hand-dyed brand. First arrival of amirisu.
The brand is run by a couple, Caroline, who was a graphic designer, and Johnny, who was an architect. The colors they create are inspired by the natural scenery of the countryside, and are refreshingly beautiful. It is also characterized by being natural and easy to get along with each other.
Fingering weight Fine Sock and DK weight SW Merino DK are available.
Since amirisu is in stock for the first time, we are planning to prepare a yarn tasting!

Fiber story

A brand that Sarah, who lives in the suburbs of Detroit in the United States, is hand-dyed by herself. Sarah has enjoyed handcrafting and hand-dyeing since she was young. These yarns are attractive with subtle and feminine colors.
We have prepared Core DK of DK weight. A type that is firm and easy to knit and has a clear pattern. It is perfect not only for sweaters, but also for hats and cowls.
This is the designated thread of TAMBOURINE on the cover of pompom 12. cute!

Shalimar Yarns

A new American hand-dyed brand. It has a beautiful luster and the color is even and wonderful.
Fingering weight Breathless is available. Superwashed (preshrunk) merino, a premium yarn blended with cashmere and silk. It has a soft texture when knitted. The 3ply is elastic and can be used for a wide range of items, from small items such as socks and shawls to clothing.

Sincere Sheep

California brand founded in 2003.
Based on wool grown on American farms, all dyed with natural dyes. It's a beautiful dye that doesn't seem to be a natural dye.
Fingering weight TENACIOUS is available. It is durable because it is super washed (shrinkproof). There is also a moderate amount of twist, so the pattern is clear.
Light blue and blue are dyed with indigo, purple gray, logwood, red, cochineal, and lac, while red orange is dyed with madder and Himalayan rhubarb.


All of them have artistic and delicate colors that are unique to hand-dyed threads. You will forget the time and look at it.

Perfect for fall colors. Please stop by while walking around Kyoto.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
