All our vendors have told us of coming price increases or have already increased the wholesale prices of their yarns. Much as I hate to do it, all yarns will have to increase $.50 a skein on August first. Any yarn I order before then will be the old price. Since I still have not sold the farm, I am having to order most of the yarn I sell . Hopefully sometime soon the farm will sell and I can get relocated and have a sale on all that yarn I currently have in storage in time for Christmas knitting.
