Four Boxes of Louet and the sale bin is full

We just got in four boxes of Louet yarns: Riverstone Bulky and Gems Fine/Sport. They are great yarns. The Riverstone is a champ at felting. It is a chunky. Patterns that use Brown Sheep Bulky, Manos, or any worsted weight held double would be right for Riverstone.

On it's own, Riverstone is very nice. I have to say that when we first got it I looked at the price and thought it would be horrible. But when I knit the swatch it was really nice. Soft, nice, springy.

The Gems feels like a new yarn. It is sooooooo soft. I havve always been a big fans of Gems because you can put it in the washer and the dryer (15 mins, tops).

Four boxes means things have to come off the shelf. The sale bin is full. Come clean it out people.
