While looking on line for yarn stores, I ran across a yarn company that is less than 15 miles from my house. They do mostly online sales, but have an outlet store at their warehouse. Has anyone used yarns from SWTC ( Southwest Trading Company)? Many of their yarns are made with soy silk. In fact the address is www.soysilk.com. I would love to hear if anyone has used their products or what they think when checking out the site. I plan on making a trip to the outlet store soon.

Yes, I recently purchased the yarn and in the process of knitting a shawl, it is wonderful to knit with and hangs beautifully, It's nice and smooth on the needles. Try it, I know you will love it!

Oh, I'm jealous that you are able to go directly to the store and feel the yarn and hopefully get some discounts. I've used the yarn and I like it very much.

Which of their yarns are you using or have used? I am now anxious to go there!

I had some of their blends....probably something like 50% wool and 50% soy/bamboo/cotton, etc. For most things, I try to buy yarns with some wool content and that they are superwash. From there on, I pick by color, feel, weight, etc.

I have begun to see their yarns more and more. Please let us know what you think. How lucky to live so near the warehouse and outlet store!

Love SWTC yarns! Have used Amaizing, Tranquility, Tofutsies and a couple of others whose names escape me at the moment. I've been to their warehouse sale - it's awesome! You'll love the yarn!

I've used Tofutsies and Kareoke. Kareoke is great. On their website they have a free pattern for the "Not Entirely Entrelac" scarf...gorgeous when made from Kareoke. I've also felted Kareoke, it produces a lovely "soft felt" for hats and bags.

Also somewhat jealous!

Have you found your yarn on line or at your LYS? I am new to fancy yarn, and had never heard of the brand. What I find on their site is very interesting. I sent an email to them and Jonelle sent a nice reply. Of course I will have to buy something when I go! I have just ventured beyond afghans and scarves!

I've purchased their yarns both at shops and by ordering over the internet.
