In honor of Spring's arrival, the sheep at The Irresistible Ewe have selected several yarns in green hues to place on sale. We've also reduced the cost of all Cotton Supreme Batik yarns to welcome our newest member into the fold. So, as usual, look for the knitting ewe at the top of each page which has sale yarns.
