My disappointment was not about the store, but the yarn itself, mostly. Looked like all the yarns from Hamanaka are too soft and smooth. I am into more wooly, sticky and (probably) itchy yarns these days. Of course soft and smooth and merino-ish yarn has a lot of beauty itself, but, it is not what I am looking for. Especially for fingering to sports weight yarns I would assign to stranded colorwork project. Hmm.
Then, last night, I noticed I looked over one thing.
Woolland 7 is pretty wooly, sticky yarn which felts beautifully. How about finer selection from Nikke Victor Yarns? Isn't it the same, or similar fiber and make as thicker ones? My only buying option for them is online yarn store like here. It's OK. Oh, I can't wait. I will try one skein each of white and black, making Selbu mittens and gloves.
How about a double-knit scarf with the soft chu-boso (fingering-compatible) Hamanaka yarn I bought anyway (because it's so soft! Did I say I don't like soft yarn? I LOVE soft yarn!!)?
