New Fur at The Pen and Hook

Fur is in this year and The Pen and Hook is now selling it. I know that spring is coming and everyone is wanting cotton, but soon crocheters and knitters will be thinking about what they can make for fall and Christmas (I can't believe I just said that.). 

In preparation for that shift in crafting, here are my new colors in Pelt and Fun Fur from Lion Brand. 

Pelt, is a more realistic looking type fur. It is made of polyester and nylon fibers which are made to look like mink, sable and chinchilla. With these, you can imitate luxury furs without breaking the bank. These faux furs would make great accessories or trims. Maybe even an amigurumi project?

Fun Fur has also made an appearance at The Pen and Hook. Trim sweaters, make vibrant accessories, or fun items for babies and children.

Lion Brand has patterns if you need ideas for these great fibers. All you have to do is create an account, if you don't have one already, and you will have access to thousands of patterns at varying ability levels. You can pin these patterns and save them to your account. It's all very accessible. Here is a really cute hat to knit with Mink Pelt:
