Yarn Accessories from Lickin’Flames


A Great Yarn is delighted to announce our partnership with potter Jim Atchison, the co-owner of Lickin’Flames. Jim’s specializes in raku, which has its origins in 16th century Japan, and yields some stunning metallic colors, and well as more subtle images of feathers and other “naturalistic” images.

A Great Yarn is overflowing with examples of Jim’s artistry, including yarn bowls…

Jim has also provided us with our very own Cape Cod buttons.

Cape Cod buttons

The “crackled” ceramic buttons display the iconic image of Cape Cod in charcoal gray on a circular field of light gray, and are available in two sizes: 3/4” and 1 1/8.” We will soon be featuring the buttons on the Cape Cod Cardigan by Cindy Craig, which is a terrific pattern if you are looking for a sweater for a youngster. Antonia DaSilva from our staff is currently knitting up the cardigan using Skacel’s SimpliWorsted.
