The November book will be Hex Wives by Writer Ben Blacker and Artist Mirka Andolfo

Synopsis: The war went on for centuries--on one side, a coven of perpetually reincarnating witches, dedicated to cultivating their otherworldly abilities and guarding their independence; on the other, an all-male conspiracy of witch hunters known as the Architects, determined to put an end to the power of their nigh-immortal adversaries for good. Neither could land a decisive blow and the result was stalemate. Until 2005, when everything changed. Now, coven leader Isadora is a happy wife with a happy life in a cozy, quiet cul-de-sac in the town of Desert Canyon. She has no recollection of her many past lives; no memory of her membership in an ancient order of necromancers; no reminders of the endless war it waged; and no idea of the power that she and the other housewives of Desert Canyon possess. But you can't keep a good witch down--and these ladies are the best. Once they find out the truth about their white-picket prison, the men that they thought they knew are going to have hell to pay.

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process, however, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We highly recommend hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.

When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed to order and shipping may take 3-14 days. 

 Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein. 

 All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting.  Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content.
