We’re delighted to announce that we have an exciting event coming up: a yarn tasting featuring four yarns from the Fibre Company, a small yarn company out of Pennsylvania. The Fibre Company combines plant and animal fibers in interesting ways, seeking yarns that provide both softness and structure. Their patterns put their yarns to good use in accessories and garments alike.
A yarn tasting allows you to try out yarn before deciding to buy it, working up a little swatch to see how it feels in your hands and how it behaves as a fabric. Attendees will bring needles or hooks in a variety of sizes and we’ll serve up samples of four yarns from the Fibre Company, along with bagels, fruit, and mimosas.
- Meadow: a lace weight blend of merino wool, baby llama, silk, and linen
- Savannah: a sport weight blend of wool, cotton, linen, and soya
- Acadia: a dk weight blend of merino wool, baby alpaca, and silk
- Canopy Worsted: a light worsted weight blend of baby alpaca, merino wool, and viscose from bamboo
We’ll have a Meadow trunk show to inspire, and pattern ideas for all four yarns. Get a 15% discount on Fibre Company purchases and pre-paid orders made during the yarn tasting.
The Fibre Company Yarn Tasting is scheduled for Sunday, October 20th, from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm. There is a small fee for attending, so that we might cover the cost of food and drink, and because of our small space, we’re limiting this event to 15 people. It’s filling up quickly–sign up now to save your space! If you can’t make it to the yarn tasting, no worries–I’ll report back here on the blog and tell you all about it.
