Local Indy Dyer Trunk Show
We are so excited to have Material Culture Fiber and Inner Yarn Zen back in store!
It is time to focus our attention on local businesses.  We have locally dyed yarn, locally made knitting bags, and on Saturday we will have handspun yarns.
Material Culture Fiber
We have long loved MCF yarns!  And Tria is introducing three new bases and lost of new colors.  We have her tried and true Mongolian (fingering weight with merino and cashmere) and Modern Era (an epic sock yarn of merino, tencel, and nylon).
Arcadian is a new, 100% superwash Merino fingering weight -- ideal for shawls!  And Lux is a super sparkly superwash Merino.
Eliza is a new DK yarn for Tria -- 100% superwash extra fine merino -- this yarn takes up color so well.  Gorgeous!!!
Come in soon...  We will only have the large selection for a few days.  And I already bought five...
Inner Yarn Zen
Marietta's yarns are ever popular.  We are so lucky to be able to get them from time to time.  We have an excellent selection of Lux Fingering -- with a nice chunk of cashmere in it.  It has a delicious hand and the colors -- 
well it is IYZ... ooooohhhh, aaaahhhhh!!

We also have some mini skein packs and self striping yarns.  We will only have these yarns for a couple more days so be sure to stop in Friday or Saturday!
From the Mountain Cashmere
This 100% cashmere, handspun yarn has sold so very quickly.  But we still have some left...  The patterns we have in store are all one skein projects so you still have a chance to work with this amazingly yummy, good karma yarn!

Women's Co op Products

 

We will also have non-yarn products that come from women's co ops.  This is a spectacular way to support women and their ability to lift themselves out of poverty.  

Plus the products are cool!!

 

Judy will be here with her products from multiple women's co ops from all around the world.

  

Urmi will have her bags from India -- all of which are made in cottage industries. 

I even brought some small project bags back from Thailand with me -- they are super cute and support a house that helps pregnant teenage girls.

Think Global Act Local

I have always loved that old saying!  So to celebrate International Women's Day, we also want to celebrate our amazing local women who have taken the risk to start their own fiber businesses.

On Saturday the 11th we will host:
Inner Yarn Zen
Material Culture Fiber
BahBah Fibers
and introducing Fox Hollow Bags
We will have handmade stitch markers and handspun yarn!
