This week Kathy talks with Linda Pratt from Westminster Fibers, distributors of Rowan, Schachenmeyer and other fine brand knitting yarns. They discuss new, Fall yarns from Rowan: Brushed Fleece with a collection designed by Martin Storey, Big Wool Color, a fun take on one of our favorites where each ply is spaced dyed before plying for great playful colorways, as well as Fazed Tweed and Rowan Finest both of which feature collections by Sara Hatton. These yarns haven’t arrived at webs as of the airing of this show but keep an eye on the Rowan Yarns page on our website for them. They also discuss some great new yarns from Schachenmeyer and the impossible to resist Rowan Magazine #56!
