Don’t forget to come to our Tent Sale, May 17th and 18th!!

Guest: Joe Raffino from SWTC. Joe gives us a peek of what is coming for fall from SWTC. It is the biggest collection in SWTC’s history. Four new yarns made of wool and a new yarn from a different fiber. Therapi is a blend of wool, silk and jade! The first yarn on the market to include jade as part of the fiber content.
SWTC will also be sponsoring a hat program similar to Sock Wars.

Stay Tuned!

Jezebel is a hand dyed merino wool in a laceweight.
Saphira is a superwash wool in a chunky weight. There will be 40 colors in this yarn.
Tranquility is a blend of bamboo and wool in a sport weight.
These will be available beginning in early summer and continuing into the fall.

Pixie did some math and estimates that her blanket will be about 56” x 64”

She was completely random when deciding on color sequence. She just grabbed yarns, put them together and got some really interesting color combinations.

Pixie recommends blocking the pieces before assembling.
