Guest: Kathy talks with Rhonda Fargnoli of Coastal Colors Yarns about launching a new yarn company.
Rhonda and her partner Charlie have been teaching art for over 35 years and have applied their love of color to their new line of yarns. They use botanical extracts and many of the plants from their own yard to dye the yarn.
BFL, Superwash Merino, Flax for the Spring, are all yarn bases that they use but they keep their selection small and they buy their yarn locally. Coastal Colors yarns are currently available in 8 stores and online soon at Colorful Stitches in Lenox, MA.
Rhonda also works at RISD – The Rhode Island School of Design in their Continuing Education department as an adviser the Hand Knitting Design program.
Thanks to the Berroco Team for a wonderful Event this past Thursday night. Norah and the gang, as well as our customers, braved some typical New England late-Winter weather to be here with us.
