We are thrilled to be returning to Texas for the return of DFW Fiber Fest!
Fiber Fest will be held September 22–25, 2022 at the Irving Convention Center in Irving, TX. The vendor hall is open Friday through Sunday and we'll be in Booth 509.
We're squeezing lots of our favorite yarns into our booth, including Yowza and Yowza Minis, Yummy 2-Ply and Toes, Killington, Katahdin, Tarte, and Sojourn, plus our newest yarns that are great for warmer weather: Avon, Holston, and Damask.
Yowza and Yowza Minis
Our flagship yarn, Yowza, is a DK weight superwash Merino wool in big 560-yard skeins. We also have 200-yard 'minis', great for colorwork and smaller projects.
Our most versatile fingering weight yarn! Yummy 2-Ply is 100% superwash Merino wool in a huge rainbow of colorways. It's great for all your accessory and sweater projects, and we'll also have 133-yard mini Toes for stripes and colorwork. We are happy to help you put together color combinations!
Once you touch it, you'll know. Sojourn is a luxuriously soft blend of cashmere and silk, perfect for treasured little accessories. Make a gift for someone special - like yourself!
We like big skeins and we cannot lie! Katahdin is (approximately) a mile and a pound of yarn in one big hefty skein. Katahdin is 100% superwash BFL wool in a light fingering weight. One skein can make a sweater or a large accessory project.
Killington is one of our very favorite sweater yarns. This DK-weight blend of Polwarth wool and silk is a lofty, non-superwash yarn, giving your stitches great definition and a nice bounce to your finished project.
At 500 yards per skein, Tarte is a staff favorite for shawlettes, socks, tops, and more. Tarte is a sleek and glossy blend of superwash Merino wool, Tencel, and nylon that knits up smoothly and blocks beautifully.
One of the most frequent questions we get at shows is "do you have a non-wool yarn" and we finally have an option for you. Damask is a flowing, lightweight blend of silk and linen, perfect for summer tops and accessories. The silk is sleek and smooth, punctuated by the less uniform linen fibers. The yarn has a 4-ply construction to create a balanced fabric. Like all yarns with this fiber content, Damask has very little memory or bounce, but excellent drape.
Our colorways will appear different on Damask than on our wool yarns - the dyes we use are only taken up by the silk, not the linen, giving the yarn a softly heathered or tweedy appearance.
Avon is a light fingering weight blend of fine Merino wool and silk that will flow smoothly through your hands for beautiful accessory and garment projects. Avon is a slightly finer yarn than our Yummy 2-Ply, and is soft with a gentle sheen from the silk. Avon is not a superwash yarn.
Sleek and glossy, Holston brings together the best of silk and Bluefaced Leicester wool. This fingering weight yarn takes color beautifully and will shine in lacy projects as well as accessories and garments that require excellent drape.
We'll also have Gradients and Crown Wools Sets in an assortment of colorways, a special show colorway for DFW Fiber Fest (always a surprise until the day of the show), and some project bags and stitch markers.
Get inspired with the latest designs from our Fall 2022 Pattern Collection - and we're always happy to help you choose colorways for all kinds of projects.
The Miss Babs team is looking forward to friendly Texas faces (and lots of great food). Can't wait to see you at Fiber Fest!
