We're excited to be returning to Texas for this year's DFW Fiber Fest!
We've curated a special assortment of our yarns and colorways that we think you're going to love. We can't bring everything, so read on to see what's coming.
The short and sweet:
What: DFW Fiber Fest
Where: Irving, Texas; Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas; Booth 121
When: April 5-7, 2019
We're bringing: Yowza, Yowza Mini Trios, Yummy 2-Ply and Toes, Gradient Sets, Crown Wools Sets, Katahdin, Hot Shot, Sojourn, project bags, patterns, garment samples, and a little something extra - a show colorway!
Our favorite sweater yarn, Yowza is a DK-weight superwash merino that comes in big 560-yard, 8-ounce skeins. It's super soft, which makes it great for accessories and baby items, too. We're bringing a wide range of colorways so you'll have lots to choose from. Our Yowza sample garments include the Cable Stayed Cardigan, Cedar Bark Raglan pullover, and several knit and crocheted shawls.
Yowza Mini Trios
Get creative with color with Yowza Mini Trios! We've carefully selected 3, 200-yard "mini" skeins of Yowza for these sets. They're great for accessories like The Shift, Whale Watching, and more. Check out our Ravelry bundle of Yowza Mini Trio patterns for more ideas.
Yummy 2-Ply and Toes
Yummy 2-Ply is a truly versatile superwash merino fingering weight yarn in a 400 yard skein. We dye 2-Ply in a rainbow of monochromatic and variegated shades. It's great for all kinds of accessories, but we also have lots of sweater quantities. Toes are 133-yard mini skeins, which are perfect for colorwork and small projects!
Gradient and Crown Wools Sets
Both of these sets are made from our Yummy 2-Ply Toes mini skeins: Gradient Sets contain 6 minis, and Crown Wools Sets include 12. We have several new shawl projects and samples, like Coastal Highway, Cascara, and Knitting with Fronds, to inspire you!
We like big skeins and we cannot lie! Katahdin is 1750 yards of light fingering weight, superwash Bluefaced Leicester. It knits and wears like a dream and is a staff favorite. Try it in a big lightweight cardigan like Sempervirens, a drapey pullover like Tegna (see our sample with modifications for length), or a big and bountiful shawl.
Last but not least we can't forget our favorite sock yarn, Hot Shot. It's an 80/20 superwash merino/nylon blend, with a nice tight twist that holds up well to wear. We've got a great assortment of bright fun colorways to choose from.
Sojourn is fingering weight, 65% cashmere, 35% silk, 100% swoon-worthy. We love it for luxurious little gifts like cowls… and if you can’t bear to give them away after you’ve made them, we understand ;)
Can't wait to see you at DFW!
