Maryland Sheep & Wool 2020

Maryland Sheep & Wool 2020

We are so sad we are going to miss everyone at Maryland Sheep & Wool this year!

Every year it's a challenge to choose which few yarns we can bring to show you in our booth. It's fun to take a little wander around the barns and see the sheep. We see our fellow vendors and catch up on how things have been since the last time we met. We get everything ready, with sample garments and signs... and last but not least we hang up the special show colorway and get excited to see all the attendees!

We've created a mini festival space for you online, complete with not one, but two show colorways. You can also check out all the videos we made for the festival on YouTube.

Through the end of the day Monday, May 4, 2020, we are offering free First Class shipping and discounted international shipping on all orders - no code needed.

If you have color questions or would like assistance choosing the perfect yarn for your project, our customer service team is on deck to help you this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, from 11-4 EDT via phone and email.

Learn all about our bases, or browse all our yarns. We also love to put color combinations together, so check out our yarn sets... and for even more project inspiration, you can always wander through our Project Gallery!

New Yarns

Our new yarn bases for 2020 are Putnam, a sturdy superwash merino wool and nylon sock yarn, and Moonglow, a mohair-silk laceweight.

With a 4-ply construction, Putnam is round and smooth, with the right elasticity and density for socks. Putnam has a smooth matte finish that will show off all your careful stitching.

Give your projects a beautiful halo with Moonglow, a laceweight kid mohair and silk blend. Whether you carry it together with another yarn or use it alone, it's sure to add an extra dimension to your work. 

Purple Joy

Purple Joy, 2020's special show colorway for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival is a joyful speckled mix of pinks and purples over a light pink and cream base, perfect for a happy project.


Exuberance, our special online-only show colorway for MDSW 2020, is natural cream speckled with springtime colors including fluorescent green, bright orange, marine blue, and a bit of pink and purple. Skeins of Exuberance are very individual and will be difficult to match in large quantities - please be aware of this when ordering! We'll do our best to match multiple skeins. If you have a speckle color you'd prefer to see more of, please let us know in the notes at checkout.

We know that shopping online doesn't include all the fun sights, sounds, and smells of the festival, but we hope to see you again soon! Thank you so much for joining us for our virtual Maryland Sheep and Wool!
