The Miss Babs team is excited for Rhinebeck! We have been dyeing up a storm for this year’s festival, October 15 and 16 at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, New York.
You can find us in the back of Building C, booths 31-32. Have you heard that it gets busy? Try us in the afternoon! We restock throughout the show to ensure there’s always lots to choose from.

However, we don’t bring all of our yarns - there’s just not enough room. If it’s not on the list below, it’s staying home and here on the website.
We will have a wide variety of monochrome colors across our range, and probably more Wild Irises (one of a kind colorways) than Babettes (repeatable variegated colorways). You'll be able to pick up something truly unique!
Yarn we’re bringing:
- Yowza (light worsted weight, 100% merino)
- Yummy 2-Ply (fingering weight, 100% merino)
- Caroline (fingering weight, 70-20-10 MCN)
- Yummy 3-Ply (sport weight, 100% merino)
- Keira (heavy fingering weight, big skeins of 100% merino with a 4-ply construction)

- Patterns (and samples to look at, including our Fall 2016 Collection)
- Stitch markers, Fleegle Beaders, and project bags
This year at Rhinebeck we are launching our newest yarn, Woodbury! Woodbury is the fingering weight version of one of our long-time favorite yarns, Yet. With a 3-ply construction, it is round and smooth, and works up with a crisp hand. Woodbury holds blocking well and we think you’ll enjoy using it in lace projects as well as sweaters. It is 65% Merino wool and 35% Tussah silk at a great price, just $24 for a 400-yard skein. It’s not available on the website yet, so Rhinebeck will be the first time you can get your hands on this new yarn.
We have a new sample in Woodbury, the My Cryptonite shawl by Melanie Berg. We love how light and airy and crisp this worked up.
