Kelbourne Woolens Baby Collection trunk show - now through Dec 14th!

Maybe it's because we've added several little beans within our company over the past few months, but even those of us with no kids couldn't help cooing over the Kelbourne Woolens Baby Collection. The Collete Sweater! The Florence Hat & Booties! Kristen had already knitted several of the Darling diaper covers and loved them, so is now working on some in the next size up! Don't know what we're cooing over? We've got all the cuteness in store until Dec. 14th, and if you aren't in the area, we'll have a blog up soon with more photos and details!

Misti Alpaca trunk show - now through October 24

Back in August, we had a fun and informative visit from Miguel & Lisa Paz, owners of Misti Alpaca. We learned how four generations of Miguel's family built Misti Alpaca into the fair trade yarn company we know today. They shared interesting information about Peru, alpacas, their ranch and the nearby village where women work hand dyeing the lovely yarns with sustainable dyes and special techniques developed by Misti! You can find some of that info on MistiAlpaca.com too! You can tell how excited we were for that visit! And now, we are super excited to get finished pieces knit by the women of the village as a trunk show to show off all the gorgeous Misti Alpaca colors! Come see them in person or check out our blog for more photos and pattern info!
