Each hand-dyed yarn is a unique & beautiful work of art. They are fun to knit with & enable us to create incredible garments & accessories to wear.

Knitting with yarns such as Malabrigo, Hedgehog Fibres, Madelinetosh & La Bien Aimee is even more rewarding if you know some tips & tricks.

Join us on Wednesday, 2/22 at 6:30pm for a complimentary discussion hosted by one of our knowledgeable knitters on Working with Hand-dyes! Topics covered will include:
