Website issue fixed

Posted on February 08, 2017 | 0 Comments

Hi all.  I'm not sure how but the links between the KPPPM yarn photos and the selection dropbox stopped working over the weekend.  I've spent time fixing them - right now the links for in stock KPPPM yarns work properly.  All other links seem to work with no problems.

2016 Indie Untangled Rhinebeck Trunk Show

Posted on October 04, 2016 | 0 Comments

New York Sheep and Wool (Rhinebeck) is around the corner and for the second year I will be a vendor at the Indie Untangled Rhinebeck Trunk Show Friday evening.  I've been sewing up a storm - there are new prints for the drawstring project bags and (hopefully) I can sneak  in one or two new bag styles. Stop by and say hello!

Woolyn - a new yarn store in Brooklyn

Posted on September 21, 2016 | 0 Comments

My friend Rachel has opened a yarn store in Brooklyn called Woolyn (Get it? Wool + Brooklyn = Woolyn).  It's a great name for a pretty nice place.  

Woolyn - a new yarn store in Brooklyn Heights

 

(FYI - I've know Rachel for a while, we were roommates for Sock Summit and Woolyn is selling my project bags.)

Chiagu Project Bags at Woolyn Yarn Shop

 

Rachel has a wonderful background for a yarn store owner: she has worked in a local yarn store and she has designed knitwear that has been featured in Vogue Knitting and Interweave Knits. And she hand dyed yarn for her previous business venture, Studio Avenue Six.  She knows her textiles!

 

Yarns at Woolyn Yarn Shop

Woolyn is stocked with industry workhorse yarns from Cascade 220 and new indie dyers -  in fact both Mollygirl and Narwhal Needlework dyed special color ways for Woolyn.

Lux Adorna Sport Kit

In addition to wool and cotton fiber Rachel also carries the cashmere kit from Lux Adorna Knits which Clara Parkes has just blogged about for Knitter's Review.  

 

Roving and braids at Woolyn

Woolyn also stocks roving (Sweet Georgia!) for those who use drop spindles and spinning wheels.  There is an area where you can sit down and have some refreshments.  And don't forget to browse the highly curated books.

The store opened in mid August which may have been too late to be included in the New York City Yarn Crawl that is happening this weekend (Sept 24-25).  If you are exploring the city's yarn stores Woolyn is definitely worth the visit.  Near the Brooklyn Bridge Park, the area has great eating, shopping and calling all cat lovers - it's one block from the Brooklyn Cat Cafe.
