Solitude Wool, back to market this weekend
What a wonderful taste of fall. Almost as good as a 70 degree day in February…I’m savoring every cool moment, and so are the animals! Are you getting the urge to knit something for fall or thinking about hand made holiday gifts for the people you love? Small batch, breed specific yarn will make your project even more special, plus wool is just so nice to knit with, you will be treating yourself, even if you aren’t knitting something for yourself.
Next week I will map out our full fall schedule which includes several fiber festivals and shows. Coming up soon: Solitude Wool Field Day 2: Cotswold September 16th (reservations suggested for the mini-workshops, one knitting, one spinning) and The Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival September 29th & 30th
This weekend we will return to the Falls Church (Virginia) market on Saturday and continue to be there most Saturdays until Christmas. Sunday we will be at the Dupont (DC) market and back every other week until November when we come every week again. At the market this week:
This boot sock yarn has several new colors, including some that men would wear. I think they will be up on our web site by 8/22.
There are several new colors of the hand painted Romney. These are now up on the web site, but please note: the hand painted skeins are larger than the solid colors, I wanted to make sure in this larger yarn there was enough to play with.
This is one of the Romney hand paints…a bouquet that won’t fade and make you happy in the middle of winter.
We will bring other yarns too…Karakul and Tunis, the ingredients for the knit-to-felt bucket bag and others yet to be selected.
Hope to see you this weekend, and if you aren’t within market distance, check out the web site!
