New Yarns from Kelbourne Woolens

Not only have the girls from Kelbourne Woolens been devoping their own line of yarn, but they are also distributing BC Garn, a family owned Danish yarn company founded in 1972. Their initial focus on high-quality weaving yarns has evolved into a line of luxury organic and ecologically minded hand knitting yarns, offered at an affordable and competitive price. BC Garn is known for quality yarns, and many are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) – the highest international standard for organic fiber production.

Throughout the summer be on the lookout for the arrival Bio Shetland, 100% organic wool, perfect for that queued sweater with color work, Alba, 100% organic cotton, Lino, 100% linen, and Tussah Tweed, 100% Tussah Silk. We are very excited about getting started on our shop samples!

Beginner Brioche Class

Saturday August 11 10am to noon
$45 for class and supplies

Learn how to brioche once and for all! It seems like the trend is here to stay so why not learn the basics and then get started on a beautiful shawl like Sunset Blvd shown here in Baah! La Jolla. We still have a wonderful selection of La Jolla in the shop.

Come in or call to reserve your spot and get class details (there will be some recommended “homework” prior to the class). Payment is required to make a reservation.

Dye Class with Cheryl from June Pryce Fiber Arts

Thursday August 16th, 4-7pm
$75 per person, includes 2 sock blanks and all other materials, snacks and beverages.

Join us outside under a tent for some yarn dying fun. Cheryl will bring her expertise (and music I’m told) for an early evening class where students will be able to dye two sock blanks that can later be wound into a cake for knitting, crocheting, or weaving. Or you might just want to hang them on your wall! Wear old clothes and shoes. Please reserve your spot by paying in advance in the shop or over the phone. Spaces are limited.
