New Mountain Colors Yarn

Thanks to everyone, old friends and new, who stopped to see us at The Wool Gathering. We had a great time exploring the festival and eating ice cream, and we're already looking forward to next year's show.

Yarns & Fabrications is proud to offer new Mountain Colors yarn in the shop! Come in and check out this beautiful yarn in three varieties, along with great patterns to go along with the yarn!

Mountain Colors Twizzle is a worsted weight yarn in great jewel tones. You get 250 yards per 100 gram skein of this 85% merino, 15% silk blend yarn. Come in and see Karen's scarf sample with this beautiful yarn.

Weaver's Wool is an AMAZING one pound skein with 1450 yards of 100% worsted wool. There's enough yarn in one skein to make an entire sweater! Each skein is completely unique, with beautiful variations of color.

Lastly, Bearfoot is the fingering-to-sport weight sock yarn from Mountain Colors. With 350 yards per 100 gram skein, this yarn is a blend of 60% superwash wool, 25% mohair, and 15% nylon. This yarn is SO soft and comes in more gorgeous jewel tone colors. Check out the sock patterns offered by Mountain Colors for a great match!

Lakota West Craft Show

Saturday, October 3rd, 10-4 and Sunday, October 4th, 11-4

Stop and see us at this local, very successful craft show. While we will not be selling yarn related items, we will be letting the attendees and community know that we are a local shop, owned and staffed by local people. The craft and art of knitting and crochet is not only very enjoyable and useful, but is also one way to give back to the community by donating knitted and crocheted items to various organizations.
