A pattern suggestion and a knitalong for October

When our newsletter was delivered last week with news of the upcoming savings to be had on Alpaca Elegance this weekend, (please see in bold below) we received several messages from friends looking for pattern suggestions.

Its never to early to start gift knitting

Our friend Maria Muscarella (aka Ninja Chickens) recently released a clever hat pattern that is wildly adaptable.  This top down hat that can be knit with any weight yarn in two contrasting colors. You simply cast on 8 stitches and continue increasing until you have the perfect size hat for you!  It will work for […]


Call a friend!

Our newest design, Hybrid was inspired by the partnership and community that is created and maintained by the vendors and attendees of fiber festivals all across the county.  It pairs yarns from different producers to showcase the inherent beauty of each.  (You can read more about the pattern here). When Kate approached Kimber and Karida […]

Humming along

The Mill has been back up and running for several weeks now, and we are getting the hang of yarn production while socially distancing.  We’ve got fresh air moving through the building with as many fans as possible; and our production floor is operating at partial capacity to allow our co-workers to work freely without […]


Painting with tweed

Yoked color work sweaters can offer us an exciting blank canvas with which to experiment with color.  We thought we’d share with you several sweaters that were recently finished using our Mewesic yarn that is currently on sale!  All three of these projects are the same design: namely Nelchina by Caitlin Hunter.  It is so […]

It is such a pleasure to meet other fiber enthusiasts, see what […]
