The Fiber Event at Greencastle

It's almost time for one of the best fiber shows of the year and we've been busy dyeing!  The Fiber Event at Greencastle, Indiana has three areas bursting with fiber, fleeces, rovings and yarns of all types and colors. Plus! equipment, books and tools for all kinds of fiber arts.

 The Fiber Event at Greencastle
 Friday April 17, 2015  10:30am - 7pm
Saturday April 18, 2015 9am - 4pm

Putnam County, Indiana  Fairgrounds
Free admission, free parking

We'll have a booth there and you can see all of the newest yarns and come chat about your current projects.  Look for our booth in the Community building right in front of the stage.

We'll be bringing some new yarns again this year.   Check these out!
  • Organic Cotton Boucle,  [sport/worsted weight].  225 yd skeins.  I'm dyeing the first 6 colors now to bring to the show. 
  • Dove, cotton/rayon spiral, [fingering weight]. 300 yd skeins.  Beautiful, soft yarn with a thin rayon stripe running through it.  This is a perfect yarn for weaving lightweight, hot weather items.  I'll have the first 6 colors done for the show.
  • Starlight,  rayon boucle yarn, [fingering/sport weight]. 150 yd skeins. This yarn has a lot of shine and twinkle in every loopy, twisty inch.   Great novelty yarn to pair with smoother yarns.   I love this stuff!
  • Scribble, rayon boucle, [sport/worsted weight].  150 yd skeins. Very similar to the Organic Cotton Boucle, only this is all rayon.   Great sparkle, great drape.  
  • Moonbeam, rayon tape/ribbon.  150 yd skeins.   I've had a bunch of requests for this yarn in smaller quantities, so here you are!    This is a great yarn for kumihimo.

In addition, we'll be emptying our Etsy store and bringing it all with us.  Hand dyed yarns of all types!  As always, we'll have a bin or two full of beautiful hand dyed cotton rovings and tencel rovings, too.   A lot of people have been using these with needle felting - including in dreadlocks!

We hope to see you in Greencastle.   Please stop in and say hello!
