Northfield Yarn had to bid farewell to its long-time shop manager, Vanessa, last week. Many of you are probably accustomed to seeing her at the shop on weekday mornings, where she was always ready to offer helpful advice and friendly customer service. She’s been an integral part of the team here since October 2011, and she will be sorely missed! She is on her way to a full-time position with the Faribault Woolen Mill, but we hope she will have time to join us at Open Knitting some time and tell us all about her new adventures.
Northfield’s annual sidewalk sale, Crazy Daze, is happening this Thursday, and Northfield Yarn will be part of the fun starting at 8 am! We’ll have steep discounts on many wonderful yarns, plus we’ll be selling many shop samples to make room for more. Crazy Daze is a great time to visit Northfield, if you live out of town. A carnival atmosphere and great deals can be found up and down Division Street.
We are very excited to be adding two yarns from West Yorkshire Spinners: BFL Aran, and Signature 4-ply, in both self-patterning and solid accent colors. As their website proclaims, WYS’s products are “reared, sheared, and spun in Britain.” The BFL wool has a wonderful bounce to it, which we invite you to come in and feel for yourself.
This DK 100% hemp yarn is perfect for warm weather projects. It’s just right, for example, for a cool, drapey summer top or a hand towel that will soften beautifully over time.
