We are packed to the rafters! Getting ready for Vancouver’s Fibres West in less than 2 weeks. We are still receiving some last minute shipments from Europe, preparing, packaging, pricing and loading the new products on our Online Store.
We have some unusual new yarns for knitters! Our new Banana Silk Yarn is luscious! Although there’s really no silk in these, if you know Banana Fibre, you will know that it looks, feels and shimmers like silk. Have a look at the iridescent qualities of Aqua or Peacock to see what I mean. There’s a reason that banana fibre has been wildly popular for over 400 years with Japanese kimono makers!
We also have Sari Silk Yarn, which has many of the same qualities and hand feel as Banana Silk Yarn. This yarn is hand spun by women in smaller Indian villages after leftover silk threads are collected from sari mills. The colours are striking and unique, a result of stray threads of vibrant colour migrating into the yarn during spinning.
For amazing character and texture, our brand new Sari Silk Ribbon Yarns are quite something. The loose threads along the edges plus the varying width of the ribbon sections give this ribbon yarn great character. These are all solid colours with tinges of complementary tones. We hope these draw lots of applause at #FibresWest!
This will be our first time at Fibres West so we’ll be taking lots of wool, silk, specialty fibres – even some felting supplies like our new Bonsai Sprayers, felting pads and Merino prefelt. We are already getting lots of interest for the great variety of wools we offer from different breeds of sheep, one of the best selections we have found anywhere. Come visit us at the Cloverdale Exhibition Grounds Agriplex during the 7th annual Fibres West for #feltingsupplies, #specialtyyarns and #spinningfibres!
