It’s October, colors (and eventually crispness) of Fall are arriving, bringing knitting time and sweater weather! Hurrah!
We are hosting a 2-week trunk show from Quince & Co. of sweater samples made in Owl yarn (worsted weight 50/50 alpaca/wool) from the pattern book Plain & Simple. On display thru Sun. Oct 14 at Sheep & Shawl. Quince & Co. owner/designer Pam Allen has created wonderful patterns for sweaters & accessories you’ll wear for years. Come in to see them and feel how softly Owl yarns knit up.
We are also hosting a 2-week trunk show from Green Mountain Spinnery of sweater and accessory samples made in the two yarn lines we carry from them: Mountain Meadow (worsted weight 70/30 wool/mohair) and Alpaca Elegance (DK weight 50/50 alpaca/wool) This is the first time we’ve been able to display these! We’re sure you’ll enjoy this event – Tues. Oct. 16 – Sun. Oct. 28.

The mission of Sheep & Shawl is to create a market for natural fiber yarns, promoting local and regional fiber farmers and fiber artists, and to create a local community of knitters and fiber artists.
I am so excited to be in this beautiful space within the vibrant Pioneer Valley, where “buy local” is a way of life. I hope you’ll visit my website again and be looking for updates!
