Brooklyn Tweed Trunk Show & This Week's Blog
A beautiful Brooklyn Tweed Trunk Show is now at Wool & Grace! This beautiful collection highlights pieces to be worn for comfort and relaxation - and look beautiful at the same time! Gorgeous construction and detail are a part of each piece, as this collection includes cables, lace, color-work and form. Yarns highlighted in these pieces are Shelter, Loft & Quarry. This beautiful trunk show will be at Wool & Grace until October 28.
Also, this week's blog discusses the idea of your "Deserted Island Yarn." Which yarn would choose to work with if you could only pick one? We explore some qualities we consider to answer this question, and we look at one of our choices. Plus, we have a bevy of projects that we're itching to make in our own Deserted Island Yarn.
