Sheep Light Show

Have you ever wondered what life is like for shepherds? Well, sometimes all that quiet time alone watching your flock of sheep gets to you and you have to create your own fun! :) In March a group of Welsh shepherds brought together several flocks, a video camera, and LED lights and made a unique visual experience. Check out the youtube video of the Welsh shepherd’s amazing light show!

Cast Away in YMN

Cast Away was featured in this months issue of YMN: Yarn Market News! YMN is a trade magazine for the yarn industry. Justine shared with Daryl Browner how she came up with the store's name and about a few sleepless nights spent choosing the store's location. Plus, there is a super cute photo of Olive!

Manos manos manos...

We have a boat load (literally) of great new colors in Manos' Wool Classica and Silk Blend to delight all! :)

In the Wool Classica we recieved eight solid colors and seven multi colored skeins with names like Goldenrod, Mulled Wine and Cornucopia. And in the Silk Blend we have nine solid colors and three multi colored skeins with names such as Coffee, Violets and Woodland.

Both Silk Blend and Wool Classica are hand spun and kettle dyed. While Classica is a merino and corriedale wool blend, the Silk Blend is a blend of 30% silk and ultrafine merino.
