It has been a few months since we shopped the seemingly-endless specialty fibers, tools and goodies at Interweave Yarn Fest’s Marketplace and to be honest with all of you, we’re having major withdraws! Since we can’t travel back in time (or forward to 2018!) we’re dedicating this post to our top trending treasures and classes from the Interweave Yarn Fest exhibitors you love! Online shopping spree, anyone?
Now Trending: DK PURE | speckled dk weight yarn Caribbean
Okay, we have a MAJOR fiber crush on this yarn. The mermaid-inspired colors are to die for! This DK-weight yarn can be transformed into pretty much anything you like–sweaters, scarves, blankets and even summery shawls for evening strolls on the beach. If you’re ready to be whisked away to paradise, grab this vacation-worthy yarn now!
Now Trending: Lilura Yarn
Often when we think of neutral colors, exciting is not the first word that comes to mind. But the new Lilura Yarn showcases a range of soft and pretty colors that would create a lovely summer shawl or scarf for fall 2017, and definitely redefines the word “neutral”. Lilura means “enchanting” in Basque, and we can’t think of a better name to sum up this 3-ply sport, made from a natural blend of merino and alpaca. Create your own enchanting masterpiece with Lilura Yarn today!
Longmont Yarn Shoppe
Now Trending: Driftwood Crocheted Pullover Class
If you want to brush up on your crochet technique before fall arrives, sign up for a fun day of creating an intricate pullover, designed by one of our favorite fiber artists, Lily Chin! This pretty pullover is light enough to rock during those hot, late-summer days, but you can also layer it up when the temperatures drop.
The class has 3 dates in August, and it takes place at the Longmont Yarn Shoppe in Longmont, CO. Be sure to take lots of fun pictures of your project if you attend!
Now Trending: Primrose Yarn – ZigZag Sock
For us, socks are a year-round necessity, and we can’t think of a better color scheme for summer than this zesty, margarita-inspired concoction! Notes of cream, lime green and vibrant yellow give this yearn a fresh, summery and citrusy vibe. It’s the guilt-free way to indulge in your passion for fun colors, and the yarn has far less calories than a margarita–we promise!
Now Trending: MAGNOLIA DK – SAGE
We are all about green for summer 2017, and this light-sage yarn is begging to be transformed into a chic shell, a light cardigan or even a fun accessory! This color reminds us of a lush forest. It’s the perfect hue for those who love color, but don’t want to be too bright! This beautiful yarn will surely sell out, so get your hands on it before it’s gone!
While we’re sad that Interweave Yarn Fest’s Marketplace doors will not be opening for quite a while (come on, April 2018!), we are amazed by the gorgeous products and fun classes offered by our wonderful exhibitors. Now, raise your hand if you’ll be having a little online shopping spree tonight!
