WE LOVE OUR LOCAL YARN SHOPS
At Kelbourne Woolens we are always trying to find new ways to support our stockists. Local yarn shops are the lifeline of the yarn industry. They are the community builders; churning out new knitters, fostering new designers, and helping people with problems - from dropped stitches to relationship advice! The online knitting community is vibrant and vital, but we wouldn’t be anywhere without our local yarn shops. We are offering this pattern exclusively to participating Local Yarn Shops. Ask for the Demeter Sweater and Terra yarn at an LYS near you!
