See you in Vegas!

We're busy putting the finishing touches on everything and getting our bags packed, because Kelbourne Woolens will be at the TNNA show in Las Vegas this weekend! 

We love attending the TNNA shows, as it gives us an opportunity to see our customers, amazingly talented designers, and dear friends. Being in Vegas this year should be an experience we won't soon forget! Travis, who works in our warehouse has already told us that when all else fails, just put all your money on black. Or was it red...?

If you'll be attending the show, or even if you won't be, read on to get a sneak peek of what we have in store for you!

Kelbourne Woolens will be at TNNA January 26-28 in Suite 339 representing and showing The Fibre Co, BC Garn, Soak Wash, and - of course - our new Kelbourne Woolens yarn. Come and take a look at our new yarn, Andorra, and view the entire Andorra Collection.

We will also be showing our brand new yarn for the spring season which will debut on the spring equinox, March 21st. Come and take a sneak peek!


BC GARN

Kelbourne Woolens is happy to announce that we are now the North American distributors of BC Garn yarns from Denmark. BC Garn, a family owned Danish yarn company, was founded in 1972 as Væveværkstedet i Barrit. Their initial focus on high-quality weaving yarns has evolved into a line of luxury organic and ecologically minded hand knitting yarns, offered at an affordable and competitive price. 

BC Garn is known for quality yarns, and many are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) - the highest international standard for organic fiber production. Stop by our suite 339 at the show to take a look for yourselves.

Kelbourne Woolens will be representing The Fibre Co. at TNNA. Come see the 12 new colors of their popular Luma yarn, and revisit our incredibly popular collection from S/S 2017

Did you catch that I mentioned Soak in the list of things we'd have at the show? You heard correctly! We just began distributing Soak products in the US, and we're so excited to be working with Jacqueline and her team! They will be at the show, just down the hall in Suite 342. I've been told there will be bubble guns, so be ready when you get to the third floor. I'm still trying to decide on my favorite scent, and right now I think it's Fig, but check with me again the weekend - I'm sure I'll have changed my mind! 

As a little Soak bonus, if you come to our room, Suite 339, and show us a swatch in any of the yarns we represent we'll give you a free Soak mini!

We hope to see you in Vegas!

December Featured Finds Round Up

Happy New Year!!

For the last year and a half, we've been sending out a weekly newsletter, Featured Finds, where we share little tidbits from around the world that we find interesting. The topics range far and wide, and are guaranteed to be interesting, educational, or thought provoking. Once a month, we'll be sharing the top ten highlights (on no particular order) from the weeks prior. December highlights are below. Enjoy!


1 / Sweet Georgia Yarns released a mini Advent Calendar skein and shawl kit. It was such a brilliant idea, we all had a "why didn't we think of that?!" moment.

2 / People have strong (negative) feelings about cranberry sauce, and for that I blame the gelatinous cans we were all subjected to as kids. Why not up your game next year and make this amazing Martha Stewart recipe Courtney recommended?

3 / The free Holiday Cheer Ornaments pattern we posted last year was a hit again this season. Turns out no one can resist a tiny mitten, hat, or ball!

4 / If ornaments aren't your thing, these amazing knit reindeer by Made by Ewe are both an adorable decoration and a great way to practice stranded colowork!

5 / We published our annual Holiday Gift Guide this year, and focused on topics and items near and dear to our hearts: Raising Smart Girls, Books, and Animal Rescue.

6 / December was a food-heavy month (as it should be!) and we couldn't get enough of these knit pies by Lorna and Jill Watt, originally published for pi day.

7 / Both my father and husband love pecan pie, and this King Arthur Flour recipe (no cornsyrup!) is my go-to. 

8 / Paulina Bart was one of the artists we recommended you follow last month. I don't know what I love more, her amazing embroideries, or that adorable pup of hers!

9 / Nail artist Ash Crowe creates mini-masterpieces every time she does a manicure. Kinda puts my quick "file and topcoat" to shame, eh?!

10 / Meghan and I had the opportunity to meet Lisa Belsky at the PMA Craft show, and were blown away by her amazing work. (Once we told her we also knit and crocheted, she geeked out a little on all of the stitch patterns she used and why - such lovely insight into an artists work!)

Designer Feature Round Up: Sweaters For Fall/Winter 2017

There have been quite a few recently published garment designs in The Fibre Co. yarns that are worth bringing to your attention - and surely some of you with more free time than I could manage to whip one up for a friend or loved one as a gift??

CHARLES PULLOVER: MICHELLE WANG / WOOL STUDIO VOLUME III

The 3rd Wool Studio was just released, and this time the issue is ten pieces all by designer Michelle Wang. A menswear-inspired collection, she designed this lovely oversized turtleneck, Charles in The Fibre Co. Arranmore in the color Brannagh.

MOUNT LORNE PULLOVER: ANDREA CULL / INTERWEAVE KNITS WINTER 2018

Newish designer Andrea Cull skillfully combined modern styling with classic patterning in her Mount Lorne Pullover from Interweave Knits Winter 2018. Designed using The Fibre Co. Cumbria, the end result is a gorgeous yoke pullover with limitless color combination possibilities!

EIRA PULLOVER: LINDA MARVENG / KNIT.WEAR FALL/WINTER 2017

Another classic beauty in The Fibre Co. Cumbria, Linda Marveng designed the Eira Pullover for the Fall/Winter 2017 Knit.Wear. I have been binge watching Season 1 of The Crown before starting Season 2, and there is something to perfectly 50's about this classic fitted waist-length sweater. It would look so good with one of Elizabeth's fit and flare dresses!

TENSHO PULLOVER: BEATRICE PERRON DAHLEN / SUMI KNITS

Designer Beatrice Perron Dahlen's latest collection, Sumi Knits, is a continuation of her featured collection from Knitscene Fall 2016. Beatrice was inspired by Tenshō Shūbun, a 14th century artist when she designed this gorgeous geometric yoke sweater, the Tensho Pullover, again in The Fibre Co. Cumbria.

Which one is your favorite??
