One of the yarn lines we have been anxiously awaiting arrival of this Fall is the new Juniper Moon Farm yarns! And to celebrate her new yarns, we are hosting a trunk show!
Susan Gibbs of Juniper Moon Farm will be here Tuesday, November 1 from 5 – 8 p.m. to sign pattern books and talk about her farm and her gorgeous new yarns.
First of all, if you don’t read her blog, STOP. Open her blog right now and bookmark it. It is fabulous. It’s full of beautiful pictures of her flock, pictures of her travels, wonderful cooking tips, links to super stylish finds on the web, and so much more.
Secondly, be sure to come to the Juniper Moon trunk show here at Knitters Mercantile! Mark your calendar – Tuesday, November 1 from 5 – 8 p.m.
And here is some info about her 3 new yarns.
A 60% Merino, 40% Super Fine Kid Mohair blend in a bulky weight with an ice cream cone twist. Susan wanted to make this yarn particularly because so many knitters think they don’t like mohair. She says if you don’t like mohair it’s because you’ve never knit with good mohair. Super Fine Kid Mohair doesn’t have any of the itch associated with lesser quality mohair, it’s gloriously soft and has a lovely sheen.
Findley is Juniper Moon’s lace yarn, 50% Merino 50% Silk, 100% luscious. At nearly 800 yard, you’ll be super happy that it’s in a ball, rather than a hank you have to wind! The yarn is super smooth with a beautiful sheen. It’s soft, doesn’t split and it feel A.MAZ.ING when it’s knitted up. And it comes in 12 lovely colors.
This yarn is named for one of Susan’s personal heros. Alan Chadwick was a leading innovator of organic farming techniques and brought biodynamic farming to America.This yarn is so special, so soft and so lofty that you may never want to knit with anything else. 60% Merino Wool/40% Baby Alpaca. Single ply. 3.5 oz. 202 yards in a center pull ball.
