Upcoming Festivals + Wool@J13 Giveaway!

Festival season is well and truly upon us, and we’ll be at several wool shows over the coming months! As a mainly online business, it is always such a treat to venture out of the office and meet old and new friends at yarn-y events!

Jen goes to Rhinebeck!, Rhinebeck, NY, 19-20 October — I’ve always wanted to go to Rhinebeck, and this year IT’S HAPPENING!
