North Light Fibers at Knit One Quilt Too
November 14, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Knit One Quilt Too is proud to carry yarn from Block Island’s North Light Fibers.
As part of its introduction to our store, Sven & Laura Risom from North Light Fibers will lead a hands-on discussion about how handcrafted minimally processed yarn is made in their Micro Yarn Mill on Block Island.
During the discussion, you will get to:
- Handle raw cashmere, yak, merino wool, bamboo, and alpaca.
- Learn what guard hair is and how important crimp and fineness are to yarn quality.
- Learn why North Light Fibers steams all of its yarn as well as how they blend the fibers together to give the ultimate knit.
- Enjoy wine and cheese, ask questions, and meet some great people.
This event is free.
