Stitch Exchange: Habu Trunk Show

This weekend the shop will be overflowing with Habu Textiles yarn. There will be nearly 100 sweater samples knit out of Habu.

Habu yarn is unique in that a number of it is sourced from small Japanese mills who have been spinning yarn to produce Japanese textiles for generations. It is fascinating to witness the transition this yarn has made from traditionally used in weaving in Japan to be now used for knitting in the US. Much of the yarn Habu offers is unlike any other yarn found on the market today. The content, pineapple fiber for instance, and the construction, paper, are really an amazing little world to wander through.

Julie Weisenberger of Cocoknits uses Habu yarn in a number of her knitting patterns and will be on hand to help guide you with your Habu yarn and pattern combination.

Takako and Julie are hosting two yarn tastings this weekend. Click here to learn more and to sign up.
