LY Happenings

Can't wait for shearing season! Our sheep this year are like Josephs's coat--the "fleece  with many colors"--palest creams (Snow) to darkest, deepest browns (Susie). And check out Pony! Is there some way to make a variegated yarn from his fleece? We'll find out in March!

GARDEN STATE SHEEP BREEDERS FESTIVAL

Colleen Puckett

Sheep and wool shows always make our hearts beat a little faster, whether we're visitors or vendors. We love seeing all the different breeds, the sheep dog trials, and, of course, the fleeces and yarns.

We now begin the countdown to our first sheep and wool festival of the 2017-18 season: in two weeks, we'll be vending at the Garden State Sheep Breeders Festival.

Come join us, September 9 from 10-5, and September 10 from 10-4. We'll be in BARN 1, and are looking forward to showing you our new yarns, colors and designs!

Information on the show can be found here: http://njsheep.net/festival/

See you there!

Spring has sprung!

Colleen Puckett

Are you strictly a winter knitter, or do you indulge your passion all year long? This past weekend at Steel City Fiber Festival we met lots of year-round knitters who stocked up on yarn so that they will always have a project at hand.

Oct. 1 Liverpool Yarns Trunk Show a Blast!

Colleen Puckett

Saturday, October 1, dawned cold and dreary-a perfect day to cozy up to some warm yarn. And cozy up they did-at the Liverpool Yarns trunk show at Loop, local yarn store extraordinaire, on South St. in Philadelphia. Knitters far and wide came to squeeze, fondle and choose their favorite naturally colored Shetland wool yarn to start those fall and winter projects. It was a lot of fun. Thank you, Craig and Laura, for hosting us!

And a good time was had by all--at Knitter's Day Out!

Colleen Puckett

Hope you had as good a time as we did at Knitter's Day Out! It was a pleasure getting to meet so many of you--talented knitters, teachers, and fellow purveyors of yarn, notions, project bags, and anything else you can possibly dream of related to the wonderful world of fiber arts! Wasn't it fun? We are already looking forward to next year!

2016 Yarns are Here!

Colleen Puckett

And they are yummier than ever. This year we have many creams, an interesting tweedy dark gray, and a lovely mid-range brown. See how they knit up in our Urban Lookbook. New patterns will be posted soon!

The Fleeces Have Left the Building. . . .

Dropping off Saturday at Sweitzer's Mill. 

First, we open up the bags of fleece to sort by color. . . .

A pleasure doing business with you, Sweitzer's Mill! See you in May!

Have You Any Wool?

Colleen Puckett

Yes, we have wool! Bags and bags full!

On Saturday, we drove up to Liverpool Farm to watch Carl, master shearer, work his skills on our flock.

He sheared the nine rams first, who were put in the upper pasture, and then worked on the sixteen ewes. They got to graze outside the pen and run around a little before being rounded up again. We always forget how little the sheep are under that woolly layer!

The fleeces have such a range and depth of color. It's amazing to see how the color of the outer fleece can be so different from the color of the inner fleece. We couldn't resist plunging our hands in and feeling how thick and soft the fleeces are.

And we managed to fit all thirteen bags of fleece in the car!

Shearing season coming soon. . .

Colleen Puckett

Can't wait for shearing season! Our sheep this year are like Joseph's coat--"fleeces with many colors"--from purest white (Snow) to the deepest, darkest browns (Susie). And check out Pony! Is there some way to make a variegated yarn from her fleece? We'll find out in March!
