Yarn Swap

April 9th, 2016 at Jackson’s Falls Country Inn

2 pm to 4:30 pm

Jackson’s Falls Country Inn

1768 County Road 17 Milford

This is a free event for the whole community!

Bring along full balls or skeins of yarn that you are interested in trading with someone. We will be doing the swap in a way that you will be swapping yarns of equal value with the yarn that you bring in.

Any yarns that are leftover after the swap will be going to a group of charity knitters.

Also bring along any knitting magazines, books or patterns that you are tired of and want to trade as well!

Quince & Co. Yarns Exclusive to Rosehaven!!

Hello all!

We are thrilled to announce that we have officially been invited to be a flagship store for the Quince & Co. Yarn Company. 

This is especially exciting for Canadians because we will be the only store in Ontario to carry their yarn and only the 2nd place in Canada to have it. The only other shop is Espace Tricot in Montreal.

Quince & Co. offers wool yarns that are sourced and spun in the US. Known in the trade as “territory wool,” their wool comes from Merino, Rambouillet, and Columbia-based sheep that roam the ranges of Montana and Wyoming. All Their wool and wool-blend yarns are spun in New England mills with venerable histories. By sourcing their wool in the US and manufacturing their yarn locally, they minimize their carbon footprint.

When Quince looks for an animal fiber, they want to know if the animal was raised in a way that sustains the earth and preserves the culture of the people who care for it.

We have been carrying their two 100% linen yarns, Sparrow and Kestrel since this past spring and it has been well loved by our customers that have bought and made garments with it. One person’s description of the Sparrow was that it turned to butter in your hands as you knit it. Yum!
 

 

 

Now we are just waiting for the boxes to arrive of  Quince’s Chickadee, Lark, Osprey and Puffin in lots of luscious colours.
