The Yarns - June Cashmere

Today we continue our feature of June Cashmere, the luxury cashmere yarn company that will be featured at the WoolWinders Annapolis Open House on Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th. 

June Cashmere yarn has only been on the market for a year, expanding from a few colors to now offering a dozen naturally dyed hues. There are two weights of yarn (DK and lace) in plies of three and six strands. This allows for incredible stitch definition in knitting. The stitches bloom upon washing, showing off the softness of the fiber. This is a luxury yarn that any fiber artist would love to work with and anyone would love to receive as a gift, either as a skein or knit up in a scarf and hat set. Simply, it's warm and beautiful!

 

 

The Commitment - About June Cashmere

Today we continue our feature of June Cashmere, the luxury cashmere yarn company that will be featured at the WoolWinders Annapolis Open House on Saturday, October 14th and Sunday, October 15th. 

June Cashmere actively invests in the communities where cashmere is gathered. They promote village-to-village training sessions teaching best practices for increasing the quantity and quality of cashmere fiber production.

This textile company truly cares about producing a luxury yarn that in turn provides betterment for Kyrgyz families. June Cashmere prides itself on restoring cashmere to its most pure and luxurious form with a process that ensures Kyrgyz traditions are not lost. Such an investment in people and resources shows that June Cashmere is a gem of a company that we are thrilled to help support. 

About our featured company & yarn - June Cashmere

June Cashmere started with the vision of J.C. Christensen and his family, owners of Morning Star Fiber, located in North Carolina. In 2007, they met a group of Kyrgyz artisans and became aware of the need for revitalization in the Kyrgyz fiber industry. Shortly thereafter, Christensen connected with Sy Belohlavek from Ohio, who had previously worked in Kyrgyzstan. Belohlavek was drawn toward the idea of working with the Kyrgyz people and revitalizing their fiber industry. In 2010 Belohlavek, with his wife and children, moved to Kyrgyzstan to begin working toward making the the vision of June Cashmere a reality.

Over the next few days check back here, on our blog, to learn more about this amazing company!

Taking a moment

There are some days where you just have to take a moment to relax. Enjoy. Take a moment to breathe. Luckily we have two cute shops where we can do that! So take a moment with your favorite cuppa and your knitting/crochet. Take a seat. And enjoy the moment!

Fall for NEW Classes at WoolWinders!

We could go on and on about how we love cool, crisp mornings, bright sunshiny afternoons, freshly-harvested produce, colorful landscapes, and all of the feelings that lend perfectly to our favorite hobbies - knitting and crocheting!  This time of year gives us good reason to stock up on fall favorite yarns and to begin knitting and wearing sweaters and other knitwear. This is why we are so excited to bring you our new Fall and Early Winter classes. The class lineup  features our foundation classes like Knitting 101 and Fixing Mistakes, as well as new sock, technique and project classes. And many of you have been asking, so we’ve added a couple sweater classes - for humans and pups!  Hoping to see you at Rockville or Annapolis soon!

Check out our classes!
