Woolwinders is happy to introduce 29 Bridges Studio to our local knitting community. The yarn for 29 Bridges Studio is hand dyed right here in Maryland by local indie-dyer, Mary Herron. Woolwinders worked directly with Mary to offer you some exclusive color pairings just for this trunk show!
Mary will be on hand at Woolwinders for portions of the Trunk Show. Drop by to meet her and learn more about her dying process, the specialty yarns she selects, and the inspirations for her colors.
During the two weeks of the trunk show schedule, Mary will be available in the shop on the following dates:
ANNAPOLIS - August 18 & 19 (Saturday and Sunday)
ROCKVILLE - August 25 & 26 (Saturday and Sunday)
Natural Fibers - Earthy, Calm, Cozy Colors!
The yarns of 29 Bridges Studio are inspired by life's landscapes and experiences - from gorgeous neutrals to vibrant bright colors. The Free Your Fade shawl is just one example of a project that knits up beautifully with Mary's yarns. We'll have this and many more samples for you to squeeze and be inspired by at both the Annapolis and Rockville Trunk Shows. We can help you pick out the perfect palette for your fall project!
