June Cashmere is HOT HOT HOT!

Suzy Roy

It's no secret that WoolWinders is a huge fan of June Cashmere. If you missed out on the Annapolis or Rockville trunk shows don't worry because we now carry June Cashmere DK yarns at both shops! This luxurious yarn is perfect for heirloom knits. Textured stitches, such as the cables found on this cabled cowl, stand out beautifully. With feature articles on June Cashmere in the recent Vogue Knitting and Interweave Knits magazines, we know this yarn is a hot trend in the making!

Trend Alert!!

Suzy Roy

As seen in the current Vogue Knitting Magazine and this past weekend at Vogue Knitting LIVE! - Yoke Sweaters!



Yoke sweaters are currently a HOT knitting project - but these beautiful sweaters have a rich history. For example, the iconic Icelandic sweater was created to keep you warm during cold, winter months. 

There are many yoke sweater patterns - and we encourage you to check out Ravelry for some ideas.

Need help with your sweater? The WoolWinders Safari Classes - a monthly class where you bring in the project you want, is a perfect class where you can get help with your yoke sweater knitting. We also have Sweater Academy, a monthly class in Rockville, where you can work on the sweater of your choice.


Maybe you would like some ideas for yarn for your yoke sweater? Malabrigo RiosShepherd's Wool, and BlueFaced Leicester are yarns that come to mind. Stop by Annapolis or Rockville to see our full selection of worsted weight yarns!
