We're excited to participate in the CCYC this year and we hope you are too! Follow our Events Page on Facebook and stay tuned for more info! 

But in the meantime... Did you know that there will be prizes given away? 

Each shop will have a different prize package valued at $100 or more, which will be given away at the end of the crawl. To participate in the drawing, collect at least 8 stamps on your CCYC passport from your shop visits between April 6th – April 15th, 2018. Shops will stamp your CCYC passport for visiting as long as you bring your CCYC tote. No other purchase is necessary for a stamp. Each shop will offer a different prize, so you may choose where to submit your entry. Drop your card off at the shop of your choice by April 22nd, 2018. Winners will be announced by each shop after April 22nd, 2018.



Our Annapolis shop grand prize is donated by Sirdar. It includes a Rowan booklet and 15 colors of Rowan Selects Handknit Cotton to make the Dynamic Stripe scarf pattern, designed by Kaffe Fassett! The prize also includes the new Rowan Magazine Number 63.


Our Rockville shop grand prize is donated by Kelbourne Woolens. It includes ten skeins of Kelbourne Woolens newest addition, Andorra - a 2-ply Merino wool, Highland wool, and mohair blended yarn in a lovely lavender color. The Season 1.0/Winter 2017-2018 look book is also included.

Have you seen the latest Vogue Knitting magazine?! Our WW staffer Flo is in one of the pictures! We always knew she'd go big time! 

Luv you Flo! 💜


And to continuing touting our FAMOUS WW staffers.... Karen modeled her amazing Union Jack Cardi (pattern by Brandon Mably) at Vogue Knitting Live! in NYC last weekend! Karen used Rowan Felted Tweed and looks amazing in this beautiful piece of art!

Take some time to slow down, relax, find warm fibers, and sign up for a class with a project or technique you want to learn. Go ahead -- you deserve it! Have a look at our upcoming February & March classes, featured below. Register for the one that is right for you -- go to or call the shop today! 


Oh the COLORS!

It's clear that COLOR is the trend for the season. And what better yarn celebrates color than Freia Ombre? With the long color runs of Freia Ombre Super Bulky, you'll want the colors to be the star of your finished piece. As you work with this yarn each color will gradually shift into the next to create an ombre masterpiece! This super bulky yarn is a single ply that require a little extra care and attention, so be sure to always hand wash your Freia Ombre knits.

With just one or two skeins you can work up fantastic hats and cowls that will keep you warm and stylish throughout the winter months. Check out all of our different colorways and find your perfect bulky pattern by stopping by the WoolWinders Rockville shop. We love helping you find your next project!

June Cashmere is HOT HOT HOT!

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!

15 Years!

We're excited to celebrate WoolWinders turning 15 later this summer! Just wanted to let you know to start watching this space... we'll be having a 15 years celebration bash!
