April 8,9 & 10: Northern CA Handweavers Guild Conference

Our boxes have already arrived in Modesto and I will be heading out there mid-week so Solitude Wool can represent at the Conference of Northern California Handweavers (AKA CNCH, or cinch). This is a regional association of five different Guilds, and I've heard some high praise of these folks from weavers out here. Excited to show off four new handwoven samples from four different weavers and four different Solitude yarns: Coopworth lace weight, Montadale light, Border Leicester re-twist and Llama-rama! We will also have skeins of yarn for knitting and crochet. We have quite a number of online customers from Northern California, and I hope I get the chance to meet many of you. Come to Modesto!

my experience growing and using weld for natural dye. One of the best and most light fast of the local yellows, it's easy to grow if you can get seed and plant at the right time. Following is how I harvested and dyed yarn and roving.
