Shopcast 178: Introducing Our Own Yarn - Rambler!

By Caitlin Johnson


On this episode, Corinne and Maggie have lots to show us! We have a fresh batch of Junction Fiber Mill yarns, lots of sweater knitting talk, our 12 Days of Christmas Box, and the West Yorkshire Spinners Holiday sock yarn! And last but not least, we're thrilled to introduce our very own sock yarn, Rambler! Tune in to hear how we've worked with Battenkill Fibers mill to create this special yarn. We also visit Rachel on Fair Isle, hear from Caitlin about her Sweater KAL project, and finish off with a yoga practice with Kim.
