Local Yarn Store Day: Everything's Coming up Zinnias!

Local Yarn Store Day is right around the corner! Join us this Saturday, April 29th between 10am until 4pm for this year's festivities! Both Lou from Old Rusted Chair and Rin from Modus Operandi will be in-store early in the day and Vicki from Black Cat Bags will likely be slinging yarn behind the counter.

As usual, we've gone zinnia-crazy once again. Bouquets and bouquets of zinnias!

Hope to see you Saturday!

Local Yarn Store Day: Zinnias from Old Rusted Chair

Lou from Old Rusted Chair (ORC) dyed up "Haus Zinnias" just for us and each skein is 400 yards of sock weight 80/20 SW Merino/nylon goodness! This is a spectacular speckled ode to spring with an incredibly rich combination of gorgeous color! Lou will also be setting up a pop-up shop, bringing plenty of soy + beeswax candles and ice-dyed napkins, tea towels and art, along with other awesome bits and bobs.

ORC's Zinnia colorway is live now and available HERE!

Local Yarn Store Day: Zinnias from Modus Operandi Fibers

Are you sensing a theme? Rin from MoFibers dyed up her own gorgeous "Haus Zinnias" colorway also! Available in two different weights (a Merino/silk fingering weight and a lace weight Mohair/Silk combo), each skein is 438 yards of zinnia-dyed awsomeness. Both are naturally dyed using zinnias grown by Meg and her friends, speckled with pink lac, grey purple logwood, and Nashville-grown yellow marigolds from Rin's own can't get more local than that!

MoFibers Silky Fingering and Lace Mohair in Zinnia are both live now and available HERE!

Local Yarn Store Day: Zinnias from Manos del Uruguay!

And...just one more! Manos del Uruguay dyed up this gorgeous zinnia-themed Fino Mini Skein Kit just for Haus and we couldn't be more tickled at the results! Each kit contains five 20g-mini skeins of a Merino/Silk blend fingering weight and also includes a pattern for Shadow Cowl (pictured above).

Manos Fino Bundles are live now and available HERE!

Local Yarn Store Day: Black Cat Bags!

Our very own Vicki (with no e) from Black Cat Bags will be with us all day (uhm, err...she'll be the one running the register!) with her impeccably sewn box bag projects bags! After several years of NOT SEWING...she's back at it and will have a pile of her gorgeous bags available for Local Yarn Store Day!
