Shaggy Bear Farms Pop-up Shop

Saturday, March 9th
10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Meet Wendy Hanson on Saturday at this one-day Pop-up Shop, and learn about her very special yarns and fibers from Shaggy Bear Farms. Wendy runs a “farm to needle” operation, managing a flock of over 400 animals, many of which are rescue animals. So your purchases not only support Wendy, but also all of these wonderful animals she has saved.
Wendy knows all 400+ of her animals by name and sings to them as she shears them. She even has a one-legged duck that lives in her bathtub and suggests new yarn colors.
Wendy’s inventory truly has something for everyone: Beautiful, vibrant colors as well as undyed, natural hues; buttery soft merino/silk blends and rugged, “crunchy” yarns. Most of Wendy’s yarns are blends of fibers from her many breeds of animals. There are a variety of yarn weights to choose from, as well as undyed roving from her many unique and rare breeds.
Come check out all of the many fiber combinations in Wendy’s yarns and fibers, and meet Wendy herself. You will leave knowing a lot more about the life of a small independent farmer and dyer and her many breeds of animals.
