It’s almost time for one of our favorite events at Northwest Wools! Wendy Hanson of Shaggy Bear Farms will be here once again with a roomful of fabulous yarns and fibers.

Wendy runs a “Farm to Needle” operation in Scio, Oregon, where she tends a flock of more than 400 animals and hand-dyes her yarns. Wendy knows all of her animals by name, and sings to them as she shears them! She can tell you all about the various “characters” on her farm, many of whom are rescue animals. So your purchases not only support Wendy, but also all of these wonderful animals she has saved.

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. No matter what project you have in mind, you’re bound to find yarn for it at this pop-up shop!

Spinners take note: Wendy will have lots of undyed roving from her unique breeds. This is a great opportunity to stock up on your favorite fibers!

Whether you knit, crochet, spin, felt or weave, you are bound to find something you love at this First Friday event! Come on by and meet Wendy – you will learn a lot more about the life of an independent farmer and dyer.
