Friday, February 7
1:00 – 6:00 pm
Join us for an exclusive look at Rowan’s latest design line. MODE at Rowan is a new collection that highlights Rowan’s modern takes on classic pieces. The models are presented in soft, neutral tones so you can imagine how they’ll look on you in your favorite colors.
These designs are super wearable, and supremely knittable, too! The MODE pattern book shows all 18 designs combined in a variety of ensembles, so you can plan a whole Rowan MODE outfit. These are all so cool, you will want to sit down with your needles and start knitting immediately!
In addition to the main MODE pattern book, we also have a limited supply of mini pattern collections featuring MODE designs (pictured below). These booklets are free with the purchase of yarn to knit one of the four projects featured inside. True to the MODE design aesthetic, these patterns are beautifully wearable pieces. Come get yours while supplies last!
And we’ll see you on February 7th, to see and feel these gorgeous garments in person!
Holiday Gifts at Northwest Wools
With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your gift lists: both what you plan to give others, and those items you want to add to your own wish list! For either one, we’ve got you covered with an array of items that will delight any Fiber Artist.
We’ve got a large selection of beautiful ceramic yarn bowls and matching mugs from Master Potter Frank Philipps. Frank has been making pottery in the Bauhaus tradition for almost 40 years, combining function and beauty in every hand-made piece.
Frank Phillips Pottery is based in Ashland, Oregon. When you buy one of Frank’s bowls or mugs, you are not only purchasing a unique piece of art, you are also supporting an Oregon artist. Northwest Wools is proud to support Frank Philipps Pottery, and thrilled to be the exclusive Portland vendor of these one-of-a-kind yarn bowls.
Interchangeable knitting needle sets are high on many knitters’ wish lists, and we have sets in a number of varieties and price ranges. We also have crochet hook sets for the crochet enthusiast in your life. And for crafters of all stripes, we have a variety of needle and hook storage cases, books, project bags and yarn caddies — some hand-made by Northwest Wools Instructor Judy!
We love our new Northwest Wools Project Bags. These stylish bags were designed exclusively for our shop by Heidi West Designs, and come in two different patterns. They feature internal pockets and plenty of space for your projects, and the zippered top stands open like a doctor’s bag! What a chic and practical gift for anyone on your list (including you!)!
We have lots of popular yarn kits to choose from, or we can help you build your own. The Plant Pot Cozy Kit comes with yarn, pattern and adorable ceramic button. You can give the kit itself as a gift, or, if you have time, crochet it yourself and add a plant for an extra special present.
And if you’re looking for something unique, browse our selection of locally dyed and sourced yarns. These exquisite yarns are the type of luxury item we don’t always buy for ourselves, but covet every time we’re in the yarn store! That special skein is sure to make any fiber artist smile.
Tools that make crafting easier are always a hit. We have umbrella swifts and ball winders so you can wind your yarn skeins quickly and neatly. Or treat your favorite crafter to a Coco Knits Maker’s Keep. This handy magnetic bracelet gives you a place to stick your stitch markers, cable needles and other metallic items so they’re right there when you need them.
And what better gift is there for a fiber enthusiast than a trip to the yarn store? If you’d like to give the gift of an experience as well as something material, consider a Northwest Wools Gift Certificate. We can create one for you in any dollar amount you choose. The recipient is sure to enjoy browsing our colorful, fiber-filled shelves, dreaming up new projects.
It’s not too late to create a handmade gift for that special someone!
There’s still time to make one-of-a-kind gifts for your family, friends and loved ones. We have one of the largest yarn and fiber inventories in town, including a large selection of beautiful bulky and super bulky yarns, and fast, easy patterns, so you can finish your handmade gifts quickly. Check out our shop models for inspiration!
The Golden Tickets Program offers great holiday deals and supports shopping local.
Once again, we will be participating in this popular shop-local program. Earn a 10% discount on commercial yarn at our shop when you bring us a Golden Ticket from someone else.

Come see what’s new from Rowan!
We’re excited to share an abundance of hand-crafted Rowan garments with you at our Fall Rowan Trunk Show. We’ll have sweaters, wraps and accessories created by some of Rowan’s best-loved designers from such yarns as Moordale, Felted Tweed, Kidsilk Haze and Kid Classic.
The Trunk Show is a great place to explore how the various yarns feel when knitted or crocheted, and to try on some of these amazing styles. We also have plenty of Rowan books and magazines to give you some ideas for your next project.
So join us on November 15, and get your Rowan on!
