Shaggy Bear Farms Pop-Up Shop
Friday, September 7, 10 am – 6 pm

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 fiber.

Cowl knit from Shaggy Bear Farms wool

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.

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. Many 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 unique breeds.

Whether you knit, crochet, spin 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.

A small Washington Snohomish county Stitch ‘N Bitch group initiated the first yarn train in 2005 to spend time together knitting and yarn shopping. Since then the event has grown to more than 200+ folks who come to Portland to shop for their favorite product, knit while in transit and meet other knitters.
