Heritage News

Holiday Bazaar

This is the one day of the year when you can find “ready made” goods in the shop, rather than “do it yourself.” With a festive atmosphere, we will have extended hours on Sunday, December 3, from 11 to 5. You can’t go wrong giving handmade. More info here. We’ve got a great line up of artisans:

Napkin Exchange

Are you a weaver that is up for a challenge? We are kicking off a napkin exchange (the group needed a break from towels). Jae has come up with a challenge and each weaver will work from a selection of colors and provide 6 napkins for exchange and will receive 6 napkins in return. Details are in this PDF. All are welcome to participate: but if you are participating from long-distance, we ask that you pay for return postage — include $10 with your towels for US mailing. If you are outside the US, we will work with you on postage reimbursement. Purchase your yarn at the shop (or via email) and we will include a bonus gift. Just remind us when you check out!

30″ Cherry Schacht Reeves Double Treadle Spinning Wheel

New and used wheels, looms and yarn

Did you know that in addition to new products, we also have a special area of the store for second hand items. Call them “previously loved,” if you will. We just received a HUGE shipment of nearly 2100 skeins of yarn. Nearly every one with name brands like Debbie Bliss, Noro, Koigu, and Mountain Colors, to name a few. In addition, I’ve just updated our Used Equipment page here on the website so you can browse our current selection of used wheels and looms. The wheel pictured at left is available to beautify your home and your spinning. It is an amazing work of art as well as a tool of the highest quality.

Heritage: Your one stop shop for Shetland and Norwegian yarns!

fairisleflowernorwegianbook

Our selection of Norwegian yarns has expanded! We now have Tumi, a fingering weight alpaca/wool blend that is scrumptious. It will substitute in patters calling for Finullgarn or Spindrift. It is the yarn specified in the current issue of Interweave Knits for the Endless Rose Cowl (which will be a shop sample very soon).

Did you know that we carry the ENTIRE line of Jamieson’s Spindrift–you will find color cards at the link at the top of this page and you will find one to purchase in the Fair Isle knitting book section. We also have Jamieson’s Ultra Lace and their authentic Shetland cobweb yarn.

We carry Rauma Norwegian yarns for sweater and accessory knitting and for weaving, specifically: Strikkegarn, Finullgarn, Prydvevgarn, Tumi, Mitu and a bit of PT5 Sport and Pandora Cotton. Be sure to visit the pattern and book pages to view patterns straight from Norway in both traditional and modern designs.
