There’s a lot of talk these days about handmade. Generally, we think of a finished product when we here that term “handmade.” Did you know that even the fiber we knitters and crocheters use can be handmade?
Meet Anzula yarn. They hand-dye yarns and fibers made from the most luxurious fibers in the world like cashmere, camel, silk, linen, SeaCell, alpaca, yak, and milk protein. Think about that. The fiber is hand dyed! Talk about the art of yarn crafting. This is absolutely beautiful fiber!
I am just in love with these fluffy tufts of color. This is what spinners are into. Think Sleeping Beauty. Spinners take this fiber and spin it into yarn used for crafting. That takes it to a whole other level!
Here’s what Anzula says about the shows they are doing across the country:
“Our model to do this is the three hour trunk show. We come to your yarn shop with all of our vintage suitcases filled to the brim with yarn, our knits and patterns from a bunch of the amazing designers we work with. We help you find the perfect color, help size you for your projects and even discuss the pros and cons of our yarns for specific projects. One of my favorite things is helping knitters and crocheters figure out how to size themselves and their patterns to make something they will love and enjoy wearing.”
I was lucky enough to see this trunk show at The Yarn Club here in Virginia Beach. It was tough to get the pictures, because of the HUGE crowd that came out! It was super fun, and I am so happy I got to meet so many wonderful people and see such sumptuous fiber and knits in person.
