Malabrigo in Arabia

We just shipped our first order to the United Arab Emirates, it seems that knitting is very hot there!

They have a group of knitters there that get together regularly to knit, called very appropriately Desert Knitters.

As my friend Hal likes to say, Knitting is Universal!

We are in Atlanta for the Sitches South show, yesterday we stopped by Needle Nook, a lovely local yarn shop, to pick some boxes up.

We had the opportunity to lunch with the charming Arlene, (the owner of the store and the "owner" of the Arlene's Purple) at a great Thai restaurant that's right besides the store. Thanks Arlene for letting us ship the boxes to your shop, and thanks for all the industry insights you shared.

Arlene made a fantastic shawl out of the Malabrigo Lace in Natural, it is one of the many garments she knitted with our yarns, the pattern is from the Victoria Lace book and uses less than two skeins.

and of course we could not leave without taking a picture at one of the many malabrigo "hotspots" in the store, this one was for the worsted weight

Visits from Nevada!

Sharon from Nevada came visiting last week, she was very excited about the yarn and about all the colors that were available at the warehouse.
Mariana from the lab took her to a tour all around the mill and the warehouse, she could see how we dyed and do all the work.
Sharon got a preview of all the new colors in the making and of course before she left she got herself a few bags of yarn.



She came escorted by a very happy husband who ended up picking up the tab!

A very happy husband
