Welcome, Germantown, a yarn that reaches back through the history of US crafting to the early 1800s, when the name “Germantown” referred not to a specific brand of yarn but simply to good-quality worsted-spun wool spun in Germantown, Pennsylvania. Read more. . .

Welcome Vesper Sock to Spun! We are excited to introduce you to this sweet stripey goodness, from Merino fiber sourced and milled in the US and hand-dyed in Southeast Michigan. Julia Vesper has been dyeing yarn since early 2005, creating self-striping colorways in cheerful five- to eight-color repeats that shouldn’t always languish under shoes. Please join us to welcome Julia to Spun for a Kerrytown First Fridays happy hour, from 4 to 6pm.
Due to the extreme snow, we have cancelled our party tonight.
Wool Elements is a compilation of nine accessory designs that are at once simple and luxurious, each crafted to highlight Woolfolk's new warm, tawny browns but perfect for any of the colors in Woolfolk's sophisticated palette. We'll be getting the collection in the shop starting Friday, February 2. If you've never knit with Woolfolk yarn before, here is a perfect opportunity: these patterns are straightforward, and many can be knit with just two skeins. Note too that for the first time Woolfolk has published the patterns in the Wool Elements collection as a small booklet, which is available for sale at the shop in limited quantities.
We will only have this collection in the shop through Sunday, February 11, with a special happy hour reception on Friday, February 9, from 4-6 pm. We will enjoy the usual: drinks, treats, door prizes, and the chance to share in each other's warm company in this cold season. Please make plans to join us!
