I absolutely love diving deep into the specific, nerdy details of yarn and yarn production, and judging by the response to Ch 103 where we interviewed Sue from Blacker Yarn, you feel the same! So I’m delighted to welcome Sonja Bargielowska, also from Blacker Yarn this week for another intensive discussion about British breed-specific wool and blends, especially the wonderful new Tamar lustre yarn, which will be launching on the 3rd of March.
Meadow Yarn is an inviting online retailer selling yarn, needles and notions. It’s a small, family business based in rural Suffolk in the UK. Meadow Yarn was born out of a passion for beautiful yarn and knitting accessories and aims to bring you a range of great products. Yarns stocked include madelinetosh, Eden Cottage Yarn, the Fibre Co and many more

A big thanks to Sonja for joining us today. She and Blacker Yarn will debut Tamar at the The Edinburgh Yarn Festival, March 18 to 19, 2016. They are sponsoring the podcast lounge, giving a workshop, and sharing those amazing free patterns. I’ll be there as well, and I hope to see some of you! Until next week, happy knitting!
