Cia, who represents Louet Yarns, visited the Grove yesterday. She designed this beautiful sweater, appropriately named "Cia", made of Kidlin (a linen, mohair blend) which has to been seen in person. It is beautiful and is now being translated for up to 2X so it will fit anyone.
In addition to carrying Euroflax, Kidlin, Gems, Merlin, etc. etc., Louet now distributes "Soak", a gentle no-rinse
liquid soap designed to clean hand knit garments without stripping them of their natural oils. Also, Soak also makes these very cool labels to sew into hand-knitted garments that say a variety of things. MUST HAVE THEM, is what I told Cia.
We decided that it would be great fun to have a 1-day trunk show of 7 or 8 garments knit in the above-referenced yarns that everyone could try on. We'll have the color cards available, so if we don't have the color you want, you'll be able to special order any one you desire. And, we'll be giving out free samples of "Soak". Hopefully, we'll have the tags in by that time also.
Drum roll...the date is Sunday, June 14th from 1-5 pm. For those of you on our email list, you'll get a reminder in our June Newsletter. If you're not on our email list and want to be, just clink on the Grove link on my blog.
