Needle + Purl
Knitwear Designer, LYS Owner, Finished Object/Notion Maker
I sell goods and tools for fiber makers - knit, crochet, embroidery, weaving and mending - with a focus on connecting makers with small batch, natural, and local wool in our fibershed and beyond, and finding good uses for good wool!
My ideal customer:
My ideal customer is a lover of non-superwash yarn who understands the importance of local farms to our community, appreciates the sustainability of naturally dyed and small-batch yarns, and wants to experience more textures and colors in their crafting by using these (and that crafting can be stitching, weaving and mending, too)!
