  • Getting Ready

    Fall is here and that means it is officially knitting (and crocheting!) season.  Winter will be here soon so it's time to make some warm, cozy and woolly wears for us and those we love.    It also means that Tolt Yarn and Wool needs to open!  Be sure to check your email (if you are on our email list), Facebook, Instagram or our Website for our official Grand Opening date which we will be announcing very soon!

    I have assembled an amazing staff including my manager, Clare, who has been very busy helping me get the shop ready to open.   There is so much to do and I need all the help I can get! 

    My husband has been doing last minute finish work on the building and once that is done he will start building more fixtures for the shop.  We have moved in some of the antique furniture that I have collected over the past few months and once all the products have been entered into our computer system, we can start stocking the shelves. 

     

    We will have some amazing lines here at Tolt.  Beautiful yarn such as those from Jill Draper, gift items like slippers from Padraig Cottage, and knitting bags and notions from great suppliers such as Fringe Supply Co. and SO MUCH MORE!  I am so excited to share this amazing space with all of you and look forward to building a community of fiber artists.

  • Summer fun!

    Last week was a blast! Thursday was Stitch N' Pitch at Safeco Field.  We didn't have a booth this year but we had t-shirts, we had buttons and we had a whole lot of fun!  Karen and I enjoyed the game (and I enjoyed the garlic fries!), saw bunch of knitters and visited other LYS booths. 



    Friday was the start of Timber Music Festival here in Carnation.  I can't say enough wonderful things about this event!  The music was amazing!  I especially enjoyed Bryan John Appleby and Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers.  My family met up with friends there and we all had a great time, especially the kids.  The event was really well organized, family friendly (there was a free kids concert on Saturday morning AND a root beer garden), and clean (Klean Kanteen was there to provide reusable water bottles and reusable beer cups).  The weather was perfect and it was so awesome to see all the concert goers enjoying the the river, the park and walking around our small town!  I can not wait for next years Timber Music Festival!  (You can see more photos on Instagram, hashtag #timberfest.) 




  • What We've Been Up To

    We have been very busy here at Tolt Yarn and Wool.  Greg has been working hard giving 4509 Tolt Ave a little face lift.



    If you have driven by recently you will notice the new corbels and the lovely new paint color.  There has also been a lot of improvements on the inside.  The old wood flooring was ripped out due to some rotting and radiant floor heating has been installed and soon the concrete floor will be poured.  Greg has salvaged most of the wood flooring and will put it to good use building fixtures and shelving.


  • Shearing Day

     

    Once a year we gather our sheep together for shearing. We send the newly shorn fleece to a mill where it is processed and returned to us in the form of skeins. I'm always surprised how many skeins are made from our little flock.  Take a look at the process below!
