This special offer is available only as a pre-order for DFW Fiber Fest, Interweave Yarn Fest and Maryland Sheep and Wool.
If you have never participated in our "Trade-in Trade Up" promotion, here it is in a nutshell... We figure you have yarn in your stash that was either gifted to you by a non-knitter friend, purchased before you realized what types of yarn you really love, or maybe was a regretful late night online yarn shopping spree... however it came into your stash, you know you will never knit with it.
We want that yarn!
What are we going to do with it? Nothing.. ok, that's not completely true, what we are going to do is just pass it along to someone who will put it to good use. Project Linus makes blankets for children in the hospital, so they will have something to comfort them. We think they are pretty awesome people for doing this, and we have been supporting them for almost 12 years, and from good folks like you, together we have donated almost 20,000 skeins, partial skeins and finished blanket squares to Project Linus groups across the country . Some of the stuff that shows up, isn't suitable for that, so we find other people who will put it to good use, Warm Up America, Knitting behind Bars, or local groups who knit for the homeless. It will find its purpose. Don't worry about what kind of yarn you are bringing, acrylics, wools, bright orange crochet cotton. We sort it, and there are plenty of needs.
What do you get in return? well.. apart from the warm fuzzy feeling knowing you now have space in your stash for some serious luxury yarn, (and the other benefits of doing good things), we give you a very hefty discount on some of our best stuff ever. Over the years we have typically offered a discounted kit or a mystery bag. This year, we are going to do something different. Instead offering you a nice discount on our newest yarn "Prairie" if you pre-order before the show. :) you can either choose your color now, or pick it at the show. (it helps us pre-plan a bit if you choose earlier)
Now, what is "Prairie" you ask? Prairie is our newest yarn, and one we are very excited to introduce.. In poetic terms, Prairie is lush fields, the sheen of morning dew, warm comfortable breezes, and soft wispy clouds. It is rugged and beautiful.
In technical terms, its a 2 ply, woolen spun blend of 50% Bison down 50% wild unbleached Silk coming in at 200+yards, and 65g (approx) per skein.
In order to take advantage of this screaming deal, it must be pre-ordered. This offer will not be available at the event. :)
Please bring your donation yarn to the The Buffalo Wool Co. during show hours.
Limit of three per customer at this special price. Yes, you will be able to buy additional at the festival.
Please note: These will not be shipped (unless there are circumstances that prevent you attending) This order will not go into our shipping queue, your order will be a separate list we will have at each show.
