At this years Pitti Filati show in Florence, Italy. Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Terry Phillips along with his lovely wife, sales rep, Jennifer, arrived to splashes of color in all sorts of interesting mediums. Stuffed animals, traffic cones, and multicolored smoke were just a few ways they were displayed.
They met with long time friends and the folks who make that decadent Baby Alpaca and beautiful Galway.
There was emphasis on natural fibers spun into luxury yarns. The colors were earthy and regal.
It was a long, hot week and Plymouth Yarn is excited to develop new products to share with you in the coming months.
Debriefing about all of the beautiful yarns!

During my vacation last month, I ran across this really cool DIY blog post for a woven pillow. I just had to make it!
I dug through my stash but I couldn’t find any roving laying around (how is that possible? I am ashamed to call myself a yarn stasher :)). But, because necessity is the mother of invention, I realized I had everything I needed when I pulled out some complimentary colors of Galway Roving.
I followed the directions on the blog, but used 4 strands of Galway Roving held together in place of using the actual roving. It took 2 full balls of the Tan and a little more than 2 balls of the Grey.
I do like the results, and the finished pillow is so soft and fluffy!
