Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

During the week of July 4th, Plymouth Yarn’s Marketing Manager, Christine and Design Director, Cia traveled to Florence, Italy for the Pitti Filati trade show. This event is “the main international event for the knitting yarn industry, a research lab and an observatory on global lifestyle trends.” They met with some of our current suppliers, visited some new ones and toured halls full of gorgeous designs.  Our team is working hard to bring these new products to yarn shop shelves in the upcoming seasons.

With over 100 yarn brand representatives in attendance, it proves to be one of the most diverse and exciting events we attend.
The show’s focus this year is in ethical quality.  Fiber prices are higher than we have ever seen.  This directly influences all of our choices. Plymouth Yarn Company strives to keep the quality you deserve and the affordability you crave. These decisions are difficult ones and we have discovered some fabulous fibers!

Keep any eye out for new colors in some of your favorite yarns.  We are also considering two new beautiful yarns from Peru and just wait until you can feast your eyes (and needles) on Mushishi Black. We would like to announce that coming soon…Plymouth Yarn will be the exclusive distributor for Grignasco Knits in the United States!
