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!

It’s just about summer time here in Bristol. It’s hot and humid during the day but the evenings are still slightly cool. If you have a wee one, it’s still nice to cover their sweet, little heads on those cool nights by the fire pit or during a walk on the famous boardwalks of the Jersey shore. Plymouth Yarn has them covered! Pattern F597, made using Sesia Bimbo, a soft cotton rolled brim hat is just perfect for those nights. It’s available in 6 beautiful, baby friendly shades. We want to celebrate this yarn and the season by sharing the pattern and giving 5 lucky winners the yarn they need to make it! The hat is available in sizes preemie to 6 months. To be eligible to win, comment on our blog, or share the post on facebook, retweet and tag us on twitter, or you can even pin this post on pinterest. Winners will be chosen at random on or about May 26th 2015.

My 9 year old son was given the task of picking out my Mother’s Day gift all by himself with his very own money this year, for the first time. I have to say, he did very well. I received an array of nail polishes in every shade of blue (my favorite color) imaginable and a beautiful orchid. He’s growing into a sweet young man, that’s for sure. I adore and treasure all of the homemade picture frames, pipe cleaner flowers and finger painted works of art from the past years but I think the fact that he really put thought into my gift that made it so very special to me. I honestly thought I’d end up with a Lego set!
For three lucky ladies out there, we have the gift you really wanted! All you have to do is win it! This beautiful Bio Sesia 5 CROCHET cardigan kit, pattern 2804, comes in so many sizes it will fit and flatter just about every mom. The luxurious, 100% organic cotton Bio Sesia 5 is super soft with a beautiful drape. It will be your spring/summer/fall go-to coverup for that night around the fire pit with mommy drinks after the kiddos are asleep!
Would you like a chance to win this kit? Just comment on our blog with the best or “it’s the thought that counts” gift you’ve ever received for Mother’s Day. Not a mom? You can play too! Tell us the best or worst gift you ever gave your mom/teacher/Grandmom/Aunt.
Colors will vary. Winner chosen at random on or about May 15th 2015.
