Five new neighborhoods have joined the Neighborhood Fiber Co. collection of amazing hand-dyed colors!
Druid Hill, or “Dru Hill” as Baltimoreans call it, is an urban park in northwest Baltimore built on the site of a former country estate. It’s home to the Maryland Zoo, Druid Hill Lake, botanical gardens, monuments, a farmer’s market, music festivals, and cyclocross races, among other things!
Federal Hill overlooks Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and has some fascinating history underfoot! A vibrant neighborhood with parks, a historic market, homes, shops, bars and restaurants, it also saw some of the first fighting of the Civil War. Underground tunnels from a Colonial-era paint pigment mine still occasionally collapse under the summit of the hill!
Patterson Park and its adjoining neighborhood are located in southeast Baltimore. Two-story 19th-century “marble houses” nestle next to lofty Victorians around the edges of the park, which features a boating lake, sports fields, playgrounds, and the grand Patterson Park Pagoda. It was also an important battleground in the War of 1812!
Penn-North is a working-class community originally settled in the 1870’s by English immigrants that became home to Baltimore’s African-American upper class during the 1920’s. More lately familiar to viewers of the TV drama “The Wire”, it’s now home to knitting designer Ann Weaver, whose love of yellow inspired this bright colorway!
Woodberry is a historic neighborhood of modest early 20th-century rowhouses that’s also home to TV Hill, the highest point of land in Baltimore. Broadcasting studios and transmission towers for several television and radio stations are located here, as well as the historic Woodberry textile mill.
We’ve got all of these gorgeous new colors in Rustic Fingering, Studio Sock, and Studio Worsted – come on in to see them in person and plan a new and colorful project!
