Local Yarn Store Day (Weekend)

September 11, 2020 - September 13, 2020
Event Category:

LYS Day this year is a little different because of the limitations of the pandemic. However, as in previous years, we want to give back to all of you for supporting us over the last decade and particularly in the last six months. From Friday through Sunday, when you spend $50 or more in the shop, we will be giving you one of these fun masks. In addition, read below to see all of the other great promotions happening this weekend.


Special Kit and Free Pattern from Manos del Uruguay

In celebration of LYS Day, Manos del Uruguay is offering a limited edition kit and free pattern – available exclusively through your local yarn shops.

Opalite Wrap

The Fino stripe wrap is a study in color illusion: the colors of Willa are hand-picked to step up and down in color value. The result? A gorgeous wrap that appears as if it’s rippling in the breeze, thanks to the light-to-dark color palette. Opalite is knit on the bias with changing colors, so it’s a project that will keep you engaged from beginning to end!

Shown in an exclusive Fino Mini-Skein Kit for LYS Day 2020: Kit #20 Willa!  Please note that Opalite requires one Fino Mini-Skein Kit and one full skein of Fino to complete. Our kits are for both the mini-skein kit seen below and one full skein of Fino in Rosewater (as seen in the finished wrap).
