Kim Dyes Yarn, out of Herndon, is a VIRGINIA dyer and ANOTHER YARN LINE WE WILL BE STOCKING!! We’ve talked to Owner Kim Russo about her 20 yarn bases, all named for baked goods, and this is where we say – it JUST MAKES US HUNGRY – hungry for yarn and hungry for those lovely baked goods!

She will hold a 2nd one from 10 am to 12 pm Friday, Feb. 16, and then she will remain on site all day Saturday, Feb. 17, to talk yarn with those who can’t make the tastings! THESE ARE FREE YARN TASTINGS! Please call us and reserve your seat. While the event is free, there are ONLY 35 RESERVATIONS FOR EACH TASTING! These are available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

And if you just don’t know what the heck a Yarn Tasting is… Have you ever wanted to try out a yarn before buying it? How will that yarn that looks like candy on the shelf actually feel in your hands? Is it really as soft as it feels? Do the colors actually look that pretty when it’s knit or crocheted? Come play with the YARN! Don’t take our word that it’s awesome! Truffle packs of the yarns are included with admission! Get tons of inspiration for your ongoing knitting and/or crocheting adventures!
