Wool yarn offered at CMC gathering
Sheep are a big business in Routt County and northwestern Colorado, so local knitters and textile artists find it ironic that it is difficult, if not impossible, to purchase wool yarn in Steamboat Springs. Now, Routt County Woolens and El-Shaddai, a store in Oak Creek, are trying to fix that.
Local knitters will be able to purchase yarn that originated with northwestern Colorado sheep from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday in the third-floor conference room of Bogue Hall on the Colorado Mountain College Alpine Campus.
Routt County Woolens will be offering skeins of undyed wool, both light and dark in color. El-Shaddai will offer several dyed colorations of its brown wool. Call 871-6363.
