The Cashmere People Yarns; Portland, Maine and Tajikistan

Casey Roberts is the exclusive distributor of this amazing line of yarns here in the United States!  Once you hold a skein in your hands you know why so many people love working with it.   You will not get over how soft and strong the fiber is.  However, what really makes this yarn special is the story about the women farming, spinning and hand dyeing every skein we knit, crochet and weave with!  They are artisans living in small villages in Tajikistan.   Their work not only supports their families, but keeps their villages thriving.

Grace Robinson Fine Yarns and Needlepoing; Freeport, Maine

Recommended to us by Rebecca Fretty.

This lovely independent boutique has been serving the Freeport, ME community for over 22 years!  Their staff is so lovely and helpful.  They have a huge selection of hand painted needlepoint canvases and fiber selection to entice any needlepointer to add just one more project to their collection.  The yarn selection for the knitter and crochet enthusiast are equally rewarded when you walk in, but the big draw for me was the vast library of knitting and crochet books and patterns!
