Imperial Yarns Columbia

We are so excited to welcome Imperial Yarn back into the shop! We have a few stunning samples for you to try on and oggle. The Arrowhead Cardigan above is a serious project, and the results are certainly impressive. Colorwork, steeks...all the fancy techniques in this one. The Essential Sweater Dress below is a much simpler knit, but the look is gorgeous, too. This one can be knit as a dress or tunic with either a cowl neck or a hood.
The Raindrop Bag is very cool, with its elaborate cables and ample size. The bag is lined with fabric, so it's nice and stable. All of these beauties are designed and knit with Columbia, a soft and squishy 100% wool yarn, grown in Eastern Oregon.
We have a small range of colors for now, but I'm hoping that we will see more Imperial Yarn soon. If you love local yarns, stop in and take a look!

  1. I love Imperial Yarn-- so glad you have it! I'll have to stop by the next time I'm lucky enough to be in Portland (July!). :)
