Back to school means back to more learning opportunities here at Countrywool.
Eager to add to your knitting, spinning and finishing skills this month?
I have had an unprecedented number of calls to put a sweater together,
 something I do not have time to do right now. But, we've got a class for that!

And, as promised, we have a huge SALE.
These yarns will be on sale until they are gone, but get here early for the best selection.
They may be ordered online as well,
 (the discount will show up as a refund after I refigure your order based on what is left on the shelf)
but be aware that using a credit card/PayPal
will reduce the discount, so plan to send a check to get the best deal.
( Sorry, free shipping is not included for the sale yarns)



sale at countrywool
7 lines of yarn are now on sale and will be cleared out.

The deal:
40% off everything listed;
45% if you take all left in any color;
50% off if you take all skeins left in that entire line.
Bring your checkbook or cash for this sale.
(credit cards may be used, but will incur a 4% markup)


Might be worth a road trip?
