Supplies for the
Icelandic
Cape Ann Knitting Retreat sponsored by
COUNTRYWOOL
April 4 & 5, 2020
Rockport, MA


Please note: you may bring your own yarns and tools to this retreat.
Below are the yarns in stock at Countrywool that will work.
All knitting tools will be available. At least one needle in every size will be brought.
Pre-order any particular needles before March 3 to be sure they will be there for you!

There will be at least 4 carefully selected color kits for the heavy worsted (aran) weight projects
at the retreat when you get there.
If you have a particular color in mind, send an e-mail and I'll be sure to pack it.
Alas, no bulky weight yarn kits will be available.

Credit cards, checks and cash are all cheerfully accepted as payment!
