Mosaic Moon Pop-up Shop @ Portland | Oregon | United States

We always enjoy seeing what new color combinations Mosaic Moon has come up with! And for this year’s Crawl, she’s creating a special custom color just for Northwest Wools! Our special Northwest Wools colorway will be available in her most popular yarn bases.
We’ll have them for sale in our Brick & Mortar Shop as well as in our Online Store. While we are not able to showcase the roomful of yarns and fibers she usually brings due to the pandemic, we are excited we can still support her through this special colorway! And if you want to see – and purchase – her full range of yarns, you can
jump on over to her website!

Please note, for safety reasons we are only able to allow 1 Yarn Crawler at a time into our Pop-up Shop room (our Classroom). These Vendors will not be able to join us in person this year, so we can keep everyone safe from this Virus.

The 2021 Rose City Yarn Crawl is a virtual crawl. This trunk show will be available on Northwest Wools online store and in their brick & mortar location. If you are choosing to visit their brick & mortar location during the crawl, we highly encourage you to check their shops page for hours and their website for visiting requirements.

Shaggy Bear Farms Yarns & Fibers will be in our Brick & Mortar Shop for the entire Crawl! Wendy will be bringing a whole room full of all of the goodies she usually has, and you’ll have 8 days to look them over and choose your favorites. For safety reasons, Wendy will not be in our Classroom to visit with you. But she sends her love and thanks to all of you who support her and her Critters!
We’ll also be featuring some of Wendy’s gorgeous yarns in our Online Store. Be sure to take a look and see which skeins you just can’t live without!

Steph of Three Fates Yarns has some special things in store for us this Yarn Crawl! She’ll be featuring her new hand-dyed Double Sock Blanks in our Brick & Mortar Shop, which can be used to create two identical socks. Or hold both strands together to approximate a DK-weight yarn for cowls, shawls or whatever you can think of. How fun is that?
Steph will also use her extraordinary color sense to create a brand-new colorway for her Aurai sock-weight yarn. This super-soft base is a blend of merino, yak and nylon. We’ll feature this special new yarn in our Online Store. We can’t wait to see what Steph comes up with! And if you want to see – and buy – more of the beautiful yarns and
fibers Steph creates, just hop on over to her Three Fates website!
