Thanks for joining us for Episode 71 of JOMR! This month we’re proud to be sponsored by Unwind Yarn Company.

Unwind Yarn Company has always prided itself on fantastic customer service, a great product, and reasonable prices. We are proud to announce that we are continuing that tradition at our new storefront, unwindyarncompany.com! It is now easier than ever to shop your favorite colorways, yarn and fiber bases, and place custom orders for sweater quantities of yarn or fiber. Dying to see our products in person? Be sure to stop by booth #13 in the sales barn at the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair and “squish the pretties” to your heart’s content!

Dana: I want some woolen prep fiber so I can practice my long draw. I also want goat’s milk fudge (a given!), I want to look for buttons, maybe a sweater quantity of something special if I can find something I like.
Brittany: Not very “goal oriented” this SAFF, I just want to look and see what catches my eye.
