We are always looking for ways to connect with our community and provide the products and services you want! We hope this page helps keep you informed of all the fun, new and exciting things happening at MFY!
Trunk shows are an opportunity to see and feel products you may not be familiar with. We often have the opportunity to display project samples made from the featured products as well!

Bonnie Isle Hat KAL
The Bonnie Isle Hat is the official hat pattern for this year's Shetland Wool Week! Designed by Whalsay knitter Linda Shearer, this fair isle beauty looks stunning in any color combination! We have kits inspired by the festival's original color choices as well as a special MFY kit. If you'd prefer to select your own colors, we also have a vast selection of Jamieson's of Shetland Spindrift to get that perfect combination!
Knit this hat along with us now through the end of Shetland Wool Week (September 24-October 2). You can find the FREE pattern here.
The shop is filled with wonderful yarns, tools, patterns, kits, notions and more, and we are constantly working on adding new items to our online presence as well!
Kremke Soul Wool Reborn Wool Recycled
We are in LOVE with Kremke Soul Wool's Reborn Wool Recycled! Made from post-consumer recycled wool/acrylic garments and combined with polyester recycled from PET bottles, this sustainable product is a soft blend available in a beautiful array of colors. We think it will quickly become one of your favorites too!
Kremke Soul Wool Reborn Jeans
Similar to the Reborn Wool Recycled, Reborn Jeans is made from post-consumer jeans and recycled PET bottles, and feels like a mix of burette silk and wool. The narrow range of colors reflects the original color of the recycled jeans - no additional chemical process is done to bleach or dye the product.
