Eco Alpaca is here! This is Baby Alpaca, all natural, no dyes and it is so wonderful! You have to touch it! You have to feel it! You have to knit something that can be touched at all times, so I decided to knit some mittens and cabled headband. Well, they were on display for one day.......needless to say, someone else wanted to touch it and bought the set!!
Denise Needles are in! Whenever my sisters and I get together, which means having to fly, we always ask each other, "Did you bring Denise with you?" and we reply, " Of course!" We then proceed to shop all of the yarn stores in the area, bring back our treasures to whatever house we're visiting, and proceed to knit and talk for hours and hours and all we needed was Denise for whichever project we decide to do that day. Denise is a pack of 10 sized needles, sizes 5 to 15, and they can be straight or circular. They are so easy to knit with and put together and I cannot imagine my knitting life without them. They will definitely be in my suitcase when I go to the Fiber Festival in NC in 2 weeks! They are a bit pricey, but buying 10 needles comes out to far more than you would pay for Denise! They are also made in Virginia and I think are the best needle sets on the market!!!!!
Okay... here it is... our story... all wrapped in a ball... now unraveled one project at a time!
Why Knot? For over 16 years, Encore Artful Gifts has been providing local artists a venue for expression and customers the access to creative gifts. In 2004, a local consigner said, “Why not carry yarn.” We said, “why not??!!”
. . . and then came yarn! We knew we were crazy but in 2005 we began to unravel! January 1, 2005, Encore Artful Gifts gave birth to a 1,500 sq ft. yarn shop called Unraveled . Full of energy and life this funky yarn shop is re-creating creativity! Stocked with vibrant colors and yummy textures, we keep the shop unique by selling yarn and patterns from small companies! At Unraveled, it is our job to stay on top of the latest trends and share them with our customers. From felting cool bags to knitting with beads we do it all!
Now owned by Karen Gore, we are still re-creating creativity!Whether you visit us for a class, a party, or just to hang out, we hope you will enjoy the Unraveled experience. We welcome your feedback as we grow and look forward to seeing you!
Can't wait to meet you, Karen, Stacey and the Unraveled/Encore Gals
