Our friends at Cestari Farms in Augusta County will be at the Manchester Knit and Crochet Show this weekend in Manchester, N.H. They will be located in Booth 413 and 415 selling lots of fantastic yarn that is Made in America with wool and cotton grown in the USA.
Check out their new item: 100% Cotton Yarn DK weight, hand dyed, for just $8.00 per 3.5 oz. – 250-yard skein.
My favorite sheep farmer Francis Chester will have some free yarn samples while they last.
Cestari is one of only a handful of operating sheep farms in the U.S. that offer wool made right here in America. He won the Made in Virginia – Western Virginia 2013 award from Virginia Living Magazine, a well deserved recognition of a family business that began in the 1960s. Located in Churchville and Augusta Spring in western Augusta County, Virginia, the Chester family continues to raise sheep and sell the wool while remaining in the Shenandoah Valley.
