Layla is a boxy, oversized cardigan layering piece featuring contrasting color skinny stripes and knit up with worsted-weight yarn. It has a bit of a 70’s vibe, which is what inspired the name (you know, that great song by Eric Clapton/Derek and the Dominos).
Knit all in one-piece from the bottom-up, Layla will be your go-to layering piece this fall and winter!

Berroco and Jagger are multi generational New England companies that each have over 100 years of experience in the yarn world.
Trendsetter was started by Barry Klein and his mother over 30 years ago. They not only source some of the most beautiful and unique yarns largely from Italy, they also bring us Cardiff Cashmere, spun in a small, family mill that only spins cashmere.
Prism, Mountain Colors, and Mrs Crosby are more examples of small, independent hand dyers we’re delighted to carry in the shop.
Addi needles and Brittany needles are more multi-generation stories that, in our opinion, bring the quality and value that is unsurpassed in the industry.
In the shop we have over a ton of yarn as well as a million stories. We're delighted to continue this tradition for fiber fans everywhere.
Thank you for your support.
