Raging Wool 4th Anniversary Yarn Tasting Party!

November 7th, 2015

Cascade Yarn Tasting Tables

It's hard to believe we’re celebrating 4 years of being Raging Wool. We wouldn’t be here without our amazing customers, so we decided to throw a little Yarn Tasting to celebrate the occasion.

Please join us on Saturday, Nov. 7 from 12 noon to 6 p.m. for our combined Anniversary Party and Cascade Yarn Tasting.

We’ll have tons of great new Cascade yarns to sample along with prizes, a Flash Sale, snacks, and drinks. And it wouldn’t be a Raging Wool party without a few more surprises thrown in. We hope to see you!

Learn to Knit the Perfectly Fitting Dog Sweater!

New Class Begins November 5th

Learn to Knit Perfectly Fitting Dog Sweaters

Have you found dog sweaters just do not fit your furbaby? Maybe he wets it a little or trips over the chest? Maybe your furbaby is a little longer or shorter than the average sweater size.

This new class is on Thursday, Nov. 5 from 4-6 p.m. and you'll knit a sweater from your dog's measurements in any yarn of your choosing.

We have lots of patterns to choose from, and you'll need to come prepared with these measurements from your dog.  

Interested?  Check out the Knit to Fit Dog Sweater Class Description for more information!

"By choosing to create a simple blue and yellow scarf, you are taking part in a very public proclamation of love over hate and a very personal moment with the runner who accepts your gift."
