Persnickety patrons can browse the full spectrum of locally sourced and certified organic fair-trade yarns and fleeces at Spun's friendly fibre emporium. A skein of bulky 100% kettle-dyed merino by Malabrigo could inspire a yarn neophyte to attempt a cozy cowl from one of Spun's many pattern books, while an old hand at the spinning wheel might stop by to pick up a package of environmentally-friendly, fair-trade Indian plant dyes to paint a batch of bland wool turkey red, forest green, or Muppet orange. Spun FibreArts will stay open on Mondays from noon to 5 p.m. through the month of December to handle the holiday rush. Spun also peddles their own feminine-cut t-shirts, allowing fibre loyalists to wear their hearts on their sleeves even as they crochet it a cardio cozy.
