A talented knitter can craft numerous useful items from humble yarn, from scarves to warm his neck to scrumptious woolen pizzas to serve his pet moth. Feed an insect's needs with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of knitting supplies from Spun FibreArts, located in Burlington.
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.
