Names: Karen Cuffaro and Rebecca DeSensi
Business: Amelia and Wiggles
Our yarn company, Amelia and Wiggles, was named after Rebecca’s daughter and Karen’s pit bull mix. We hand-dye yarn and our bases are named after things dear to Amelia and Wiggles. Pink Bear, a worsted 100% superwash wool, is named after Amelia’s favorite stuffed bear! She loves snuggling with him and loves him just as much as Mommy and Daddy. Orange Ball, a 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon sock yarn, is named after Wiggles’ favorite toy. She loves her orange ball! Made of orange rubber with a blue stripe, she carries it everywhere and chews on it as if it were bubble gum.
This past year, we introduced Snacks, an 80% Merino wool, 10% Cashmere, and 10% Nylon fingering sock yarn. It joined Little Pink Bear, just like Pink Bear but a DK weight, and Wet Kisses, a 100% DK weight Wyoming Merino wool. Can you guess who’s favorites these other yarns are?
Also this past year, we teamed up with Robyn Chachula of Crochet By Faye for another beautiful kit! Robyn designed the Schenley Park Shawl to use two skeins of Little Pink Bear for a stunning crochet motif shawl that can be worn a multitude of ways! Please stop by our booth to see these new items, as well as the Posy Patch flower, 3 Little Hat Family, and Butler Street Cowl kits.
