Name: Megan-Anne and Jac
Business: Lattes & Llamas Yarn
Us in a nutshell:
Lattes & Llamas Yarn is hand-dyed in our studio by Megan-Anne and Jac with an occasional assist from their little sister, Alena. Our family business makes an ever-growing range of yarns, patterns, kits, and fun swag items like coffee mugs and projects bags. We have an unabashed love of colorwork, socks, and Bluefaced Leicester wool, but our first and foremost love is the Geek-A-Long.
Founded on a caffeine high and the need to knit a massively nerdy blanket, Lattes & Llamas created the Geek-A-Long, and annual mystery blanket knit and crochet along, which raises awareness and funds for Child’s Play Charity. In its fourth year, the GAL has become a world wide knitting sensation and with the addition of our Geek-A-Long Yarn, we’re able to further our efforts by donating one dollar to CP Chairty for each skein of yarn sold.
About Masquerade Yarn:
You hold your breath. Is the masked prince really coming your way? Does he know who you are? Draped in a silk and sumptuous wool gown and hidden behind your ornate mask, he must have mistaken you for some kind of princess. But wait, then you remember. You ARE some kind of princess — you must be to have so much silk.
Of course, you can’t just walk around in a ball gown and masquerade mask all day. For all the moments in between, you can feed your royal side with Masquerade yarn. Luxuriously blended from extra soft Bluefaced Leicester and 20% silk, this yarn knits up into gorgeous drapey shawls and extravagant socks. Our colors were designed with multi color projects in mind, and specially created to compliment one another for all of your knitting needs.
