For the past 3 years, every June we go to far western North Carolina to visit my parents and for our kids to attend the John C. Campbell Folk School's Little Folk School. For a week, they start off the day with songs and spend the rest of the day learning about traditional crafts such as basketweaving, woodworking, weaving, felt, beading, knitting, surface design and more. They thrive being around other makers and come home with a pile of handmade goods that are found throughout our home. Every Friday of Little Folk School, we go for a short hike on the John C Campbell grounds and hope to find the first ripe blackberries of the season - the inspiration for this colorway.
Folk School contains 75% Superfine Merino wool, 12.5% Baby Alpaca and 12.5% Viscose (Rose) and is sold in 4 oz increments.
