Class Details:

It takes a village to make a design collection, combining the skills of knitters, designers, technical specialists, photographers, models and many more. Join Sarah Solomon, Harrisville’s Director of Knitwear Design, for a lecture all about taking yarn from fiber to fabric, past to present. Sarah will give a bit of history about the mill at Harrisville, then show a glimpse of its modern operations and how yarn is made, from the heirloom-quality Highland and Shetland lines they started fifty years ago to new, contemporary-looking yarns, Daylights and Nightshades, made with American-raised Cormo wool. We’ll learn about the running of a mill and the building of a color palette, and then take a look behind the scenes at the making of her latest pattern collection.
