One of our favorite dyers: Joe Cole of WTF yarns has a new business venture: The Yarn Liaison. In 2020, Joe will be bringing us some of the best hand dyed yarns in the business. There are many Indie dyers out there who are too far away to visit TKE with a Trunk Show, Though The Knitter’s Edge is the hosting shop, Joe, as the Yarn Liaison, will be the very knowledgeable brand representative here at TKE for the trunk shows.
