M.O.E post 1 – Fig Tree Yarns

Welcome to our new series of M.O.E (Meet Our Exhibitors) blog posts.  These posts are designed to showcase this year’s Yarningham marketplace exhibitors.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be posting about each of our exhibitors in alphabetical order so that you can get to know them before the show.

First up we have FIG TREE YARNS

Fig Tree Yarns is a studio and store on the beautiful British Channel Island of Jersey, stocking artisan and inspirational hand-dyed yarns imported mainly from the USA.

Fig Tree Yarns specialises in carrying exquisite yarns that are difficult to obtain in the UK such as Anzula, Shalimar, Swans Island and Dream in Colour. Fig Tree Yarns also seek out exclusive independent hand-dyers from North America for our customers who, we know, enjoy the finest yarns in life.
