On November 10, 2011, Plimoth Plantation will introduce its new line of 100% wool yarn. “New Plimoth Worsted” will be custom spun in the village of Harrisville, New Hampshire by Harrisville Designs. The new line will be introduced at the Plantation’s Winter-into-Spring Farmers’ Market, and will feature a lecture at 3:00 P.M. by John Colony, owner of Harrisville Designs. The public is invited.
Press release about the event is here.
The yarn’s unique color palette was created by the Historic English Clothing and Textiles staff at Plimouth Plantation, matching colors produced by using natural dyestuffs of the 17th century.
Plimoth Plantation’s “New Plimoth Worsted” is available exclusively in Plimoth Plantation retail shops and on Plimoth.org.
