This is a wee list of the Fairs, Shows and Festivals that Caithness Yarns will be attending in person. If you are in the areas come say hello, get a squish and proper feel of our yarns, the net is fine for looking but there is no substitute for feeling the quality.
There will be more additions to the schedule as time goes on so keep an eye out for ones near you. If there’s an event you think we should come to just email me and let’s see!
Mostly I want to say how much I am enjoying coming out to these events, meeting such splendid folks and talking about my lovely sheepies.
