Go Green with Remix!

What's happening at Chicks With Sticks logo

Get started on a spring project with Remix or Remix Light!

Skein of Remix and Remix Light

 Berroco's Remix and Remix Light are great all-season yarns that are also a way to "green" your knitting! This 100% recycled yarn is manufactured using a low-impact process that was patented in France.  Garments and high-quality commerially knit fabric left over from the ready-to-wear industry are collected from across Europe and sorted by fiber and color.  Since the fabric is already dyed, there is no need to dye it again, which saves water and limits pollution. Instead, colors are created by blending garnetted fibers. Garnetted fiber is the result of shredding old textiles to make new, fleece-like fiber that is ready to be spun into new yarn.

Remix and Remix Light use a soft, comfortable blend of nylon, cotton, acrylic, silk, and linen that results in a beautiful tweedy and rustic look.

Try one of these projects, perfect to add to your spring and summer wardrobe:

Don't let the cones get you down - we are open during the seemingly endless road construction. It might look bad, but we're still accessible. Please come see us!

Upcoming Classes/Events:

Thursday Night Drop-In is a chance to get some help on a troublesome project or just hang out and knit or crochet with a fun group!  There is no charge to drop in.  Sessions are held on most Thursdays with the next sessions planned for April 25, May 9, May 16, and May 30 from 6-8pm.  There are no sessions on May 2 and May 23.
