Great News for Our Far Flung Friends! Shop Online at HCW

Big Fat Exciting News!! Hill Country Weavers now has an online store! It's true. Right now, we're offering just one exclusive brand: Shelter by Brooklyn Tweed. You might recall awhile back we posted a note telling the story of Brooklyn Tweed's new line. BT aka Jared Flood is one of our very favorite knitters, teachers, and human beings. If you were lucky enough to take a class with him last year, you know what a swell guy he is.

Jared put a lot of thought, time and effort into developing his born, bred, sheared and spun in the USA line of fibers and the colors are gorgeous. He's also a magnificent photographer so just looking at his stuff can keep you happy. (Note to Jared: please make us a screensaver so we can look at Shelter all day long.) Shelter is only available in a handful of shops around the country. We are lucky enough to be the designated Southwest dealer.

For those of you who don't live close enough to drive in every time the urge hits to get more Shelter, you can now buy it online at our shop. And you can also pick up Jared's super beautiful patterns, many of which are inspired by architecture. And heck, even if you do live close enough to drive over to the shop regularly, you'll still want to check out the online shop.
