On Tuesday, July 15th, Sarah Eyre, co-owner of Cephalopod Yarns, announced the immediate closing of her beloved hand-dyed yarn business. For fiber lovers everywhere this news—and the unfortunate reasoning behind it—sent a ripple of mourning throughout the community. We mourn the only way a fiber lover knows how—we find the last existing skeins and stash up immediately.
Cephalopod Yarns’ final trunk show is taking place right now at KNIT Long Island in Roslyn, NY, so obviously a pilgrimage was born!
A bounty of delicious fiber came home with us, but don’t worry—we left plenty for the rest of you:
Sarah herself will be at KNIT Long Island on Monday, July 21st, for a fitting denouement to a brand that will be sorely missed. For location and store hours, visit KNIT Long Island’s website.
Huge thanks to Audrey Bernhard and Cheryl Lavenhar, co-owners of KNIT Long Island, for welcoming us to their store and letting us roam free. It was our first trip, but it will definitely not be our last!
(Pro Tip: Audrey hinted that Sarah may be bringing some additional remaining stock on Monday. This is not to be missed.)
