Lorraine Orton of Urban Wool 59 sells knit accessories and hand dyed yarns.
After a career of teaching Clothing and Textiles Lorraine got back into knitting and then made the leap into dyeing yarns. She says “Although I strive for sophisticated neutrals, my yarns alwasy turn out bold and sassy. All those years teaching junior high have left a mark!”
Lorraine often uses buttons hand made by potter Nancy Blokland in her work, and will be selling some of Nancy’s buttons in her booth. We love to see local talent working together!
