ExpoLana Uruguay - malabrigo
You're probably familiar to many fiber festivals that are held all around the world, for vendors to display and sell their products. Despite Uruguay being one of the biggest exporters of wool in the world, together with Argentina, South Africa, England and Australia, we have never had our own fiber festival. Until this year.
This year, the first edition of ExpoLana Uruguay will be held in Montevideo, Uruguay, and we are so happy to be able to be their sponsor.
It will be held on June 10th and 11th, celebrating World Wide Knit in Public Day, and it will be all about showcasing what is being done with wool in our country. malabrigo will have its own booth showing our yarns and samples.
There will also be workshops to learn different techniques, like felt, weaving, design with circular needles, dyeing with natural dyes, spindle spinning, etc.
And then, because the knitting community is about the most generous community ever, there will be a day of knitting for others, like we have been doing for the last three years. But we'll talk more about that in another post.
This is all really exciting for the fiber community in Uruguay, and we can't wait for it to be June 10th already to be able to enjoy all the exciting things that are being done with wool in our country.
