Berroco yarn is manufactured in mills all over the world, but we do most of our buying twice a year at a huge trade show in Florence, Italy. That’s where our beautiful Berroco Cirrus comes from. There’s an interesting story about this fine Italian yarn, and the family that makes it, in tomorrow’s KnitBits.

Before I tell you anymore about our week on Cape Cod, let me introduce myself.
