Warm up with Hill Country Weavers' First Thursday sale

See also

Texas is being true to its reputation for fickle weather patterns this winter, bouncing between balmy highs and freezing lows seemingly every week. For knitters, this has not only offered the chance for extra knitting time during snow days, it is also an opportunity to wear all of their warmest knits.

Hill Country Weavers wants to help warm knitters up with February's First Thursday sale, taking 20% off of warmth-giving fibers. Those are fibers that come from these animals:

  • Sheep
  • Alpaca
  • Yak
  • Buffalo
  • Possum
  • Llama
  • Camel
  • Worms (asin in silk worms)

Yarns containing any percentage of fiber from these animals are eligible for the First Thursday discount. As usual, the sale does exclude already marked down items.

The store will be open until 9 p.m. Thursday evening. Due the currently frozen weather conditions, the store is extending the sale through Friday, February 7 in order to allow for knitters to stay safe and still save. For those who still can't make it to the South Congress store, online shoppers can save by using the code WARMUP for 20% off of yarn.

The weatherman may not be able to guarantee the forecast too far in advance, but it's likely that Austinites will need something to keep them warm at least a little longer this season before things warm up. Stock up on cozy yarns to knit while settling in to watch the Winter Olympics in the comfort of your always-warm home.
