Meridian Mill House and Shaniko Wool’s Jeane Carver will be at h+h, next week in Chicago!

Be sure to stop by and say hello in person at Booth 432

We are so excited to be exhibiting at h+h Americas, which takes place next week near Chicago at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

This will be our first in-person show in several months and we are ready to meet some of our current partners for the first time and make connections with potential new partners!

We had big ideas when we started Meridian Mill House in 2020, but that year handed us all different plans. Our extra time has been spent curating more yarns and fine tuning our processes.

The booth will display all of our current yarns and roving. You will also see a splendid selection of our yarns that have been dyed by our wonderful partners. We love our yarn but our partnerships are what make our yarns magical!

Jeanne Carver of Shaniko Wool Company will be joining us in our booth on Thursday, June 23. We will have Shaniko wool in roving form alongside U.S. Merino wool so that you can feel the difference! She will be able to answer all your RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) questions. She can also discuss their research in how they are offsetting the carbon emissions that factories, like ours, emit.

The show opens at 5 pm on Wednesday, June 22nd. Stephen and I will both be there. I, for one, will be ready to gush over your yarns and projects. Stephen will be ready to discuss all things technical including the construction of yarns. We will be sharing our experience at the show on Instagram for those that can’t make it. If you haven’t followed us yet, check us out at @MeridianMillHouse.

We will see you soon!
