|My new favorite store in Bremen!|
|The main cathedral, or Dom, in the city center of Bremen|
It was a beautiful fall day, and as I set out away from the beaten path, I discovered part of the city I had never seen before. It was bright and vibrant, full of shops, restaurants and museums, and tucked in a little corner was Wolle + Mode. And there I finally found the treasures I had been seeking. The first was some Regia yarn from their world color series, in the colors of the German flag. Could there be a more perfect souvenir from Germany? Then sitting on the shelf above it was Camino Alpaca by Bremont. I fell in love with this yarn at first sight, but I loved it even more when the shop owner explained to me that Bremont was a combination of the names Bremen and (something I did not quite understand), and that the yarn was produced a mere hour or so from Bremen. I got even more excited when I check Ravelry and found that the only knitters listing Bremont in their stashes or projects purchased it in Germany, Austria, Norway or Finland.
