You Heard It Here First

There's an amazing new yarn dyer and business joining the industry.

Brooklynne has set up Grrrl Shaped Yarns and has some of the most gorgeous yarn  I've seen or felt. On Wednesday at the local Stitch and Bitch knitting night I just couldn't resist leaving with some of this. The sheen and softness of this yarn has is just fabulous.

Theresa - 50/50 Merino Silk
This is a very special yarn that starts with a story. I met my friend Pam on Ravelry nearly 2 years ago and we became rather close, supporting each other in times of trouble. One of the things that has been troubling her for a while is, her sister Theresa was diagnosed with cancer a few years back and it has been a rough battle that keeps getting harder to fight for Theresa. I wanted to help but there wasn't much I could do, so i dyed this yarn in Theresa's favorite colour tealy blue with some shot of white hope in honour of Theresa. This yarn is kettle dyed.

50% of all proceed will be donated to UC Davies Cancer Research in Theresa's name, an organization that has been helping Theresa fight her war!

50% silk / 50% wool natural yarn, 100 gram skein 430 yards, 400 metres

Will make luxurious socks, beautifully soft scarves and hats. Lovely for "against the skin" wear. This yarn has is super soft with an amazing drape, but will also block beautifully.

Now, there are lots of other great yarns that Brooklynne stocks, and I've heard that there is a bamboo merino blend on the way this week too, plus she does custom slots also.

On top of all that, Brooklynne has offered to sell our Swifts via her site! Check this out
