Details: Our yarn club will highlight and celebrate beautiful stories from BIPOC children’s authors. Both of us remember how important it was to see ourselves represented in the books we read as children.
Goal: We want to highlight the diverse voices that exist, and hope that people can learn and share them with every generation. Our hope is to open a dialogue and pathway to understanding and empathy.
In keeping in line with our goals we have reserved two sets for BIPOC makers. We will be offering this each month.
Dates: To begin in January 2020 and end December 2020
Listings will be up in our respective websites August 7 2020 at 10am central/11am eastern.
Image Description: 4 skeins of yarn lay next to the book titled The Amazingly Awesome Amani. The book has a luscious teal green and a cheery Black child stands arms akimbo dressed in his blue and yellow Superhero suit with an A in a pentagon on his chest. He also has on a flowing red cape and boots.
To the left of the book the 4 skeins of yarn are from left March and April’s Yarn Journeys Book Club. The colors from left, PAINTING REALITY-A variegated purple, and green with speckles of lime, brown, pink, orange and red. KAHLO’S GARDEN-A scrumptious deep green. POETIC-A soft blue with speckles of pink, green, blue, orange and deep pink. WATER WHEEL-A lovely teal blue/green with speckles of deep green, blue and yellow.
All of our skeins are dyed with Professional Acid Dyes and citric acid. I thoroughly rinse all skeins. Due to the nature of hand dyed yarn, some light bleeding may occur during your first soak / wash.
One of the beautiful things about hand dyeing is that no two skeins will look exactly alike, and while they are very similar, there will be some variation. I recommend getting enough skeins for your project at the time of purchase. I also recommend alternating skeins every couple of rows to avoid unwanted pooling.
Care: While this is a superwash yarn, I highly recommend hand washing in cool/cold water and drying flat.
Yarn is dyed in a pet friendly and smoke-free environment. All yarn is stored and processed separately from any animals.
