Details: Our yarn club will highlight and celebrate beautiful stories from BIPOC children’s authors. Both Shobha and I remember how important it was to see ourselves represented in the books we read as children.
What is Included in the Club?: Each Club will include 2 50g skeins of fingering weight, a variegated yarn with a coordinating semi-solid.
75% Superwash Merino 25% Nylon
There will also be a bookmark that corresponds with the book.
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
May's book is The Arabic Quilt: An Immigrant Story by Aya Khalil and will be mailed out May 29.
Yarn has been washed in environmentally friendly wool wash and rinsed, minimal bleeding might occur. Wash in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Dyed in Teenager And Dog Friendly Home
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.
