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. What is Included in the Club?: Each Club will include 2 50g skeins of a variegated yarn with a coordinating semi-solid. There will also be a bookmark that corresponds with the book.
Please note the base change due to Covid19, yarn for September will be dyed on a 85% Superwash Merino 15%Nylon 50g/200m/219y
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
I Image Description: 2 skeins of yarn lay to the right of a hardcover book titled The Closet Ghost by Uma Krishnaswami. All lay on an ebony backdrop with flower and leaf cutouts. On the cover of the book is a brown skin child with 2 ponytails with red beads on both sides of her head. Her left eye is open and she is peeking over her blue, orange/red, green blanket. Behind her is a purple closet door with two pairs of eyes, one looking grim and the other scared, looking out.
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.
