YAK is Back!!!
Our original sport weight Yaksi is back!!
It’s taken a few years but persistence and patience have paid off and here we are. I am so very very happy that this yummy yarn that we love is back. Especially at a this point in time when we have had to say goodbye of some of our other yarn loves. I so love this yarn. I love how soft it is and how it knits up and the fabric it makes but one of my absolute favorite things about it is how it takes the dye. Since it starts out a creamy oatmeal color from the YAK fiber and a little from the Tussah silk. As you can see from the photo it deepens the color and adds a bit of a heather aspect ~ so very rich!!
We are offering it at a little bit of a discount for the first few weeks. So don’t wait to give this lovely yarn a try!! I am in the middle of adding colors to the offerings so if you have a color that is not there that you want to see let me know. We are going to offer it mostly in Shaded Solids. I would not recommend Speckles for this one!
Hey do you know what today is besides Saturday?! It is our May Full Moon and it is a Blue Moon and…not a traditional one. Usually we think of a Blue Moon as the second full moon in a month and this one is not that. However there can be a seasonal Blue Moon which is 4 full moons in a season which is 3 months period which is what this. It’s quite fascinating and if you are interested there’s more here. May Blue Moon.
Full Flower Blue Moon!! Our May colorway in homage to our Full Moons. A very floral full moon colorway. (Get it?)
Okay me dear friends I am off to the barn for a weekend of dyeing. We have been down a dyer for almost two weeks now which as most of you know has put us behind yet again. I am bound and determined to get out of this so it’s a weekend in the barn as a solo dyer. It’s actually how I started all of this so… .
Did you all see the stash enhancing dye day class we have coming up. We all have skeins in our stash that maybe caught our eye at one time or another but now maybe they do not speak to us as much. So this is a great chance to make this skeins somethings that makes our hearts sing and our want to knit it. It is sure to be a great time. Dyeing is ALL kinds of fun. You will also learn dye basics and be the dyer that revitalized your stash. How sustainable of you!!
Oh and did you know that the 23rd of May is Drinking with Chickens Day??
yeah… I kid you not!!
Have a great weekend!
