YarnYAY! July Subscription Club
During a period in history when time has no meaning, it’s hard to believe that it’s actually July already. The upside: that means the YarnYAY! July Subscription Club Pack is now available!
This month we’re exploring sustainable fibers, learning a new skill and getting a cool tool. Here’s the scoop!
- HIKOO POPCYCLE | SKACEL
This month, we’re working with a yarn that’s as innovative as it is silky and drapey! Popcycle is made from 50% bamboo and 50% polyester from recycled plastic bottles. Each subtle tweed hank (of which you’ll get a pop-color from the palette at random) recycles TWO plastic bottles! Cool, eh?
Skacel Knitting, perhaps known best for being responsible for bringing Addi Needles to us, is a women-founded-and-run business in Kent, Washington.
- MARKET SHARE BAG | VICKIE HOWELL
This month we’re getting netty with it. We’re combining the strength of the Popcycle yarn with open-weave knit or crochet stitches (you choose!) to create net bags perfect for carrying produce and more from the market. The knit version combines a series of yarn-overs and knit-two-togethers to form an eyelet fabric.
- MARKETING BAG | VICKIE HOWELL
The crochet version links chains together to form an ever-expanding mesh.
- SUCCULENT MINI NEEDLE FELTING KIT | FELTED SKY
We’re so excited to, for the first time, offer a needle felting project and lesson which will result in the cutest little felt succulent you ever did see!
Felted Sky is a family-run business owned by Elizabeth Whitton and based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. To see more of their AMAZING needle felting kits or buy a pot for your wee plant, go HERE.
- WRIST RULER | CROSSOVER INDUSTRIES
We love an accessory with a purpose, and the Wrist Ruler fits the bill! Made with silicon, it’s easy to clean and wear. Need a measuring tape? Look to your wrist!
Crossover Industries was founded by Avik & Rich, two buddies who met in architecture school. They run this company, along with ILOVEHANDLES and Walrus toys, out of their space in Portland, OR.
