Happy New Yarn

Many long hours in the dye studio concocting a series of visions and combining them with a series of happy accidents yielded a delightful palette of new colors. None of these are anywhere near Pantone's picks for 2016's "colors of the year" but we adore them, and we hope you will too. And next is an extra special treat that we've been dreaming about for ages, and we're beyond thrilled to finally be able to make it happen...

It's been a little busy...

The holidays are in full swing, which means that the busy Fall yarn festival season has come and gone. There are only five shopping days left until Christmas, if you count today and Christmas Eve, which is when all the real celebrating happens in my family.

Without further ado...

Silk Circle Scarf (say that three times fast!)

Another shiny new thing that debuted at TNNA: Oink Pigments Scarf. This is a 100% Habotai Silk Circle Scarf which we hand dye as if it were a skein of yarn to match each of our existing colorways. These are an awesome accessory by themselves, and we think they're EXTRA fabulous when paired with a matching or complementary yarn.
