The 2015 Micro-Brewed Yarn Series!

2015 Micro-Brewed Yarn Series
We like our yarn like we like our beer (or wine, or coffee, or tea, or gourmet soda)... extra delicious and smooth to the last stitch!

But all kidding aside, our collection of Micro-Brewed yarns for 2015 are truly that.

As you may have noticed, we love working with independent hand-dye companies to create gorgeous special edition colorways, but we realize that in the "Indie" dyer world, there is a huge leap between the Lorna's and Tosh's of the bunch (who we also love to pieces), and the "Micro" dyers who dye yarn on their kitchen stove or in their garage.

Recently, we were brainstorming new ways to support these micro-dyers and Laura (Jimmy) mentioned that making small batches of yarn is similar to small batch beer brewing, you have to cook it over fire and let it boil for it to turn out extra awesome! So naturally from this, the "Micro-Brew" series was born!

Each month of this year, we'll introduce you to the work of three new "Micro" Brewers if you will, with one of their lovely yarns dyed just for us! Below, you'll find all of the monthly Micro-Brewed yarns that we have in currently stock. These limited run yarns and colors will change as the year goes on, but one thing is for sure, each tasty Micro-brews is as yummy as it is gorgeous!

Also check out Chicken Boots' limited edition stitch marker pouches (which can also hold some of your other small notions) each month! Chicken Boots products are "micro-brewed" in Chico, CA by Saremy Duffy and her small team of sewists.
