Introducing Alpaca Luxe

Long Dog Yarn is adding a new yarn to our lineup! Meet Alpaca Luxe, a luscious blend of baby alpaca, cashmere, and silk. This fingering-weight yarn comes with a generous 436 yards per skein and is an absolute dream to work with, producing a light and airy fabric with lovely drape. It’s perfect for everything from a lightweight sweater or a gorgeous, lacy shawl. If you are looking to treat yourself to some scrumptious summer knitting, LDY has you covered. You can find Alpaca Luxe in the Long Dog Yarn shop in a number of bright, summery colorways.

Joining Alpaca Luxe in today’s update, you’ll also find the shop restocked with a bundle of bright, happy colors in many of my fingering-weight bases, including Sock, Bounce, and Single. LDY has your summer knitting needs covered, so kickstart the upcoming long weekend with a pile of summery yarns to add to your stash.

Hi from Long Dog Yarn!

Hello!

I’m brand new to Indie Untangled, so let me introduce myself. I’m Brandy, the one-women indie dyer behind Long Dog Yarn. I specialize in spectacularly speckled yarns with complimentary bright tonal colorways. Long Dog Yarn was started just about a year ago while I was finishing my PhD at the University of Toronto, but recently my husband and I, along with our “long dog,” a dachshund named Rufus, just relocated to Los Angeles after we both finished our degrees. Now I’ve set up in our big new kitchen to dye, dye, dye and continue growing the business.

If you’d love to learn more about LDY, you can find my online shop at longdogyarn.com. The shop has just recently been restocked with lots of colorful colorways in my favorite fingering-weight bases to celebrate summer knitting, including lots of my best-selling Sock sets. Socks make the perfect portable summer knitting project and my Sock sets, which include a full 100g skein of speckled Sock yarn + a 20g mini skein in your choice of complimentary color for working heels/toes/cuffs, are perfect for on-the-go knitting. They are totally addictive to dye and to knit with! You can also find me on Instagram – @longdogyarn. I love sharing colorful inspirations and shots of beautiful projects that used LDY.

There are lots of exciting things in store for LDY this year and I’d love for you to come along for the ride!
