What to stash this week: giving back by shopping small

A collage of yarn and bags.

This list will be updated throughout the weekend with any new sales.

As you cozy up with your devices and browse gifts and personal treats, know that your purchases will also benefit people who could use a helping hand this year.

When you buy from the Indie Untangled shop or an Indie Untangled vendor this weekend, I will donate 5% of your purchase to Camba, an organization that provides programs in economic development, education and youth development, family support, health, housing and legal services to people in my hometown of Brooklyn. Debbie of Murky Depths Dyeworks will be providing an additional matching gift of 5%

Here’s what you need to do:
• Forward me the email confirmation from any purchase you made from an Indie Untangled vendor between 12:01 a.m. your time Thursday, November 26 and midnight your time Tuesday, December 1 to lisa at indieuntangled dot com.

• You can see the list of qualifying vendors here, either on the right side of the screen if you’re on a computer or at the bottom if you’re on your phone. Purchases from the Indie Untangled shop during this time automatically qualify!

• Forward the email before midnight your time on Friday, December 4 so it can qualify for the donation.

I’ve also made my holiday deals a little sweeter: If you purchase any physical item from the new and improved Indie Untangled shop, you’ll receive this Indie Untangled Sweater Fob, custom made by Katrinkles, for free! Simply add it to your cart and the discount will automatically apply. In addition, orders of $150+ will ship free in the U.S. and with flat rate shipping internationally. There are also a few new discounts scattered around, including on Fiber Friends Selfie enamel pins and the remaining two skeins of Field and Pasture self-striping yarn from Gauge Dye Works. 

A bouquet of orange flowers and the words Indie Untangled Yarn Club, Lanivendole / Soraya García #whereweknit

For the first installment of the 2021 Indie Untangled Where We Knit Yarn Club, Giulia and Stefania of Lanivendole, who create rustic, hand-dyed yarns in Italy, will partner with Soraya García, a native of Spain currently living in Amsterdam. Their inspiration is a photograph Soraya took in late winter 2020, showcasing the blooming of a new reality in a year filled with complex emotions. ⁣

This quarterly club, which will begin shipping in February, brings together four dyer/designer dream teams. Aside from Giulia, Stefanie and Soraya, there will be collaborations from Black Elephant and JimiKnits, Humble Knit and Camille Descoteaux, and Murky Depths Dyeworks and Bristol Ivy. ⁣Each pair will collaborate on an exclusive colorway and an accompanying accessory design inspired by their favorite spots to whip out their WIPs. ⁣

Sign-ups will be open through the end of the year. Make sure to grab your spot, or snag the perfect gift for a special indie yarn-loving person in your life.
