With Pointed Sticks Yarn has Launched!

I am excited to announce the launch of the Etsy shop for With Pointed Sticks Yarns!

I am a long-time knitter and spinner, and always on the lookout for new fiber-related hobbies. In the past few years, I have become obsessed with indie hand-dyed yarns, and which let to wanting to try my own hand-dyeing.

I ended up falling in love with the process, from choosing a color palette to watching how colors work together on a skein and experimenting with techniques.

The shop currently has two bases in stock:

Ballpoint Sock
Ballpoint pens are the go-to writing instrument, and this base is my go-to sock yarn! This squishy 2-ply is composed of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon, making it perfect for socks, shawls, and garments. Skeins are 400 yards/100 grams.

Rollerball Worsted
Rollerball pens write smoothly, with just a little bit of “grab.” There’s a novelty to them, while they are still highly functional and a great stand-by, just like this base. Because this base is 100% non-superwash merino, it has a certain cozy, rustic feel to it, while its 4-plies make it smooth and durable. It’s ideal for hats, scarves, mittens, sweaters – anything meant to be cozy and warm on super cold days. Skeins are 218 yards/100 grams.

New bases and colorways will be arriving soon!

In addition to what is in stock, I accept custom orders. Don’t hesitate to get in touch! I’d love to work with you!
