  • A collage of images in bright holiday colors.
  • A purple box in a green circle on a purple background.

We know as soon as October rolls around, one of the things we most look forward to are those Hallmark Channel cheesy feel-good holiday movies. The lonely baker meets the new vet in town and they fall in love just in time to kiss under the mistletoe, right?? This year we are taking the cheese factor and running with it! Our custom-designed box features artwork by our very talented graphic designer, Hannah, that is mantel worthy, with 25 doors to open for a special surprise. What is behind those doors you ask?

MVP 💜 NEW Tonal in the Shop Looks FAB with Charity Colors Fair Fight & Stand

Excited. Inspired. Hopeful.

Our newest bold and beautiful tonal colorway, Madam Vice President, MVP, inspired by our country’s first Madam Vice President, looks great with our charity colorways!

Fair Fight is a colorway for charity that we launched in 2020. While we may have differing political opinions, we believe voting should be fair, for everyone, NO MATTER WHAT! Living in a state that has disenfranchised voters with “surgical precision” we are doing our part to fight back. We donate $10 from every skein of Fair Fight sold to FairFight.com.

Stand is another colorway for charity that we launched last year. Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and in an effort to support the movement for social justice locally we created Stand. Proceeds from Stand are donated to Heal Charlotte, a local nonprofit organization aiming to support local families and to improve the neighborhoods in which they live. With this re-release of Stand, we are donating $10 from every skein sold to healcharlotte.org.

We donated $240 to Fair Fight, $440 to Heal Charlotte and over $1250 to various charities in total with your support during 2020. We make our donations quarterly and will continue to do so.

MVP and our charity colorways Fair Fight and Stand are in the shop now, DYED TO ORDER, on ALL of our bases. Which base will you choose?

NEW Colorway for Charity: Fair Fight

Red, white and blue hand-dyed yarn.

We LOVE creating new colorways to raise money for initiatives we believe in and so we are proud to present our latest colorway release, Fair Fight.

Fair Fight is not only the name of this new colorway, it is one of those initiatives we feel called to get behind. We believe that every voice should be heard and every vote should count.

Fair Fight works to “promote fair elections in Georgia and around the country, encourage voter participation in elections, and educate voters about elections and their voting rights.”

We will donate $10 for every skein to Fair Fight 2020. Purchase your skein(s) of Fair Fight and join us in support of free and fair elections.

Choose your base and preorder your skein of Fair Fight today!
