Color for a cause

We are so excited to announce that we’ll be donating a portion of our sales to the Aruna Project for the next few months. You can learn more about this great non-profit at our website, but the bottom line is: they’re helping to free women in India from sexual slavery and then helping them gain new skills and confidence through fair employment and therapy so they don’t end up going back to being exploited.

Every skein purchased will result in a donation to this fantastic cause. It can be so easy to get overwhelmed by all the problems we see in the world, but we can make an impact even if it’s something small. We have gorgeous new colorways for fall and some super fun knitting accessories, too.

Explore over 100 indie yarn and fiber shops

With the changes in the marketplace, plenty of new indie shops have been opening on FiberCrafty. This means lots of gorgeous new listings and product options! Scroll through and just browse or use our filters to search for breed specific yarn or fiber, a yarn weight for that project you have been eyeing or if you just want something in purple.

Posted pictures correspond to the shops listed below!

Pen & Hook is one of our newer shops and has a really unique product line of hand dyed sari silk. It’s available in 12 colors and varying lengths. Just imagine all the unique ways this could be used from adding textured stripes, to a gorgeous statement cowl to wrapping gifts or creating jewelry. Lisa also has beautifully hand-dyed silk yarn listings.

The Spun Bunny shop has a variety of yarn in different fibers (yak, silk, Cashmere and more!) and weights (from lace to worsted), as well as different types of spinning fiber that range in preparations like braids, rolags, and silk brick. Marissa’s love of color really shows!

One of my favorite things about the APLCrafts Handmade shop is that many of the yarns can be used beautifully together. Alicia also offers great suggestions for coordinating yarns in each listing. She doesn’t always repeat her colorways so if you see something you like, don’t wait around.

Sharon mostly has yarn but also offers some fiber in her CabinWool shop as well. She uses a range of yarn bases including corriedale and has some really beautiful variegated options. Check out her beautiful “Kissin Cousins” sets – two coordinating skeins that can be purchased individually as well.

LizaDeeOriginals is another newer shop and each time I see one of her listings for yarn or fiber, it takes my breath away! Bobbie’s dye technique is unique and she also has some true, gradual color gradients.

Jacqui of Lowlander Yarn Studio has just started adding listings to her shop and she offers a luxurious yarn base that is perfect for shawls! It is a blend of BFL, silk and cashmere available in multiple tonal colors, inspired by nature.

This is just a sampling of the shops and products on FiberCrafty! Do you follow us on Instagram? We help you stay in the loop with our newest listings. If you want to hear about sales and coupon codes, let us know!

Tits Out Collective

Over 200 indie dyers, crochet and knitting designers and notions makers have rallied together in an impromptu movement in response to a charity colourway by dyer Countess Ablaze that was plagiarised. Rather than naming and shaming the culprit, the Countess released the dye recipe and invited dyers to recreate their own versions of If I Want Exposure, I’ll Get My Tits Out, which initially raised over £3000 for Women’s Aid in April 2018.

The original colourway was dyed in response to misogyny the Countess experienced and being asked to give a significant amount of stock and teaching time in exchange for exposure. Dyers worldwide are releasing their versions of this iconic colourway on Sunday 1st July 2018 with money donated to charities of the participants choice. Designers are designing new patterns and rebranding existing ones and makers of bags, jewellery and stitch-markers are also involved with Tits themed items.

Find participating dyers and designers in this gallery.
