Last year at VKL NYC, after taking a dyeing class with Julie Asselin and Jean-Francois, I was chatting with them about the upcoming Indie Untangled show and had one of those lightbulb moments that led to a question: would they be up for creating a custom Nurtured colorway for IU? They enthusiastically agreed and I requested a peachy pink with a hint of purple. The result is Leaf Pile, which reads purple from afar, but up close is incredibly nuanced. I’m so excited to debut the yarn in the Indie Untangled shop this week, along with some other goodies.
Heather of Sew Happy Jane is having a shop update today at 5 p.m. Mountain time that features “perfect pairing” yarn bundles and warm and toasty worsted weight yarn.
Today is the last day to preorder the Dragonfly Fibers Petrified Forest colorway, inspired by Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. As always, 10% of sales will be donated to the National Park Foundation.
