What to stash this week: stashing for a cause

I have a soft spot for Mount Rainier in Washington State as it’s the first national park I ever visited, almost exactly 10 years ago. Fittingly, Heather of Early Grey Fiber Company, based in the Pacific Northwest, chose this photo of a purple-y winter sunrise over Naches Peak, taken by parks volunteer JD Hascup. The Highest Peak will be dyed on Darjeeling Sock, a 75/25 blend of Superwash Merino and nylon that comes in generous 463-yard skeins. It’s available to preorder on Indie Untangled through August 23 and will ship at the end of September. As always, 10% of sales will be donated to the National Park Foundation.

Here’s another cause worth stashing for: Christina has channeled her feelings of frustration about current events into two a new collection called Meaningful Action. 25% of sales of these two colorways, Bleeding Heart and No More Thoughts and Prayers, will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center and Everytown for Gun Safety.
