What to stash this week: Yarn party

I’m so excited to debut Circus Tonic Handmade’s line of yarn for Indie Untangled! Hannah, a mom of three and former molecular geneticist based in South Australia who dyes on Australian Merino, has created special-to-IU colorways on a selection of several bases. There is Jubilee Sock, a classic 75/25 Superwash Merino and nylon sock yarn.


In addition, I’m featuring her Soiree Fingering, a glowing blend of 70% Superwash Merino, 20% silk and 10% Cashmere, in eight colors.

A bundle of yarn skeins in multiple colors.

There’s also a selection of her Pageant DK Superwash Merino in 10 colors with classic women’s names, including a yellow named after my Grandma Florence (yellow was her favorite color).

Pink single-ply and fuzzy yarn.

We also have mohair/silk and Merino singly-ply bundles, called Fledgling Duos, perfectly portioned for projects that need a little halo.

A rainbow of rustic mini skeins of yarn.

And, last but certainly not least, there are a very limited number of mini skein bundles with non-Superwash Australian Corriedale. This yarn feels like hugging a sheep, another animal that calls Australia home.

Laverne of Bzy Peach created the My Choice colorway to support our right to choose what to do with our own bodies. Use it to knit the Autonomy cowl by Romi Hill. This yarn is comprised of soft 100% Pima Cotton hand dyed in Georgia — my friend Kathy said it’s the best cotton yarn she’s ever knit with! It’s also available in 50/50 cotton/wool. 20% of sales of this colorway will be donated to the National Network of Abortion Funds.

Carolyn and Michelle of Olive & Two Ewe Studios are continuing “yarn season” with new colorways, including Renewal (pictured here) and Out of the Mist. They’re also raising money for Hurricane Ian victims through the Red Cross with their DistractIAN colorway.

While she works on new holiday and winter colors, Andrea of WoolenWomenFibers is offering 15% off Autumn colorways through November 1, with free shipping on U.S. orders $35 and up.

Ashleigh Wempe’s Tucson bandana cowl, originally featured in the book Handmade: Slow Fashion Inspired by Arizona’s Five Cs, is now available for purchase as an individual pattern. This lightweight colorwork cowl, knit in two skeins of light fingering, is the perfect fall layering piece.
