Financial Accessibility & Sticking Together

Hello, fiber friends. From the bottoms of our hearts, we hope you’re all doing well, but we also know that’s a really big ask right now. We’re safe at home, well stocked, and our state is under a stay-at-home order. We’re also incredibly lucky that our household’s primary income is stable, as we have so many friends and loved ones who’ve suffered sudden and severe economic hardship due to necessary social distancing and quarantine measures. The fiber community has been hit hard, with major festivals and other in-person events cancelled. For many fiber artists, their business is in fact their primary income. Large events can comprise a major part of an artist’s income for a year. If you, too, are lucky enough...

Why Dathanna?

We quite probably could have started with a simpler set of colorways upon launching our yarn line. I’ve certainly dyed simpler things! But this idea latched onto my brain quite early in the process, and I had to see it through. Our Dathanna colorway series is my attempt at translating my understanding of the Irish words for colors via the medium of dye, rather than the medium of English language. As may be apparent from the yarn listings themselves, there isn’t a direct, one-to-one correlation between, say, “green” and “uaine.” One of my favorite things about my stumbling attempts to learn Irish (and my mostly-forgotten efforts at other languages in school) is the process of trying to understand the world from a completely different...

Q&A - Our New Yarn Line!

WAIT, YOU SELL YARN? I THOUGHT YOU JUST SOLD FINISHED KNITS! We’ve only sold finished knit items until now. Both of us have known for a long time (since we were first brainstorming this business!) that we would likely want to grow both our crafts and our offerings, so here we are – we’re going to start offering hand-dyed yarn. WHEN? You will be able to buy yarn from us starting on Friday, September 20th at noon EST. There will be a new menu bar option on this website titled “Shop Yarn,” with a selection of pages for you to browse. You should also be able to purchase yarn through our Facebook shop and its associated Messenger account, although due to Facebook policies and...

Test of Time: Simple Shawl

I completed the knitting on what would become the primary photo sample for our Simple Shawl design in March of 2016, and it became one of the first listings on our storefront not too long after. Since one of the best features of hand-knit items, in my opinion, is that they’re designed to last, I thought I’d take some time today to review just how well that sample Simple Shawl has held up to regular use over the past two years. My very own Simple Shawl, two years old and still just what I wanted. Looking at it now, I can see more tiny details I’d fix or change in this particular piece – details I have updated in the design we...
