OUR GROWING FAMILY OF YARNS ---

After all these years of creating fibers, we still marvel at how a single strand of yarn comes to be. From its beginnings in nature, to carding, spinning and dying, we remain true to our values of making beautiful yarn that inspires our creative community. We are also deepening our commitment to bettering the earth; in small ways such as printing our patterns on recycled paper, to bigger ways with the launch of Eco-Cashmere; a new yarn that’s made from a blend of recycled and virgin fibers. We also want to nurture the playful side of knitting, which is what sparked the launch of Woolstok Jumbo; a bigger, braided version of Woolstok. We’ve had fun armknitting, crocheting and working with extra big needles. We hope you’ll enjoy this yarn as much as we do. At Blue Sky Fibers, we have a special fondness for each of our yarns; it’s difficult to choose just one favorite. We are excited to share these new patterns, colors and yarns with all of you. Thank you for continuing to journey with us.
