This next to skin soft Worsted weight yarn comes from Twin Oaks Fibre Farm in Guelph, Ontario and is some of my favorite non-superwash to work with!
Each skein has been hand-dyed and is so squishy and soft! It is suitable for all types of projects and is a BFL/Romney mix.
These skeins are meant to be paired with our “Be a Freaking Unicorn” Worsted Sweater Kits but if you are interested in simply purchasing a few skeins, please send either myself or Laura at Twin Oaks a message with your request. When you purchase a sweater kit, you are able to choose one hand-dyed skein to use for colourwork and 20% of all sweater kit sales will be donated to The AIDS Network here in Hamilton ON.
So not only are you supporting a small indie-dyer, but also a local farm and a local LGBTQ+ organization!
Worsted WEIGHT Non-Superwash
Be a Freaking Unicorn is a project started by a group of Ontario-based independent dyers, centred around the concept that everyone has a unique creative perspective to bring to the table.
Designed to support our local LGBTQ+ communities, a minimum of $5 CAD per skein sold (or 20% of other products) from my Be a Freaking Unicorn shop section will be donated to The AIDS Network in Hamilton ON.
We believe: That artists should be paid for their work, in spreading joy one colourful skein at a time, and in the importance of supporting our local LGBTQ+ organizations (especially a year into the COVID-19 pandemic!)
On May 1st, a gallery will be launched on this site to showcase the yarn, fibre, and projects bags with links to each participating maker’s website. From May 1st-24th 2021, we invite you to shop directly from participating makers!
During the month of June, we encourage you to make something with your new stash, and use the hashtags #BAFU, #ifytbaubafu and #beafreakingunicorn to share it.
