Above the Clouds Extra Yarn (August 2019)
August's yarn offerings are two wildly different yet equally spectacular yarns. Our wool selection was lovingly dyed just for us by Less Traveled Yarns, a small-batch artisan studio in Arizona. You'll love the feel of this Bluefaced Leicester, silk and cashmere blend!
Our non-wool offering is a most gorgeous jewel tone gradient which shimmers brightly on the Milk Protein base. Spun from milk protein (casein), milk yarn combines properties of natural and synthetic yarns. It is glossy and luxurious like silk; antibacterial and antifungal like bamboo; and strong, durable, and wrinkle-free like acrylic. Adding our custom colorway just adds to the delight!
