BigFoot Super Silky Sheep Set Pre-Order

NOTE: This yarn will be dyed to order and will ship in November, before Knit Stars 3.0 begins. Please keep in mind that these are hand-dyed yarns and colors may vary from the photos. This is part of the beauty of hand-dyed yarns.

Sheila of BigFootFibers has created an exclusive pairing of colorways for Knit Stars 3.0, dyed on her SuperSilkySheep Sock Base.

Here is why Sheila is so passionate about this project...
"Knit Stars has played a large part in my life as a knitter. It has grown my skills and confidence, but it was also the push I needed to jump out there and start hand dyeing yarn. Julie & Jean Francois were so real and down to earth that first year, and they inspired me to make the leap! I started my dye shop just a few months later in February 2017.

These two colorways are inspired by the Knit Stars who teach the classes but mostly the knitters who are adventurous enough to try new things and explore skills they don’t have yet."

Your kit includes 1 skein each of SuperSilkySheep Sock in two exclusive colors. “Polaris” is the constant and guiding North Star, such a deep purple as to be verging on black, with lighter purple and blue tones resembling the backdrop of the Milky Way. “Vega” is the bright blue star that never sets over the north, reminding us to shine our light brightly all the time. She is a light tonal blue with darker purple, pink, navy, and gold speckles. Together they make up the “Baby You’re A Star” set, as all who embark upon this learning adventure truly are stars in their own right.

Knit Stars 3.0 Yarn Usage: No specific Star. This highly collectible pairing is just for fun! However, Sheila is knitting "Rebel Two" by Lesley Robinson of Knit Graffiti Designs, and Lesley has generously agreed to include a 15% pattern discount code inside your student portal once Knit Stars 3.0 debuts this fall.
