Sorry, this product is currently unavailable.
Teresa Ruch Tencel Yarn
1040 yards (Two skeins!) of Teresa Ruch's 100% 5/2 Tencel yarn. Tencel yarn is made from wood bark and is meant to mimic silk. The yarn is cool when you are warm and warm when you are cool. It is considered a green yarn and the chemicals involved in the process are reused in manufacturing until they are consumed in the manufacture process. It is a slinky, beautiful yarn with a great drape and shine. Teresa is truly an amazing dyer. She was a textile designer for Pendleton Blankets in Portland, Or for over a decade before becoming a well known weaver and dyer in her own right. Her colors are full of depth and are amazingly saturated. They are a delight to the senses.

Over the years one of the knitting side hobbies I have developed is a love for photography. The August KAL Kit includes seven high quality postcards with my favorite photos of yarny art featured on each card. These are mail ready and include one of my favorite knitting sayings.
I fell in love at first sight with these beautiful and sharp scissors whose style calls back to the beautiful singer sewing machines of the 20th century. These scissors are SHARP making them aesthetically pleasing and practical. Every one in my house knows not to use my embroidery scissors for any reason!
Sterling Silver Stitch Marker
One sterling silver tag stamped with "YO" for yarn over. The ring portion of the marker is sterling silver and is sealed with silver-lined seed beads to ensure snag free knitting.
