Tantalizing Twelve Stripers!

Our Etsy shop update on Friday, April 15, will include two 12-stripe colorways — “Chocolate Rainbow” and “It’s Zombody’s Birthday”.  These super-long striping colorways will be in limited supply, so get them while they last!

Chocolate Rainbow Skein

Our newest 12-stripe colorway mixes bright rainbow colored stripes with three different shades of warm chocolate brown stripes.  This colorway was dyed on both our Yellowstone Base and our Big Sky Base, and the striping is 5 rows each of yummy purple, dark chocolate, cotton candy blue, blueberry tart, green apple, milk chocolate truffle, starburst orange, lemon yellow, cherry cordial, raspberry chips, nougat, and huckleberry.  Each skein comes with a Sister Sidekick mini skein in cotton candy blue or huckleberry (Big Sky Base), or green apple or nougat (Yellowstone Base).

This jewel-toned striper has been one of our most popular, so we are bringing it back.  Dyed on our Yellowstone Base, the 5-row striping sequence corresponds with each month’s birthstone:  Garnet (Jan), Amethyst (Feb), Aquamarine (Mar), Diamond (Apr), Emerald (May), Alexandrite (June), Ruby (July), Peridot (Aug), Sapphire (Sept), Pink Tourmaline (Oct), Topaz (Nov), and Zircon (Dec).  Each skein comes with a Sister Sidekick in “Garnet” (Jan) or “Amethyst” (Feb).


Sugar Skulls Skein

This colorway combines solid colored stripes with wide speckled stripes and was inspired by the funky “sugar skulls” fabric in an Erin Lane project bag.  This colorway was dyed on our Big Sky Base, and the striping consists of approximately 2 rows of tangerine icing, 5 rows of strawberry sweets, and 8 rows of speckled sugar, followed by 2 rows of blue raspberry icing, 5 rows of Day of the Dead black, and 8 rows of speckled sugar.

We have re-dyed this colorway (one of our first), and it is the second in our new Beatles series.  Dyed on the Big Sky Base, the striping consists of 5 rows each of aquamarine blue, sea bed grey, tidal wave green, algae lime, carbonate purple, and chlorophyll green.  As Ringo sings, “I’d like to be under the sea in an Octopus’s garden in the shade.”  Ringo Starr of the Beatles, 1969.



Call the Midwife Skein

We were so excited for the start of Season 6 of “Call the Midwife” that we dyed this colorway again on our Yellowstone Base.  The striping consists of 6 rows of Sister Julienne, 6 rows of Trixie, 6 rows of Shelagh Turner, and 6 rows of Sister Mary Cynthia.  “Now and then in life, love catches you unawares, illuminating the dark corners of your mind, and filling them with radiance.  Once in awhile you are faced with a beauty and a joy that takes your soul, all unprepared, by assault.”


Star Wars Skein

These Are Not the Droids You’re Looking For

Just in time for the release of “The Force Awakens” on DVD, we re-dyed this colorway on our Big Sky Base.  The striping sequence is 5 rows each of R2-D2 blue, storm troopers white, Millennium Falcon grey, Chewbacca brown, BB-8 orange, and The First Order black.  “Without the Jedi, there can be no balance in the Force.”
