This is the first exclusive yarn from WORK + SHELTER, an organization started by Theresa VanderMeer.
WORK+SHELTER creates safe spaces across India where women in need can come to live and work. W+S encourages self-reliance amongst its female stakeholders by promoting hands-on training and capacity building, emphasizing the creation of naturally dyed fibers and hand-crafted knitwear
After a few experiments with Indian teas, Katie Canavan developed three lovely colors of fingering weight, 100% wool yarn. They are Darjeeling (a warm, variegated brown), Lemon Grass (a cool, greenish brown) and Chamomile (a warm light yellow). Each was hand dyed using its namesake tea, and each skein is unique.
They are now available in the W+S etsy shop, and the profits go to the W+S shelter. Thanks for your continued support!
