Buy any 5 balls or skeins of yarn on the entire site (mix, match and coordinate!) and you’ll get a free ball of yarn. The free ball will be equivalent to the least expensive ball of yarn. If you would like to specify the free ball of yarn you’d like, just message us when you check out! You don’t need to add it to your cart! That’s important because you’ll get charged for it!
When you check out, after you submit your payment info (like credit card info) you will see a link that says “message seller” click that and just write a note to me like “hey Nicole I want my free ball of yarn to be the premium recycled silk yarn”.
Also, for any bulk packages of yarn (the 1kg or 2kg bulk discounts) this offer is excluded because the yarns in the bulk discount are so heavily reduced.
If you have any questions, just let me know! email@example.com

Finally! A poncho with a punch! And our model totally thinks so too! Isn’t she the cutest?!
Use our premium recycled silk. Depending on the size you are making changed the # of balls you need. But remember, when you purchase 5 balls you get a 6th one free!
This pattern is a knitted using circular needles and is for the slightly advanced beginner.
It will be emailed as a pdf to your email address. Depending on the size
It ranges from XS (what our little model is wearing) to XL!

I love Canada (did you know I went to school not too far from the border? Go Clarkson University!) and I’ve had some good times there (which we’ll save for another blog post). But I love Canada even more now because that’s where Daphne is from!
Who is this Daphne? An entrepreneur, an artist, a knitter, a yarnaholic, a fantastic photographer and a fellow Darn Good Yarner!
I wanted to share pictures of some of the items she made (including Darn Good Yarn’s very own 20,000 Leagues Under the Purse).
Did you know you can find her at craft fairs around Prescott Ontario too?! If you’re going to be in the area and want to check out (and buy) one of her purses here’s her contact info. Even if you’re not in the area and would like to purchase one of these simply darling bags (Remember the holidays will be here sooner than you know!!!) just shoot her an email and she’ll get you set up and ship it to you!
Daphne’s info is : firstname.lastname@example.org 613-925-3028 and she is located in Prescott Ontario Canada!

How flippen cute?!
This headband was inspired when I cut my bangs too much…uh oh. So the headband helped make my botched haircut job look halfway decent. See more of the drama on this video:
So, this kit will include enough recycled silk sari ribbon to make this headband along with a link to instructions and the beads.
You just need to supply the glue gun and a stick or two of hot glue.
You can choose which two flower colors you’d like on your headband. If you would like other color combos, just email us and ask and we’ll make it work for you!
