Shedding Some LightHi! Welcome to the third post in this series where we are journeying through the stories of our amazing artisans and also what this business really means to me and my team.

Best Yarn for a Blanket
To me, there are few things as peaceful and beautiful as a morning. Especially those quiet, cold mornings where the sun is reflecting off of the snow and I can calmly sip my tea under my coziest blanket while watching Good Morning America. For that hour or so, I don’t have a care in the world outside of my couch.
For a little weekend inspiration, Darn Good Yarn wants to share some of our favorite yarn to make a blanket! We have yarn for thick blankets, knit blankets, crocheted blankets and light-made blankets. Whatever you’re looking for- Darn Good Yarn has it.

Darn Good Friends
Here at Darn Good Yarn, our favorite way to celebrate Friday Eve is to celebrate our DGY family! Every day, we receive pictures of GORGEOUS creations from our very talented family and we can't help but brag. Think of this as our way of hanging your test on our fridge. We're just too proud and impressed not to share it with everyone!

We heart it: Relationship Goals
Do you know why I love February 14th so much? Well, it's a beautiful day full of love<3, chocolate & the halfway point of being done with February---bringing us closer to Spring!! :) But, all jokes aside, it is a beautiful day to celebrate the pairing of two people (or yarns) that compliment & bring out the best in each other all while making beautiful creations together.

The Women Behind It All: Meet Biwi
This is absolutely going to be my favorite part of each of these 3 part series. I get to introduce you to the amazing women artisans who make our products; the very reason this company is what it is. I couldn't be more thrilled <3
So without further ado, meet Biwi Chunni. She works with one of our cooperatives and makes the yarn many of you use. There are 10 people in her family and include herself, her husband, 4 sons and 4 daughters. (And I thought just one was a handful.) :)
