Hi there, Nicole here! I just wanted to take a few moments to share just a few " Day in the Life" stories with you from the women that create our yarns and skirts that you get! The great thing is that you make a HUGE difference in these women's lives. Whenever you purchase one of our skirts, chances are they went through the hands of one of these women.
We hope you feel enriched and happy whenever you wear the skirt and are reminded of all the good in the world.

Meet Biwi Fatima. She has a family of eight people. She has two daughters and four sons. Her goal is to get her daughters into college!

Meet Miss Tarranum. Her father is a laborer. She is part of a family of 10 with four sisters and four brothers. She's been making yarn for us since Darn Good Yarn started.

Meet Mrs. Heena. Her husband is a shopkeeper and she has one daughter. She's been working for Darn Good Yarn for five years. She likes to create for Darn Good Yarn because it is a family friendly occupation that allows her to work from home and be with her daughter. She's happy too because she use to make hand rolled cigarettes but there are health hazards with that occupation (like tobacco poisoning) and now she doesn't have to risk her health to support her family.
