Trees.Org x Darn Good Yarn
Every purchase from our Be Darn Good Collection, gives back to the global community. For each purchase from this collection, a tree is planted by our friends over at trees.org! For 2022 we hope to plant 30,000 trees this year all around the world to help our global siblings. With each tree planted there is hope for the future -more food, more farms, more wildlife, and more jobs!
Thanks to our community, last month we were able to plant 698 trees!! One step closer to our 2022 goal!
October’s Most Popular Yarn
Three times a charm for our Mystery Skein of Yarn! For the third month in a row, our mystery yarn has steamed ahead of the competition to be the most popular yarn of the month for October! Our mystery skein of yarn is just that - a total mystery! For a discounted price, you will receive a skein of our premium handmade yarn. This could be any weight or colorway you've seen on our site.
Thanks to everyone who yearned for a little mystery, we were able to have 56 pounds of fiber!

For October, the most popular clothing item was our The Charlotte Chic Sari Short Robes!
These robes are perfect for lounging, sleeping, or layering with your favorite jeans! Made out of the same material as our famous sari wrap skirts, these robes are silky soft and totally unique!
