Fall is in the air and we are all ready for a wonderful spooky season! We’re all working hard on our costumes and Halloween decor - we hope you have your costume all set to go! :)
Last month, our amazing community gathered together to save 9,139 pounds of textiles, fiber, paper, plastic, and wood from going into landfills all around the world.
To put all of that saved recycled material into perspective, here are some examples that weigh 9,139 pounds!
- 1,827 2-liter bottles of soda
- 365 toddlers (that’s a ton of toddlers!)
- 130 Irish Setters
- 70 newborn baby giraffes!
Totals for 2022
- No. of trees planted: 6,068
- Pounds of waste material saved: 93,741.13
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 790 trees!! One step closer to our 2022 goal!
September's Most Popular Yarn
For the second month in a row, the most popular yarn for September was our Mystery Skein of Yarn! 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 47 pounds of fiber!
Lookin’ Good & Doin’ Good!
One of my personal favorites has finally made it to the top!
Last month, the most popular clothing item was our Amara Recycled Sari Dusters! These gorgeous dusters - which come in two different lengths, are handmade out of 100% reclaimed sari material and each are one-of-a-kind! They are flowy and absolutely stunning for a nice fall time stroll. 🍂
Yarn Of The Month® Club
In September, our fabulous Yarn of the Month community helped us save 350 pounds of fiber thanks to their subscription! With each person that subscribes, we are able to protect the employment of our incredible artisans that you can meet HERE!!. For every 1,000 subscribers, our club can support one artisan for an entire year!
Skirt Of The Month® Club
I love the skirt club community~! You always look so good 😏
Last month, these stunning stars helped save 648 pounds of recycled and reclaimed sari fabric that has helped provide our skirt artisans safe and sustainable work! With the club steadily growing, we will be able to hire more artisans who are looking for safer work!
