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 911 trees!! One step closer to our 2022 goal!
April's Most Popular Yarn
The reigning champion cannot be beat! For the fourth time, our most popular yarn this month is Darn Good Twist Sport Weight Silk Yarn in Twisting Rainbows!!
Take a look at what some of the amazing members of our community made with their twist sport weight silk yarn!
Lookin’ Good & Doin’ Good!
The most popular clothing item in April was our outstanding Aanya Adjustable Short Tunic - Goddess! These goddess short tunics have saved over 120 pounds of sari materials from the landfill!
If you’re more of a fashionista and less of a crafter (I’m only judging you a liiiiiittle bit!) you will adore these tunics! They’re handmade out of reclaimed sari materials and each tunic is one of a kind!
