October 31, 2019 4 min read

Time to Spread Cheer to all that are Near!

It's that time of year again! Time to find gifts to give for everyone in your life. Your eccentric mom, picky sister, and quirky best friend (Oh, and don't forget yourself). We love gifts that are more than a physical object. A gift with a story holds so much more meaning. We feel honored and inspired all year by the amazing artisans that hand make our products. Each time you make a purchase from Darn Good Yarn, you're giving back by creating jobs, saving the planet, and empowering women all over the world. Now that's a gift worth giving. Here are our top picks for sustainable home goods and wears.

1. Fleece Lined Wool Socks

Darn Good Yarn has a growing relationship with artisans in Nepal. Just like our partners in India, we are helping provide jobs and empower manufactures in Nepal. One of our favorite products that comes from our Nepal Artisans are our Fleece Lined Wool Socks. These socks are all hand knitted and come fleece lined which makes them extra cozy. These socks are one size fits most and will comfortably fit a women's 6 to a men's 10. Please note that due to the handmade nature of these socks, some pairs may slightly fluctuate in size. Everyone's tension is slightly different when knitting! These socks are perfect for skiers and hikers but also are the best house slippers for laying by the fire and watching a movie :)

2. Recycled Sari Wrap Skirt

Your support of the Sari Wrap Skirt has saved over 1,000,000 pounds of sari fabric from ending up in a landfill! We've been able to provide jobs to artisan women in India and give our planet the opportunity to reuse what could have been waste. We are very proud of the good we've done together. We appreciate the fun and creative support we've received from our customer community.

These skirts come in Women's Sizes 4-26 and Girls sizes 4-12. We believe every person deserves to feel empowered and wear clothes that make them feel like the unique and bold person they are. Wearing sustainable clothes doesn't mean you have to sacrifice color or pattern. We proved it with these skirts!

3. Mystery Sari Silk Medley Scarf

We use recycled material because it truly means every piece of clothing is one-of-a-kind. We love coming up with new ways to use the sari fabric and create fun products you can wear all the time. Born from this desire, we introduce you to the Mystery Sari Silk Medley Scarf! This scarf has four pieces of sari fabric sewn together to create a beautiful and unique item you can add to any outfit! We love wearing it as a scarf, but it also works as a chunky headband or headscarf!

4. Upcycled Sari Scrunchie 5 Pack

If you haven't heard the news, listen up... Scrunchies. Are. Back. The leading 80's trend is back with vengeance, and we're ready. The problem with trends is that usually they are made quickly and with bad supplies. We love trends and we love the planet, which is why our scrunchies are all made with recycled sari fabric! The fabric helps reduce frizz and keep that pony tail fashionable!

5. One-of-a-Kind Sari Silk Purses

Each one of these Sari Silk Purses is slightly different and handcrafted with love by the women in our co-ops in Nepal. They are made with reclaimed pieces of sari material and are well-lined to make them sturdy enough to handle whatever you throw in them! The strap is adjustable and can be worn over the shoulder or on one shoulder. They are a beautiful way to add color to your wardrobe as well as help others on the other side of the world! Something we like to do at Darn Good Yarn is skipping wrapping paper and use other gifts to hold surprises inside! This bag is a great gift bag for other holiday treats.

6. Moroccan Dreams Earrings

If you're looking for a perfect, meaningful gift that isn't too big, these earrings are just the thing. They are also made from recycled sari fabric and are hand-knotted by our Schenectady ARC employees! Darn Good Jewelry creates an opportunity for adults with special needs who are often unemployed or underemployed. Created by acclaimed designer Maggie Dykzeul, this jewelry collection was designed as a form of art therapy for adults with special needs.

7. Pom Pom Tassel

Have we mentioned that nothing we do is boring? We look all over for ways to add more color into our life. Whether that be through our crafts, home decor, clothing, or accessories. These Pom Pom Tassels are perfect to add a splash of color into any outfit. We love attaching these to purses, backpack, key chain, or even wallet! Its easy to release clip makes it so easy to quickly swap between accessories so you can move it around whenever you want!

8. Small Macrame Hanging

Have you played around with Macrame yet? We love it. It's the perfect way to add texture to a room and show off a bohemian, cozy style. We have a bunch of different sizes, colors, and stitch patterns so it's a great opportunity to mix and match shapes to create a perfect wall design!

9. Handcrafted Limited Edition Felt Ball Rug

We know you're not supposed to pick favorites...but this rug may be ours. Our Felt Ball Rug comes in two shapes, rectangle and circle. They both are the perfect size for a welcome mat, entry rug, or for layering under furniture. We love how vibrant they are. Felt balls are hand sewn together to create these mesmerizing rugs. This is the best way to show a guest you are everything but boring right when they enter your home!
