2. Sari Silk Wrap Skirt
I don't know about you, but when I buy gifts for others, I like to know that the money that I put into those gifts is going towards a good cause. This way, it's almost like giving two gifts- one to a friend and one to someone in need! Our recycled Sari Silk Wrap Skirts are handmade by seamstresses who work in our affiliate co-ops in India. The profits from these skirts allow these women to have a safe working environment and to make a sustainable wage.
If you're shopping for a woman who loves comfortable, versatile, and stylish fashion, she will love one of our Sari Silk Wrap Skirts! Each one of these skirts is completely unique and reversible!
3. Market Tote Knit and Crochet Kits
Crafters love gifts that they can not only make, but also use on a daily basis! That's what makes our Market Tote Kits such a popular gift. Who doesn't need a roomy, washable, and reusable bag to bring to markets and carry around their belongings or craft supplies? The majority of the people on your gift list will have a use for these totes!
Each kit includes 4 skeins of our Chiffon Ribbon Yarn and your choice of either a knit or crochet pattern for free!
Give the gift of eco-friendly carrying convenience to the knitters and crocheters in your life!
4. Amigurumi Kits
These adorable amigurumi kits can be given as gifts in two different ways. If you're giving this gift to a crafter, give them the whole kit to work with and enjoy! If you're a crafter and the gift recipient is not, use these kits to make small yarn animals, cacti, or fruit to give away as cute homemade gifts.
These kits include stuffing, knitting needles, a crochet hook, a knitting pattern, a crochet pattern, and the yarn required to complete each project.
5. Darn Good Yarn of The Month Subscription
Have you ever thought about getting a monthly subscription box for a friend or loved one? This is a gift that keeps on giving! For the yarn crafters in your life, the Darn Good Yarn of The Month box will serve as a monthly reminder that you care. Sign Up for only $10 a month!
Each box comes with one skein of yarn (plus monthly club exclusive offers), a knitting pattern, a crochet pattern, and a mystery gift! All of the yarn that comes in our monthly boxes is made out of ethically sourced recycled silk. Box recipients will have a new fiber art project to work on with each new box! The subscription will renew each month.
6. Yarn Storage Bag Bundle
This is a product that we here at DGY created specifically for gift giving! This bundle includes one canvas yarn storage bag, two jumbo crochet hooks or two pairs of jumbo knitting needles (your choice), and 6 skeins of recycled yarn.
The yarn storage bag is ideal for all knitters and crocheters who love to practice their hobbies on the go! Plus, as we all know, no fiber artist can have "enough yarn".
7. Watercolors Worsted Weight 10 Pack
Our Worsted Weight Roving Silk Yarn is one of our most popular yarns because of its unique variegation and soft texture! The Watercolors colorway is especially popular because of its bright and happy rainbow look. If the fiber artist you're shopping for has never tried silk yarn, this is a great one to start with! If they have tried and love silk yarn, they will most definitely love this bundle of 10 cakes!
Each cake of recycled silk yarn in this bundle weights 50 grams and contains 75 yards of yarn.
8. Chiffon Ribbon Color Packs and Ombre Packs
For the knitter, crocheter, or weaver who loves unique yarns made with a variety of fabrics, recycled chiffon ribbon yarn is a must. This soft and beautiful eco-friendly ribbon yarn is made with 100% repurposed chiffon fabric!
This chiffon ribbon yarn comes in color packs and ombre packs, which contain 4 skeins each and make great gifts! Our color packs come with free patterns and a silk tote bag! Each individual skein contains 75 yards.
9. Violet Summer Tote Crochet Kit
So maybe you liked the idea of the Market Tote Kit, but you like the idea of working with cotton yarn even more. If so, take a look at this option! Many people prefer bags with long, over-the-shoulder or cross-body straps. If that describes a crocheter on your gift list, the Violet Summer Tote Crochet Kit is perfect for them! This kit includes an easy-to-follow crochet pattern and three skeins of our Cotton T-Shirt Yarn in the color of your choice!
This fun summertime tote bag can be used for the beach, outdoor markets, travel, and much more!
