I hope you are staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time of uncertainty. Thankfully, my employer is letting me work from home. I know this is not an option for many and I pray that you will stay healthy.
But the knitting must go on! I’m so glad that our favorite craft is one that requires only ourselves and some yarn! We are so very fortunate as knitters and crocheters! While others struggle to find a pastime, we merely dig through our stash for more yarn and matching needles!
And today’s featured yarn is a glorious one: Autumn and Indigo. This yarn is dyed by Claire, who lives in Washington state. I discovered this dyer only about six months ago – and am so glad I did!
Autumn and Indigo has several bases to choose from, including…
Classic Sock (75/25)
Cotton Wool Fingering (50% Cotton/50% Merino)
LOCAL Fingering (100% Rambouillet)
Merino Fingering (100% Merino)
Simple Wool (100% lambs wool)
Simple Tweed (85% lambs wool/15% Donegal neps)
Classic DK (100% Merino)
LOCAL DK (100% Rambouillet)
Alpaca DK (100% baby alpaca)
Classic Sport (100% Merino)
Classic Worsted (100% Merino)
Suri Silk (Lace – 74% Suri/26% Silk)
Claire offers many solids on all of her bases. Her colors are gorgeous – and I’m not usually drawn to solid skeins of yarn. But when I wanted some skeins for a green shawl, I knew I’d found the right dyer.
There’s always something available in the Autumn and Indigo shop. And it’s always lovely! I’ve even seen some speckled sock yarn pop up…. And I wish I’d grabbed it!
Ease of Shopping
Claire’s website is easy to use and the yarn photography is superb.
Shipping is reasonable and free domestically if you spend $100 or more.
If you’re in need of some yarn during your period of isolation, turn to Autumn and Indigo! There are so many bases and colorways to choose….even this girl can love solid skeins of yarn!
