Last year, when we went to Colorado and I got to visit a new yarn store, I saw yarn dyed by Explorer Knits and Fibers for the first time. This lovely yarn is dyed by Ali who lives in Colorado. She loves nature and the National Park system, as you can tell from her yarn bases, and is clearly inspired by all the beauty surrounding her in Colorado. She even donates an amount from every item sold to the National Park Foundation.
Let me tell you more about Ali’s yarn…
Explorer Knits has beautiful yarn on many bases, including…
Suri Alpaca (Lace – 74% Baby Suri/26% Mulberry Silk)
Denali Sock (Fingering – 80/20)
Cashmere Caverns Sock (Fingering – 80% Merino/10% Nylon/10% Cashmere)
Rockies Sock (100% Merino)
Tetons Sock (Light Fingering – 75/25)
Rockies DK (100% Merino)
Carlsbad Worsted (100% Merino)
There is rarely yarn on the Explorer Knits website unless you catch an update – so be sure to follow Ali on social media. You’re more likely to find Ali’s yarn at one of the many shops that stock Explorer yarns.
Ease of Shopping
Ali’s website is super easy to use and contains information on how the yarn is sourced and dyed. There are also many colorways listed on the site.
Since I’ve never lucked into a shop update, I can’t speak to the shipping rates for the Explorer Knits website.
I only have one skein of Ali’s yarn but I will definitely look to buy more in the future. Her yarn is gorgeous and so, so soft. And it’s so nice to know that a portion of your purchase benefits the National Parks!
