This month’s YarnYAY selection, inspired by the blue and natural shades produced by using indigo Shibori dyeing, is HiKoo CoBaSi Dk
It’s a textural combination of cotton, bamboo and silk, resulting in a sturdy yarn that’s also sheens with softness. I designed both #knit and #crochet market bags to go with this yarn, but it would also make a great, Summer ascot or baby cardigan. ***There are only 30 August 📦 spaces left before these beauties are gone!

One of the core intentions for my YarnYAY! business is to help support local yarn stores. We need them as the physical hubs for our creative community. It’s my hope that subscribers will consider the yarns and novelty items I choose, and the small projects I design as introductions — that’ll they’ll then go buy more from their LYS.
Your local shop doesn’t carry one of the yarns featured in a YY box? Ask them to — be a connector between that store and an independent dyer or yarn company. We’re all in this together! ***Subscribe to YarnYAY! today by clicking on the link in profile or going to YarnYAY.com *** ➿
