Plucky Knitter Crewbie

Plucky Knitter Crewbie

THE PLUCKY KNITTER (aka the lovely Sarah Dimond) has a small dyeing studio in Michigan and a very limited supply of excellent yarn bases, so her gorgeous yarns are not widely available. Even so, she's very kind to send us a small shipments every now and then of yarns dyed especially for us (sigh) in fun Churchmouse colors.

Crewbie is a delicious blend of merino and cotton that is custom milled and available only to Plucky. Perfectly soft against the skin, this blend gives a light and drapey fabric that just calls for warm weather knitting. The cotton takes the dye much differently than the merino, so the resulting Churchmouse colors are beautifully muted and slightly heathered. This yarn just begs to be knit up in our Simple Tee pattern!

Each color is stunning in its own right, and they all play so well together. (If a color doesn't appear below, it means we're sold out of that one in this small batch. So sorry.)

Sold Out Note: Whoops. Looks like the few hundred skeins The Plucky Knitter produced for us sold out very quickly. It may be several months before Sarah and Haley can dye another batch for us in their small facility. Want to be the first to know when they're back in stock?
