On the Eleventh Day of Yarn-mas, Jimmy got for me, Eleven Pipers Piping from solstice yarn!!!!


This solstice yarn Luna Sock may be the Pied Piper of Pipers Piping, because I would follow this yarn anywhere!!!



Rachel and I had the opportunity to meet the owner (and family) of the Dublin Bay Knitting Co. and solstice yarn at Vogue Knitting Live Seattle 2014, and we fell in love with their super soft and luxurious fibers- as well as their welcoming and kind spirit!!!

From Tricia of solstice yarn:

"solstice yarn was founded in 2007 by Dublin Bay Knitting Company Owner, Tricia Maynard. Longing for more subtle colorways in hand dyed yarns, Tricia set out to create her own, and solstice was born. Since its official debut December 21, 2009, solstice has grown to ten yarns with two more in development for 2014/15.

The colorway I created for Yarn-mas is a mix of deep blues and greys because "11 Pipers Piping" reminded me of the Scottish Highlands and the muted tones of the Scottish sky during winter that are reflected in the tartans of that region."
solstice yarn was born out of a want and need for subtly colored hand-dyes, and they achieve this time and time again in all of their luxurious bases!!!



We are so happy solstice yarn said yes to Yarn-mas- make sure to check out the latest verse in our Carol!!!!

Stay tuned for the last of our 12 yarns tomorrow!!!

Happy happy Yarn-mas!!!
