Handmade Monday: Micro-Brewed Series!

Tanis Fiber Arts Orange Label Worsted in Luxe


There’s a world of knitters out there dreaming about color. Did you know?

We do. And oh, are we glad that we do.

These knitters, crocheters, crafters, artisans - choose your label, they're all fitting - are so inspired to bring their color dreams to life that they're dyeing their own yarn. 

"What?", you say? Yes, people. Yes. 



Black Bunny Fibers Worsted in Paddy's Pub


They’re dyeing yarn in their kitchens, bathrooms, backyards – anywhere they can find the extra space – and then releasing their fabulous creations through Etsy, Ravelry, and Facebook. So we had a lightbulb moment.

A yarn-bulb, if you will.


Fable Fibers Novel in Sugar Spun


Why not bring a bunch of small hand-dyers together in a JBW Exclusive Series, to show our customers a glimpse of this amazing, colorful world?

We thought, these small dyers are equivalent to the micro-breweries popping up all over the place now, bringing back the artisanal craft of small-batch beer brewing. Yarn...beer...yum. 

The JBW Micro-Brewed Series was born!


Holiday Yarns Woolie Ewe Worsted in Fuchsia Fusion

Each month, we release three exclusive colorways from independent hand-dyers. Each batch is a limited run, meaning that once it's gone, it's gone!

Sad, we know. 

You'll just have to buy some yarn to make yourself feel better. It's what we do.

What you see here is but a sampling...head on over to our Micro-Brewed Series page to read all about these amazing yarns and their dyers!


Sincere Sheep Cormo Fingering in Cecil B.


We can't wait to see what next month will bring!

Well, to be fair, we already know - but we can't wait for you to see it! 

Happy Knitting!
