Before I launched Indie Untangled, I learned of Eden Cottage Yarns through a swap in the Yarn Hoars group on Ravelry. My Alaska-based swap partner listed it as a yarn she’d always wanted to try, so I happily browsed their website and grabbed a skein of bright purple laceweight and moody brown/gray fingering for my package. A couple of years later, Victoria was one of the first dyers I contacted about my new marketplace and she has been a consistent presence in this newsletter. For this month’s installment of the Indie Untangled 10th anniversary series, Victoria is dyeing this floral-inspi ..read more

As many of us spend a holiday weekend enjoying the great outdoors, it seemed appropriate to launch the next installment of the Indie Untangled Knitting Our National Parks series. This one takes us a bit further afield. Faery of Apothafaery Luxury Fibers was inspired by the stunning landscapes of the National Park of American Samoa, home to coral reefs, volcanic mountains and pristine rainforests. Faery created two colorways: the variegated Tutuila, one of the four islands that comprises the national park, and the semisolid Vai Paia, which is Samoan for holy water. They will both be availa ..read more

For the August installment of the Heritage Wool Collective yarn subscription, Isabel and Nick of the Great Ocean Road Woolen Mill are milling up their La Bella Fingering, a blend of Australian Merino and dark alpaca, which gives the yarn a soft gray tint that will provide a complex undertone for hand dyeing. Hannah of Circus Tonic Handmade, also based in Australia, is creating a colorway inspired by a 300-year-old Ghost Gum tree she visited in the Northern Territory to create “garment-perfect neutrals, leaning in to the natural shades of the yarns.” You have until this Sunday, June 30, to ..read more

Yarn and craft trends from h+h americas 2024

This year marked the third annual h+h americas trade show and it was the busiest and buzziest yet. For those of you who aren’t familiar, h+h is a wholesale show for the craft industry: yarn crafts like knitting, crochet and embroidery (more on the latter as a “yarn craft” in a bit), as well as fabric and thread crafts like quilting and sewing, though it was light on garment sewing brands. It’s a North American offshoot of h+h in Cologne, Germany, and fills a hole for the yarn industry after The National Needlearts Association (TNNA) canceled its summer trade show in 2020. From May 1-3, two hal ..read more
