One pattern, two ways! The Lorelei Cowl is a free pattern that works up quickly in bulky yarns. With just a little tweaking of cast-on stitch counts, you can use many yarns. We knit the one on the left in Noro Obi, a wool/silk/mohair blend using just one ball. On the right is the same pattern, knit with two balls of Katia Junior, a new super bulky yarn that comes in a lot of fun colors! We love that this one is long enough to double up for extra coziness. 


We are super pleased to introduce Seed Lace from The Fiber Seed. Seed Lace has an amazing 1200 yards per skein, for all your gigantic lace projects. Or you could hold it doubled and still have an incredible 600 yards to play with. The Fiber Seed is an independent, family owned and operated hand-dyed yarn company that uses American milled yarn, environmentally safe dyes, and small batch production for a beautifully consistent and quality yarn. 


Happy Caps! This is a super cute hat kit that comes with a pom-pom! We have lots of fun colors for all the kids (or adults!) in your life. This is a super quick knit so you will want to make a few!


A Note from Christina, Organizer of Threads of Kindness:

Hello everyone...I'd like to invite you to join a group that is very near to my heart as I know it is for many of you.  We are working to provide hospice patients in middle Tennessee with a blanket or shawl for a little comfort at a time when they may most need it and preemie blankets and hats to many of the Nashville's Neo-Natal units.  If you think this giving opportunity may be right for you, please reach out to us.  We are fortunate to have generous yarn donations from Haus of Yarn helping us along our way and would love to share our stash with you.
