Chevron Hat

Hand-dyed self-striping yarns are pretty common in lighter weight yarns, so we were really excited to find one in a worsted weight! The Color Wheel is a superwash yarn that knits up in chunky stripes for super cute hats and other small accessories. We have a free pattern for the chevron striped hat when you purchase the yarn.



We all know how important gauge is, and how often you can't read those little numbers printed on the side of the needles. We just got a shipment of these wonderful wooden tools for measuring! From needle gauges to rulers (including a necklace!) these functional tools are both useful and visually appealing!


Berroco Indigo Prickly Poppy Cardigan

From Berroco's new yarn Indigo, we have a cute spring cardigan! Substantial enough to keep you warm on chilly days, without being too hot as the day warms up. Prickly Poppy is a sweet little cardigan knit in reverse stockinette, featuring an eyelet and rib motif on the front and sleeve cuffs.


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.
