Swag from Nerd Bird Makery
We're now stocking allllll the goods from Nerd Bird Makery! We've long admired the work of Thao - owner of Nerd Bird Makery - and when we saw the call on Instagram for new stockists, we jumped and placed an order!

These totes are perfectly sized for loads of crafting projects and can pull double duty as your everyday tote for trips around town or to the farmers' market. Printed in Portland, sewn in San Francisco! 16 1/2" w x 17" h x 6" d.

(We weren't kidding when we said alllll the goods!)


Linen Stonewash Collection!
New from Berroco, this is for you linen lovers! Linen Stonewash is a must-see! This DK-weight, 100% linen yarn has a crisp texture that's dyed with a stonewash effect in a sophisticated, muted palette. The chainette construction of Linen Stonewash breaks up the normal new linen stiffness and creates a gentle sheen that you’ll love. 

In tandem with Linen Stonewash's debut, there's also an amazing pattern collection to complement it! Here's a round up of a few of our faves:

  • Odeleite tee - This simple tee is perfect for summer! Front and back are knit separately and seamed, with small, stylish keyholes at the bottom hems
  • Arade poncho Two panels of easy lace, knit and then joined at the shoulders to form a breezy poncho
  • Ceira cardigan - This simple dolman-sleeve cardigan begins at the sleeves and grows to the body, joining in the center back
