Stranded Dyeworks - Gingerbread Haus

Remember way back in July when we hosted a trunk show with Amy from Stranded Dyeworks and she created a custom color for us? We went with a Christmas theme then because we genuinely feel like anytime we have the opportunity to visit with Amy, it's basically Christmas morning! The response was so great that Amy decided to make it her official 2019 Christmas color and WE HAVE IT IN STOCK (for now)!

It's not alll just about treating yourself (because we know you won't be giving away socks made with Amy's yarn)!  If you're looking for a cute yet practical holiday gift exchange idea for your crafting circle, these super affordable floursack tea towels are an excellent idea!
