I am so so excited about this new yarn not only is it gorgeous and handmade but it helps to support a small family business in Nepal. They start women up with their own businesses--which is hard to find. I was lucky enough to have come across the opportunity to work with them through a mutual friend and fellow mom/fiber business owner stateside. I was so excited to hear about this family that she had become close with. I felt that this fit in perfectly with CHY’s focus on supporting small scale hand crafting and women having money and flexibility.

  • It has the sheen of silk or Tencel with an eco-friendly, sustainable (made from the waste from banana harvesting), fair-trade, women-owned, small family business benefit.

  • custom-spun for us to be soft and baby-friendly. Much of what's out there is a very rough, rug-like bast

  • They slightly vary from skein to skein but they are all roughly sport weight/ DK and could be used in either pattern with some flexibility.

  • Some are in 3 oz skeins and run a bit thinner more sport ( approx 88 yards)

  • Some are in 5 oz skeins and run a bit closer to dk ( approx 100 yards)

  • Hand dyed by CHY in warm or cool metallics in a gradual color changing gradient pattern.

  • Fair trade product
