Linda Wallace aka Migration Yarn

 

 

Our Women Making History series would not be complete without a feature on Linda Wallace. Linda has had many roles at String Theory.  She has sold yarn, taught classes, wrote blog posts, created window displays and been an all-around champion of our mission. So when she told me that she wanted to dye yarn, I was immediately on board. Read more here about the start of her Migration Yarn Company.

 

 

 

Linda creates hand-dyed yarn that benefits organizations that bring awareness to the ongoing challenges faced by our fragile world. Every few months she releases a new collection inspired by a different organization. So far she has created two collections. The first was The Pollinator Collection which raised money for the Pollinator Partnership.

 

 

The second collection raised money for Annunciation House in El Paso, TX, an organization that is working hard for people caught in the confusion at our southern border.

Migration Yarns come in fingering and DK weights. They are available exclusively at String Theory. Though each color collection is unique and not repeated, we do have some colors from each collection available at String Theory now.

 

 

The next collection to debut at String Theory on May 5, will benefit the Coral Restoration Foundation, the world's largest non-profit marine-conservation organization dedicated to restoring coral reefs to a healthy state, in Florida and globally. Their core mission is to restore coral reefs, to educate others on the importance of our oceans, and to use science to further coral research and coral reef monitoring techniques.

 

For more teasers of Linda's new collection follow Migration Yarns on Facebook or on Instagram @migrationyarn.
