I dipped my toe into the world of Indie Dyeing 4 years ago and I have never looked back. I started knitting when I was 6 years old and I thought there was nothing else that could bring me such joy, until I mixed the dye and stood in the glow of the fumes ~ Shelia Anderson, artist behind Urban Girl Yarns
480 Yard / 125 grams
90% Superwash Merino / 10% Nylon
Named “VIRGINIA” because it represents the State that I now call home. The State of Virginia is where I got my dye start and learned to appreciate the ocean to the mountains. I’ve come to learn that the people are passionate and can be strong when needed and gentle when required. A State where Y’all is a subject, noun, and verb will always have character and love.
The fingering weight was selected to represent VA because it can be doubled forming a full DK or stand alone for a Lace pattern. This yarn is great for shawls, socks, sweaters, hats, etc. you name it and a great Fingering yarn will do it. That’s why I named this amazing yarn “Virginia”.
