By purchasing yarn from String Theory, you’re lifting up a number of small and female-owned businesses. We help women in Rwanda, who survived the genocide, educate a new generation. We help women in Uruguay find meaningful work without leaving their rural homes. We help a family in New Hampshire maintain a mill, a tradition spanning hundreds of years. We help restore the Patagonia Grasslands by encouraging sustainable farming.Every yarn we stock makes a positive impact.
Migration yarns are dyed by local artist, Linda Wallace and sold exclusively at String Theory. Linda rarely repeats a color, so if you see something you like grab it now and get an extra skein, just in case ;)
This Traveler base is strong enough for socks. It makes wonderful sweaters (for babies and adults alike). We also like how it drapes in shawls.
80% superwash Blue Face Leicester wool and 20% nylon
Impact: 10% of all sales goes to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
*These are hand-dyed skeins done in small batches, please make sure you have enough of the colorway you need to complete your project. Although skeins may look similar, no two skeins are exactly alike. I recommend alternating skeins if using more than one.
