I’ve been handwriting the labels for Annie Yarn since before we even called it Annie Yarn — back when my dyer friend dyed my yarns for me. It’s something I want to keep doing for as long as I have time because it adds such a personal touch to a personal product. When I dye… Read More
Howdy all you LYS owners! Just a heads-up that our order minimum, which has been 100 skeins so far, will be increasing to 200 skeins in January.
