Halfsy Skeins!

Sometimes you just want a little more than a mini skein but don't need a whole skein and thus the Halfsy skein was born! 

Our Halfsy is 50g/230 yards of 4ply fingering weight 75/25 superwash merino/nylon. The is the same base we use for our perfect must match sets. 

Introduced summer 2018 with new colors available quarterly and by request.

A fun way to knit your Must Stash!

The phenomenal designer, Tellybeanknits aka Stephanie Lotven, has created two beautiful designs using Must Stash self striping for the sleeves, the original Sock Arms Sweater and the Worsted Sock Arms Sweater! Patterns are available on Ravelry for fingering and worsted weight yarn.

A Big Thank You

Recently, we received a wonderful note from a faithful customer that just warmed our hearts immensely and I wanted to share a quote with you: 

"Just wanted to drop a note to thank you so much again for your inspiring and soothing work.  I received my Bohemian mill end which you so kindly dug up for me a few weeks ago, and was waiting to finish a different project until I allowed myself the indulgence of knitting myself (finally something for myself!) a lovely, simple pair of gorgeous socks.  Last night I got such pleasure rolling  the skeins into stunning happy little balls -watching the colors go by, and wrapping them into center-pull balls so the outside stays nice an stripey while I always get to be surprised to see which color I knit next from the inside, was such a thrill.  and casting on this morning was just blissful.  So nice to be able to melt into a knitting experience and just enjoy every stitch.  I love the colors, the way the dye took to the yarn -the subtle complexity meets a certain existential need I can't articulate.  I'm enjoying every second- thanks for gifting the knitting world with your inspired creative passion!" -AB

Thank you to this special customer and to everyone who takes the time to write us to let us know how much you love Must Stash...it always makes our day!

Here is a handy reference...

Each year, we bring hundreds of "Mill Ends" to DFW Fiber Fest. What we don't sell there, we destash online. This photo is a great illustation of how much sock you can knit from a short skein/mill end/leftover! 

Almost every new batch has a Mill End so if you are interested in getting one, please use the Contact Form in the footer/header to send us an email inquiring!

Quality

Quality is never an accident! It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution. 

We take our time to handcraft beautiful yarn that is excellently produced as a result, supplies will be limited.
