This year, more than ever, shopping small & local really makes a big difference. It helps those small locally-owned businesses keep doing what they love. Also, saving you on shipping costs and reducing your carbon footprint! Usually the income made from various purchases, returns back into the community (as least in my case!!). So, for holiday shopping – black friday and cyber monday deals, look at the businesses closest to your home (or heart). 🙂
These gorgeous yarns Storyteller are locally dyed by Aubrey of Knits and Knots. Each is unique and one skein will create a stunning accessory to gift or knit/crochet up!
Also locally made – Fibres by Ramona. Hand spun and dyed in Carson Valley, this sock yarn is soft to touch with the durability needed for wearing. Included in a 4 pack (enough for a pair) is a stitch marker! And they’re on sale!
Another favorite for locals and fiber lovers everywhere – Valkyrie Fibers. I was lucky to snag a few skeins from Knits and Knits and have one set left! Loving these on my dreareneeknits‘ Marley Shawl – BRIOCHE FOR DAYS! Side note: if you’re not familiar with DreaReneeKnits – please check out her website. She’s absolutely amazing!!!!!
