a YOTH gallery experience + a new pattern

We're rolling into Minneapolis this week to host a big event we've appropriately named the YOTH Gallery Experience at StevenBe. We're pulling out all the stops and setting up our entire booth inside of StevenBe! Come visit with us if you are near by. Details on our Events page.

Other than that... we have a new pattern for you. Thank you to all the knitters out there that we met along our travels recently who have been waiting patiently for this to launch. We hope you enjoy this sweet relaxing knit using our newest Mother yarn, a heavy lace weight that shouldn't scare you off with the word lace. It's a treat to knit and an interesting shape with buttons and eyelets along the edges that make it wearable in a million different ways. Named after our dear friend, Jenny, that we love so much!

poms on everything!

I've spent quite awhile recently searching and sourcing fur pom poms. I kept debating between ethically sourced genuine or faux fur... back and forth, back and forth. Love the look of real, but honestly, how long are huge fur pom poms going to be on trend? Would I really want to spend the bucks on the authentic stuff? I think I've found the perfect compromise.

Aren't they wonderful?! We currently have only black in stock and they're going fast. The hat is my 'izel' pattern, and remember that you get free shipping with 3+ skeins. Order 2 Big Sister skeins for the 'izel' and a Father skein for the Father Cables or Thea Colman's Another Bourbon and then add enough poms to make your heart content. Done and done.

It's been a whirlwind past couple of weeks! The launch of Tolt Yarn and Wool's beautiful book, Farm to Needle: Stories of Wool, that we are so honored to be featured in. We've released our new all American wool yarn base. Mother, the sweet and beautiful heavy lace weight and Father, the true and hardworking worsted. You can find the new yarn dyed up in our twelve Raw Palette colors. Plus, we're gearing up for our wonderful local yarn show, Knit Fit, this weekend that we love so much. It's definitely not boring around these parts.

So, to celebrate the launch of our new yarns and all the commotion, we've put together a free unisex hat pattern perfect for the gift giving season. Lots of twisting cables amongst a neat textured stitch background. It's sure to be a classic and hit for all the deserving knit lovers in your life, or yourself. Enjoy!

mother & father

To the parents that made our dream a reality,

We are proud to announce our new Mother and Father yarn line, a 100% Domestic Rambouillet sourced from a small gathering of farms west of the Rockies. This is a yarn line that is near and dear to our hearts. It has been a goal even before we began to have something so genuine and true. This is the hard working yarn we have been looking for and so fitting to the parents that have tirelessly believed in us from the start.

Both yarns are an exquisitely spun 3-ply that is round and earthy, yet soft and bouncy to the touch. The new yarn is available in our 12 Raw Palette colors to begin. Mother is a heavy lace weight and yields a nice length of 550 yards in each skein. It will carry you far lengths in a lightweight garment or go the distance in a lace project. Father is the new worsted weight and as the name implies will be strong and hardy. The weight offers 220 yards and is perfect for quick knit accessories or robust garments that love great stitch definition. Our yarns’ namesakes are without a doubt the most relentless people we know, so we think you deserve a yarn as hardworking as them.

This year has been the greatest time of our lives. Traveling across the U.S. with the best team we could possibly put together, our family. Mom and Dad have been here every step of the way. From late nights winding Puppies to long drives in the YOTH mobile to hit our next event. We can’t express our gratitude enough. They will never complain and never allow us to either. They came to America with very little and managed to give us everything we could ever want in life. Told us we could be anything we want in this beautiful country as long as we work hard enough to earn it. This yarn is as dear to our hearts as the couple that inspired it.

Love,

Little Brother & Big Sister
