Description

We look forward to the New York Sheep & Wool Festival at Rhinebeck every year, and we're so sad we won't be welcoming you to our booth in person. But that won't stop us from bring a little bit of Baltimore to you!

Introducing Motor House: this year's Rhinebeck limited edition color. Named for a shared arts space on North Ave, Motor House has a cool gray base with a medley of eye-popping speckles, inspired by our city's love of graffiti and public art. In fact, Motor House sits in front of Graffiti Alley, a popular spot for street artists from all over town. We love this block so much that it's a featured location in our Transitions Lookbook, and now we can share it with yarn-lovers no matter how far away.

 Your yarn will be dyed to order. Please allow 1-2 weeks for fulfillment.

Studio Worsted is now GOTS-certified organic! This switch means that our yarn uses an environmentally-friendly process to make sure it’s still machine-washable and as soft and vibrant as ever. Organic Studio Worsted is available in 4 oz skeins.

For more information about our decision to transition from traditional please read Karida's interview from Making Stories here.

Subtle color variations are achieved through kettle dyeing.

A note about speckles: Each skein is individually dyed, so while these pictures are representative of the color, your skein will not look exactly like the pictures. Each and every skein is truly unique! 

Care instructions:
Machine wash on gentle cycle or hand wash using mild soap. Lay flat to dry. We recommend washing with Eucalan.
