Brooklyn in June is a color way inspired by my visit to Stitch Up Brooklyn in June 2019. The colors were pulled from not only the beautiful sunset we experienced from the rofftop of the Box House Hotel on the Friday evening of the event, but also from the colors of the yarn bomb created by the attendees of Stitch Up Brooklyn. All in all, this color way represents how my heart felt after leaving the event, and I wanted to share a piece of that with all of you.


This is a Pre-Order listing for Brooklyn in June. Orders placed from this listing will be shipped as soon as possible, but may take up to three weeks. This listing will be available for a limited time only.

All yarn is hand dyed in small batches making each skein beautifully unique. Product photos are a representation of the skein that you will receive, but may not be the exact skein. Please note that even skeins in the same dye batch may vary in appearance. The colors of the skeins are represented as accurately as possible in these photos, however, actual colors may vary due to monitor settings, or lighting.


To keep consistency and avoid color pooling when knitting larger projects with hand dyed yarn, it is recommended that you alternate two separate skeins every row, or every two rows.


All yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes, or natural dyes when noted. Yarn is hand rinsed to the best of my ability, however, it is not uncommon for some light bleeding to occur during the first few washes, especially in darker or highly saturated colors. If bleeding is a concern, I recommend hand wash/rinsing your yarn according to the care instructions prior to beginning your project.

  • To keep your knits looking their best, it is recommended that you gently hand wash them using a wool wash or mild detergent and room temperature water. Never wring or rub your knits, simply remove excess water by blotting with a towel and air dry flat.
