My recent pattern, the #140 Vintage Charmer One-Ball Hat has been a great best-seller! Now, meet the company that created the gorgeous, hand-spun and hand-dyed 100% baby alpaca yarn used in this project AND enter to win one of 3 kits!
This pretty hat pattern was sponsored by hollytreedyeworks.etsy.com.
Thanks, Sarah, the creator of all The Holly Tree Dyeworks yarns, for the beautiful seafoam green hank that you created and sent to me that inspired and really made this hat so special!
Here's more on The Holly Tree Dyeworks:
Sarah set up her shop after finding it difficult to get good quality yarn for projects she wanted to knit for her own children and eventually set up on Etsy to bring designer yarn to fellow fibre addicts at a great price.
She runs her shop from her studio tucked away at the back of her 19th Century
Victorian House, the studio overlooks the garden and very particularly the lovely old Holly Tree where the yarn is dried in good weather and this provides a lot of inspiration for her work.
All her colors are hand blended and hand dyed by her.
Thanks, Sarah!! I loved knitting with the chunky baby alpaca. It was incredibly soft and light! And the green shade had so much depth, it really made the Vintage Charmer hat a longtime keeper ;-)
