What is Darn Good Yarn?
The company was founded by Nicole Snow in 2008. What started with a single ball of handmade silk yarn and a desire to be the most creative version of herself. She wanted to and help others do the same. Darn Good Yarn has now grown into a global creative community.
What do they offer?
The company offers handmade yarn, crafting supplies, kits and monthly subscription boxes. The company also offer clothing and accessories such as sari and cotton wrap skirts. These are handmade by company’s employees in India.
I have previously written about how the company helps disadvantage people and veterans economically.
What is yarn?
By definition, yarn is a thread made of natural or synthetic fibers and is used for knitting or weaving. But yarn is more than just thread or fibers, yarn is a story. From the beginning of its story while it is still being woven by the delicate hands of the company’s workers, to the middle as it passes from their hands to yours.
The end of the story is what you decide you want it to be. Whether you decide to buy yarn and turn it into your own creation, or if you decide to buy a ready-to-wear item. Darn Good Yarn sells more than just yarn because they believe in products with a story. Darn Good Yarn has fabulous art yarns in many unusually unique fibers, the materials for spinning, doll-making, rug hooking, jewelry making, fiber art, mixed media projects and more! If you need amazing craft supplies and want to support a great cause, you’re in the right place.
What is my passion?
My passion is yarn. I collect them just like other collect stamps, and the balls are laying in my shelves until the projects are popping up. I mostly knit sweaters and socks, but I crochet and weave too.
To be honest I feel good every time I have purchased something from Darn Good Yarn, because of their social contribution and support.
