I'll be honest, all colorways that are green and slightly brackish looking instantly get the name 'Gill-Man' in my head. For this one, I just decided to make it official.
This is a one of a kind colorway.
Squirm is our favorite yarn base when it comes to bouncy, soft, squishy yarn. The blend of 80% extra fine merino and 20% nylon makes it next to skin soft and sturdy enough to withstand a good amount of wear. Perfect for cozy warm garments, shawls and socks.
Especially with speckled colorways, and some variegated ones, Squirm tends to have an uneven covering of speckles when balled and going from the outside to the inside of the ball. This is a result of the yarn being spun high twist and it's impossible to reach all the way through the skein with powdered dyes because it is that thick. This may result in the first sock you knit (of a set) having more speckles than the second one. In garments, it may give you a slight gradient effect.
If you do not want this effect, we advise you to select one of our other yarn bases.

As a fat fabulous creature, I (Aiden) know how hard it can be to source enough yarn to make myself a sweater. What takes the 'average' person 4 - 5 skeins, takes me at least 6 and usually around 8 skeins. (I'm between a 134 cm / 54 inch torso circumference).
It makes knitting or crocheting garments with hand dyed yarn a pretty costly adventure, which is why I am now offering discounts for yarn quantities that are above average.
This discount applies to all of our hand dyed yarns (that are not on sale), and can be combined between bases and colorways. You could make that top that uses a bajillion colors, or just pick the skeins for a single color project.
I'm not plus size. Can I use these discount codes?
We will not police purchases and I will not exclude people from this discount based on their size. Hell, I encourage everyone who wants to use these codes for their 5+ skein purchases to use it. The economy is tight enough as it is and society already does enough excluding, no need for me to tack on some more.
