Handspun Robin kits by Infinite Twist!

Do you know about Infinite Twist?  It’s a yarn company that makes handspun, hand-dyed yarn in Shanghai, which not only produces beautiful yarns, but also provides living wages for local spinners.  You can check out the video on the about page to learn and see more.

Some of the yarns are spun by Qinghai Spinner’s Cooperative, which gives sustainable jobs/income to rural Tibetan women (here’s an old blog post about that, when they were just starting to work together).

So I am super happy that Infinite Twist is now offering kits to make my Robin shawl, in this gorgeous Qinghai Handspun yarn!

There are three different kit options: Red Devil/Blush, Larkspur/Tibetan Turquoise, and Spooky Purple/Dovecote.  Each kit includes 475 yards of the beautiful handspun yarn, a bamboo circular knitting needle, stitch markers, and the download code for the Robin pattern.

I also have plans for a design in Infinite Twist yarn very soon – I was sent the yarn for this design awhile back, and in the package with it was this awesome box of yarn samples!

It just so happens that the person behind Infinite Twist, Cate Carter-Evans, has roots here in Portland, so I’ve gotten to hang out with her a couple times while she was in town visiting family.  What a fantastic person she is!

Got to grab a coffee with the fabulous @infinitetwist while wearing my UK trip sweater out in the world, and she's in a beautifully colored Robin shawl! Yay!

Really, I just can’t say enough good about this wonderful yarn company!  So, if you are ever craving some handspun, do browse around the Infinite Twist shop.  So much beauty!
