Products We Carry:
Alpaca Sportweight, Pediboo
There’s something really good about the way Frog Tree Yarn’s alpaca and wool-bamboo blends can make you feel. They’re soft and warm, and they come in an enticing array of fashionable colors at fair prices. But when you dig a little deeper you’ll find that knitting with yarns from a company that has a heart–can make you feel great.
Frog Tree Yarns is a not-for-profit family-run business, established to help struggling artisans in Bolivia and Peru support themselves with their craft. The owners take no payment for their work, and contribute profits to provide educational opportunities to those who might not be able to afford them.
Frog Tree Pediboo is superwash blend of wool and bamboo. It was originally designed for socks, but the spectacular stitch definition, drape and sheen make it ideal for sweaters and shawls as well. Try it in Dahlia. Because of its softness and washability, Pediboo is also a favorite for baby items.
Alpaca yarn is usually delicate and drapey, but because of its twist, Frog Tree Alpaca Sportweight has elasticity and wears without pilling. It is a favorite for stranded colorwork. Try it in these mittens from Knitty.com
