Tilli Tomas Exclusive
We love Tilli Tomas! This socially conscious company, founded seven years ago, trains impoverished women in India to create embellished yarn; Tilli Tomas pays them per diem wages while providing daycare for their children. This partnership has allowed illiterate and abused women to provide food, shelter, and medical care for their families and gain independence—and knitters worldwide appreciate the hand-painted yarn, which has incredible depth of color vividly coordinated with sequins and European glass beads.
Owners Tracy Robinson and her brother, Tom, began with needlepoint handpainted canvases. With their love of textiles, they expanded to creating yarn and silk thread for embroidery and needlepoint. Tracy and Tom have now been working n the needle arts field for 13 years, and share three lucky dogs, all of whom love their knitted coats!
Tracy writes, “We are so excited to be partnering with The Yarn Company on a new hand-dyed exclusive Artisan Sock color called Knock-Out!” This colorway features deep black and blue with bolts of sharp color that catch you like a surprise left hook. Artisan Sock is ultrafine superwash merino with a dash of nylon for strength. As it is dyed in small batches, be sure to buy enough. It comes in whopping 440-yard skeins—enough for a hot pair of socks and a pair of texting mitts to punch up your style a notch.
Right now we have rock star, disco lights and artisan sock in so many delicious colors. and the best? Tilli Tomas send beautiful pattenr cards with each...quick but fabulous designs, free with the gloriously dyed yarn.
