Yarn Review: Darn Good Yarn

Happy Monday, y'all! 

The workday is almost over, and if you're heading home to knit, I want to make sure you know about Darn Good Yarn!

Check out this snippet from the DGY website:

"After leaving the Air Force, she decided that she wanted to “unwind” with yarn. In early 2008, Nicole Snow decided to take two of her passions in life—art and helping others—and combine them. The result was “Darn Good Yarn” a yarn and fiber importer, wholesaler, and retailer.
The mission was simple: provide phenomenal quality fibers to enthusiasts, while helping the women of Nepal and India become autonomous and self-reliant."

I learned about DGY shortly after Nicole started her company. I ordered some of their classic recycled sari silk yarn (click here to see how beautiful it is!). I was pretty much in love at first sight. Also, I remember that Nicole wrote me a little thank you note for my order and tucked it in the box. I was floored and delighted. 

Since then, DGY has grown by leaps and bounds, and I love watching it. Their products continue to amaze and delight me. In addition to various forms of yarn, they also have fibers, clothes, accessories, kits, patterns, etc.

So, bound on over to their website to see all their cool stuff and learn more about this awesome company!

Adventure well; Live fully.
