We are very excited to announce that Amy Lee, the creator of Canon Hand Dyes will be at Nitro Knitters On Saturday November 18th from 10-2.  This is a great time to meet local dyer Amy Lee and see different colors and lines from Canon Hand Dyes that we don't carry in the store.  There's always project ideas and samples to inspire you too!

* hat kits for quick holiday knits: half skein of contrast, full skein of yarn, fox fur pom pom for the top
* gradient cakes
* speckled yarns
* full skeins on 3 yak bases (yak merino fingering, yak silk single ply, yak silk dk)

New Yarn from Canon Hand Dyes

April 07, 2017

Amy Lee of Canon Hand Dyes recently debuted a new color palette inspired by Beatrix Potter characters.  The subtle tonality of each color is absolutely beautiful!  The palette is designed to complement the other colors, making it a perfect choice for multi-colored projects!

The William yarn base is a blend of Merino and Nylon with 460 yes, making it soft for shawls and scarves but plied well enough for socks.
