Nachomama's Knits- Hand dyed yarn, customs and NEW instocks (see post 4)

I’m Nachomama. I knit and dye yarn, often with the help of my adorable children. I sometimes knit for hire as well. I try to keep environmental and ethical standards in mind in all my dealings. Our packaging is reusable and biodegradable. Our shipping labels are recycled. I try to carry ethically sourced bases; many are US made or organic. If these things are important to you as well, I hope you’ll consider supporting my efforts. I’d love to dye or knit up something just for you.

See post #4 for more examples of my work.

Instock yarns (more coming soon!)

Purewool "Olivette" ~218 yds $16

Cestari Traditional, Sugar Ice, self striping ~254 yds $12

Gaia Bulky $20 each
This super soft base is perfect for newborns or those with sensitive skin. I would definitely call it "heavy worsted" rather than bulky.

This colorway is subtle tonal blues, beautiful!

4 oz ~ 152 yds

Mountain Meadow Wool $21 each
This worsted base is soft, but stands up to toddler use. I'm proud to offer this environmentally friendly base! From their vegetable based cleansers to the small ranches they work with, the company is all about sustainability.

3.5 oz ~196 yds

Licorice Twist (1120, the light worsted)
This is the 1120, a light worsted. This base is really soft and cuddly. The thinness makes is a great choice for summer woolies.
a honking 6.9 oz $40 ppd

4 ply Merino,
This economical base is sourced from humanely treated sheep. I'd call it medium on both softness and pilling.
3.6 oz, $14 ppd

Subtract $4 from pricing for solid or semi solid. 2 oz solid or semi solid trim skeins also available. Ask me about scrappy sets, gradients and self striping! If you’re interested in a different base, message me. I can likely oblige. Also, I tend to have a few random, special yarns around, like sparkle or silk, if there is interest. If you aren't sure which base to pick, just ask. I've knit and used nearly all of them on my cloth diapered cutie, so I can help you choose something sturdy for your toddler or something snuggly for your newborn.

Prices do not include shipping. For Priority shipping, cost is $4 for 1 skein, $1 for each additional. For first class, $3, $1 for each additional. Message me for a quote on international shipping.

My turnaround time is 2-3 weeks for instock bases.

You can see more of my work on my blog, my Facebook page. My tester thread is here.

Please be sure to order enough yarn for your projects as dye lots can vary slightly. I cannot guarantee an exact color match on reordered skeins.
