This one hit me hard, guys! I was so sad to hear of this amazing woman's passing a couple of days ago. She is so iconic, so strong, and I love love love her music! You can't help anytime one of her songs comes on to sing along, get an attitude and dance! You all know I'm greatly inspired by music of all genres, and this is no exception.
In celebration of Aretha's life, career, and the inspiration she has brought through her music, we've named a new colorway "Respect."
It is very rare that have a colorway already dyed that doesn't have a name. But this one was so special. It is beautiful, fiery, and needed a strong name. The moment I heard about Aretha's passing I knew what the name needed to be instantly! Ding ding ding!! It was just waiting for me to catch up to what its name needed to be.
I do not have proper photos on all the yarn bases or color combo suggestions, they are coming soon!
Colors that match are: Violet Beauregarde, Sriracha, Little Darlin, Beauty School Dropout, Iris, and Bubbles
Thank you all so much!
I get a lot of requests daily for colorways on specific yarn bases to be restocked, and then to be able to notify you when they are restocked. In the past, I'd keep a hand written list and HOPE I got it right for you!
Now! With the new website, I added this feature to help you let me know what you'd like to see dyed AND when it is restocked, you will get an automatic notification that it's back!
You will see a purple link on the right side of the listing, if it's out of stock. It says, "Email Me When Back In Stock." Click on it to put in your email address.
The notifications are sent once per listing that you request! So you won't get a ton of emails, just once per item. If you do request restock notifications on multiple items and we happen to restock them on the same day, you will get 1 email for each item.
I hope this makes for a great experience for you! As always, let me know if there is anything more I can do to help you out!
