Piggy Yarns is born!

Hi everyone

After 4 years of people asking me if I sell my yarns, and me always replying "Not right now, but maybe someday", that someday has arrived!

On October 1st, 2017, my 44th birthday, Piggy Yarns was born on Etsy!  My first shop update consists of 18 different colour ways. Some are one of a kind, while some of them have 2 or 3 skeins available. There are a total of 35 skeins in all available, and I am already working on more of them for the next update, currently planned for October 15th.

Some of my skeins are done with food safe dyes, while others are done with the commercial acid dyes.  I was doing a special project for someone and needed a really good black and a really good grey, so I decided to dabble a bit in the acid dyes. I bought some dedicated equipment for dyeing, and had at it.  I will be doing a post in a few days on my Adventures in Acid Dyeing.

I hope the shop is successful, and expect to be putting in a lot of time over the next few weeks/months getting it fine tuned. But for now, please stop by and have a look!
