Fuzzbee Yarns

I just got a box full of amazing things from my friend Cassie. I met Cassie while serving in the Peace Corps, and she is one of the people that helped me to learn how to knit while living in Armenia. She came to Armenia already a skilled spinner and knitter, and she has continued to hone her skills and is now selling amazing hand spun and organically hand dyed yarn! It's all pretty amazing, and I can say this because I just got a box of her yarn! You can buy your own at the Fuzzbee Etsy shop, and check out her website fuzzbeeyarns.com to learn more about her spinning and dying process.

Here are some photos of the yarn I just received!

 Ok, one by one, because you know you want to know more!

I'm going to start designing a few things specifically for the subtle beauty of handspun. I'm really excited about this, because I've very rarely had the opportunity to knit with handspun yarn before, and have yet to design with it! Stay tuned!


  1. It takes real skill to spin yarn like that bulky yarn at the top. I love it! Good luck designing, I cannot wait to see your ideas.

  2. I'm so excited! I want to start, but I've decided I have to finish at least one of my WIPs before I'm allowed.

  3. The yarns are gorgeous, I am sure that you will design something really special. By the way, congrats on the Twist Collective design.
