Fair Trade Yarn Giveaway


Are you into yarn crafts like knitting crocheting or weaving? Over the next week you will have the chance to win luxurious fair trade yarns. 

One ball is a multicolored yarn made from banana fiber (right). It contains 80 yards of yarn. Banana fiber is a renewable resource. Not only is it eco friendly, it's vegan too. It is so soft you'd think it was silk. 

The other ball of multicolored yarn (left) is made from silk fibers left over from the sari making industry. It contains 90 yards of yarn. 

About the yarns 
They are handspun in the homes of women who live in severe poverty in India. Supporting these women allows them to provide for their family and afford to pay for an education for their children.

 You can check out all of the yarns in my shop. I am running an introductory sale while supplies. A new color is listed each day.

(Enter with the rafflecopter box below. Sometimes it takes a minute to load.)
