What To Do With Indie Dyed Yarn?

Indie dyed yarn is a great way to add unique color and texture to your projects.

If you have a wool-based yarn, use it to create sweaters, hats, scarves, and other cozy items. If you have a cotton-based yarn, use it to create shawls, blankets, and other lightweight garments.

The possibilities are endless!
