Made in America Yarns Giveaway!


Edited to Add: Made in America Yarns is in booth #210 right now at Stitches East! Beck will be there all weekend. If you are at Stitches, please stop by the Made in America Yarns booth and say hello from me. While you're there give the yarn a good squish. You won't be able to resist bringing some home with you!

Hi, Knitters,
I have a fantastic opportunity for you to win some homegrown yarn today. Last June at TNNA I was lucky enough to be introduced to Beck Gusler. Beck is the sister of the fabulous Laura Linneman of the Knit Girllls and part of a wonderful family filled with fiber artists so she has been well-versed in yarns all of her life. I had the opportunity to have Beck in one of my classes at SSK and to sit next to her at dinner last summer. She is so excited about her new career path, it just pours out of her. Beck recently landed a job at a really cool American-based yarn company located in Philadelphia called, Made in America Yarns. At TNNA Beck was working in the Made in America Yarns' booth and gave me the two sample balls you see in the photo above. I was interested in this American yarn company and really liked the yarns she gave me.




Here is a blurb straight from the website about the company and mill in Philadelphia:

At Made in America Yarns, all of our yarns are spun, twisted and dyed at our mill in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Our yarns are designed and manufactured at Huntingdon Yarn Mill in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia. Our mill has been in operation since 1940, and many of our employees are second- and third-generation workers. We are deeply rooted in our community and dedicated to keeping jobs in the USA.


Beck asked if I would be interested in reviewing and hosting a yarn giveaway on my blog. I jumped at the chance. I didn't know of this wonderful company before and there is a chance that you may not have heard of Made in America Yarns either. 

Beck sent me two regular-sized hanks of Made in America Yarns to enjoy and review. The first is this lofty, fluffy hank of American Lamb (shown in the photo above). Oh, to give this yarn a squish! You would be sold immediately. American Lamb is 100% wool and 146 yards in bulky weight. My hank is in the Delft Blue colorway. On a recommended US size 10 needle you get about 14 stitches for 4-inches in stockinette stitch. The yarn has a textured appearance due to the finer thread that is plied with the loftier ply of the wool. I love this style of yarn! It is super fun to knit and creates a great fabric. 

I will be casting on a hat with my hank of Delft Blue American Lamb. I'm not sure what pattern but possibly something like this, or this, or this, or most likely this (these are all free patterns!). I will be making a pom-pom with the smaller sample hanks I received at TNNA. It will be super cute and I'll keep you posted on my progress.



The other squishy, soft hank of yarn I was sent to review is this gorgeous bulky-weight cotton, called FloraFil. My hank is in the deep, rich Chocolate Lily colorway. I love it. You want to sink right in and stay awhile. This yarn is 97% cotton and 3% nylon (the plying thread is the nylon). This is a lofty and textured cotton that comes in 125 yard hanks. 


One thing you might be surprised about is the number of times I am asked to recommend a cotton yarn for people who are allergic or want an alternative to wool. I struggle coming up with great recommendations especially when asked about a heavy worsted or bulky weight cotton yarn. Well now my problem is solved. I LOVE this bulky weight cotton. There are so many things you could knit with this yarn, especially for babies. Many people want to knit in cotton for babies and I totally get that. FloraFil is so soft and wouldn't irritate a baby's skin at all. Plus it is machine wash safe, a big bonus for baby knitting, especially when knitting gifts for non-knitters.

Think about little hats, sweaters, washcloths, blankets, booties, toys, buntings..... it would all be beautiful and would work up incredibly fast on US size 10 needles at 14 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch. Adults could make great use of this yarn, too!


Today I am thrilled to be able to offer you a fantastic yarn giveaway thanks to Made in America Yarns and to Beck! Thank you for the chance.

I am going to randomly select two winners in a couple of days. Each winner will get one hank of Made in America Yarns, one cotton FloraFil and the other American Lamb wool in your color of choice (click here and here to see the colors). These are beautifully crafted American-made yarns. I can't wait for you to check out the site and to get some of this yarn in your hands and on your needles. Let's support this unique company together.

Please leave one comment and specify if you would like a hank of the cotton FloraFil or the wool American Lamb and which colorway you would like. Please leave an email address or your Ravelry ID so I can easily get in touch with you if you win. I will gather your mailing address and pass it on to Beck to mail out your yarn directly. Please be patient for your comment to appear, it takes some time, and please don't comment more than once.

Good luck and let the comments begin!
best, susie
p.s. I have found two things to be true: I love styling yarn for photos and I want to be a yarn stylist. Does this exist as a career-path? (I am sort of kidding but not.)

Oooh -- I live right here (OK, 5 miles outside Philadelphia) and did not know about this yarn. I am excited! American Lamb, color wine glass, would be my choice. Figners crossed. . . and it's so hard to knit that way.

I grew up in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia. I love to support local companies. I did not know of America Yarns until now. Many thanks to you and America Yarns for the giveaway. I would love a skein of American Lamb wool in the wine glass colorway.
Go Philly! Go Eagles! Go Flyers!

Being from Alaska...I would definitely choose the wool! The Delft color looks amazing. I'm sure I could pair that with a white and make a great snowflake hat!!!
This looks like a fun yarn to try out. I love that it is an American company!

Wow I love the Cotton Candy LE in the American Lamb is such a great and fun color! I love the idea of the first or last hat in that line. I have lots of grandkids I could knit a hat. I love it when yarns are made in American and love to support companies that do so. Thanks for the opportunity and have a great long weekend!

I would absolutely love to try the Aster colorway in the cotton. I make baby hats for the hospital, the softer, the better. All of them have been from your books & have brought big smiles from the staff. I always have some on hand for new additions to our family and keep updating them as they grow.

I'm all about the Grape Jelly in American Lamb Wool. I had already purchased from Made in America Yarn. It's so nice to know I was supporting Beck and didn't even know it! (I deleted my other comment and redid it with my Rav ID, not that you couldn't have figured that out ;)

I would love to try out the blue cornflower in the cotton base. I bet you could create a job styling yarn if such a one does not exist. You would be great.

Wow! The Made in America Yarns are gorgeous. I especially like the sheen of the cotton, but both the cotton and wool are lovely. My favorite colorway in the cotton is "Helenium Mardi Gras". The "Pumpkin Spice" wool colorway is what I'm in the mood for this fall season. My Ravelry ID is:
KimmyZ Thanks for introducing me to this fabulous made in USA yarn!

Since I'm not able to see their colors, something seems wrong with their website right now. I will take whatever looks the prettiest, something in pink or purple in the cotton.
Thanks
