My July Yarnbox came today. Last month, I wasn’t overjoyed with the yarn that arrived because the color was not at all my taste. This month, it is the style of yarn I’m not crazy about.
The yarns are from Darn Good Yarn and all of them are from recycled materials. Although I appreciate the mission of Darn Good Yarn, I’m not big on novelty style yarns. Darn Good Yarn has a mission of helping women in India and Nepal to earn a livable wage through yarn production. I think that this goal is fantastic and, if you like the style of yarn, this would be a great company to shop at.
The blue, recycled silk yarn is ok. It’s sort of soft but has a very heavy texture to it. It could make a funky hat. However, the ribbon yarn (made from pieces of saris) is just not my thing at all.
I think that Yarnbox has a great concept going, I’m just worried that whoever selects the yarn and I have very different tastes. So far none of the colors or textures have been something I would select for myself. I’m subscribed for one more month, but I have a feeling I’ll be cancelling after that.
