Yarn Review: Crafty Housewife Yarns

Yarn Review of handspun art yarn - thick and think yarn - by Erin of Crafty Housewife Yarns. Now to create a one skein crochet pattern with this gorgeous yarn.

When I saw this gorgeous yarn come across my Instagram feed, I just knew I had to find an excuse to purchase it! Just from the photo I could tell that it had gorgeous color and texture. Then I noticed the sparkle, and I was sold!




I "met" Erin of Crafty Housewife Yarns in a mastermind group we're both part of for Fiber Artist. It has been so fun watching her handspun yarn business grow and see the amazing talent she has with fiber. She loves color and good wool, so we became fast friends quickly!



You can read all about her handspun yarns on here website - Crafty Housewife Yarns. She also sells spinning wheels and fiber for spinning your own fancy yarns. 

Something that I think is very important to mention is that the majority of the fibers in Crafty Housewife Yarn are sourced from local family farms and dyed locally as well.

This Christmas Cheer yarn was part of a charity fund raising event and is now sold out, but you can find all the gorgeous handspun art yarn on her shop.

  3. Hi Angela, I would make an elf hat with as long a point as the length would allow, with a sparkly, single color pompom on the tip. Make it for YOU and you can be everyone's favorite elf.
