Weaving Wishlist

Weaving Wishlist || Ugly Hank

Ugly Hank yarnI’ve talked about this a few times before, but I really love adding yarn that has been spun and/or dyed by hand to my weaves.  These yarns have a lot more texture and character.  If you’re looking for more yarns like this, I have another hand-spun/hand-dyed yarn shop to share with you today!

I have bought yarn from Ugly Hank a few times and every time I do I’m blown away at the colors and textures. Beth, the creative genius behind Ugly Hank, naturally dyes a lot of her yarns with ingredients such as tumeric, black beans, copper, madder root, and many more natural items.

Ugly Hank yarnThis family pack that I most recently purchased was dyed naturally and I really love the orange, yellow, light greens, and corals in it. It’s really a lovely set of yarn and I can’t wait to weave with it.  I do love bright colors, but natural colors have their own appeal with how they are almost muted and pastel.  It’s a nice palette to work with.

Circle Weave by The Weaving LoomFor those of you who remembers this circle weave I made, the pink/coral center yarn is from Ugly Hank and it’s one of my favorite weaves!

You can find the Ugly Hank shop here or follow along on Ugly Hank’s Instagram here (Beth has some really fun behind the scenes pictures!).

If you’re looking for more yarn options, here are some I’ve shared before:

Happy Weaving!

    Beth at Ugly Hank is a pleasure to deal with too. She clearly loves what she does, and I love that when you open your parcel it smells like beautiful lavender. Her yarn is what inspired me to spin!

      Yes, you’re so right! Beth is really nice and that is so cool that you started spinning!
