In celebration of Thanksgiving (happy day to those who celebrate it!), Jimmy Beans Wool has released a special, limited edition line of yarns produced by some of the best dyers out there and inspired by the meal a lot of us are going to eat today.
Operation Turkey Trot is the name for the holiday collection, which features yarns in colorways covering a classic — and then some — holiday meal. There’s the gorgeous Cranberry Kale colorway of Dream in Color Smooshy, with luscious greens and reds; the pretty orange and brown Pumpkin Pie Shepard Sock from Lorna’s Laces; even a pretty fall palette in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light inspired by that frightful holiday dish, Turducken.
In all there are nine special yarns, as well as a special bar lotion from Bar Maids and a beaded bracelet kit from Nelkin Designs. All of those are included in the Feast Kit, which runs $254.10. There are also collections of the favorite leftovers, just desserts and sweet, savory and stuffing themes available, or you can buy individual skeins if you’d rather.
This is such a fun theme, and would be a perfect gift for someone with a sense of humor, because the collections (not the individual skeins) come packaged in foil roasting pans! You also get a project bag to stow some of that yarn in while you’re working. Who wants to buy me one?
