emPower People 2020 Purple DK Yarns

At Cheers To Ewe we support emPOWER People, "a craftivism project aimed at uniting crafters of all mediums to engage people across communities to spark conversation, engagement and action in the political process to uphold social justice and human rights."

We've curated a collection of purple yarns we offer in our shop, including both hand dyed yarns and commercially dyed yarns that are a bit more economical.  We've also included a wool-free option.  

If you don't see what you'd like in this grouping, please send us a note at info@cheerstoewe.com so we can help you find what you want!
