Little Squirrel Yarn

Little Squirrel Yarn was founded in 2021. We are a small indie-dyer team based in Loveland, CO. Sarah and Dylan love to dream up new color combinations and believe that there is room at the table for every color, whether they're bold and bright, rich and moody, or earthy and muted. We utilize a variety of methods and dye in small batches to produce exquisite colors. Our colorways include tonal, variegated, and speckled options. We strive to provide yarns and colors that shine independently, but can also be paired together for beautiful textures and palettes. 

Conscientious treatment of animals is very important to us, so we only use ethically-sourced yarn. All of our bases are carefully selected to be mulesing-free, high-quality, soft, and durable. We currently offer four bases: Oak Sock (superwash merino/nylon fingering weight), Walnut DK (superwash merino), Pecan Single-Ply (non-superwash organic merino fingering weight) and Beech Lace (suri silk blend).  

We like to bring a selection of each of our bases to our trunk shows. The Pecan Single-Ply and Beech Lace are primarily available in tonal colorways; the Oak Sock and Walnut DK are a mix of tonals, variegated, and speckled. We'll also bring sock sets and a few bundles of coordinating mini skeins. We will be in the Shoppe Saturday, August 3, 10 am-2 pm and August 4, 12 pm-4 pm.

Ladderback Jacquard Hat with Jennifer Miller of Theodora's Pearls

If you have trouble with stranded colorwork - it’s too tight, not flexible, catches on fingers or jewelry, or generally just doesn’t look good or feel comfortable, this is the class for you! Ladderback jacquard stranding, originally developed & used for machine knitting, is a version of double-knitting with only a one-stitch column. This technique can used in the round or flat! It’s particularly useful for motifs in which a single color is carried more than an inch, or when you need a stretchy, flexible garment such as a hat or cowl. This technique is easy to learn & apply to any stranded colorwork pattern! 

Students will learn this new skill while knitting the Love the Winter hat in this class.

Jennifer Miller is the artisan behind Theodora's Pearls, a local dyer from Longmont, Colorado, we adore at Lamb Shoppe!

Join Jennifer Miller on Sunday, August 11 from 3 to 5pm for the Ladderback Jacquard Hat class!
