From the Designer:
Yelley is a knitter, crocheter, spinner, & maker in the San Francisco Bay Area, working to promote diversity and inclusiveness in the fiber arts world. Her goal is to create safer and more accessible spaces for marginalized folx (BIPOC, LGBTQ+, Neurodivergent, Disabled, Fat, all kinds of marginalized folx!) through representation, visibility, and community building events. She lives in Alameda, California, with her partner, two very spoiled dogs, and a ridiculously large stash of purple and rainbow yarn.
Yelley immediately knew the color palette and dyer she wanted to work with for this project. Eva makes some of the dreamiest purples and her Butter Sock base is SO SQUISHY, it’s one of Yelley’s favorite yarns to work with!
The inspiration for the Iolite Crystal Cowl came from Yelley experimenting with different stitch patterns and using different colors together to create depth and texture. One of the experiments worked out and had a crystalline structure to it, and the Iolite Crystal Cowl was born! Iolite crystal helps in recovering balance, and is recommended for those suffering from disorientation, lack of motivation, chronic disorganization, and distraction. It strengthens the resolve to take on responsibility and carry through, and provides self-assurance and endurance in adverse situations, something we all need after recent global events!
