Washable Ewe
Where to Find: Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller

WashableEwe2The press kit for Washable Ewe, the newest addition to the Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller yarn line, has got to be the most creative press kit I've received in a long time!  Washable Ewe is a 100% super wash, worsted weight wool and the marketing executives sure did have fun with this one!  They placed a "laundry basket" inside of a cute little "laundry bag" and packed it full of goodies.  Along with one full-size skein of Washable Ewe, there are fourteen mini-balls, one of each of the vibrant shades Washable Ewe is available in.  To round out the laundry theme, clothes pins, a sample of Downy fabric softener and a couple of soak samples were cleverly included.  

WashableEwe4 Featuring the same kinds of bright, fashion-forward color shades that the Stitch Nation yarn line has become known for, this versatile yarn is ideal for fashion, baby, kids, accessories, and home d├ęcor projects. Washable Ewe is perfect for both knit and crochet projects, and it is guaranteed to be a long-lasting favorite! 

"I am really excited to introduce the new Washable Ewe 100% natural wool fiber yarn that is 100% machine washable!" said Debbie Stoller  "Now crafters can have the best of both worlds - a machine washable, easy-care yarn that is also completely natural fiber. I'm so happy with the colors, and all the stylish, free patterns we‘ve created that are available for both knitters and crocheters."

The Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller website features several free knit and crochet patterns for Washable Ewe, as well as the other thee yarns in the line - Bamboo Ewe, Alpaca Love, and Full o‘ Sheep. The collection was developed in partnership with Red Heart. All Stitch Nation yarns are medium weight and come in generous 85 - 100 gram balls, which retail for under $5 each.  Stitch Nation yarns are an affordable option in today's fiber world.  

WashableEwe5As mentioned, I really admire the creativity associated with this press kit.  As if it wasn't cute enough already, check out the label inside the "laundry bag."  It's a "Cheapy Tote" from EnviroTote and carries one of the best "made by" statements I've ever seen: "Made with American materials by American hands."

Sophie says if you're looking for a washable wool for all of those hats, mittens and doggy sweaters you're planning to make for Christmas gifts this year, look no further than Washable Ewe.  However, she's wondering why they have Kitten, Duckling, Dragonfly and Robin's Egg colorways, but no Puppy?
