Featured Indie Yarn Dyer: Go Knit Yourself | KT and the Squid

This post contains affiliate links

Happy February! Welcome to the second installment of my Featured Indy Yarn Dyer Series. This month I’m featuring Go Knit Yourself.

Melanie Cheripka is the mastermind behind the brand. She started Go Knit Yourself because she wanted her love for knitting and color theory to provide a means of income for her family of 8. A women after my own heart! She specializes in sustainable fibers made with low impact dyes. Now, I know what you’re thinking but don’t worry. Melanie says, sustainable doesn’t have to be boring. Just take a quick look at some of her colorways and you’ll believe it! Her yarns are for fiber artists of a different breed and her colorways are bold and bright.

Now through the end of the month (Feb. 2017) you can use the code GOKNITYOURSQUID to get 15% off your purchase HERE.

At Go Knit Yourself you can find yarns for $25-$28. I get lost browsing the yarns but I really love the color bases Erythro, Maeve and Silver Fox.

Melanie’s skeins have a short “trace-back.” That means it starts at the rancher, goes to one of her reliable suppliers and straight to her. She has also spent countless hours researching low-impact acid dyes. No Heavy metals here! The only chemical she uses is citric acid. It actually costs her less which allows her to pass the savings onto us!


Melanie wants to help you to “go knit yourself” so she has been so kind to offer a month long coupon code for KT and the Squid readers! Now through the end of the month (Feb. 2017) you can use the code GOKNITYOURSQUID  to get 15% off your purchase HERE. She has also offered to giveaway a skein of yarn which I will post on Monday (So keep an eye out!).

Thanks so much Melanie for being this month’s featured indie dyer! Be sure to stop by her sites and say “Hi” for me!
