Lets start with some fun!
Darn Good Yarn isn’t your run-of-the-mill yarn. There are special stories of hard work, love and creativity wrapped into everything you find at Darn Good Yarn. From the artisan to the person who packs our orders, Darn Good Yarn is fueled by infusing Good into all parts of our business. From our warehouse and order fulfillment partnership with Schenectady ARC (a non-profit dedicated to providing employment for adults with developmental disabilities) to our employee benefit programs, our goal is to create a better world by caring and doing things the slightly harder way. In a world of short-cuts and cookie cutter experiences, we believe that when you slow down in order to build that this creates more sustainability and stronger communities.

Several Saori Studios have stores on Etsy.
Here you can search Saori warps and find a variety of size, color, material, length and width.
Note when buying pre-wound warps pay attention to the # of ends and length:
As a general rule when setting 5 ends per centimeter (epc)
150X6M is 30 cm wide 200X6M is 40 cm wide 300X6M is 60cm wide
6M is the length of the warp
Some warps come longer some shorter so check your math when ordering
It is an honor to be a part of the beginning generations of Saori weavers and teachers.
All around the world weavers are keeping their history and tradition alive.
While our roots are growing theirs are deep and in many places threatened.
Support for these communities may be one way to ensure our own legacy.
Among their products you can get beautiful natural dyed cotton yarn for weaving.
For five centuries, Mayan women have transmitted through weaving esoteric designs that encoded the Mayan vision of the world. In this manner, the work of weavers was essential for the survival of important elements of ancient culture.
Mayan Hands is a fair trade nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering Mayan women in their quest to bring their families out of extreme poverty as they continue to live within the culture they cherish. We believe that when provided economic opportunity and income over time, women can build sustainable futures for themselves, their families and communities.
