"Spex" (Pre-Order) | Hand-Dyed Fingering Weight Yarn "Spex" (Pre-Order) | Hand-Dyed Fingering Weight Yarn "Spex" (Pre-Order) | Hand-Dyed Fingering Weight Yarn

Exclusively for the month of June, and only available as a pre-order*, this colorway helps support efforts of inclusion in the arts.

The raucous world of late 70's punk rock was an exercise in primal scream therapy. Whatever the noise that came out of you, it need only be a real and true represntation of your own experience. Poly Styrene of the band "X-Ray Spex" tore a hole in the genre by giving voice to the familiar struggles of adolescence, while offering a powerful push-back to racism, sexism, and our self-rightousness. Far ahead of her time, and far beyond convention, Poly and her bandmates laid a powerful foundation that resonates to this day.

For the month of June, we will donate 50% of the sales totals of this yarn to the Dana Thompson Memorial Fund of Awesome (dtmfa.org) in support of their efforts to provide scholarships for young women of color and trans youth to participate in the music and empowerment programs of Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls (RNRC4G).
