A luxurious hand lotion bar. Generous size, handmade, with the gently sweet scent of honey.
Tuft Woolens created this generous size of hand balm bar especially for Little Skein. It's formulated especially for knitters, with lanolin, to soothe and moisturize your best knitting tool: your hands, and keep them soft and supple all winter long.
The bar is made from minimally-processed beeswax, which means that it's not chemically bleached. You may see tiny brown specks in the balm, which is just naturally darker bits of wax or very miniscule bits of bee wings. This is normal, and part of the beauty of an all natural product that has no chemical additives.

I am delighted to introduce you to the wonderful makers who collaborated with me to create the Hundred Acre Wood kit.
Designer Helen Stewart of the Curious Handmade podcast created the centerpiece of the collection, the Hundred Acre Wood shawl. She’s known for her feminine and beautifully-wearable accessory designs that are soothing and relaxing to knit.
Hand-dyer Anne Podlesak of Wooly Wonka Fibers created and hand-dyed the scrumptious yarn palette in her studio in New Mexico. The gradient color set is a work of art, with underwashes of common colors and gently shifting hues from raisin-brown purple to forest green.
Artist Chamisa Kellogg created the original illustrations that became the fabric in the kit’s project bag, and which pepper the entire kit. Chamisa’s style evokes the very best of childhood: the dreamy sense that something wonderful is always right around the corner.
Also in the collection are treasures from some of my favorite makers:
The Nome Knitter | Honeycomb progress keeper
Tuft Woolens | Honeybee hand lotion & lip balm
Handmades by Olivia | hand-embroidered zipper pouch
Leslie Wind, jewelry artist | Kindred Spirits shawl pin
Perfect Paperie | Love of Honey bookmarks
Preserved maple leaves
and me, Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool. I'm the curator of the Hundred Acre Wood kit: I bring everything together and share ideas with each of the artists so the kit becomes a cohesive whole. I create the stitch markers, sew the project bags (with our team) and hand-pack each order.
We hope you love our creations!
