Irrepressibly happy. This delightful self-striping yarn perfectly brings to life Pippi's adventures.
I am delighted to partner with Two Sisters Yarn Company on this Pippi-inspired collection. Anne and Jolane have quite simply brought to life the delightfulness, whimsy, boldness, and curiosity of this lovely character.
Each Pippi-inspired colorway is dyed on the Big Sky Base, which is close to a light fingering weight, but oh so durable and squishy. It is 75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon and has 450 yards per 100 grams.
Pippi to the Rescue is a self-striping colorway with 4 to 5 rows each of:
- Carrot-colored hair
- Red pigtails
- Malin's pink undershirt
- Sea captain navy blue
- Mr. Nilsson's little green bed
- Blindman's buff cream pie
The Bold and Brave collection, inspired by the irrepressible Pippi Longstocking, is a mix of preorder and ready-to-ship items. If your order contains only ready-to-ship items, it will be on its way in 2 to 3 business days. Preorders ship in 3 to 4 weeks, and sooner if we can. If your order contains both ready-to-ship and preordered items, it will ship in one package when the preordered portion is ready.
Please feel free to be in touch with us at any time if you have questions about your order or when it will be ready to ship. We're delighted to help!
I am delighted to introduce you to the artists involved with the Bold and Brave kit and collection:
Knitwear designer and podcaster Megan Williams created the Fierce, Freckled Friend socks exclusively for our Bold and Brave kit. These beautiful toe-up knee socks are a tribute to the irrepressible Pippi and a reminder to add a little Pippi to your life – to always speak up, to be creative, and to be yourself and no one else.
Two Sisters Yarn Company created three beautiful colorways for this collection: two self-striping options and a speckled (or freckled!) yarn. Anne and Jolene's Big Sky Base has become one of my favorites; it's soft and light and creates a beautifully hard-wearing fabric. Their dyeing styles are perfectly whimsical and clever, just like Pippi.
Chamisa Kellogg is the talented artist who created the beautiful drawings that capture the spirit, joy and delight of Miss Pippilotta Longstocking and her Swedish world for the kit. Chamisa's drawings have become the Bold and Brave kit fabrics, laser-cut etchings on the sock gauge ruler, our "Follow Your Own Rules" greeting card and more.
Tuft Woolens created a sparkling fresh sock soap in a Pippi-mint fragrance for this kit, so you can have as much fun washing your socks as wearing them. I am a fan of Martha's soaps and wool washes and am delighted to partner with her again.
and me, Anne of Little Skein in the Big Wool. I'm the curator of the Bold and Brave 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!
