A new word popped up on my radar a few weeks ago. Tradwife, which is a shortened word for traditional wife, is a woman who chooses to stay home and takes a traditional role in marriage. She believes she doesn't lose anything by choosing to stay home to support her family. The term tradwife is also used as a slam by some because civil rights activists fought to give women their rights - how dare they stay at home?! Incorrect. Those activists fought for women to have a choice to choose whatever job she wants.
My friend, Tabitha, was bullied recently for being a tradwife and she jokingly referred to herself as TRAD-ITHA online. The name stuck, and here are her favorite earthy colors all dyed up in a skein just for you.
Tabitha has a podcast called Murder Knits. She loves to talk knitting and true crime!

For best results, hand-knit items should be hand washed in tepid water and laid flat to dry. Superwash yarn CAN be washed in the machine on a gentle cycle (but not advised), then laid flat to dry. It is recommended to wash your skein before use. This will ensure any extra color will be rinsed out and prevent "bleeding".
Yarn dyeing is done at home in my back room and air-dried by God. We are a non-smoking home with a cat that roams around our back room and yard. He is afraid of the dyeing equipment and special care is taken so that he does not get onto the yarn - he's too old and arthritic to jump up on the table anyway.
Due to the nature of hand dyed yarns being unique, the skein you receive may vary slightly from the photo shown. If you have questions about the skein, please contact me and I will answer any questions you may have.
