  • Please…Open the taps to New Zealand. We would love access to your store. ALL THE WOOL

    • Cotton yarn is my favorite by far! I make dish cloths, that’s it! I’ve never seen a color that I didn’t love. Oh, and just to be sure I’m not missing out, I have sock yarn, for socks, and plain old acrylic for watch caps that I donate.

      • So hard to choose… Sylph on hot tap and Mohonk on cold tap

        • ROWAN chunky cashmere!
          I can’t get enough of it.

      • Sock yarn!!! Skinny skinny yardage in millions of colors of wonderful wool!!!

      • I have way too much Icelandic unspun that I really should do something with….

      • Anything Malibrogo!

    • A yarn spigot dispensing anything from La Bien Aimee would be a dream come true!

      • So hard to decide! A spigot of Spincycle would be a given and then can I have another? Anything with speckles!

    • Rowan Felted Tweed & Organic Studio Sock.

      • I’m dying to try the new atlas yarn!

        • Torn between de Rerum Gilliatt and Mohonk light. Depends on how far the taps are turned on.

      • Cotton, cotton and cotton

        • Single ply. Lovely soft single ply yarn would stream from my faucets. If I had yarn faucets that is.

    • Fellow Kiwi here – I stan this comment! Always gutted that I can’t buy all the lovely things I see in your shop.

    • My favorite is wool, therefore, send me LOPI please. Thank you

      • Oh my, so many but Spincycle would definitely be pouring out along with some woolly wool. Oh the many colors!

    • Open the spigots in Texas. Gorgeous cashmere DK in all the shades of beauty.

      • My spigot would flow with Rowan felted tweed because I never have been able to afford all the colors that I would need to knit the patterns I want.

    • Any yarn from the Neighborhood Fiber company….

    • Sock yarn, sock yarn, sock yarn. And just got into cotton for throws. And worsted for house socks!

      • Anything flowing from the tap would have me jumping for joy. Cotton, wool, cashmere, sock yarn, blends, alpaca… goodness! What’s not to love about ANY of them.

    • I’d have three spigots: one for alpaca, one for Rambouillet wool, and one for linen. And a top secret spigot for qiviut…

      • Love these spigots!

    • Sock yarn would be coming out of my tap. All kinds to suit all kinds of projects

    • Any and all as long as it’s wool

    • One spigot of fingering with a mohair and another spigot of DK weight as it knits up faster.

  • Barnyard Knits Colorway Amethyst —just LOVE the colors in the hand dyed yarn!

  • Where do you keep the sheep? Please keep the yarn flowing and send some organic worsted or any of your beautiful wool to me!!

    • Zauberball Crazy!!!

      • Yarn spigot-in a perfect world! Mine would flow with Nua Sport and Barnyard Knits!

        • I’m with Sandy

        • Bad Sheep Yarn always gets me with her moody forest beauties.

        • My first spigot would have cashmere flowing, the colors are always beautiful. The other spigot would have mohair/ silk blend. I love how it knits up into a luscious finished piece.

      • Euro flax mini skeins dripping out all the time in every color imaginable.

        • Sock yarn! In every color. So versatile. Socks, sweaters, scarves, shawls.

        • Bella Hand Dyed Yarn would come out of one spigot and Rowan Handknit Cotton from the other.

        • Variegated sock yarn!!

        • I agree Nancy. Mini skeins for me too!

  • It would be superwash wool in every colour of the rainbow to match the rainbows we see frequently in the Aloha State.

  • Organic worsted!

    • So hard to choose! A sampler selection of beautiful shades of linen would be wonderful, since I live in a rather warm climate.

  • Nua Sport! It is glorious to work with and so not itchy!!

  • Kauni, forever. The colors, the wooly wonder, I could knit it every day

  • My spigots almost do flow with Neighborhood Fibers worsted and chunky weight. Y’all’s next swag design should be a spigot flowing with yarn. Could be like a thing where you stitch it with oddments of actual yarn. (As if you creative geniuses needed ideas:)

  • Organic studio chunky!

  • You can open my faucets and have la bien aimee or organic studio dk flow.

  • Organic studio DK! Love the squooshy goodness!

    • I love your posts DG! Yarn spigots with any of your yarns would be welcome here but especially love Felted Tweed, Nua sport and Dyed in the Wool.

  • The hot water faucet would flow with Rowan felted tweed and the cold water faucet would flow with Louet Euroflax linen. The water bill would be crazy!

  • Neighborhood Fiber Sock! All of it! So so gorgeous!

  • Oh, what a dream it would be to open a spigot and have the yarn of my dreams…a wonderfully drapy fingering in vibrant colours, flow out! I would be knitting up lovely shawls whenever I wanted.

  • I’m a huge fan of De Rerum Gilliatt. So squishy, beautiful colour palette and not too expensive.

    • It’s SO GOOD for cable knitting!

  • all the sock yarns!

  • I’d love to have Rowan Felted Tweed flow from a spigot! But I could make do with just about any yarn flowing. . .

  • Yarn spigots, what a great idea! Oh, to relax in a tub of soft squishy yarn! All the yarns all the time…a dream come true!

  • I’d have Spincycle Dyed in the Wool flowing!

    • Rowan Felted Tweed from the kitchen faucet, Big Wool from the bathroom faucet, and Neighborhood Fiber Studio chunky from the others

    • Ooh yes I agree that would be lovely especially if it’s all of their beautiful colour ways because picking just one colour would be hard to do!!

  • Hue Loco at my house!

  • Zauberball cotton!!!!!

  • My spigot would flow with beautiful squishy sock yarns! I’ll try them all!

    • I’ve been reveling in Handknit Cotton – the intense colors and soft hand make me joyful.

  • Please participate in the 2021 and future Dutchess (Rhinebeck NY) Sheep and Wool Festivals along with your contributing designers!

  • Malabrigo Rios!

    • Any yarn is welcome to flow out of the spigots! Lately I’ve been getting hand dyed sock yarn, starting those holiday gifts of socks.

  • You all are too fun!! Organic and lots of color for me…..

    • I’m with you, Lisa!

  • It would be all the yarns and colorways I haven’t tried yet, so many.

  • Love your posts and love yarn! It keeps flowing into my house. I even have a whole room for my supplies and there’s lots of room left! I would love, love, love to take some of your gorgeous yarn off your hands!

  • Any variegated sock yarn

  • My spigots would flow with organic studio DK and sock yarn in every color!

  • I discovered silk, cotton, and linen last summer. Now I am hooked on summer knitting, not just wool.

    • Any yarn carried by MDK!

  • Hot and cold running Felted Tweed, please.

  • There aren’t many Yarns that I wouldn’t want to see in my stash.

  • Open a spigot with all the yarns I have not yet tried that would look great for all the projects I’ve not yet tried. That’s lots – I didn’t knit for 50 years and renewing my addiction was a covid project.

  • Spincycle spigots!

  • Organic studio DK looks glorious and I think it would flow beautifully out of my spigots.

  • I’m not picky, any yarn will do. I do love the colors and feel of Miss Babs Yowza.

  • Mohair!!

  • Cashmere!!

  • Lichen and Lace – can’t get enough!

  • It’s too hard for me to choose one favorite yarn! Right now I would love to have any yarn from Hedgehog Fibers flowing from my taps!

  • Maybe Lettlopi??!

  • Any type of good workhorse sock yarn, I do lots of projects but always come back to socks and it they hold up and need little mending I am sold!

  • Nua Sport ,a beautiful yarn to knit with and wool/silk fingering spigots would be amazing fun.

  • Any cotton yarn for my warm weather knitting

  • Yarn flowing from spiggots you as say!?! Yikes, there aren’t big-enough bins oe space in my apartment to store it. Bedroom has a wall of bins in it already!

  • Wait…a spigot can control the flow I want it all from the finest to the chunkiest! .

  • All of the yarn….all of the time! I tend to fall in love with what I’m knitting in the moment, so there isn’t a wrong answer to this question as far as I’m concerned!!!

  • Sock yarn! The squieshiest and springiest!

  • I’m swooning over that orange organic dk!

  • Ooh endless yarn coming from the turn of a faucet sounds wonderful! Although it would be fun to have something expensive I’ve never tried yet flow out, I think mine would be Berroco Vintage DK — soft, drapes well, machine washable, and comes in so many colors!

  • Organic studio sock!

  • If the taps were flowing it would be moving my handspun out the door. There is a lot of it!

  • I think I have fleece spigots in my house. That would explain why I have one full closet full of about 16 fleece’s worth of roving ready to be spun. (It’s possibly related to the three Shetland sheep in my backyard.) But I must confess to always grabbing the colorful hand-dyed braids lately. Much as I adore my sheep’s wool, it’s all brown and black and lately? I just want color.

  • Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Worsted – one giant skein has always been exactly enough for a baby gift without having to know what I’m making yet. They’ve recently started making the skeins smaller, but I’m still sold because the yarn is a delight to work with and there’s a color for everyone!

  • Anything with colour. Intarsia and colour work are my passion!

  • Mohonk in every color would be flowing out of my spigot like a huge rainbow.

  • Spincycle in all its glorious colours

  • Oh! Is it one of those high-flow spigots? Something nonsuperwash like luscious Cormo would be perfect!

  • Sock Yarn FTW!!!

  • Indie dyed sock yarn. It’s my go to souvenir yarn. I can always make something out of one skein (socks, shawlette, or a hat) or combine it with another skein or several to make a shawl, sweater or anything.

  • I would create a spigot wall like a hardware store display to have as many yarns as possible! Love Neighborhood Fiber Company!

  • Wow what a thought! Anything by Three Irish Girls!

  • Peaches ‘n Creme yarn from before they shut down and revamped or whatever!

  • The amazing color palette of Rowan Felted Tweed would be glorious out of the fountains.

    • Ooohhh any yarn please, especially Rowan felted tweed.

  • My spigots are open and flowing yarnbeauties. What an awesome prize! It doesn’t matter what kind it’s all soft and squishy and luscious.

  • All the sock yarns!

  • No one has mentioned the deep yearning for endless Noro yarn!!!! I can’t resist it’s siren song. I know it has its faults, but it’s all so so pretty. Every skein is desirable. An endless supply would be this knitters dream.

    • I feel exactly the same way!! Noro just makes my heart sing … and makes me want to keep knitting “just one more row” to see the colors changing.

  • ROwan Felted Tweed for sure.

  • I have a real weakness for single skeins of sock weight yarn, I love buying it even if it takes me forever to get around to using it for something. In fact any time I go someplace new I look for a LYS just to check out their sock yarn.

  • Nua Sport for sure!! Wonderful to work with and splices like nobody’s business!!!!

  • Zaureball Crazy, no doubt!

  • The vision of yarn flowing from my craft room bins fills me with joy as well as anxiety over what to knit first.

  • In my perfect yarn house the spigots would be flowing with Gleem lace and Mohonk light. The colors would just dazzle everyone!

  • I would like to upgrade my single spigot to a soda fountain type dispenser! There are so many things I haven’t tried. While a wine tasting type experience would be more respectable, I’m thinking having several yarns on tap is the way to go. It sounds like MDK headquarters is like those “new” soda machines at the theaters where you can mix and match all the flavors.

  • Bring it on!

  • it,s seeing all those fresh, new skeins of yarn and dreaming of all the possibilities they could become. all the wonderful projects finished, and being loved by someone.

  • Single ply merino…my Kryptonite

  • Free-flowing La Bien Aimee….. or Spincycle……..or………

  • Spylf would be flowing. It looks heavenly

  • Malabrigo. A different weight from every faucet too.

  • All colors of Malabrigo Rios! So beautiful!

  • neighborhood fibers!!!

  • Organic Studio Chunky!

  • Anything fingering weight and wool, that’s what I use the most. Cold water tap, superwash for socks (Zauerwool!). Hot water taps, everything else – and if I don’t shut it off tight it’ll drip lace weight….

  • Love the softness of Malabrigo yarns.

  • I would be delighted with a solid color of feltable wool. Delighted.

  • I’d be happy to see all shades of blue to come flowing out!

  • Hand dyed lichen and lace fingering, helix, felted tweed in jewel colors….

    • Freia yarn bombs!

  • Rowan Felted Tweed, or maybe J&S Jumper weight, even though it makes me sneeze when I knit it.

  • All the Lopi! (Which makes zero sense as I live in FL, but I love to knit with it)

  • Spincycle Dyed in the Wool! All those beautiful colors making each skein unique! Gorgeous!

  • What fun! La Bien Aimee or Neighborhood Fibres in gorgeous blues, ferociously fabulous fuschias or vibrant violets…..not to mention all the other stunning colours!

  • Whatever is flowing would make me happy

  • Plied. The color combinations are glorious.

  • I’d like to choose something fancy and amazing, but I just LOVE LOVE LOVE (and use a lot of) my local Briggs and Little Heritage, Regal, and Tuffy, also their Sport and Durasport… so from my taps I’d probably go with the Tuffy.

  • I would love ANY yarn that would flow from a faucet, well except maybe the furry/eyelash yarns that were so popular in the mid 2000’s (my stash has plenty of that).

  • Yarn spigots are definitely flowing here!

  • La Bien Aimee!

  • buckets of variegated DK skeins, zauberballs, knitted wit sock, old rusted chair … I can’t pick just one!

  • That would be sock yarn: Regia, Berrocco, Lion Brand and Zauberball as well as the indie hand dyed skeins I’ve picked up at Stitches West.

  • The yarn that seems to be flowing from the spigots at my house is Cascade Ecological Wool. What I’d prefer to be flowing from the spigots is anything with some silk or cashmere content. Or Neighborhood Fiber Co Studio Sock. (Instead of a spigot, maybe I should have one of those nozzles with buttons you sometimes see behind a bar…the kind where you push a button to change the flavor of soda that comes out. Only with yarn.)

  • orgainic worsted for me. Fingering will do just fine too, or maybe a little DK?

  • Some beautiful Autumn colors, burnt orange, greens and deep reds. My sister’s colors!

  • Rowan felted tweed please !!!

  • Blue of course! Oceans of blue.

  • May the faucets run with a Kaffe rainbow of Rowan felted tweed.

  • I’d love them all! But if I have to choose I’d say Barnyard Knits. I’d love to have a never ending supply of Kim’s yarns for making a never ending supply of knitty things!

  • A yarn spigot in my house would not discriminate on yarn any and are welcome. But I would love the Organic Studio DK 🙂

  • For me? All the non-superwash you can fit in a trailer.
    For me to knit for my little grand nephews? All the superwash (momma friendly) yarn you can fit in the second trailer!!

  • Everything in moderation, I say. I don’t want spigots of Rowan Felted Tweed and Zauberball Craxy to become DG’s all you can eat popcorn.

  • All the sock yarn!!

  • All kinds and sorts of fingering.

  • My spigots would also be wayback machines: Sheep Shop wool and Mission Falls cotton.

  • My current favorite…a blend of merino, yak and alpaca…great stitch definition and not too drapy!

  • Flowing out the spigots in my house is quilting fabrics and sock yarn but what I would absolutely love to add are: Rowan felted tweed and Spincycle dyed in the Wool any color variation would be loved and appreciated!

  • Bosa, by Little fox, a gorgeous blend of super wash merino, yak, and silk!

  • Hot spigot: Rowan handknit cotton; Cold spigot: Hedgehog fibers merino DK; Garden spigot: Zauberball Crazy!
    (I know I have more spigots around here…!)

  • Wool, wool, wool. All kinds, all weights, sometimes now and then a blend.

  • Love felted tweed, but really want the spigot to give me a bit of everything. After all I am apparently only going around once!

  • pink yarn, all shades, all fibers. pink, pink, pink!

  • I agree with the folks who say a different yarn from every spigot! One with Spincycle Dyed in the Wool, one with something plant-basednfor summer knitting, one with Barenaked Wools Breakfast Blend, and maybe one rotating tap. Gotta have variety!

  • I would insist my yarn spigots spilled out Caravan in the morning and Hektos in the afternoon. Lovely!

  • I’d like the yarn spigots to pour out whatever yarn I needed for my next project, whatever that project might be.

  • Oh….wouldn’t that be fun?! Sock, fingerings and DK weights of alpaca and wools, kids silk haze, and some chunky and super chunky, and on and on.

  • My 2-skein “grab bag” was delivered just yesterday from The Periwinkle Sheep. Hand dyed with care and so beautiful! I can’t wait to knit it up!

  • How can one decide on one? I would like all new to me yarn to flow like chocolate on a conveyer belt (I Love Lucy anyone), in which the yarn comes out so fast I am overwhelmed!

  • Something in Hektos – probably Alpin or Alcott! Love a silk-wool blend!

  • Tonals or semi-solids, I love the nuance-y colors, they give variety, but work with tons of different patterns.

  • Spigots pouring Silk/wool naturally dyed DK and fingering weight get my vote

  • Any and all Neighborhood Fibre Co bases of all colors!

  • Love it

  • I definitely have S.A.B.L.E. and now that I am retired, I am knitting every day and trying to put a small dent in my yarn stash. I am also avoiding any large yarn purchases, although recentl in order to participate in a Portuguese knit a long, I ordered the yarn from Portugal!

  • I have a fair amount of yarn. Ok, I confess to having an abundance of yarn. But every skein is special and beautiful and my job, now that I am retired and on a very low income, is to bring the beauty of each skein to life in a beautiful pattern. I would love to add some MDK yarn to the mix!

  • The yarn flowing from my spigots would be hand dyed tonal and lucious in all weights! The kind of yarn you just want to pet!!

  • Yarn from the tap, what an idyll! I’d take it however it comes – perhaps squishy cashmere from the shower head, a cotton blend from the kitchen faucet, and wooly DK from the bathroom one?

    • Mohonk of any kind

  • weekends are supposed to be for relaxing, instead I’m fretting on how I can pick the bested friend out of all my best friends 🙂 hmmm I think you need two yarns for your spigots. One hot and one cold. and while only a recent best friend — hot would run Organic Studio Chunky and cold would run with Freia Yarn Bombs. But I think I’d be calling the plumber a lot.

  • Rowan felted tweed

  • My yarn spigots would pour out Barrett Wool Company woolen spun yarn.

  • Picturing the spigots flowing with all sorts of color, a beautiful thing. I love surprises!

  • Linen, linen, linen. Euroflax of course, but also there are others…

  • My spigot flows fingering yarn. Why? I don’t know because I don’t tend to knit socks! I fall in love with a skein and can’t resist. If I buy a sweater quantity I am a happy girl because I do love knitting sweaters. I see a lot of scarves and wraps in my future.

  • Freía minikins in the picket fence color way.

  • Organic Studio DK in Lakeland to knit the Debut. But in the summer, the yarn spigots would also have roving, and linen. Really any yarn with some wool, but no Angora, which makes me sneeze.

  • How to choose?! My favorite thing about knitting is discovering new fibers, textures, and colors. I’d love to try Spincycle Dyed in the Wool or Nocture.

  • I might already be addicted to collecting yarn. I find it so beautiful!

  • Organic studio sock in all the colors!

  • I’d love to try SpinCycle or LaBien Aimee. But there are so many others I would love as well

  • Merino fingering. So many ideas.So much yarn. Where to start.

  • Turn on every color for Rowan felted tweed and other Rowan yarns. And no need for a yarn plumber

  • Anything for warm weather since I live in the eternal summer. As much as I would love to knit something fast & fun in super chunky wool, it could only be used as a rug here!

  • Seems like the only yarn flowing from my spigots these days would be anything DK weight. Fun post.

    • EuroFlax…gorgeous colors

  • Spin Cycle or La Bien Aimee. But there are so many others that I would love.

  • Organic Studio Chunk!

    • Oops, make that Organic Studio Chunky!

  • Whole Knit n Caboodle and Cake Yarn!

  • I would like a new breed of wool to flow from my faucet, every time I turn mine on.
    I’m into single wool breeds right now.

  • Any yarn from La Bien Aimee –

  • Love, Love, Love Barnyard Knits sock/fingering, Walk in the Woods, Shipwreck, MonarchMeadow, Lemongrass tea!!

  • Brooklyn Tweed from the bathroom, Malabrigo form the utility room, and Neighborhood Fiber Company from the kitchen!

  • Anything Malabrigo so soft!

  • Zauberball!

  • I love all merino!

  • What a dream! La bien Aimee, sock yarn and spincycle please.

  • Hmmmmm….choices , choices! I think one spigot of woolfolk, so soft and squishable! One faucet of malabrigos, so silky…..and one of neighborhood Fibre’s running in different weights! I love that yarn, use it all the time..Lol

  • At my house, in he kitchen hangs a sign that says, “Cooking makes me happy. Yarn makes me happier.”

  • I would have a soda fountain that spit out a variety of yarns depending on which spigot you picked. Some Zaurball here, a little Rowan Tweed there. You get the idea

  • Shetland wools

  • My upstairs is already flowing with yarn, I guess it would be ok to open the yarn faucet on my downstairs. I do really like the Neighborhood Yarns, now that I have met them!

  • All the yarns!!

  • Yarn Spigot? I have a delivery crew of my own. USPS, FedEX, UPS. They all bring me yarn. After spending two hours over the past two days crawling around behind the Knitting Book Bookcase, going through every tote, every bin, every basket to look for yarn for a KAL no more yarn needs to come here.

    Righto…………………..

    Ahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Isn’t the goal to have enough yarn to make an i-cord to reach the moon?

  • Tosh Merino Light. It’s my favorite for all the things!

  • Right now, lightweight, summery yarns for lightweight, summer shawls. My favorite is Zauberball Cotton. Beautiful colors and feel!

  • My spigot would flow with sport/DK weight yarns. That would be delightful to see!

  • A yarn faucet! What a lovely idea! Any malabrigo could flow out of mine!

  • My yarn spigots would flow with worsted leftovers – walnut-sized balls of goodness that lead to scrappy fun! Full-sized worsted skeins are welcome too, of course, but it’s so satisfying to use up every little bit!

  • Fingering weight for socks, socks, and more socks (aong with my well-worn Wanderlust MDK Field Guide).

  • John Arbon’s Knit By Numbers yarn — luscious colors and heavenly feel!

  • So hard to choose… Sylph on hot tap and Mohonk on cold tap

  • Euroflax linen in every color!

  • A spigot for Karrida Collins’ yarns or Bare Naked Wools would do me for life:)

  • Organic Studio Chunky, as I’m a beginner knitter! Although might that clog the pipes and spigot?! I say we take our chances! Thanks for askin!

  • Rowan Felted Tweed

  • ALL THE YARN! I have so many many loves❤️

  • Hit and cold running merino silk blends

  • I would love to have speckled yarn of any and all weights flowing from my spigot!

  • I love Lichen and Lace wool. It was my very first MDK purchase and I am almost finished with the sweater I am making with it. It is wonderfully soft and so pretty!! I even like the name of the color: Marsh Lily!!

  • Spigots in my house flow mohair to mix with sock yarn to make cozy winter socks. Delicious.

  • Barnyard Knits

  • I choose the brand new Atlas yarn to flow from my home’s spigots!

  • I can’t remembering meeting a yarn I didn’t like. I would love to be surprised about what flowed out!

  • I have one milk crate that is waiting to be filled with some lovely squishy surprise. Blankets – here I come!!!!!!!!

  • KDD & Co. Milarrochy Tweed. Lovely to work with, blooms beautifully after washing, and snuggly warm to wear.

  • Brown Sheep sock yarn. Oh how I love it….wait does this entry count if its not a yarn you carry?? Should I rethink this? Have I just guaranteed that I won’t win the yarn??? Arrrggghhhhhh…..

  • Pebble would be coming out my taps.

  • Sock yarn of all types would flow from my yarn spigots!

  • Anything with a tight twist and a little cashmere!

  • Cold faucet = worsted breed specific non-superwash wool for war sweaters and felting projects. Hot faucet – fingering weight wool or wool/linen blend for lighter weight sweaters, vests, hats, fingerless mitts and more.

  • Any wool yarn, in any color,

  • Yarn flowing from spigots: Wonderland, Miss Babs, Freia, Lichen and Lace, Double Sunday from Sandnes Garn, Onion (made from nettles)—I could go on endlessly…

  • Oh gosh, my yarn faucet would just be piped to the MDK warehouse. I want it all.

  • A collaboration with Moen might be in order for the new yarn-dispensing faucet! I’d love Euroflax Linen on tap…

  • Bring on the Louet Euroflax linen. I’ve called the plumber to install new spigots next to my knitting chair!

    • My hands (and neck) love cashmere!

  • Something soft and snuggly. Like the makings of a hug of a sweater.

  • A yarn spigot would spew out any fingering weight plant based yarn, preferably in exciting colours. Thanks for the smiles.

  • Studio Sock from Neighborhood Fiber Co.

  • Sock yarn. So. Much. Sock yarn!

  • I would like to see hot pink and cool aqua flowing from my spigot, shower, or garden hose.

  • I would need different yarns coming from each faucet! Spincycle. Zauberball Crazy. Neighborhood Fiber Rustic. All of the new colors from To The Max. And mohair… LOTS of mohair!

  • How do I choose, even in an imaginary game? I’ll take all the superwash merino of any brand in all the weights!

  • La biennale aimée de from my faucet please!!

  • Sweet Georgia fingering weight. Love how soft this yarn is for a shawl or scarf. Malabrigo is a close second, for their beautiful colors!

  • Manos del Uruguay Alegria. Or any of their yarns. Their colours are amazing and they’re a Fair Trade Organization that was started to support women so they can stay in their villages and by extension, the villages are supported too. Did I mention their amazing colours?

    • Also, anything from The Blue Brick. Her colourways are to die for.

  • Yarn!! All on full blast

  • Since I’m in the Hudson Valley, I think it would have to be Mohonk or Windham coming out of my yarn spigot.

  • Anything Malabrigo!

  • I’m not picky. I’d settle for any merino or cashmere blend!

  • Linen…yes it would have to be linen

  • It would be blue yarn. Obvs.

  • If wool were coming out of the spigots at my house it would be flooding, you think I was going to live forever!
    Like A painter you can never have to many colors!

  • I would love a turn-on-the-tap, unlimited supply of Neighborhood Fiber Company’s Rustic Fingering in all the colors. Love that stuff!

  • Oh my, what an impossible challenge, to choose just one? I’m with those who wished for different yarns to flow from every faucet, or the soda fountain ideas with different flavors (yarns). I thought of many, especially those whose price gives me pause, but even those prices are justifiable, given what goes into their creation. In fact, if I think about that, along with how much time I spend with it whilst knitting, they are worth the money at twice the price! Any of the yarns you feature would be a winning option!

  • Spincycle dyed in the wool. No doubt. Love that stuff.

  • Open up the taps to run Miss Babs Yarns and Rowan Felted Tweed, ahh, now that’s perfect.

  • Linen! And cotton! And all the beautiful colors of all the sock yarns!

  • As long as we’re dreaming, let’s go big. Turn on the cashmere!

  • Single skeins, primarily fingering weight but also sport and DK. They are the result of shopping for the emotional satisfaction of what could be. Luckily for me, my friends’ children are starting to have babies and I can start turning some of it into hats, mittens, and blankets.

  • Definitely Karida’s gorgeous Hampden colorway in any of her lovely organic yarns would flow freely from the taps of the house of my dreams! What else would??

  • Barrett Wool Woolens. Love the smell, the feel….

  • Tiny spigots for sock yarn

  • I think I’dlike to have organic NFC merino: DK because it’s 3 ply. I like 3 ply. Even thoigh I’ve yet to knit with NFC. I’ve been on a yarn diet for a ling time to use up stash. Wish it took less time and effort, just lime food diets. That one I’ll start after summer fruit is out of season. (Yes, I need to ban fruit for a bit on the diet that works for me.)

  • Oooh! I would love anything DK to flow out of the spigot!

  • Love, love, love DG’s posts. I love any and all fingering/sock yarn and would love it flowing from my faucet.

  • After the year I’ve had I need some fun stuff – Zauberball Crazy!

  • Alpaca, soft wonderful to the touch, and fabulous to spin especially mixed with angora. But actually I love the yarn I am knitting with at the moment!

  • Casbah,by fleece artist amazing blend of merino and cashmere, silk.
    Oh my hands tingle, my eyes adore the colourways and my heart is full
    Gimme CASBAH anytime

  • Definitely Spincycle Dyed in the Wool, with Miss Babs Killington coming out of the shower heads.

  • At my house, the right faucet would run jewel tones, the left with neutrals.

  • Organic Studio DK to make lots of comfy sweaters.

  • If I had a spigot that flowed yarn, I’d try out ALL the fibers! I am relatively new to the knittng world (3.5 years) and I’m on a budget so luxury fibers have been out of my reach. I want to experience colorways of Indie dyers too!

  • This is the easiest quiz ever! Karida’s Neighborhood Fiber DK in ALL THE COLORS❤️

  • I would be like a bar with a rack of beer spigots so I could have one spigot for each weight of yarn!

  • I would like to have a faucet for every weight of yarn!

  • I think my yarn spigot is attached directly to the mailbox. My husband brings in the mail and says “you got another sheep in a bag!”

    • Oh, this is the best 🙂

  • Organic studio. I am dying to try it.

  • I’d have forest green yarn coming out of the taps at all times. I’d be happy with any weight or natural fiber content as long as it was green.

  • Dream in Color Classy with Cashmere. It makes the softest hats and cowls.

  • When are you opening a second store/tap on the west coast, like in Washington state? All that lovely flow of color and softness!!!

  • Sock yarn for sure! I don’t think anyone can have too much sock yarn, fingering weight is so versatile.

  • Anything Neighborhood Fiber, Malabrigo, 3 Irish Girls, or Knitted Wit … YES!

  • Give me a spigot splash of Rowan Felted Tweed and another of Malabrigo Rios. I could definitely keep myself happy with those two on tap.

  • Wait, I DO have spigots, and last I checked, there IS MDK yarn coming from them, YAY for dreams!

  • An endlessly open spigot of Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride in every color. I would knit a home, a felted hut.

  • Woolly wool! Anything nonsuperwash like Helix and Felix from La Bien Aimee! And mohair and suri alpaca!!

  • Hello, DG, I felt the same way about eating Pizza after I had my first job at a pizza shop. I would love some of the Gleem Lace to fall into my basket. The colors are beautiful and would be great for an Aperture stole, especially in sunny Florida. The colors Blueberry is so rich and Pebble Beach so inviting to accompany anything in my wardrobe . Thanks for you lively comments, as I really enjoy them. I really like the one about the Motorcycle gang next door, I shared that one with my hubby and we both laughed as he was one of those guys in his youth.

  • Any merino, cashmere, silk blend!

  • Any non-superwash yarn, DK or worsted!

  • Yes indeed it would!

  • All the yarn! Who can choose — do you have a favorite child, two-legged or four-legged? LOL

  • My spigots are pouring out Rowan Felted Tweed, ALL the colors!

  • I have waaay too much yarn, too many projects to be waiting in line, etc. etc. etc. . . . but I NEED MORE! Open the taps!

  • Oh my….so many possibilities! I’ll have to say Organic Studio DK and Sock. Amazing colors!

  • Any and all of the Neighborhood Fiber Co bases!

  • Green merino!!

  • Mine would flow with all the blue-green shades of yarn – from palest aquamarine to the deepest darkest teals.

  • DEfinitely use the yarn for charity knitting – so many in need, so little time.

  • Lots and lots of non-superwash wool! I love semi-solid hand-dyes, Rowan yarns (how do they get their colors to always go well together?) especially Felted Tweed, and a few crunchy yarns like Brooklyn Tweed.

  • The first wool I ever knit. I can’t remember what it was, but knitting wool after knitting acrylic is a relevatory joy. By the way, when my sister rips out old sweaters to re-knit, she wets the wool and wraps it around the bathroom sink faucets to get the knits out. So I grew up in a house that did have yarn come out of faucets – sort of!

  • Anything from Lichen and Lace. Canadian yarn for a Canadian! I will get to Nashville someday, and will stand outside your warehouse. It will be a pilgrimage, like when I stood outside Paul McCartney’s house!

  • Oh yarn gods how do I love thee, let me count the ways
    Malebrigo, Manos, spin-cycle, Rowan and euroflax of every color and variety from neutral to bright and crazy, from fine to bulky and throw in some Lettlopi for extra cuddliness.

  • Malabrigo

  • Summerlite 4ply would Br my favorite! I’m A Cotton Girl, what more can I say!

  • Anything Neighborhood Fiber co.

  • I an so in love with Rowan Felted Tweed! It is just perfect for making the patterns of my favorite, Kaffe Fassett!

  • I love the randomly dyed skeins of sock yarn. I have some but I neeed more.

  • BFL fingering

  • The tonals and gradients are to die for from The Blue Brick!!! I have knit with some and I hoard as well! Hard to get hold of …

  • Ooh, a warehouse visit – what fun! “Come for the music, stay for the yarn”!!! My faucets would spill with Freia fingering and anything Hedgehog .

  • Fun! I’d have a blend of silk and wool in jewel tones flowing freely from my faucets!

  • something with natural dyed wool…so pretty

  • I.think my granddaughter just became ‘hooked’ on knitting so ANY yarn would be as exciting and welcome as cold water flowing on a hot summer day!

  • Something wooly with a touch of silk. . . I’m not picky.

  • I love yarn. All of it

  • My spigots would have a a slow and steady flow of cashmere!!!

  • The largest yarn battle on my lockdown-tidy shelves? Studio Donegal (I toured the workshop & stood in awe of the looms) vs Loki vs Spincycle. Determined to use what I had til y’all introduced Neighborhood chunky. I’m doomed…

  • Freia Shawl!!!

  • Any Freia yarn bomb!

  • Sock/fingering with a touch of cashmere!

  • I’m still pretty big on lettlopi. I have plans for more trinket mittens

  • I would love to try Sylph!

  • Do y’all have a flock of goats in addition to the sheep? Cashmere baby, everything cashmere!

  • Spincycle-all day every day!

  • The yarn spigots in my house would flow with all the Euroflax mini sets and Neighborhood Yarns sock.

  • We are having a bad drought here in California. I could do my part by letting yarn flow from my spigots, thereby saving water!

  • Well, ALL the yarns! I do love me some Dream in Color Smooshy with cashmere tho!

  • I am currently shopping for a new kitchen faucet so the yarn can flow out uninterrupted! And to think I originally had the idea that this would be a faucet for grabbing a drink of water. Silly, silly me!

  • fingering weight and DK, although the visual of a yarn spigot makes me feel a bit gaggy…
    Stay strong, Mr Strong!

  • Wow! Yarn spigot Spincycle Dyed in the Wool!

  • I would love yarn spigots flowing with every color of Jamieson&Smith for infinite fairisle knits❣️

  • Yarn spigots of sock yarn! That’s the ticket. Or homespun.

  • It’s been in the 90s here so Rowan Cotton would be dripping from my faucets, the instant hot water spigot might have Freia Yarn Bombs.

  • My spigots would flow with oh so many beautiful and squishy yarns! I love to try new patterns with lovely new yarns!

  • I’m a fingering weight junkie, so just about anything in that weight coming in a stream from the spigot would make me happy.

  • Sylph, organic dk, mohonk……

  • I definitely have organized chaos going here, and for this simple (and only)reason: I must hide it all from my husband!

    I have organized plastic tubs, bags under the bed, bags, in the corner, loose skeins on the bed (it’s a spare bedroom, so more flat surface). And then there’s the sun room where even more is in a basket next to a comfy chair.

    And who am I kidding? He knows I have a collecting problem, so he knows about what looks like a small Etsy shop in the closet (I’m not selling anything!). I only started knitting a little over a year ago and added weaving (to help use up the stash) more recently. Exquisite colors abound! But now i do need to sell off all that needlepoint stash that I collected for 15 years…..

  • Zauberball and Freia yarn bombs!

  • Rowan Felted Tweed! I have almost all the colors in my stash!

  • I’d love to wake up to Rowan Felted Tweed flowing from my faucet.

  • Sock yarn, for sure – the softer, the better!

  • Anything soft and cozy that would make a great blanket or scarf is what I would have come out of my spigot.

  • Wool, with lots of random color changes!

  • I live in MN so any kind of wool coming out of the faucets would be nice most of the year! But I definitely prefer superwash since my life goal is to bundle the entire state in wool. And despite this being the hottest summer I can remember deep down I know, winter is coming…

  • My yarn taps would flow with ANYTHING silk and or alpaca!

  • If I had yarn spigots I would need it to be sock yarn because adult children have a standing order for socks, as well as my son-in-law (he found the way to my heart). Cold would be solids for my sock-conservative son and hot would be anything-goes for my adventurous daughter and son-in-law. Let the water flow!

  • I like a mix of yarns but right now I’d like to try one of the new sock Neighborhood Fiber yarn by Jillian

  • Rowan Felted Tweed!!!

  • Please send ALL your Spincycle to me!

  • Nua Sport by Carol Feller

  • I understand! Waitresses in college. Free meal on every shift, but after week one, could barely eat toast. Can’t wait to see your new yarns.

  • I would need multiple spigots for all the different yarns to pour thru: one definitely for sock yarns, another for all the Neighborhood Fiber Co’s Organic Studio yarns, another for Rowan yarns.. I could go on and on!

  • Linen, linen, and more linen!

  • Uneek sock yarn. So many colors in each skein! Then I don’t have to choose just 1or 2 colors. Love it!

  • All the Spincycle!

  • Tahki Chelsea Silk. Sadly, it’s the discontinued yarns I long for…

  • So much yarn and I bet half of it is what I call souvenir yarn. If there is a local yarn shop, I will find it and that’s where I find my kind of souvenir. No silver spoons for me.

  • A constant flow of Spincycle would be glorious!

  • my yarn spigots would definitely spew silk and cashmere. But would that get old? I mean how many things can you actually make using those materials? Might need some good old fashioned wool. AHHH! I’m already wishing for more and I don’t even have a yarn spigot!

  • A hairy,wooly,thick and tweedy powerful stream of Aran or worsted with bits of weeds from Shetland would emanate from my dream spigot! Any color as long as it’s greenish!

  • The yarn coming out of my spigots would be Organic Studio DK in ANY color!!!!

  • Spigots! How amazing! Yarn would be eye catching , finger loving and project perfect!

  • Wool, wool, and more wool. I love me my wool!

  • Wow, so hard to say! I’m really partial to any hand dyed super wash merino. Fingering, DK, worsted, bulky in a rainbow of colors. I’d love that!

  • Organic Studio Worsted, would be a dream come true.

  • Any weight in the wonderful colors of fall, especially orange & gold.

  • I have some la bien Aimee and spincycle stashed away but if money was no object (I live in canada and after exchange, shipping, taxes, brokerage fees each skein is over $50!) I would have more.

  • Barnyard Knits yarn in blue colorways

  • I think John Arbon…all of their yarns are delicious.

  • Cashmere Silk, any colors.

  • All of the NFK Organic DKs. Flow on…

  • My spigot would flow freely with Fiberstory yarns!

  • I really need yarn for the spigots in my second bathroom! There is plenty of room in the unused walking shower for new yarn and UFOs.

  • Sock yarn would flow from my faucet, especially in the colors of fall.

  • Sock yarn in any shape or color or whatever

  • Atlas yarn!

  • It’s all good! But Organic Studio anything would so enjoyable.

  • Open the taps for me.

  • Merino would flow, unstoppable….

  • Organic studio all the yarns. I lust after them all but unable to afford.

  • I would have said linen yarn, but now I love fingering yarn, especially since I started stranded knitting! Yep, I’m swimming in fingering yarn!

  • The spigots would spout fingering weight all day, every day. I don’t think I’ve ever met one I didn’t like. All wool is good wool

  • If I had a yarn spigot it would be fingering weight yarn flowing from that spigot in all colors.

  • Anything from Miss Babs, Brooklyn Tweed, or Shibui!

  • I love it all, but especially the Organic Studio anything. I recently made the Wave of Change Jacket out of the chunky and the yarn is exquisite with super stitch definition. I would like to try the worsted, dk and sock! Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  • Rowan Felted Tweed

  • i’d have to have yarn spigots in every room in this fantasy house. rowan felted tweed in the library, noro silk garden in the conservatory, dream in color smooshy with cashmere in the bedroom, hempathy in the bath…

  • I would love silk or silk-blends, light weight and shimmery like gleam lace but in 50-50 silk-cotton for my warm climate, in as many colors as felted tweed, so one could use them together to get Kaffe-like effects or marl them together like spincycle. I don’t think this exists but if you find this, sign me up!

  • Oh, what a dream, fountain of Yarn flowing with spigots of every variety, brings a smile…

  • Oh my word, what a question! Hmmmm. Well, after going into a trance and zoning out for several minutes, I think I’d love De Rerum Gilliatt to flow from my spigot. Because who doesn’t love a yummy cabled-y something in gorgeous yarn?

  • Hand dyed fingering weight. But I’m moving back more towards solid classic yar.

  • Malabrigo!!!

  • In natural fibers in delicious shades of cream to espresso!

  • Flowing out of my spigot is a combination of colors by Jamieson & Smith.

  • Any and all yarn! No way to pick just one!

  • If I had yarn spigots, there would be magenta yarn flowing from them!

  • I love yarn and fiber. I don’t need to make anything or have a project in mind. It’s all about the color and feel. It calls to me like a raven craves shiny sparkles of jewelry. I must have it with all that color and it must surround me in my tiny office so I can bathe in the color while I weave and knit. It doesn’t matter what the material is linen, wool, yak, mohair, cotton or blends. It doesn’t matter what the diameter is lace, fingering, sport or chunky. It’s all wonderful and feeds my soul. It flows like water into projects, socks, scarves, vests, or hats to be given away to family, nurses, aides, and doctors in this time of COVID. It’s a gift of appreciation for those that care for us.

  • My Spigots are flowing now more than ever-as a nurse I need all the help I can get to counter burnout. Love that Organic Studio DK in that fabulous persimmon color.

  • A wide open waterfall (yarnfall?) of Malabrigo Ríos

  • No spigots at my house, but maybe a pipeline: bag after bag of “legacy” yarn and UFOs that I turn into finished projects for charities. The very nice things go to silent auctions and online shops that support good causes related to the original owners of the fiber. Everything that is machine washable and dryable goes into hats, mitts, sweaters/ponchos, and blankets for street medicine and similar organizations.

  • Organic Studio Sock, please! Just keep the spigot on!

  • Sylph, I like Sylph…no wait…Caravan, mmm Caravan…er…or (shuffling feet, where do I put my hands?) Nua… is really pretty…but Sylph is too….how about a kit? I like the Stranded Stripe Throw Bundle…and some Sylph…or Nua..TMI…I’d be happy with almost anything….No Polyester….Sorry…And thank you! Happy August

  • OMG, alllll the yarn… multiple spigots for Barrett Wool Co, La Bien Aimee, Clinton Hill Cashmere, Plucky, and De Rerum Natura.

  • Rowan felted tweed all day every day!

  • a spigot flowing Zauberballs of all colors

  • My yarn spigots would be pouring out a steady stream of yarn suitable to knit loads and loads of baby items for my first grandbaby who is scheduled to arrive this month!!!

  • A plethora of fingering weight yarn in pinks and purples, mostly, which sometime don’t match enough and therefore require new purchases. So painful, right?
    (though I do try, valiantly and at times succeed)

  • Love MDK. You start my morning off right every day. Thank you. My stash has encroached upon my husband’s office. Spigots watch out; you’re next.

  • I’m fickle; whatever yarn I’m working with is my favorite, so right now that would be Zauberball cotton. After that it’ll be Dyed in the Wool & Wilder because I have a plan! And I’m possibly going to stick to it, and not be distracted by a beautiful new pattern that I have ALMOST enough yarn for.

  • I laughed out loud at the “where do you keep your flock of sheep” line! I’m up for any type of yarn the MDK yarn gurus select. As long as I can knit with it, it’s all good.

  • All sock yarns!

  • Variegated wool sock yarn!

  • Spincycle!

  • cotton/silk yarns please…..and lots of color

    • Malabrigo Rios would be awesome flowing from my yarn spigot! So soft and versatile!

  • Sock yarn… I am not a fan of making socks I do when requested however sock yarn makes great sweaters and cardigans. The really expensive ones I pair with a cheaper yarn that plays nice with it and alternate stripes of solid cheaper with expensive tonal or variegated or otherwise painterly yarns.

  • I would love a surprise every time I turned on the tap! Most anything that’s grown and produced sustainably and is kind to the plants, animals and people that produce it. Natural and coloured. I can never decide! Spigots like a quality LYS!

  • I would have taps for fingering weight wool yarn, and taps for dk weight wool yarn.

  • Neighborhood organic studio DK–wonderful for sweaters!

  • Malabrigo Rios, and on Sundays some Stitch Together Sock!

  • I’ve been very tempted by Freia lately! I feel a Freia project coming on.

  • Indie dyed sock yarn Honey Girl Farm or expression fiber arts; however, everything and anything would most likely run from my spigot.

  • Any sock yarn would be in my spigot.

  • Let it flow Brooklyn Tweed!

    • Yum!!

  • As long as it as shades of fushia/rose or teal/jade…I say let it flow! Nua sport hatters tea party…Rowen tweed Barbara… heaven

  • I’m imagining a long white enameled farmhouse sink (appropriate) with multiple spigots (like in the basement laundry room at grandma’s house when we used to visit when I was a kid). One spigot for soft, fluffy wool, one for cotton, one for blends (wool/ alpaca, kid/ silk, suri/ silk, cashmere/ just about anything), the luxury spigot (pure mulberry silk, qiviut, Buffalo gold, vicuña), the sturdy wools for felting, mittens and outdoors in the nasty-cold-sleety weather hats and sweaters. I think I’m gonna need a bigger sink. Just as an aside, what types of post-its and crowbars will you be scattering, because I love a long, slow browse through an office supply store and a crowded (stuff, not people!) hardware or farm supply store almost as much as a yarn store/warehouse. (Ooh- fountain pens, grommets, a squirrel-proof mealworm feeder for the woodpeckers, ergonomic desk chairs with a cooling back panel and lumbar support, 487 shades of white paint!!!)

  • Anything from Rowan, but especially Felted Tweed! I’ve been revisiting my stash of books and getting inspired by fairisle again.

  • Ah, in my wildest dreams the spigots would flow with squishy, color drenched yarns like Neighborhood Fiber Co, Spincycle and the eagerly anticipated MDK Atlas!

  • Just wound Organic Studio DK -Charles Village into cakes, for the Debut Pullover. I feel like a concert pianist, stretching out my arms, cracking my entwined fingers, taking a deep breath, and picking up the needles. Let the music begin.

  • Silvery white yarn; something close to the color of the delicious Pacific Northwest water!

  • Anything by Kate Davies on hot and cold! Love her yarns and her patterns.

  • I do love me some Spincycle!

  • neighborhood sock and nua sport or dk.

  • Flowing from my Yarn spigot would be “Chasing Rabbits”, a luxe worsted/aran weight yarn that is just pure joy to knit with!

  • Zauberball!

  • Lettlopi yarn would be flowing from the yarn spigot for me. Love the colours and feel of the wool.

  • I would like a yarn bioswale of yarn in my front yard.

  • Mohonk for sure!

  • Oh my. My spigot would runneth over with worsted weight non-superwash merino, alpaca, Llama, cashmere, yak and everything else wool. All wool, all worsted weight, all the time. Heaven.

  • Hot and cold running Spincycle!

    • A fierce flaming red from the hot tap and an aqua-teal from the cold.

  • DG, I read all your articles! I love your writing! What ever you write, transforms me. Your articles make me laugh, think, visualize and put me on a positive note for the day. You are extremely talented. Popcorn + Skittles equals = Fruit Loops. Laugh out loud! Thank you, and just know I am out here, reading and enjoying your work. Keep it coming please.

  • Malabrigo Rios.

  • My husband already thinks there’s an open yarn spigot hidden somewhere in my work room! But if I really had one, it would dispense Mohonk, Nua Sport, and every possible sock yarn. What a dream!

  • How to choose? Right now, any Organic Studio or Barnyarrd sock.

  • Sock yarn in the kitchen and a bathtub overflowing with superwash dk.

  • Anything by Jill Draper Makes Stuff but particularly Mohonk and Windham,

  • Sylph because it looks so soft and silky!

  • I worked in a coffee shop for years. Funny thing is that you can’t smell the coffee after a while; even when it is brewing. Took a few years after leaving there that I could smell it again. I’m an ice cream freak– someone told me, years ago, that if you work at Baskin Robbins (31 flavors); you don’t ever want to eat ice cream again….unverified report. Thank you for all that you are– you are so inspiring!!!

  • Forgot to tell you about my yarn spigots–yes, multiples!!!

  • Anything malabrigo or extra fine Marino. Wouldn’t mind a side spigot for 000 double points coming out. Thx fir the best in all things knitting…Ebullinger

  • Magpie fibers swanky sock yarn

  • I am addicted to anything malabrigo right now!

  • New field guide?? No 18? Lichen and lace yarn for my first rib lace scarf from field guide Open. And I’m working on your log cabin field guide blanket using Cascade yarn. I’m a beginner and 71 years old!! Love your field guides.

  • Malabrigo Rios

    [slinks back to her introvert approved knitting spot on the sofa and dreams of the day she’ll feel worthy of all the yarn in all the colors]

  • Spigots: Spincycle & Feederbrook, please.

  • A surprise! Something wonderful and different each time I turned on the tap – at least a hat’s worth.

  • Neighborhood sock yarn

  • Anything from NFC could flow at my house!

  • I’m sure have yarn spigots all over my house, and if I don’t I’ll make sure to get some!

  • Yarn. Any yarn. I have lots of experimenting left to do in my life!

  • Oooh! Nua Sport first off as it’s such a joy to work with and wear. Then, of course, there’s Studio DK – enough to make a sweater – that I’d love to try.

  • Malabrigo Sock, of course!

  • I had a huge THING for Rowan Big Wool back in the day, and it always makes me think of my honeymoon, so…that.

  • I seem to have a weakness for Ella Rae Lace Merino fingering. The colors! The soft squishyness!

  • Tahki cotton in all the bright colors to make mitered square blankets for the rest of my days.

  • Yarn flowing from Neighborhood Fiber Co. Spigot would be so very hard to turn off. I love their colors!

  • I would like yarn to flow from my spigots but it has taken years to get my husband and son to wash their hands before touching food. They would love the excuse not to have to wash their hands. Yew!

  • That’s like asking which child (or pet or anything dear to you) is your favorite! I would welcome any yarn flowing from my spigots, but if I have to pick one – Malabrigo Rios it is.

  • One spigot for linen and those intriguing Japanese yarns made from fibers like stainless steel and paper and another spigot for all the animal fibers please.

  • I love fingering weight Barnyard Knits but have never tried a DK or Worsted weight. bring it on!

  • That’s such a hard question. At this minute, I’d say garthenor no 2. It’s so lofty and sheepy.

  • Anything with cashmere please!

  • I need the spigots to flow the other way. My stash got out of hand and I need to make room, because yarn acquisition – not just knitting – is my hobby.

  • There would be yarn spigots in EVERY room, so I could tour my yarn domain daily

  • Oh, my! Not having tried most of your yarns, I would be happy to have a spigot that pours out a different yarn each time I turn it on! What a surprise and delight that would be! 🙂
