My second non-lawn-mowing-related job was working at a movie theater concession stand and oh lordy did I think I had hit the big time with that access to all-I-could-eat popcorn (this was literally a benefit that was offered at the time of my hiring: all-I-could-eat popcorn. Where do I sign?). 

Day one: work a little, eat popcorn a lot. Day two: same. Day three: same, minus ten percent. Day four: eh….where are we going for lunch? By the end of the first week, I never wanted to see popcorn again, even freshly armed with the what-seemed-like-insider-knowledge that Skittles + popcorn = tastes like Froot Loops (hey look, this Atlas Insider came with a recipe!).

I was thinking about this earlier this week when the MDK World Headquarters crew was unpacking boxes and boxes (there were a lot of boxes) of a new-to-MDK yarn for an upcoming Field Guide. It’s really beautiful and brought out some ooohs and ahhhs in me (but my lips are sealed!) and I thought for about ten minutes about how best to use it . . . and then by the end of unpacking the third box, all I could think was GET IT AWAY FROM ME! WHY ARE WE NOT DONE WITH THIS YET?! IF I HAVE TO TOUCH THIS FOR ONE MORE SECOND I WILL SURELY DIE. 

Now. Some people think I am a little exaggerate-y, but no, I really was going to die if I had to touch it one second longer. D-I-E, die.

I guess it happens to everyone; you occasionally get a little jaded about the thing you’re involved with every day, the thing that allllll the other people are insane with jealousy over. We occasionally get inquiries about MDK World Headquarters warehouse visits, and while we aren’t set up for them, it’s fun to imagine guiding visitors around the space, with people geeking out over the shelves of ordinary, well, office supplies. “I just mean . . . look at all these post-its!” [Faints.]

But the minute knitters find out I work here, there’s no telling them it’s just an ordinary shipping space. They get very excited and want to know allll about it (that’s when I usually get accusatory:  “Wait, you’re not reading me every week?”)—like do the water faucets pour out yarn and where do we keep the flock of sheep?

We’ve got a big warehouse-based workshop coming up this fall (Snippets subscribers are signing up for it already, so you really should subscribe!), and we’re already trying to figure out ways to make the warehouse look a little more warehouse-y; I think we’ve done too good of a job making it neat and organized. I suspect people want it to look like something out of a Hoarders episode. 

So excuse me now; I have to go knock over a few aisles of shelves and strew some crowbars around like I’ve been opening crates. People will be here soon.

    • Any and all as long as it’s wool

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

      • Love these spigots!

    • 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.

    • Any yarn from the Neighborhood Fiber company….

    • 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.

    • 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!

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

    • Rowan Felted Tweed & Organic Studio Sock.

      • Cotton, cotton and cotton

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

      • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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.

      • Anything Malibrogo!

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

        • 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.

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

        • I’m with Sandy

  • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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!

    • 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!!

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

    • 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.

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

  • Zaureball Crazy, no doubt!

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

  • 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.

  • Anything with a tight twist and a little cashmere!

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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! 🙂

  • Zauberball crazy

  • Organic Studio yarns from Neighborhood Yarn Co and Felted Wool from Rowan and a dribble of Uneek.

  • Organic Neighborhood Fiber yarns. It is not sole near me.

  • I would have fingering weight come out of the hot tap because it’s my favorite, &worsted out of the cold tap bc I make hats with it for unhoused persons in New London CT

  • Malabrigo. All the malabrigo.

  • Any wool noro yarn. Love their colors.

  • My spigot would flow with Organic Studio DK or Worsted…… bring on all the colors!

  • I think it would be Cormo. It has all the qualities – sturdy, squishy, sheepy and soft.

  • All the sock yarn. Since we’re here at MDK, let’s make it Nomade.

  • I would have to open the sink and the tub – silk, linen, wool with silk, cotton blends

  • They would be flowing with sock yarns in beautiful variegated colors! What a lovely daydream this is!

  • Organic studio DK…

  • Hektos!

  • Surprise me! Something different every time I turn it on.

  • My yarn spigots would flow with cheerful colors of lace and fingering weight yarns!

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  • yarn spigot with a new yarn everyday!

  • Nua Sport!! I love the colors and the drape and hand of this lovely yarn!

  • One spigot is not enough! I want to try Fiber Optic Yarns & Upnorth Yarns so bad (I’m on a “keep my marriage happy” yarn fast)! But after reading these posts I have to investigate these loves -> Rowan Felted Tweed, Nua Sport, and Spincycle wool!

  • All the lovely colors – wool, wool blends, skinny yarn to thick yarn – squishy to crunchy – I love yarn and fiber – yummmm!

  • Everything non-wool. Naturally dyed colors, beautiful!

  • It’s sooo hard to choose — I’d love the chance to rry any of your gorgeous yarns!

  • Fill the taps with Rowan felted tweed please!

  • Hot tap would run cotton!
    Cold tap runs super wash wool!

  • Rowan felted tweed and spincycle dyed in the wool!

  • Gloves for me and the fam, and neighbors

  • Love barnyard yarns and the Kaffe Fassett colors/projects. Love your newsletter; wish I could knit faster!!

  • Rowan felted tweed on hot and kid silk haze on cold. That way I can adjust the mix as needed.

  • In times past I would have responded with fingering weight the better to knit beautiful lacy shawls with. But now I have 3 beautiful, much loved grandchildren to knit for and I now would love worsted or dk yarns flowing from my faucets.

  • Balls of Shetland 4 ply appear on every floor in my house.

    • spincycle(hot) and la bien aimee(cold) flowing continuously

  • Those taps will be flowing with linen and silk!

  • Hard to say, but probably jade sapphire cashmere!

  • I love yarn…but a rustic dk, or any tweedy yarn is on my brain for some fall knitting. I toggle from baby hats and sweaters to adult, mostly me, sweater in cables or lace or the fun colorwork…and I throw in some socks and shawls.
    I have to find peeps to knit for because my kids are overwhelmed and my closet is overflowing.

  • Nua Sport. So easy to knit.

  • At my house, the yarn taps pour out all the fingering weight yarn. Lots of it.

  • That’s tough to choose, so I’m opting for multiple taps. One tap for Euroflax, and one for Lettlopi 🙂

  • Oooh that’s a tough question who’s going to turn off a yarn tap of squishy gold?? For me I’m going to say Hedgehog and Life In The Long Grass I just love knitting with these yarns the hanks are super easy to wind and the colours are just amazing.
    A North American yarn I would go with I will go with the Organic Studio in any weight I love the colours and the name of them!

  • I would have malabrigo pouring out of my spigots. All types and color combos of malabrigo.

  • Working in the yarn warehouse becomes the same thing as working in the library. All those wonderful new books but you have to get them ready to check out, and no, you don’t get to read them all first. Just get ’em out there. But, there’s always a favorite book you linger over opening, just send me Nua Sport! Phyllis

  • As long as it’s not brown and discolored — and there isn’t a boil advisory coming with it, it’s all good!

  • Definitely something color changing, like Spincycle or Freia!

    • Spincycle or freia would be fun to try out on my needles!! I second that previous comment.

  • Love your posts!

  • The yarn spigots in my house are magical, and change randomly. Just last month I saw Lite Lopi, Felted Tweed, Zauberball, and Jill Draper’s Mohunk. The colors change all the time!

  • Tamar Lustre by Blacker Yarns, a scrumptious tossed salad of rare British breeds.

  • Anything from Spincycle would follow from my tap. I am such a color whore.

  • Turn on both faucets with Neighborhood Fiber Company organic worsted. Turn off the faucets and turn both on again with La Bien Aimee.

  • Neighborhood Fiber organic studio dk for the debut pullover

  • I have more yarn than anyone knows what to do with, stored in my “yarn barn” as my husband calls it. It’s out of control yet I love seeing the colors everywhere. Love yarn so much!!! Thanks for your emails each day.

  • I would love the Organic Studio Sock yarn, uneek sock and Zauberball yarn. I just love all the yarns actually, and knitting up new projects.

  • My spigots are open.

  • I’ll take any wool or wool blend from the Plucky Knitter coming from my spigot, please!

  • Koigu fingering weight, solid or painter’s palette. Zauberball. Rowan Kidsilk H aze. Noro Silk Garden.

    • I forgot Freia!

  • Merino wool in jewel tones!!

  • My spigots would flow with dk or worsted weight hand dyed/tonal/speckled yarns in perfect quantities for the next project du jour!

  • The spigots at my house would be flowing with fingering yarn.

  • I love Malabrigo, and linen yarn.

  • All the Malabrigo.

  • Yarn spigots! A great gift idea! I would stock mine with sock yarn of any kind…

  • Oh, my yarn spigot would dispense anything from Rebecca at Wild West Dye. It’s ultra soft, squishy, knits up beautifully, comes in stellar colorways, and I keep coming back for more!

  • Rowan felted tweed and Gleem lace!

  • All the natural fiber yarns! Be it silk, bamboo, wool, flax, or a combo that includes camel, let’s make the spigot flow until the whole house, yard and neighborhood is filled with lots of luscious yarns!

  • My yarn spigots would pour forth yarns of natural fibers—cotton for spring and summer, wool and alpaca in the fall and winter. Linen and flax year round.

  • Thanks to Ingrid Klove for the hot/ cold tap idea! Hot tap – Madelinetosh vintage. Cold tap – manos del uruguay alegria.

  • Any or all types of yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners

  • I wish that when I turned on a spigot in my house a beautiful skein of yarn would come out before the water. If another appeared I would think I was extremely lucky and then if a third came I would have to say “Hot Damn I’m so lucky”!!!!! So Please I need a lift and this would be fantastic!!

  • A deep teal or a beautiful dark red in pretty much any smooshy yarn would be just fine!

  • Rowan Kidsilk Haze

  • The yarn spigot would be flowing skeins and skeins andskeinsandskeins of Malabrigo Rios, even though I live in hot sunny Florida. Yummy yum yum

  • Spincycyle yarns for me. Love all of the colors!

  • Rowan Felted Tweed please! Love the thought of a yarn spigot coming from my stash closet!

  • Something blue-ish. And not too fuzzy.

  • Any kind of fingerling or sock yarn is my choice if I had a spigot. My husband would not be happy though.

  • Anything Rowan !

  • Wool of many colors since I love colors LOL

  • Would love to touch Organic Studio DK.

  • Oh, I think yarn spigots flowing with Freia Minikins would be dreamy!

  • Wow, it depends on the day… Maybe Mohonk or something from Neighborhood Fiber Co. or Helix or….

  • Me: If we had a magic house and yarn came out of the spigots, what kind of yarn would it be?
    My son: What’s a spigot?
    Me: A faucet.
    My son: Cashmere? I’ve heard that’s a thing.

  • Nua Sport in all colors would be flowing from my spigots.

  • My yarn spigot would be spewing DK yarn in all manner of hues with lots of shiny, silky stuff mixed in the wool!

  • La Bien Aimee is fabulous!

  • Rowans Felted Tweed would be flowing from my spigots. I can’t get enough of the colors, the feel, the fun mixing and getting crazy with design. Love, love, love.

  • The yarn would be wool (non superwash) with worsted weight coming from the hot side and DK coming from the cold side. Colors would vary depending upon the mood.

  • Right now I’m all about colorwork. So give me all the Jameson and Smith. All the colors!

  • Crazy colors spewing out till I scream for some calming neutrals.

  • I would love a flowing faucet of whichever yarn is recommended for whatever pattern strikes my fancy on any given day.

  • I’m pretty sure Rowan felted tweed would do the trick

  • How can you single out one yarn?? I just know it is blue

  • Yarn spigots. Hmmm. I am trying to decide but I think I am fickle and would want to have different yarn for the new WIP that push what I have on my needles now it UFO status. I just love yarn. Perhaps I should come help unpack boxes. I do not think I could ever get tired of it.

  • My yarn spigots would flow with color, wonderful rich warm color!

  • Sock yarn. I could knit (colorful) socks for an army. My Father-in-law wears black socks. That’s what I’m knitting now. Plain. Black. Socks.

  • Homespun, so much texture or failing that any yarn from Quince a made in Maine yarn.

  • Anything Noro and all things Rowan would flow freely from the tap.

  • Spigots of Malabrigo Rios ❤

  • Oh boy, what a thought. I can’t abide plant fibers, really. Splitty! My yarn spigots would spew qiviut, yak, cashmere, silk, merino, mohair and angora. I’d happily die drowning.

  • Alpaca out of the hot water faucet and bamboo out of the cold water faucet!

  • Magpie Fibers Swanky DK

  • 100purewool merino worsted 3-ply

  • Spigots of sock yarn please!

  • For sure, it would be organic studio worsted in ALL the colors!

  • Well I just found out about yak down,so.

  • Zauerball yarns

  • Oh, if there yarn spigots at my house, there would be puddles of yarn EVERYWHERE!!!

  • The yarn flowing from my spigot would be some hand spun from the Isle of Skye.

  • During the weekdays, the spigots would flow with Nua Sport by Carol Feller in the evenings, and in the morning would change to Mohonk, followed in the afternoon with La Bien Aimee. However on the weekends, the spigots would alternate between Brooklyn Tweed Shelter and Neighborhood Fiber Co. Organic Studio Worsted. ♥️ One can dream!

  • Never-ending spigot of Malabrigo, from Sock to Rios to to to. All of it. I’m sorry, I adore it.

  • Spincycle Dyed in the Wool

  • Sigh. Just open the spigot. I would gladly roll in the stuff.

  • The yarn that would be flowing in my house is Fyberspates Gleem Lace in Burnished. I’m finally making the Mood Cardigan, and I love the golden colour! Knitting with two strands is worth it because I see two shades of gold at times.

    If I had two taps, the second would flow with Hand Maiden Flyss (65% silk,35% linen) inTulip, a beautiful lavender shade I’ve never seen before.

    It’s a long weekend here, so happy Simcoe Day to all!

  • I too am a big fan of sock yarn I’d love to overflow the bathtub with it!

  • Something that feels like home. Soft and special but holds up to wear.

  • For me, right now, it would be linen. 100% linen; linen + wool; linen +cotton; chainette structure; single ply; fingerling; dk. Not to mention some skeins in the same dye lot that I’m about to run out of…. Right out of the spigot, please.

  • Soft fingering weight yarns in lots of colors.

  • All of them! Starting with Rowan Felted Tweed, Neighborhood Fiber Co, Zauberball, Spincycle…

  • Red Yarn, all shades, bulky and soft!! So pleasant to think about….

  • I’ve got more Plucky Knitter yarns than anything else in my stash but there are so many other indie dyers I want more of and several that I’ve only seen online but am dying to try. Plus I live in a very warm climate so really want to get more cotton and linen and blends with them.

  • If I had yarn spigots, it would most likely be some sort of cat fur yarn, since that’s what my house is full of already! Though I would love if it were sock yarns!

  • My yarn spigots would pour out Organic studio Chunky so I could make a scarf out of field guide 18 and organic studio sock so I could try knitting some lace!

  • Just discovered Oink Mystic. The softest merino ever!

  • I’d love cashmeres in wonderful colors

  • Soft natural fibers in wonderful colors, but not angora

  • I want worsted wool running so that I can knit more cabled sweaters.

  • Any of Rowan.

  • It would have to be Lettlopi 🙂

  • Handspun would be pouring out all the taps – spinning kept me sane through lockdown after lockdown.

  • Any non superwash fingering wool will make my heart sing!

  • A cashmere yarn would flow nicely; many colors randomly flowing. Terrific thought, thank you!

  • All taps in my house would flow with either Jade Sapphire cashmere or La Bien Aimee.

  • I’m not too particular as long as there is yarn flowing! wool, cashmere, alpaca, sock, cotton…

  • Zauberball?

  • Freia yarn for sure. I love the color changes.

  • This is a perfect question for me right now. Ordinarily I would struggle to come up with an answer, But, I just started the hat in the Refresh Field Guide using Nua Sport yarn and am so in love with this yarn that the answer to your question
    is NUA SPORT!!. I keep thinking as I knit round after round “this yarn is so soft and lovely to work with; I have to get more!”

  • Malabrigo Rios for sure!

  • Organic studio sock, please! Or mohonk! Love them all. Thanks for the giveaway (and I hope I win).

  • Mohair. Anything with mohair I’m obsessed lately.

  • Yarn spigot surprise me, I have a lot of babies to knit for

  • All The Yarns — I want to see an ever changing spigot of colorful yarns! (Is that too greedy? I think it would be pretty).

  • Organic Studio sock yarn…you had me at “organic” and the colors of the hand-dyed sock yarn blows me away!

  • Lol! Like any knitter can choose just one…or two…or three even!

    But let’s see….when it’s on a trickle, I think it would be the Jamiesons flowing, maybe Harrisville Designs… then as you turn it up it would transition through some Rowan dk weights…to a sport weight-maybe Neighborhood Fibers -and finally worsted weight at full blast…Shepherds Wool, I think…but there are so many to choose from!!!

    In recent years I haven’t done much with lace weight (which would really start the trickle, and I do have a stash!). I’m not such a fan of the superchunky yarns, although they can make for quick works!
    Laura

  • My spigots would flow in all the beautiful colors of Dream in Color Classy.

  • My current favorite is Malabrigo

  • The beauty of the in-home yarn spigots would be the magic – whatever yarn I need at the moment is the yarn that would flow freely! Even if I didn’t know I needed it, it would magically appear and its beauty and purpose would be understood.

  • Any kind of sock yarn!

  • Sylph and Spincycle Dyed in the Wool

  • I’m moving back to one color sock yarns with a bit of shading.

  • Oh my spigots are flowing all the hand dyed fingering weight yarn!

  • Oooh oooh… merino is my jam and makes me so very happy. Thank
    You

  • This is just not even a fair question. I think I would like all the yarns, please? Wool, cotton, alpaca, silk, blends? Yes please! Lace, fingering, DK, sport, worsted, bulky, super bulky? Yes please! I do not discriminate.

  • Squish DK from Spun Right Round in every colorway

  • Sadly, even in my imaginative life I can’t forget the water bill … so mine would pour Wool of the Andes.

  • any yarn from Manos del Uruguay.

  • Since I am awaiting a visit from the plumber, you might as well know, yarn is oozing out of the valve and pooling around the pipe.

  • hmmmmm. I am literally in the middle of building a new house here in FL. i wonder if it’s not too late to ask the builder to add a yarn spigot. It can’t hurt to ask!

  • My yarn spigot would flow with Malabrigo yarns. Tub faucets: Rasta. Shower faucet: Lace. Kitchen faucet: Chunky. You see the pattern.

  • all the lovely naturally dyed yarn from Europe and the UK..then maybe I’d have enough for a large-scale project!

  • BFL!

  • Fingering yarn by the oodles. For making shawls, all kinds, everyday, lace, parallelogram, etc.

  • If yarn flowed from spigots in our house, the cats would be very entertained. One of them likes to play with the water as it is!

  • A faucet pouring out merino would be so lovely!

  • Ooh, yarn spigots! We’re just coming out of the mid-atlantic swamp times here in North VA, so I would say some nice cotton or linen blends, maybe even some that have nice variegated colorways, since I feel that’s less common for those yarns!

  • Noro silk garden sock

  • Organic Studios DK and Euroflax Linen. Lovely sock yarns that I can’t stop knitting into hats and shawls. May your faucets runneth over!

  • Linen-silk blends. Lighter than worsted weight, please (as working with larger yarn makes my hands hurt). Seasonless wearing, lovely for clothing and warm-season wraps.

    Wool fingering/sport for winter things.

  • Rowan felted tweed! Love it.

  • My yarn spigot would flow with good, ordinary, small-carbon-footprint wool. If you turn the tap on wide open it would splash out worsted weight; if you slow it to a trickle you’d get lace weight.

  • I don’t think my yarn spigots would be just a single brand but it would definitely overflow with hand-dyed fingering weight yarn!!!

  • Yarn on tap? And I have to choose one? There are too many beautiful yarns to choose just one! Malabrigo, Mad Tosh and NFC are contenders though.

  • Hand-dyed with long stretches of multiple colors in unexpected combinations. Smaller than worsted. In wool that feels like wool.

  • All super-bulky spigots at my house. Fast and warm!

  • On hot tap anything from Magpie Fibers would flow with abandon. Cold tap would run with Brooklyn Tweed Peerie… but when combined, Hedgehog Fibers Merino Aran.

    (I realize this plumbing arrangement is nonsensical)

    • Two taps with rivers of yarn overflowing the sink: one of Louet Euroflax, one of Cascade 220.

  • Malabrigo yarn, any weight! I love the feel of their yarn, and the colors….oh my!

  • Wow, after reading all the comments I definitely need to try Rowan Felted Tweed. However, until I do and maybe change my favorite, at this time I am particularly fond of Shibui Silk Cloud.

  • Ooh, a yarn spigot that dispenses mohair/silk blends would be divine…but huh, maybe that’s why there’s already so much of that around here already!

  • Spincycle anything

  • Organic Studio Worsted or indeed any #4-Medium-Worsted weight yarn suitable for hats, scarves, shawls/wraps, etc. And occasionally cotton for dish or wash cloths.

  • Wow! I could go for hot and cold running Spincycle Dyed in the Wool!

  • No problem. Three spigots. Purple. Grape. Rose. All different weights. I could knit my whole life with these. I mean LIFE, like sweaters, coats, hats, pillow shams, baskets, blankets, window and toilet seat coverings, fences… well. Thank you for listening. I’m going to go lie down for awhile now. Heart rate up, you know.

  • What flows through my yarn spigots at home, more often than not, is hand dyed sock yarn. I love it so much!

  • Cashmere!

  • wool, wool, wool

  • On my goodness–I don’t know how I could choose just one, but my yarn faucet would definitely be dispensing fingering weight/sock yarn! It would tend towards blues, greens, purples, and grays, and would include a nice mix of solids, kettle dyed, and self striping. A girl can dream, right?

  • Barnyard Knits! I became acquainted with their yarn at Vogue Knitting Live in New York and love the colorways. They are only 20 minutes down the road from me. I really wish they had a retail outlet so I could go and buy.

  • Rustic, non-super wash, hand dyed colors inspired by nature…that’s my jam, that’s my spigots!

  • Happy to get ideas for great yarn from the comments. I guess if I have to choose, I’d like colorful sock yarn – I have some socks made from Regia in Kaffe Fasset’s colorway that I love.

  • The yarn spigots in my dream house would flow hand dyed woolly wool…Jill Draper or Julie Asselin would be just the thing!

  • I love the colours in the Organic Studio Sock collection. A win just might inspire me to try my hand at making a pair of socks!

  • That would be a direct pipe from Handmaiden Yarns and Fleece Artist in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia!

    • I’m one of the “open the tap and just let the yarny goodness flow” campers.

  • Merino DK

  • Sweater yardage of dk (because I am fully loaded with single color singles of fingering)

  • Do you even have to ask?! Yes, I have many yarn spigots, including much Lopi, Brooklyn Tweed, Neighborhood Fiber Co, Miss Babs…the list is lovely but long. I refer to it as my retirement dreams or “if I win the lottery then I can just knit all the time and really put my stash to good use.”

  • Hard to choose. Right now I’m knitting with Rowan Tweed and am loving it. But I also love the colors of Malabrigo yarns. So many yarns 🙂 Prefer wools to cottons.

  • i loved the idea of different yarns flowing from each hot and cold spigot – I just counted 16 in our house! But I won’t be greedy – will be happy with one dedicated yarn source – but a different yarn each day would be a welcome surprise! It could start with Bien Amie – haven’t tried it yet!

  • Anything DK and under, occasional worsted,

  • I love all kinds of yarn, but my go to is fingering weight for socks and light cowls/shawls. I also love all of the hand dyed yarn with the great color combinations.

  • iId love a sinkful of Zauberballs!
    Thanks for the daily inspiration and this drawing.

  • Lopi, Lopi, Lopi would gush from the spigot!

  • Anything for fingering or sport weight sweaters

  • Beautiful, warm, cozy sock yarn. Solid colors from cold tap and variegated colors from hot tap! We have six bathrooms here, surely one of them could be yarny converted!

  • I have a veritable vat of Spincycle Dyed in the wool ready to be tapped for the perfect projects!

  • Madeleine Tosh DK! 1000% So many colours and makes the best garments you really want to wear.

  • Anything with cashmere in those boxes?!

  • Any Sock Yarn flowing out of the faucet would be wonderful for me. So many options: Socks, shawls, sweaters, held single, double, triple…..

  • Cashmere. Any size. Any color. 100%. No blends. It’s free, right? It’s got to be cheaper than my water bill in Los Angeles.

  • I’m new here and want to try it all!

  • Will work for yarn and popcorn, lol! My yarn spigots would flow with Zauberballs I think…. and all the sock yarn

  • I am a fan of all animal fiber yarn, there is always something you can make.

  • any yarn from nature is wonderful, there is something to be made with it all, big or small. My spigot would surprise me everyday.

  • Ombre and semi-solids

  • The hot tap would have a merino or merino silk blend for warmth. The cold tap would have cotton or linen (or a blend of both!) for something w bit breezier.

  • Hmm. Not really needing more yarn at the moment, but would love a tap flowing with the needles in the right size… they always seem to be somewhere i cannot find them!

  • Sylph & any yarn blended with silk

  • I LOVE La Bien Aimee – the name always makes me think of my beautiful daughter, Amy – and my other beautiful daughter Brooke who are due with babies within 7 weeks of each other so I need more yarn for baby clothes! Yarn spigots? I need a yarn hydrant! 🙂

  • Ok, living in western PA, ( notice I didn’t say Pennsylvania- no one here does) it’s spicket in Pittsburghese. But I would love any sock yarn as socks are my current obsession.

  • Ooo, Barnyard Knits Yarn would be flowing from my cold valve and Nua-yak blend from the hot. That is a jolly spigot!

  • Solid colors in fingering and sock yarn.

  • It would be silk fingering yarn of every color imaginable.

  • Too many choices to pick just one – but I’m loving all yarns Rowan at the moment!

  • The spigots at my place all spew odds and ends. All too long to let go of, too short to make anything with by itself.

  • If there was wool especially mohair flowing out of Taos I would think I was in heaven

  • If my yarn faucets were on they would be fingering weight yarn preferably with a bit of cashmere in it like
    Dream In Color Smooshy!

  • My dream yarn spigot would spew beautifully paired color combinations. I always need assistance choosing either matching or contrasting colors for a project. When I bring my selections to the counter at the LYS… the startled looks are priceless. Thankfully, the yarn muses always have suggestions on how to achieve the desired effect.

  • I haven’t tried enough to pick just one! Anything fingering weight or sock yarn.

  • Jamieson’s of Shetland Spindrift. Endless possibilities

  • A nice wool/cotton blend for our hotter climate here in N. California. Or any kind of Zauberball — so fun!

    • Sock yarn it to me, please! I’m so into socks right now and love it’s portability

  • Tukuwool running wool would be a dream come true

  • It would be fingering weight yarns in solids speckled and gradients.

  • I’d dial in my spigot to dispense a wooly dk in all the bright colors for a cozy winter sweater. I’m especially obsessed right now with deep purples with lime green and magenta and cobalt. Maybe it’s the pandemic fatigue.

  • So many yarns, so little time! As others have said, the hot tap could have wool, from the thinnest lace to the chunkiest, and the cold tap would have linen and cotton blends, all in the swirling colors of the Great Lakes (where I live), blues and greens and moody grays with the froth of white spume when the winds get to pushing the waves around…

  • What a decadent thought! Since I am constantly starting a new project on my house, I would guess each spigot would be a different color and fiber content with a changing daily range from fingering to chunky.

  • Brooklyn tweed shelter or shetland wool for colorwork!

  • Nice giveaway! I’d say that the most yarn I have right now is sock yarn….I’m a semi-beginner knitter and I foolishly thought that I would knit my family socks for Christmas…of 2020. Obviously that didn’t happen, but when it does, I’ll be ready!

  • Dyed in the Wool, no doubt!!

  • I’m an equal opportunity yarn consumer. Bring in all on.

  • My house is old with old plumping. My considerable stash is mostly classic wool yarns. They are wonderful but I think it’s time to upgrade my plumbing. It would be fun to have some lovely tonal yarns with some crazy dyed yarn to spice things up or bred specific yarns to explore. Heck, what am I saying? I would welcome almost any good yarn!

  • Oohhh… imagine a yarn spigot. Mine would flow super chunky all winter and beautiful varigated in all the other weights the rest of the year.

  • Of course I have yarn spigot! In fact my spigot have magic handles. They know exactly which yarn I need to wallow in like spaghetti! (Patch Adams anyone?)

  • Tosh Merino Light!!

  • I just signed up for ur Newsletter and now I’m entering ur Drawing. I also bought ur App. For some reason, I’m having trouble learning to purl, sooo in my magical spigot of yarn, there’s a bunch of hues of pinks, which is my favorite color and would easily help me to learn to purl. Lol Ty!

  • Lichen and lace or Euroflax and linen

  • Sock yarn,changing colors cool to hot

  • I really don’t have an absolute favorite brand of yarn or type of yarn, I love it all. So my spigots would be pouring out everything in all colors of different fiber!

  • My yarn spigot would be sock yarn. No, wait, Christmas colors for Christmas balls and stockings. No, wait, super squishy merino wool that feels wonderful in my fingers while knitting. No wait, Jameison and Smith for beautiful color work hats and mitts. Arghh, decisions, decisions…

  • Worsted and/or cotton! Please! Many thanks!

  • Oh my, yarn spigots? I imagine it would be like a candy store, where depending on my mood, I’d get a big bowl, turn a faucet on, and collect a passel of whatever I felt like playing with; lace weight for smart moods, chunky yarn for instant gratification (or last minute gifts), a nice workhorse merino for that sweater I’m going to wear for the next ten years, cashmere for making something that makes my hands happy just touching it.. And inviting friends over to share in the joy. Wow! Now I have a new happy place!

  • I would love to have some Nua (Carol Feller) yarns and any organic wools flow out of my spigots.

  • Plucky Knitter Lodge Worsted. I love that stuff.

  • I’d like a magical tap that varied the yarn coming out of it! Then I wouldn’t get that over-popcorned feeling

  • I’d love to have any yarn by la bien Aimee on tap along with Nua , heaven .

  • Hmmmm…I do love the Lichen & Lace sock…it could pour out for a long while!

  • Swoon-worthy Spincycle Dyed in the Wool for me. Such a wide array of colors, and no 2 skeins exactly alike? Yes, please!!

  • I don’t have a favorite, so I think I’d have different yarns flowing from each of the spigots in my house! Lovely image!

  • Ohhh…spigots of cashmere, qivuit, silk… (sorry, drooling…)

  • Currently at full force from my spigots would be woolly rustic yarns.

  • Crave Caravan! Most luscious yarn I’ve worked with and so nice to wear.

  • I would have a surprise rotating faucet where each week a new glorious yarn tumbles out! And each time it would be a yarn I’d yet to work with so the exploration would be eternal.

  • haven’t bought much yet, but everything I have purchased from MDK has been a joy to knit, so I’d trust you all to convert my plumbing from water to yarn any day!

  • Kiwis united here. But if the wool did flow I’d love anything dark and dreamy with a touch of angora.

  • What an image… my spigot flowing with beautiful soft Worsted for all the baby blankets I’m knitting.

  • Brooklyn Tweed Shelter

  • I would have fingering weight flowing. What a dream that would be.

  • Spigots would be bursting out with Spincycle Dyed in the Wool in my yarn dream.

  • I love all the yarn on your website. Let whatever you have beyond your space come to me.. as long as it is mailable! I am too far north to come down there.

  • Because all yarn is good, I’d like the supply to change monthly. Then I can learn new things with different types of yarn.

  • Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    Blue Cottons!!
  • Wait?! I have yarn spigots? It’s going to be difficult to leave the house!!!!

  • I want this beautiful yarn flowing from the spigots!

    • Rowan Felted Tread all colors can flood from the pipes 24/7.

  • Any of the mini-skeins for a lovely, free-flowing kaleidoscope of color!

  • Repurposed alpaca yarn..
    i frogged a large project from years ago adding to this an aged alpaca stash and have been knitting scarves exploring color.. a challenge.

  • I think a wooly DK would be my default setting if I could only have one choice. But I would need all.the.colors! The idea of a yarn spigot sounds heavenly – new DIY project?

  • Ohmigod, ohmigod you have no idea how much I could use a surprise of beautiful, gorgeous yarn. Here in South Jersey, 2.3 miles from Philadelphia, the yarn spigots flow with fingering weight yarn because I was making Barbie dresses for my grand daughter and experimenting with knitting jewelry for me (Barbie made out better than I did) Anyway, I,m ready for a change so please send me something lucious that will get my knitting fingers itching with excitement. Hooray for MDK – I look forward to your Saturday snippets 😀

  • If I had more yarn, I could start something new and shiny to distract me from my terrible fears of COVID-19’s Delta variant — More. Yarn. helps almost everything be better.

  • Yarns all kinds, but on tap I’ll take old school, scratchy unpredictable Noro Kureyon, the first yarn to make me gape in wonder at the possibilities.

  • Mohonk Light is Shell or other light color. I live in South Florida and it would be perfect for cool nights and winter mornings here.

  • La Bien Aimee forever! All the colours, every blend, every weight. Please.

  • One tap would be for DK yarns, the other would be for fine and lace weights. Natural fibers, wool, silk, alpaca, etc. I live in the deep south, don’t need the bigger yarns as much.

  • No brainer, people! When I turned on the yarn, out would flow whatever yarn is needed for the current MDK knit along!

  • Charles Village DK please and thank you ! But I have more faucets….hmmm

  • Would be happy with any Neighborhood Fiber Co. or Malabrigo wool pouring from my spigot.

  • Natural sheep colors from your variegated flock!

  • I’d pick some lovely Jamiesons Shetland Spindrift to knit a beautiful Marie Wallin fair isle jumper

  • Well water comes from the spigots at my house – and how hard or soft is directly dependent upon the last time we loaded the softener with salt. Since the softener is buried under a corner of my stash…sometimes the water can get hard, and every day can be a new adventure. My yarn spigot would be like that. Never sure what will come out. Always useful. Anything from the cheap workhorse yarns, to the softest, squishiest surprise…all is good, all has a purpose. And lately, I have been grabbing a bag from my stash and “challenging” myself to empty it. So fun! And so blessed to have a stash during these strange times!!

  • All the cashmere, any brand, both spigots!

  • Super wash DK for more knits for my new granddaughter, Ellie Rose.

  • I think my family would agree – ALL the yarn! I love trying out new bases and once I find something I like, I purchase extra in various colors. In summer, I like to work with cotton, silk and linen. In winter, I pull out wool, both superwash and non.

  • I’m new to knitting, allergic to polyester, and have trouble with wool… Alpaca anything would be top of my list.

  • A wool – silk blend

  • SweetGeorgia CashSilk lace!

  • I like all yarn

  • Sock yarn is my favorite to knit with! I love wearing items made out of sock yarn. Sometimes even socks!

  • Anything DK bc the sweaters knit up so quickly and the patterns pop.

  • Anything but alpaca (allergies). I would love to see every faucet have a different yarn but Nua sport would be a favorite.

  • Would love to make a sweater with Lettlopi

  • Chunky yarn is what I long for! I am elderly and want to knit a blanket or sweater for each grandchild.
    Love all your yarn and wish I could buy all of the beautiful colors.

  • From the spigot would come some hand-dyed Suri alpaca from my niece that my granddaughters selected for hats.

  • Oh, anything wooly, from sock weight to worsted/Aran. My happy place is full of wool and color!
