More Unique Than Expected

I love that the baskets are made of reclaimed materials

Did you know that the Amy Eve Jo baskets are made of reclaimed fabric remnants from the garment industry?

That’s the biggest reason I chose to work with this yarn, because I liked saving this versatile material from being tossed in the landfill. However that means that the yarn’s availability is unpredictable. I knew that going in, but I didn’t realize just how limited the supplies were. That means, the baskets in the shop, are actually ONE-OF-A-KIND pieces, making them way more unique than I expected. I suppose that’s the nature of using recycled/reclaimed materials. I liken it to chefs who frequently change their menus based on what they find at the farmers market.

I’m brainstorming on how to best work out a system for handling unpredictably limited products. For now, I’ve implemented a “Waitlist” system to the website. If the item is sold out, the product title will indicate “(Waitlist Only)”. And when you click on that item’s page, you’ll see a button to “Subscribe to waitlist.” When you submit your email address, I’ll email you when the item is available again. Super easy!

On a related note, you can also save your favorite products by clicking on “Add to Wishlist.” This will be available on all products, whether it’s in stock. You’ll be able to see your Wishlist on your “Wishlist” and “My Account” pages. And if you’re not a registered user of the site, the Wishlist will stay active for 30 days.

Love Denim?

Denim is pretty much a part of my daily uniform. I love the stuff! So, I’m totally excited that my favorite things–yarn, denim, and sustainability–have combined in the form of yarn that’s made of 100% recycled denim. I should receive my box of recycled denim yarn in a matter of days, so I’ll let you know how it works out.
