Made by Hailey Bailey Custom Hand-Dyed Yarn

We're thrilled to announce that we now carry Made by Hailey Bailey Classic Sock yarn! The variegated and semi-solid hues of this gorgeous hand-dyed yarn are inspired by nature, with evocative names like Rosy Finch, Pine Warbler, and Luna Moth.


As an extra special treat for Local Yarn Store 2024, Hailey worked with us to create two custom colorways, hand-dyed exclusively for The Endless Skein. The colorways are called Sprout and Flourish (shown at right) and you can't get them anywhere else!


We had a wonderful conversation with dyer/designer Hailey Bailey!
