Our little ol' white van, which is old enough to have a college degree, needs to retire to a home where it can live out its days in leisure.
This gives us the opportunity to upgrade to a real, honest to goodness YARN SHOP IN A VAN. When we go places, we'll be able to take an expanded inventory and showcase our yarns in style. It will also allow us to go places where we've never gone before, like small yarn shops and guild meetings. Help us get there and get some goodies while you are at it!
We've got to get the van, fixtures, shelves, logos, ramps, etc etc etc to make it safe and pretty to come visit you!
We're going to produce 2 exclusive colors which will only be made until this fundraiser is over. Although UPP is known for our colorful yarn, people also LOVE our neutrals. So, in honor of the old van, we've got "Dirty Old Van" Light and Dark, plus a gradient set that contains both of them - the Morphic Kit.
You can get them in Peacock Sock (460 Yards of Superwash Merino and Nylon) or our Superwash DK (230 yards of Superwash Merino).
When we get the first set done, we'll put up the photos, but the light will be white with speckled brown, black and grey, and the dark will be black washed with brown with white splashes. Or - you can get self striping with both (460 yards of fingering)!
You could be asking yourself why we didn't just go on a Crowdfunding website - well - there are a lot of extra fees involved with that. We want to be able to give you a better deal AND use more of your money to get us a van, so consider this our homegrown crowdfunding!
You can support us at many levels - and get awesome perks (prices include shipping to the USA):
