KidKnits is excited to announce the debut of a new yarn color, courtesy of our partners at True Vineyard Ministries! The new color is called Dejina, and is a deep shade of green. It is dyed with a leafy plant called Dejina in Kinyarwanda. While I don’t know the exact name of the plant in English, I can tell you that when we were in Rwanda this summer, Everiste was experimenting with the Dejina dyeing, and the plant smells like spinach when boiled!
The new color will be available for purchase on our website this November, but the first place it will be available for sale is at the KidKnits trunk show event at Ten Thousand Villages on Sunday, October 9, from 1pm to 5pm!
