COUNTESS ABLAZE, a fellow indie hand dyer from Manchester recently made this nasty experience:

In March 2018, after receiving a misogynistic email calling my client base "middle age women happy to be served shit tea and  cheap tray bake" (paraphrasing) and asking for a ton of free yarn and my time to the tune of over a grand and masquerading their proposal as a charity event, I turned this on it's head and used my anger for good. We dyed two colourways - Shit Tea and Tray Bake and If I Want Exposure, I'll Get My Tits Out. 

It´s been a BIG success, she sold over 1000 skeins and by spending 3£ per skein to Woman`s Aid she raised over 3000£ and donated it!! Well done!!

I do share her anger 100% and am happy to announce, that she took ACTION again and invited fellow indie dyers and designers to unite and to do our own CHARITY. Sure, I´m joining her!!

Have a look here to see who else is involved.

All colour ways or designs are called: "IF I WANT EXPOSURE, I´LL GET MY TITS OUT......"

Mine is called: "IF I WANT EXPOSURE, I´LL GET MY TITS OUT GENTLY" - You know me, I´m the gently type, colour wise :) 

From the 1st of July until the 1st of August  3,50€ of each skein you order from my shop of this so called colour way will be donated to ONE DOLLAR GLASSES / EIN DOLLAR BRILLE . That means by buying one skein, you will bring a clear sight to more than 3 people who so urgently need a pair of glasses and can´t afford to buy one themselves. I´ve followed up this charity for quite a while now and adore what even one inspired person was and is able to achieve. This project has become bigger and bigger all over the world. The sustainable way of developing it has not just brought sight, but also work, independence and a bit of justice to many people.

SO, HERE IT COMES, MY:  "IF I WANT EXPOSURE, I´LL GET MY TITS OUT GENTLY".

It´s a beautiful tender half grace/porcelain half plum blossom dye, speckled with a striking scarlett. Available in two fingering yarn bases: welthase merino light and a new luxurious cashmere merino yarn (which the members of the welthase SOFTIE YARN CLUB do already know).
