THE A IS FOR ASEXUAL, the yarn, is inspired by the asexual pride flag, which features black, grey, white, and purple stripes. The "A" in LGBTQIA stands for ASEXUAL, not Ally, and this yarn is a reminder in case you forgot!
THE A IS FOR ASEXUAL is part of our GENDER REPEAL collection, where a portion of proceeds benefits Kaleidoscope Youth Center and BQIC.
Kaleidoscope is the largest and longest-standing organization in Ohio solely dedicated to serving and supporting queer youth. They work to provide a safer place, programming, and leadership opportunities so that youth can be free to explore who they are and empowered to become their confident, truest self. Black Queer & Intersectional Collective (BQIC) is a grassroots community organization that works towards the liberation of Black queer, trans, and intersex people from all walks of life through direct action, community organizing, education on issues, and creating spaces to uplift the voices of the Black LGBTQIA+ community.
Self-striping yarns as part of the GENDER REPEAL collection are on our Chester Sock yarn (75% superwash merino, 25% nylon) base only. If you would like a different base, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up the order. It will be a special order and the stripes will not the same length as they are on the sock base. Please allow up to 6-8 weeks between purchase and delivery due to the time and labor intensive process to create self-striping yarns. GENDER REPEAL collection yarns will also be wound into cakes instead of skeins and be ready to go once they arrive in your hands!
