New from Reywa Fibers: Embrace

July 03, 2013

Reywa means hope in Tibetan, and by purchasing from Reywa Fibers, hope is what you’re providing — profits from Reywa go towards tuition assistance and coverage of living expenses for impoverished children in Tibet.  If that weren’t enough, Reywa takes part in grassland restoration projects, helping to improve the grazing lands of the yaks.  Embrace features an unbelievable, cashmere-like softness.  This yarn has quickly become a favorite among ImagiKnit staff, and we’re confident you will love it as much as we do.
