Periodically, Republic of Yarnia produces limited runs of specially designed colorways. These colorways are based on anything to do with history! See below for upcoming releases, pre-orders and more.


Griffin's Glory
Release Date: July 15

For all you cotton lovers or those who can't work with protein fibers out there, this is a short limited run of cotton just for you! 

This fun colorway is based on a glamorous looking griffin in a French medieval manuscript. 
The colorway is a midnight blue that transitions into a deep maroon and then a carmine red. The red flows into a copper/deep orange color before transitioning out to a strong sun yellow. 

Each skein is 400m/100g of organic cotton in 4-ply/DK weight yarn. This Peruvian sourced cotton is super soft, has a slight sheen, and has excellent stitch definition.


Paris, Bibl. Sainte-Geneviève, ms. 0106, f. 100r. Evangéliaire à l’usage de l’abbaye Sainte-Geneviève de Paris. c 1525-1530.

Marsha's Crown
Release Date: Available

Marsha P. Johnson was a prominent figure in the US gay liberation movement, and was also a drag queen. To live on the margins was something Marsha knew well, so she devoted much of her life to advocating for homeless LGBTQ+ youth, gay & transgender rights, and those affected by AIDS and HIV. Marsha was well known for her floral crowns.

Each skein is 400m/100g of Merino/nylon fingering/sock weight yarn. Each skein comes with a beautiful commemorative sticker of a stained glass window featuring Marsha P Johnson.


This colorway takes inspiration from the colors of her crown as we honor her throughout June. 10% of all skeins sold will go to the Marsha P Johnson Institute that protects & supports Black trans folks.

When we think of space, we don't often think of history but all the pictures we have of space are of the past by the time they reach us.
