Stardust by Brown Paper Packages
brown paper packages® was begun in 1975 as a company designing and creating needlepoint purse kits. The two founders of the company were trying desperately to think of a name for their new endeavor when an acquaintance came into the room whistling "brown paper packages tied up with strings . . . these are a few of my favorite things" and it stuck. Our kits were packaged to fit the name.
In 1994 a customer came across a lovely fiber called "Silk & Ivory®" and suggested we market it in several colors to see how it might sell. It soon became such a success that we phased out the purse kits and devoted full time to the new yarn. It has grown from our first order of five colors to a total of 250 colors in Silk & Ivory®, 244 in Trio, and 26 colors in Stardust
Yarns for needlepoint, cross-stitch, knitting, and crochet , made in Switzerland of 50% silk and 50% Merino wool.
