We’ve got some exciting changes going on! This post will describe the yarny changes, I will save the other subject for another post. We have added several new yarns and fibers to our regular offerings recently. We now have Fifty-Three yarns and fibers as regular offerings. Below is a picture of one of them–Yak Silk Merino DK. It’s a non superwash yarn that’s soft, round, and has a slight sheen from the silk. It starts out as a medium-light brownish grey, so it dyes with added depth and earthiness. This yarn is really similar in feel and look to our Organic Merino Line and would make a cosy sweater or cowl. I look forward to your feedback!
In related news, we have (finally!) named all of our yarns. You will find their new names, fiber content, and short descriptions here. I Hope that you love the new names as much as I do! Naming was a painstaking process, but I have been told that they sound ‘magical’, and that’s good for a product that, through the alchemy of knitting, becomes something extra-ordinary…right?
We have also changed the skein size on several of our yarns (see the Product Line Page) We’ve bumped up the ounces on anything we can get on cones to 4 oz vs. 3.5. We are finding that our customers prefer the extra yardage. Those remaining at 3.5 oz are the yarns that we can only get on skeins at the moment. Prices for the ones now at 4 oz have gone up slightly.
In club news, we’ve changed the Gradient club to be a club with previews. The commitment is one skein per month. You may choose ONE of any of the colors in either gradient offered, a gradient set (or two), etc. on whatever yarn or fiber you desire. There is still time to join–previews will be up very soon but in the meantime you can read about the club on our Clubs Group on Ravelry.
Lastly, we are a featured dyer for KnitCrate for November! Massive amounts of yarn are on their way to Texas as I type. KnitCrate is an amazing yarn subscription service that you will want to check out if you have not.Posted by
