Elliebelly is Reopening

After many years away from selling yarn, but during which I extensively refined my dyeing techniques, tested out bases, and worked on matching up yarns with just the right patterns for them, Elliebelly will be reopening in January of 2017. I am so grateful to all of the knitters who hung out with me on my Ravelry group during the years when my yarn wasn’t for sale, and I am looking forward to making new knitting friends when I reopen. Elliebelly will always be a very small, hand-dyed by me, whimsical operation that offers luxury yarns in beautiful colorways.

For now, I hope you’ll visit my website and sign up to receive email as we move towards our launch date (personally, I receive way too much email, so I promise to keep it to a minimum and fun). It’s exciting and a little bit frightening. But my motto is still the same: Go Knit Something!

Elliebelly Dye Works – Not Just Another Pretty Skein

This is a quick update for everyone who has been nice enough to email and say this miss us! Some of you have noticed changes on the website, as we incorporate the new logo and start changing up the site. While I’ve been away from selling yarn, we’ve been busy knitting samples. When the new site launches, there will be lots of advice on which yarns love which patterns, how the different colorways knit up (which can be a surprise from how they look in the skein), and making decisions about substituting yarns. The opportunity to test knit extensively with our yarn will enhance your experience and the information we can provide to help you get just what you want. We are really looking forward to the launch, but it won’t be for a while yet. Please stay in touch with us on The Elliebelly Blog until then!
