Spring Colorways Shop Update!

Kim at Kim Dyes Yarn has been busy dyeing up a line of new colorways for spring and is excited to share them with you in a shop update. You’ll fall for bright and fun colorways like Bed of Iris, Beach House, and Peaches on a variety of yarn weights from fingering to bulky.

Also in this shop update are new shawl length skeins on Croissant sock, a 100% superwash merino fingering yarn. Each skein has 650 yards–enough to make numerous shawl patterns. AND! Bulky skeins are instock, now with 150 yards for the same price as the old skeins of 105 yards. I heard your concern that 105 yards wasn’t enough for many projects and decided to make the bulky Cream Puff Superwash Merino yarn even better.

Spinners, watch for colorways on Sparkly Superwash Merino, Superwash Targhee, & BFL/Silk.

The shop update goes live at Noon EST on Friday, April 14th. Thank you!

Wear a Little Ziggy Stardust with Kim Dyes Yarn and Caroline Hockenberry

Ziggy Stardust is one of the most popular speckled colorways by Kim Dyes Yarn — a gray background with speckles of pink, teal, and blue. Caroline Hockenberry from Fibernate transformed a skein of Ziggy Stardust into this shawlette pattern, ready to be worn to all of the concerts and shows you hit this summer. It features garter stitch and a diamond shaped lace border and is the perfect size to throw over your shoulders when you’re sitting on a lawn at night watching your favorite band.

Kim Dyes Yarn and Caroline Hockenberry are excited to be debuting this pattern at Fibernate’s Friday Knit Night on May 20th. Please visit Fibernate for more information on location and time. We are offering a 15% discount on the yarn and pattern, if purchased together at the Friday Knit Night event.

If you can’t make it Friday night or aren’t local, you may purchase the yarn (15% off) and pattern ($3.00) at kimdyesyarn.com and Caroline’s Ravelry store at the special release pricing for one week.

Did Someone Say Gilmore Girls Yarn Club?!?!?

I’m such a hardcore Gilmore Girls fan and I can’t even describe to you how excited I am about this new yarn club!

The three-month subscriptions means you will get a skein of sock or worsted weight yarn in your mailbox each month. Each colorway is exclusive to the club members and will be based on the amazing characters of Stars Hollow.

Out of the three months, at least one skein will be a luxury yarn including silk, cashmere, yak or other wonderful fiber. The club is $70 for three months in the US (including shipping) and $100 for other countries (including shipping).

The first shipment is scheduled for September 15th. Subscriptions for this round are open until September 10th. Don’t delay! Spots are limited.

Ziggy Stardust!

Kim Dyes Yarn is excited to share the newest colorway, Ziggy Stardust. Ziggy Stardust is a pink tinged gray overdyed with speckles of bright blue, teal, and hot pink — understated and overstated at the same time.
