Small Business Saturday

We will be offering our customers 10% off of their yarn purchase and free shipping for orders over $100. It’s not to late to start that last minute project. We have a limited number of skeins of Christmas inspired colored yarn for those last minute projects or maybe socks for yourself. Shopping Code is GobbleGobble and it’s good until 11/27/18.

Celebrate Thanksgiving with 15% Off

Did you know that the tryptophan in turkey isn’t what makes you sleepy after a big Thanksgiving meal? The potatoes, yams and pumpkin pie — all carbohydrate-dense foods — are to blame for your post-dinner drowsiness. Just a little science fact for you to share with your family around the dinner table. 🙂

Speaking of science, my hand-dyed yarns are created using equal parts chemistry and creativity. As the holiday season approaches, I wanted to offer a 15% off sale on all full-sized skeins, no coupon needed, in my Etsy shop to help you treat that special crafter in your life to some hand-dyed sock yarn. Self care is important too, so if you see a skein that catches your eye, make sure to snap it up for yourself! Most of my yarns are dyed as single skeins so many colourways may never be repeated again. The sale ends Monday, November 27.

Oh, and have that second cup of coffee (or tea!) after Thanksgiving dinner. You’ll need a little energy boost to fit in some much-needed knitting time as you enjoy the company of those closest to you. Happy Thanksgiving!

Black Friday Sale and Shop Update

Don’t forget to treat yourself during all the holiday hustle and bustle. To make it easier to do that, we’re kicking off our Black Friday sale a little early this year. Starting Wednesday November 22nd, you can stock up on our gorgeous yarns all at 20% off. In addition, our clubs — which already offer better pricing the longer you subscribe — will all be 10% off. We’ll also have a clearance section of discontinued bases and colorways with hefty savings of 40% off the regular price.

We’ll be including sweater quantities of Merino/Cashmere/nylon worsted weight yarn, our pre-orders for Comfort Fade Cardi Sets and our beautiful Through the Looking Glass collaboration as well if any are still in stock when the sale begins. No need to fight any crowds, you can shop this sale in your PJs Wednesday morning, on the couch while everyone naps off their turkey comas, or at work on Tuesday after things calm down.

Fluffy U Fiber Farm

Fall is the perfect time to try Fluffy U Fiber Farm’s yarns. We are a small farm located in Dover, Pennsylvania. We raise various British breed and heritage breed sheep whose fiber we use to produce our line of yarns. We hand-dye all of our yarns and roving. Our goal is to provide quality yarn and roving from our farm to ewe. Small Business Saturday is fast approaching and we will be offering some incentives for our shoppers.

Winter Collection

Winter is soon approaching here in the Hudson Valley and on November 1, 2017, the Pandia’s Jewels Winter Collection will launch on the website. This collection will includes a bunch of new winter-inspired colors that range from speckled to blue/green tonal colors. All of the colors will be in stock, ready to ship, and will be available on a variety of yarn bases, including my Snug fingering, Shimmer single-ply fingering, and Delight DK. A few colors are even OOAK, which means they are one of a kind and usually dyed in small quantities.

Socktoberfest Sale

Here’s how Socktoberfest works:

McMullin Fiber Co. is celebrating Socktober with a Socktoberfest sale and giveaway!

First – you get 25% off your purchase. The entire shop is on sale through October 31st. Fade sets, minis, Merino/Cashmere/nylon blends, so much fibery goodness.

Next, for every individual item you purchase, you get an entry into one of our giveaways. Let us know in the notes to seller how you would like to split up your entries: [A] 3 months of Lit Society yarn club (value $99), [B] Ball winder and swift (value $110), or [C] and [D] two fiber craft care packages with yarn and other fiber loving accessories (est. value $60/ea). Yarn club signups count as one item per month purchased (a 12 month subscription = 12 entries!). Multiple skein sets count for as many skeins in the bundle (mini sets count as one).

So basically you pick how you enter – put all your entries into one basket, or split them up among a few different giveaways. You can also get one entry just by following us and commenting on Instagram (@mcmullinfiberco) or Facebook. We’ll announce drawing winners in our Etsy shop announcement and on our social media accounts on November 1st. Good luck!!!

It’s never too early…

The holidays are just around the corner, and while I’m among the group who prefers to celebrate one at a time, as a crafter I understand the need to start holiday projects with plenty of time to finish! This year, Youghiogheny Yarns is offering not 1, not 2 but 3 holiday colors to help you get into the spirit! Each one is available to order on either our Mon Sock base which is a wonderfully soft and durable blend of 75% superwash Merino and 25% nylon or our gorgeously squishy Yough DK base which is 100% superwash Merino. Perfect for everything from socks to sweaters! Our holiday colors will only be around until December 24, so get yours before they’re gone.

If you’re not familiar with southwestern Pennsylvania pronunciations, it’s “yock-i-gainey.” Think “yock” like “sock”!
