We’re back from a truly energizing weekend at the Georgia FiberFest and I’m all about making a few much needed changes around here. The first change — and it’s been a big one, not to mention a bit time consuming — is the new look of the online shop. The new set-up should make it easier to shop — just click on the individual listing instead of working with a drop-down box and trying make sure that you are actually ordering the colorway you want. The side bar scrolls up and down, now, too, so I you can click the link to go directly to your favorite yarn. It’s neater, faster, and brighter!
You will notice, though, that some of the yarn labels are “missing.” I’ve decided that it’s time to retire a few labels, what with changing suppliers and adding new yarn lines this year, and the wonderful shoppers at the Georgia FiberFest were more than happy to help me close out that stock. Belle Luxe, Cielo DK, Flock 195, Flock 225, and Flock 335 have all gone away.
Now it’s time to look to autumn for jewel-toned yarns and a darker color palette. I’m looking for natural, earthy tones for my autumn colorways and these can be found in the Journey, Rocket Sock, Rocket Sock Medium, and our newest line, Single Sheep. Single Sheep is our version of the fingering weight single (think Tosh Merino Light) and Blanche, Stella, and Oliver have been gracious enough to give us the fleece off of their backs to make it. Because it’s our first yarn run ever with fleece grown right here at Cedar Hill Farm, quantities are limited. In other words, if you place an order you will want to order exactly what you will need the first time. We also have new colorways of spinning fiber and a bunch of new project bags with grommets.
So stop by the online shop to check out the new yarns and colorways. As always, we also do custom orders and wholesale to LYS and you can contact me through the online shop or by email if you are interested in ordering.
