Showing Asylum Fibers

Asylum Fibers is hosting a KAL/CAL in collaboration with Kristy Glass of Kristy Glass Knits and Michele Costa of Stitch and Hustle.

Kristy is best known for her “Tell me about your Rhinebeck Sweater” video, so it’s especially fitting that this knit and crochet along will culminate in a fun group photo at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival. If you can’t make it but would like to be included in Kristy’s video, you can send her a photo.

Michele designed two shawl patterns for this KAL/CAL. Unicorn Kounty is a knit pattern that’s simple enough for beginners, but allows a lot of room for interpretation for adventurous knitters. Unicorn County is the crocheted version and looks very similar. It’s extra special that both knitters and crocheters can participate in this together, and I’ve already seen quite a few double dippers! Both patterns are available on Ravelry.

The original kit for what I’ve been calling the “Unicorn Along” has colors curated by Kristy and adorable unicorn themed stitch markers as well as a limited edition project bag. There are just a few of these kits left from Stitch and Hustle.

For those looking to break the mold, I’ve put together some other color combos, using the same sparkle DK base as the original kit, and they will be available at 7 p.m. EST, Friday, August 24th.

If you can join us, share your progress using #kgkunicornalong!

P.S.: I can’t wait to see you at the Indie Untangled Trunk Show! Look forward to a very special pattern and kit collaboration with Lavendar Lune Yarn Co. and Mina Philipp, aka Knitting Expat on Youtube. There will be mohair involved!

Its official! Asylum Fibers will be doing a monthly color club in 2018. Get your Madness of the Month while sampling a variety of bases.

Each month, you’ll be able to choose between a fingering weight yarn or another heavier base. The color will be the same on both bases and a total surprise. Sign-ups for the January club will be available starting December 15th at 7 p.m. EST and will close December 27th at 9 a.m. EST. Yarn will be shipped out mid month in January.

Asylum Fibers launched in February 2017, after less than a month of planning. Stephanie (the dyer) claims she follows her instincts above all else and isn’t afraid to take a risk. The brand name was thought up in order to incorporate the playfulness of horror flicks while leveraging the other meaning of the word “asylum”, acknowledging that crafting is such a wonderful, meaningful form of therapy and comfort. Stephanie dyes within her Queens apartment in small batches, focusing on in-your-face, vibrant tones and one of a kind colorways on versatile and luxurious bases.

Asylum Fibers will be having a shop update Friday, October 6th at 7 p.m. EDT. This will be the last update before the Indie Untangled Rhinebeck Kickoff, and will include a variety of bases in both regular and OOAK colorways.

Ahead of the IU Trunk Show coming up on October 20th, I thought you should be the first to know that the Oak Grove Quilter graciously provided me with another batch of project bags, in new limited edition fabrics, which I’ll leave a surprise for now. These will be available first at the IU event, and any leftovers will be posted for sale online the following week. I’ll also be premiering my new JUMBO base called Monstrosity at the event. It’s a 100% Superwash Merino I-cord constructed yarn, which comes in giant, squishy 250 gram skeins, 21 yards each. If you’ve been wondering what to do with those US Size 50 needles, here’s your chance to give them a go!

Asylum Fibers has created three colorful kits for Speckle and Pop, Stephen West’s Mystery Knit Along, due for cast-on September 29th. This mystery shawl calls for a speckled fade of three colors along with five mini “pop” skeins. If you’ve never done a Westknits MKAL, why not start this year? It’s so fun to participate with other knitters around the world and see how all the color combos work up into his inventive designs through the magical powers of social media and Ravelry. Kits are available starting Sunday, September 3rd at 10am EDT.

It’s the six month anniversary of Asylum Fibers! To celebrate this little milestone, the Oak Grove Quilter (who happens to be my brilliant mother) made some fabulous limited edition project bags. These high-quality bags are the perfect size for a wide variety of projects. I even fit a short-sleeved sweater in mine!


– The outer fabric is a blood splatter print by Robert Kaufman and the interior and zipper are red.
– The stand-out feature of this bag is the metal bar encased along the edge of the zipper, which holds the bag open when unzipped so it acts as a yarn bowl.
– There is one inner pocket measuring 6″ x 3″, bearing the Asylum Fibers Logo.
– Overall dimensions are 9″ long x 4″ wide x 6″ tall.
– The interfacing used between the outer fabric and the lining give this bag a real sturdiness that’s hard to find in similar products.

If you enjoyed the Find Your Fade Shawl as much as me, you were probably really excited to hear about Andrea Mowry’s new pattern, the So Faded sweater!

I am all about this, and since I’m working on my own So Faded right now, I can say what a great pattern it is. So many options, and as a top-down, seamless knit, it’s easy to try it on as you go and make it fit exactly the way you want. The simplicity of the style is perfect for featuring hand-dyed yarns, so I’m working on some killer fade kits.

Right now, the pictured kit is available for pre-order, expected to ship on or before May 16th. I also plan to work up a whole bunch of OOAK kits. I’m using two different base options, Funny Farm, a super soft Merino/Cashmere/nylon yarn, and Twisted, a plump, 2-ply sock yarn. Expect to see these start popping up in shop the week of May 12th.

Joji Locatelli is doing a Mystery Knit Along, available for sign-up on April 18th. It’s been four years since her last one, so I’m especially excited for this. The MKAL is going to be a five-color wrap. With her guidance, I’ve put together the two kits pictured above, which will be available to order between April 18th and April 25th.

I’m only dyeing a limited number of these kits, and they will be just perfect for what Joji’s got up her sleeve. You’ll receive them in the mail in time for the first clue on May 12th, and I’ll even wind them for you if you’d like. Each kit is comprised of five full skeins of my Madhouse fingering yarn, which is 100% Superwash Merino wool. I’ll be making one myself, and I can’t wait to see all our wraps taking shape!

Also new in shop are spring mini sets. Take a look, and embrace your crazy!

Has anyone ever told you you’re crazy? Not just in general, but when it comes to your “unhealthy” obsession with yarn? Well, we as crafters are far from ordinary, and I say, “Embrace your crazy!”

I’m thrilled to announce the grand opening of Asylum Fibers. At 10pm EST on Friday, February 24th, I hope you can join me to celebrate, either by shopping or through the sorcery known as Facebook Live.

Asylum Fibers offers small batch, hand dyed yarns, with an emphasis on what I call “Chaos Colorways.” These non-repeatable batches will be included in every store update. I will also be offering regular colorways, including Bad Bad Girl, Holy Exorcism, Hydrotherapy, Metrazol, Moody, Redrum, The Shower Scene, and Voices. You get the idea, right?

Everything in the shop will be at least 25% off for the first month because I’m just so dang jolly about this whole thing.
