3rd Annual Spring Sale

It’s hard to believe that only 4 years ago I opened my little Etsy shop to start selling my dye overflow projects and that I’ve now transitioned to nearly full-time dyeing. As a thank you to all of those who’ve made it possible for me to keep dyeing, it’s time for my 3rd annual anniversary/spring sale. Use coupon code 17in17 for 17% off all in stock yarn and fiber from April 1st to the 17th.

New yarn and Free US shipping

There is a new yarn base in the Lakes Yarn shop. A decadent blend of 80% Merino and 20% Cashmere has made its way into my dye pots. This fingering weight 4-ply yarn has 437 yards per 100 grams and is soft, soft, soft.

There is also free shipping available on U.S. orders through 12/24 with coupon code FREESHIP16 and $10 off international orders of at least two skeins with coupon code INTSHIP.

2nd Anniversary Sale!

It’s time to celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of opening Lakes Yarn and Fiber! As a thank you to all of my customers I’m offering a coupon code that I will make live the morning of April 1 (right before I leave for work). Use code APRIL2015 for 15% off any in stock yarn or fiber. The code will be good through April 10th.

I have a few things to list again probably late Friday evening, so if there’s nothing to strike your fancy now be sure to check back again over the weekend!

Autumn Update

Lakes Yarn will be having an update today, September 26th at 4 p.m. PST. The update will include two brand new bases — both silk blends, but far different from each other. The first is a worsted weight blend of 60% Merino and 40% silk that knits up into lovely and soft accessories. The second is a fingering weight blend of 60% superwash Merino, 20% yak and 20% silk. The natural brown color of the yak and the shine of silk combine to produce striking colors when overdyed.

There are also lots of old favorites, including several sweater lots of Hayden DK and Organic Merino Sport. This will be my largest update so far, so I hope to see you there!

Shop Update and New Sport Weight Yarn

After a lot of shopping bases and swatching I’ve finally chosen a Superwash Merino Sport Weight Base which I’m calling Myrtle Sport. It’s 330 yards of squishy soft 3 ply and will retail for $19/113 gram skein. I have just a few colors in this update, but I’m always happy to do custom orders and this yarn is one that is sticking around. Also included in this update is a smattering of Single Fingering and Silk Single Fingering. The Lakes Yarn Shop will be updated on June 24th at 8 p.m. Pacific time.
