Spooky October advent calandars are back!

Hello all!

We are so excited to announce the opening of our second annual round of Spooky October “Advent” calendar preorders! Our listing will go live on Monday, June 8th at 5 p.m. EDT.

This “Advent” is inspired by everything dark and spooky about the fall season, ghosts, graveyards, creepy crawlies and maybe even some of your worst fears. If these are things you think about fondly or hold near and dear, then this is the advent for you!

All colors are a complete mystery, but you won’t be disappointed.

Calendars will include 30 20g mini skeins and one 100g skein, designed to be opened daily. You will also receive some special secret goodies!

This year, there will be two different bases to choose from:
Tralala Sock (75/25 SW Merino, nylon, 4 ply)
Ewetopia DK (100% SW Merino, 4 ply)

Preorders will close on Sunday, June 21st at 11:59pm EDT, and will ship by mid-September.

I hope to see you in the shop!

New base, new kits, and a discount!

  • Blue, pink and gray speckled yarn.

Hello all,

We have a lot going on this week! Saturday’s update (March 21st at 10 a.m. EDT) is a big one so you won’t want to miss it.

Our new Faun base is making its debut! Faun is the softest base we’ve ever dyed. It is an 80/10/10 blend of SW Merino, Cashmere and nylon on a springy 3-ply twist with 414yds/skein. Faun is just a touch heavier than sock weight yarn, but not quite a sport weight, making it perfect for projects that require either weight.And did I mention the drape? It’s incredible! The 3-ply twist and Cashmere make for such an interesting fabric that takes the dye a little differently than the other bases we carry. The speckles soak in a bit more and the tonals are much more balanced. You’ll have to feel it to believe it!

Have you seen the new Side Trip cowl by Samantha Guerin?! It is a reversible colorwork cowl that only takes two skeins of Lambstrings Yarn Ewetopia DK. She’s so talented! We will have kits for the Side Trip cowl available in the update.

Of course, we have to acknowledge that these are weird and scary times for all of us. I’m well aware that so many are going forward without the security of finances and/or are dealing with this epidemic in isolation and fear. We need to be taking care of ourselves and others, it is so incredibly important! Whatever your situation, we would like to be supportive.

Beginning Saturday, March 21st at 10 a.m. EDT, EITHER use code “STAYHOME” to receive 10% off your entire purchase -or- choose not to use the code, and 10% of your purchase will be donated to Direct Relief, an organization that provides doctors and those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak with medical supplies and critical patient care. Please visit their website to learn more or make a personal donation.

Donations from Lambstrings Yarn will be made weekly to help expedite funds.

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy, and crafting like crazy!

Exclusive Indie Untangled 2019 colorway preorder is HERE!

Happy September everyone!!!

We recently opened our preorders for our exclusive Indie Untangled colorway for event ticket holders. This year’s colorway is called “Spook Rock Rd,” a warm grey speckled with golds, oranges, and dusty purple. It is inspired by a haunted road in my new hometown of Hudson, N.Y., just north of the Dutchess County Fairgrounds.

These skeins will be pick-up-only at the Indie Untangled pre-Rhinebeck event on October 18th. They will not be shipped. This preorder will close on Saturday, September 14th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern.

If you are not attending the event, you can still preorder your skeins starting on September 15th.

Spook Rock Rd. is available on three bases: Sadie Singles (100% SW Merino, single ply, 400yds), Tralala Sock (75/25 SW Merino/nylon, 4-ply, 463yds), and Ewetopia DK (100% SW Merino, 4-ply, 231yds). Quantities are limited, so don’t wait!

Kits, “Advents”, and fall colorways

  • A brown and purple variegated yarn

Autumn is right around the corner and we’re seeing so many beautiful designs emerging just in time to craft that special Rhinebeck project. Lots of new things are happening here to keep up!

First, have you seen the brand new design by the very talented Tyne Swedish?! The Trelawney Shawl is a gorgeous large triangular knit, striped shawl using just two skeins of sock yarn, and we just happen to have kits ready to ship! Just in time, too, because she is hosting the #TrelawneyShawlKAL which runs from August 30th through September 30th.

Kits are limited, so act fast!

We’ve also added two new colorways to the shop this week. High Tide is a lovely variegated blue and sandy brown inspired my the moon’s influence over the seas. I just love the relationship between the two and was eager to capture that in a colorway.

OOAK Leaf Pile is a tonal brown speckled with golds, yellows, oranges, and warm browns, just like jumping into a giant pile of leaves.

Finally, we’ve decided to add one more day to the Spooky Holiday “Advent” Calendar pre-orders at the request of some. There are still a few spots left, so if you had your eye on this kit, there is still time to grab it. These Spooky Holiday Calendars are inspired by all that is creepy and unsettling during the holiday season. There will be some very unique colorways coming!

Hope you can stop by the shop soon!

Happy August everyone!

I can’t believe the summer is almost over, but I’m so happy to be in Autumn/Winter mode. This week I’m thinking way ahead to the holidays by opening our first preorders of the season.

The Spooky Holiday Advent-style Calendar preorders are live as of this morning and will be available until August 24th, 11:59pm ET.

Much like the October calendars, this kit will be inspired by all that is creepy and unsettling during the holiday season, such as dark, eerily silent snow covered forests, and frightening footsteps on your roof!

Kits will include 24 20g mini skeins, one full-sized 100g skein (both on our Tralala Sock Base), and a few extra goodies for you to enjoy, and will ship NO LATER than mid-November.

Don’t wait to order these kits, though. Spots are limited!

Hope to see you in the shop soon!
