Spooky October ‘Advent’ calendars are here!

Hello all!

The very first annual spooky October “Advent” calendar preorder is coming to the shop tonight, Friday June 7th at 5 p.m. Eastern Time! I am so excited to be able to offer these this year. If you like my usual moody dyeing style and colorways, then you’ll LOVE the new ones that I’m brewing up for this set. It’s all a mystery of course, but I can tell you they will be spooky and EPIC. I’m pulling inspiration from all things creepy and unsettling – this is going to be so much fun!

Each calendar will include 30 mini skeins (92 yds/20g each) and one full-sized skein on our Tralala Sock base (75/25 SW Merino, nylon, 4 ply, 463 yds/100g) along with a few extra little goodies!

Preorder listings will be open until Saturday June 22nd at 11:59 p.m. (two weeks).

All calendars will be shipped no later than mid-September, but could ship much earlier.

Please see the small disclaimer on the product for additional circumstances, i.e. if this is a gift, or if you plan to order additional skeins.

I hope to see you in the shop!

Navelli kit preorders are here!

  • A set of white yarn speckled with pink and purple and a dark purple skein.

Caitlin Hunter has done it again!!! We are so in love with her new design, the Navelli tee, the third installment of her Knitaly series, that we thought it would be nice to put together a few kits. We got so carried away, that we ended up with TWELVE possible Navelli tee color combos!

These kits will be listed as preorders on Saturday, May 11th at 10 a.m. Eastern. They will begin shipping on May 20th and continue into June.

Kits for all sizes will be available for preorder!

I hope to see you in the shop!

Sport and worsted weight yarns, plus a restock

  • A white skein of yarn in a spiral with the words Dye To Order above it.

Hi all!

We’ve been getting a lot of inquiries and requests for sport and worsted weight yarns: Will they be back? Will we do a custom order? The answer has always been yes, but I’ve decided to make it 100% easier for you to order these bases without the hassle of the email tag game!
We’ve added a “Dyed to Order” section to the shop for Tralala Sport and Ewetopia Worsted bases so you can get exactly what you want right away.

All you have to do is visit the shop and locate the main menu at the top of the screen (desktop) or the side bar (on your mobile device), click on “shop by” and select “dyed to order” (current processing times will be listed). Then you can choose your base and quantity to add to your cart. *Don’t forget to specify which colors you’d like to order in the “Special instructions for seller” box located in your shopping cart. It’s finally fast and easy!!!

We’ve also restocked the shop with some ready to ship skeins including Party Monster, Relax, It’s Just Magic, Little Miss Macabre and Annabel Lee. Look for these colorways on Sadie Singles, Tralala Sock and Ewetopia DK.

Brand new bulky base

Happy March, everyone!

We are so excited to introduce a brand new base to the Lambstrings Yarn family! Ewetopia Bulky will be added to the shop on Saturday, March 2nd at 10 a.m. EST! There will be 50 skeins available and ready to ship on 13 of your favorite colors (and one of mine) as well as a new colorway, “Party Monster.”

Ewetopia Bulky is a super soft 3ply Superwash Merino wool with 106 yards (97 meters), perfect for hats, mitts, and chunky cowls. And did I mention that it will work up super speedy? Yup, if you’re looking for a fast project yarn, this is it!

Brand new colorways, Mini sets, and a shop update!

Happy February all! We made it through the first month of the year and I think that’s cause for celebration, don’t you? How about a pretty yarn shop update?
Last month our new colorway (Birch) was about “new year, new beginnings, hope, and renewal.” This month, I’m applying that idea to dye pots, stepping out of my comfort zone color-wise, and improving on past creations. So, I’ve been hard at work here in the studio all week dyeing up some brand new colorways and revamping some old ones.

Our new colorways include Petrichor (minty aqua with speckles), Tall Tales (medium tan with nuetral woodsy speckles) and Buried Alive (dark grey brown with dark speckles). Shown above.

Colorways that got a face lift include Amethyst (cool purple gem tones) and Phantom (cool charcoal grey). Also shown above.

All five colorways are available and ready to ship on Saturday, February 2nd, 10 a.m. EST at LambstringsYarn.com on Sadie Singles, Tralala Sock, and Ewetopia DK bases.

We’ve also added Mini skein sets to the shop!

FINALLY, mini skeins sets are no longer limited to fiber festivals and fairs! These are sets of six mini skeins on our Tralala Sock base (92yds/skein, 552 yds total) put together in fun color combos by yours truly! Lots will be in the update, but they are mostly unique combos so make sure you act quickly.

The shop update will be Saturday, February 2nd at 10 a.m. ET. I hope you can make it!

Thank you, and have a great weekend!

New beginnings: shop update today!

I hope everyone is having a happy and healthy start to the new year!

Now is the time for new beginnings, hope and renewal, the start of the year, wouldn’t you agree? Birch is our newest colorway symbolizing just that. Birch has been used as a symbol of new beginnings (and more) in many cultures as it is the first tree to bloom in the spring. The bark is also said to have magical properties. I wanted to bring the idea of a new beginning into the new year instead of making a resolution this year. Thinking of change as a positive experience has always been a challenge for me, but moving to a new city for the first time has forced me to reevaluate my thought process on the matter and embrace a new beginning.

Birch is a very light feathery grey, speckled with black, browns, and greys, inspired by the bark of the birch tree.
Birch is now available on our ready-to-ship bases: Sadie Singles, Tralala Sock, and Ewetopia DK. Larger sweater quantities on these bases and worsted are available upon request.

Holiday Sock Club Pre-orders are here!!!

Lambstrings Yarn is doing a holiday sock club! Yup yup yup! I’m so excited to bring you not one, but TWO holiday inspired sock sets to choose from, Krampus and Saint Nick!

If you know me and my color style, you know these won’t be your typical traditional holiday colorways. They will be unique and moody as always! These will be mystery sets, only to be revealed upon they’re arrival to you (photo inspiration provided above).

Each set will come with one full skein of Tralala Sock (75/25 SW Merino, nylon, 463 yds) and two Tralala Sock mini skeins (92 yds) in contrasting heel/toe/cuff colorways.

You can find our sock club at LambstringsYarn.com at the top of the page under menu, shop by, Holiday Sock Club. They will be listed separately as “Krampus” and “Saint Nick,” so they will need to be added to your cart as such.

Pre-orders will open on Saturday, Nov. 10th at 10 a.m. ET and close Friday, Nov. 23rd at midnight ET. All orders will ship Dec. 1st-3rd.

I hope you can make it!

Sock Kits are back!!!

Hi everyone, and HAPPY SUMMER!

The hot weather is finally here, and you know what that means… it’s time to start your summer projects!

For me, a summer project means something lightweight, small and portable. Definitely something you can take to the park or on a long car trip to the beach, maybe even something you can work on while your catching some rays. Well, we’ve got you covered. Can we say SOCKS!!

YES, sock kits are returning to Lambstrings Yarn. You’ll get one full skein and one mini skein of Tralala Sock (75/25 Superwash Merino/nylon) in contrasting colors for heel/ toe/cuff contrast, enough yardage to make a large pair of adult socks and some to spare.

We’ve put together some really fun tropical summer-y inspired kits to help get you into your vacation mood, as well as some neutrals that will calm and relax.

These will be uploaded to the shop on Friday night, June 22nd at 7 p.m. Eastern, so I hope you can grab one then!

Thank you so much!

So many indie dyers. One email.
