Spooky Holiday Advent-style Calendar preorders are here!

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!

BRAND NEW golden colorway!!

  • Skeins of golden yarn

Hello all,

I hope everyone is having a relaxing and enjoyable summer. Can you believe that it’s almost halfway through? I’m pretty sure that means it’s time to start thinking about fall and Rhinebeck knits!

We have a brand new completely versatile golden colorway to get you started on your projects.

Apothecary is our newest tonal golden hued yarn with hints of chestnut and sea blue, perfect for pairing with both warm and cool colors, or on it’s own for a more textured project.

See it paired with some of our other colorways in the photos above.

Apothecary will be debuting in the latest shop update at LambstringsYarn.com, along with a few restocked items.

As always, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me through the link provided.

Hope you can make it!

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!

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!

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.

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.

So many indie dyers. One email.
