Our Latest Sweater Quantity Discount is here!

  • Gray, purple and teal yarn with the words Sweater Quantity Discount.

We’ve just opened up signups for our July/August Sweater Quantity Discount colorway… Black Magic! It’s a gorgeous coal black with peeks of rich purples and teals. We are so excited to offer this option to make a hand-dyed garment more accessible no matter what size you are! Once every two months, we pick a fan favorite colorway and take pre-orders for quantities of three skeins or more. This allows us to spend a couple of days in the dye studio dedicated to one colorway, streamlining our process enough to offer a close to wholesale discount. We keep the listing open until we reach our capacity of what we can dye in a two days and they fill up quickly.

We also have eight spots left in our Halloween Advent – 13 Nights of Potions Class. 13 wicked minis to help you count down to Halloween!

The shop is stocked with lots of ready to ship lovelies too, including a variety of colorways on our newest base, Classic Merino Sport. It’s a springy soft 100% New Zealand Merino that is such a pleasure to work with.

Deep Sweater Quantity Discounts and Advent Signups

  • Blue and gray hand-dyed yarn and the words Sweater quantity discount.

Our lovely fans have chosen Rainy Days to be our May/June Sweater Quantity Discount colorway. This incredible discount is one of the ways we’re working to make our yarns more accessible to makers of every shape and size. Basically, it’s a crowd-funded almost wholesale discount for orders of three or more skeins with a huge variety of bases to choose from. One colorway, preordered by several people at once means we place a large order with our mills, and spend two days of our dyeing time on one colorway, which streamlines our usual small batch process. Signups are open now but will close as soon as we reach our two-day dyeing capacity. Last time it only took a couple of days! If you miss the sign-up window or Rainy Days isn’t for you, be sure to follow us on Instagram or subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to hear about (and help us choose) our next SQD colorway in July.

We also have a few spots open for our very first Advent Calendar, “Dreaming of a Classic Christmas” inspired by the Penguin Clothbound Classics collection. There’s even a monthly payment plan available for those who’d like to secure a spot, but spread the price out over a few months. It’s the perfect way to treat yourself or someone you love to a set of 24 minis and one full skein. Packages will ship out in mid-November so you’ll have it ready to begin on December 1st!

Spring Fling Giveaway and Sale

  • Skeins of yarn in pink, purple, gray and teal.
  • Purple, teal and gold yarn.

We’re having a spring cleaning sale and an awesome giveaway to go along with it! Prizes include a gorgeous circular needle wallet all the way from Argentina’s Joji & Co., a $100 shop credit, a $50 shop credit, and a stunning crochet hook from Furls along with some of our yarn so you can make something fun.

Stay tuned for information about the giveaway via Instagram. We’ll also have some discounted skeins and just listed our March/April Sweater Quantity discount skeins in our Triton color way. We realized a few months ago that we could crowd-source a close to wholesale discount if we offered one colorway at a time in sweater quantities. This way we place a bulk order from our suppliers, have a few major dye sessions dedicated to a single color, and we can offer a great discount that is perfect for sweaters and other larger garments. But spaces are limited so you’ll want to grab yours before they’re gone!

We’ll also have sign-ups open for our April Musee d’Orsay club, which will be inspired by a gorgeous Monet and include a truly decadent treat straight from France via our favorite local grocer/importer. (And yes, we definitely got some strange looks when everyone else was stocking up on TP for the apocalypse and we had a cart full of French chocolates. Priorities, am I right?)

If you love the impressionists (Monet, Cezanne, Renoir, etc) or just love pretty yarn, this club is for you! You can choose if you’d like to receive heavier yarns or lighter ones and if you’d prefer a single or two skeins each month for larger projects.

April Showers and May Flowers

  • Rust colored yarn.

We love this time of year, and it’s showing in our latest colorways! The shop is stocked with gorgeous rainy and floral colors on some of your favorite bases, plus a couple of limited-edition bases: Freckles, a Superwash Merino fingering with black tweed nepps, and SuperSilky, a 50/50 silk/Superwash Merino heavy fingering with the prettiest drape and shine, perfect for transition and summer shawls, sweaters, tees and tanks. We also have a gorgeous new colorway inspired by actress Molly Ringwald and all her amazing 80s heroines, comprised of soft peachy pinks and deep auburn oranges. It’s not part of a planned collection, but sometimes we make up colorways based on our Netflix binges — just because we can!

Plus, signups are now open for May’s installment of the Literature Society – the Count of Monte Cristo! Expect rich and mysterious colors on the yarn and buried treasure for your extra swag. You can opt for a light (light fingering-sport) or heavy (sport-bulky) base and upgrade to a double dose if you’d like an extra skein.

We’re also honoring the women you love this weekend on our Instagram with a giveaway, so be sure to stop by and give some love to the crafty ladies in your life!

Spring Adventures in Wonderland

  • A bag in floral fabric with skeins of pink and green yarn.

Hooray for spring! It’s like sweater weather part two around here — you can finally ditch the heavy overcoat, but still wear your knits before it gets too hot. Plus, we have two exciting spring collaborations to let you know about…

First, Amanda of Little Bitty Delights has created a stunning progress keeper for our April Club, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. We still have a handful of spots available, but once they’re gone they are gone! You can choose whether you’d prefer heavier or lighter yarn and if you’d like a single or double dose. The colorway is a surprise, but you can expect spring speckles inspired by Alice’s amazing adventures.

Second, we’ve joined forces with GingerRoots Bags to create a gorgeous spring set: a full-sized skein of sock yarn, a 90-yard mini skein for a pop of color and a coordinating project bag all created to celebrate the excitement of the shift from gloom to BLOOM! We have a very limited number of sets available, so be sure to grab yours quickly.

Something to Brighten Your Winter

Maybe it’s the recent constant drizzle we’ve had here in the Midwest, but something has us craving rainbows and bright cheery colors and our most recent dye session shows it! We’ve updated the shop with Rainbow Bright Minis which have a total yardage of just under 550. Perfect for color work, scrappy socks, scrappy shawls and blankets, or to have a collection of heel/toe pop colors handy for your next sock project.

We’ve also added our most recent Little Women-inspired colorway, Beth March. It’s inspired by soft pink kitten noses and hot house roses, with gentle speckles of Jo’s green and Marmee’s grey. We have a very limited number of skeins available. However, you’ll find plenty of bright color ways on fingering and bulky weights to help you limp through the deep winter months.
