Indie Untangled Exclusive Advent Openings

  • Blue and gold books, a pink flower and the text Dreaming of a classic Christmas yarn advent.
  • Books and bare yarn.
  • A circle of 25 richly colored mini skeins of yarn.
  • Blue mini skeins and a matching classic novel.
  • Rainbow mini skeins and matching classic novel.
  • Purple mini skeins and matching classic novel.

Our Christmas Advents have dropped and filled up quickly, but we saved 20 spots exclusively for Indie Untangled readers! This year we have two options — a brand new Advent inspired by covers of classic novels from the MacMillan Collector’s Library, and a reprint of last year’s advent inspired by the Chiltern Classics. If you love the idea of surprise, go with the former. If committing to a full advent without seeing the colors first gives you yarn anxiety, the second option is perfect for you!

There are options for paying up front and for splitting the cost into monthly payments. These will be live in our shop right as this newsletter drops and will close as soon as we fill the 20 spots we have available. Come celebrate your love of yarn and books with us! It’s the perfect way to treat yourself or someone you love.

Wool and Chocolate

  • Pink and purple speckled yarn with lemon yellow mini skeins and a matching chocolate bar.
  • Rich black cherry yarn with soft speckles and deep chocolate mini skeins and a matching chocolate bar.
  • Deep blue skeins of yarn paired with brightly speckled pink and grey mini skeins.
  • A box filled with numbered envelopes and a bar of chocolate.
  • Purple sock yarn speckled with green, blue and yellow and a fluffy skein of purple mohair yarn.
  • A skein of purple yarn speckled with bright splashes of green and pink and yellow twisted into a spiral.

At McMullin Fiber Co., we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day with the classics: chocolate and wool. Whether you’re celebrating self love or friend love or romantic love, or recovering from a breakup, we have sock sets and Valentine’s Day countdowns to treat yourself or someone special.

We have just three Valentine’s Day Countdowns left — that’s 14-90g mini skeins inspired by love ballads and breakup songs individually wrapped along with some delicious chocolate. That’s about 1,260 yards!

We also have three Valentine-inspired sock sets: two that come with gourmet chocolate that helped inspire the colorways, and one that’s just the yarn, please and thank you.

Tart & Soul is a gorgeous pink and purple speckled main color with a lemony miniskein. The accompanying chocolate is a dark and white chocolate truffle bar with raspberries, lemon and biscotti. We’ve done a lot of taste testing here at the studio to make sure it’s amazing and it is universally adored.

Rainier Cherry is a rich black cherry and chocolate main color with lots of subtle speckles and a rich black truffle miniskein. The chocolate is a dark chocolate truffle bar with cherries and pecans. The flavors in this one are subtle and delicious.

Bittersweet has one of last year’s bitter breakup songs — I Can’t Make You Love Me as the main color and a sweet cherry, pink and charcoal speckled miniskein. Ironically, this is the set with no chocolate.

Also hitting the shop Friday morning are a few extras from our Christmas boxes, including stunning yarn sets inspired by Monet’s Water Lily paintings.

The Classics Collection

  • Skeins of speckled yarn with floral covered copies of the books Madame Bovary and Treasure Island.

As we revealed our advent colors this season we had so many requests for full sized skeins that we picked 12 of our favorite colors for a spontaneous new collection. It’s not hard to see why they were such a hit – they’re based on some truly stunning book covers from the Chiltern Classics. Each colorway is inspired by the cover of a classic novel and is named accordingly. Friday January 7th at 3pm Eastern we’re opening up a small batch of pre-orders for these gorgeous colorways on some of our most popular bases. Posh Sock, Posh DK (both Merino/Cashmere/nylon blends), Fluff (mohair/silk) and Classic Sport and Worsted (100% SW Merino).

The colorways are Dracula, Jane Eyre, Persuasion, Wuthering Heights, The Secret Garden, Little Women, Madame Bovary, A Tale of Two Cities, Frankenstein, Treasure Island and Tess of the D’Urbervilles. We’re also launching our new Posh DK Halves with this collection – sets of 50g DK-weight mini skeins. These would be perfect for Wool & Pine’s new Sea Glass Sweater pattern coming out soon!

Feeling Sweet

  • Skeins of pink and purple yarn.

We’re preparing for Valentine’s Day with a shop update full of gorgeous new colorways, and opening just 6 spots in our February Fiber Gallery Club which will be inspired by the very cupid-day colors of John Singer Sargent’s painting Mrs. Hugh Hammersly. If you love love, or if you just love gorgeous rich colors, you’ll want to snag some skeins for yourself. Who says your favorite Valentine can’t come from you? Yarn last so much longer than flowers or chocolates!

Sheep Loves Me, Sheep Loves Me Not

  • Flowers surround a banner reading Sheep loves me, sheep loves me not.

We have a fun countdown for Valentine’s available for preorder now, and speaking of preorders — there are five spaces left in our Sweater Quantity Discounts for January, so if you’d like more than three skeins of either Northland or Graphite, you can preorder them at a significantly reduced rate.

But back to Valentine’s — we’re celebrating with a mini-skein countdown for makers who love love… at its best and worst! Inspired by some of our favorite love songs and breakup anthems. Each will be individually labeled with the name of the song that inspired it, and individually packaged so you’ll have one gorgeous gift of yarn to open each night as we count down 14 days to Valentine’s 2021. This package does not include a pattern, but does include some truly delicious chocolate, good for whether you’re celebrating the joys of love or eating your feelings, or you just like pretty yarn and chocolate.

If you just need yarn NOW, the shop has been stocked with new pretties and old favorites on several of our most popular bases and we have a special coupon code just for Indie Untangled readers: use the code INDIEU10 when checking out for $10 off your purchase.

A Special Indie Discount

  • Skeins of orange, purple and white yarn.

We have a special discount for our Indie Untangled friends this month – just use the code INDIEU at checkout for 20% off your entire order through the end of November. This includes the best price you’ll see all year on annual club subscriptions for 2021. We just opened up a small number of spots for new members. We have two clubs coming in 2021. The Fiber Gallery: a monthly club based on the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Choose light, heavy or a mix of our bases, and subscribers can opt in for one or two skeins of yarn each month. Our other club is the Literature Society. A quarterly mailing of yarns and goodies inspired by classic literature. Each box comes with three skeins of yarn on our most luxurious bases, plenty of treats and fiber crafting swag, and a special members only zoom call where we can talk about yarn, books, projects and have a few demos and other fun stuff. This package is guaranteed to cause mail carrier stalking.

The shop has been updated with lost of gorgeous yarns ready to ship, and a few dyed to order options too. As always, if you see a colorway you love that’s out of stock, just send us a note and we can create a custom listing and add your request to our schedule.

Sweater Weather

We’re excited to welcome back sweater weather with our amazing Sweater Quantity Discount. Since this will be our last SQD shipment of 2020, we’re offering TWO colorways at close to wholesale pricing.

Introducing Ink: a gorgeous rich navy blue, and Sunflower: a sunny golden yellow. Both are stunning in stockinette, but they also won’t compete with complex cables or lace. They even look great together in colorwork. These are preorders and ship in about 4-6 weeks.

Every couple of months we do a preorder and dedicate an entire week of dye studio time to a single colorway. Setting up each colorway tends to be our most labor intensive practice, so this streamlines our prep and dye time which allows us to offer a great discount on several bases. It’s a fantastic way to stock up for your fall and holiday knitting. Spaces are limited based on our capacity, so as soon as we reach our limit of what we can manage the listing will close.

We’ve also updated the shop with plenty of ready-to-ship options in new colorways and old favorites.
