Two Yarn Clubs to Swoon Over

  • A skein of purple and gray yarn with an accompanying art card.
  • A skein of orange, blue and green multicolored yarn and an art card.
  • A skein of soft blue and brown yarn and art card.
  • An artist's palette made up of yarn balls and the McMullin Fiber Co logo.
  • Three skeins of dark purple, red and green yarns with salt, chocolate, hand balm and highlighting tape.
  • Purple and green yarns, a cookie tin and flower press.

We’ve opened up a handful of spots in our two yarn clubs:

Literature Society — A quarterly luxury yarn box inspired by classic literature. Each themed box comes with three skeins of yarn in new colorways and lots of fun fiber swag. Boxes also include a card with background information about the author and the novel. The lineup for 2023 is as follows, January: Pride and Prejudice, April: Far From the Madding Crowd, July: A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and October: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. We use a variety of bases for this club, but you can choose to receive light bases (light fingering up to sport weight, mostly sock) heavy bases (sport up to bulky, mostly DK or worsted), or a mix of all the bases. In addition to a swoon-worthy package, each mailing also includes a Zoom book club meeting where we discuss the book, current WIPs and FOs, and play games with ridiculous prizes. We have a great time! We have annual pre-paid memberships, a you-pick-two option and quarterly subscriptions available. Indie Untangled readers can get a special discount price of 15% off with the coupon code: CLUBINDIE

Fiber Gallery is our monthly yarn mailing inspired by great works of art. The inspiration for our 2023 colorways will come from the world’s largest museum collection — the Louvre. Each month we’ll host a vote on which painting/masterpiece to choose. Packages come with a card that includes background on the artist and the inspiration piece. It is such a fun way to learn a little art history each month. You can choose to receive light, heavy or a mix of bases and can also elect to receive a second skein or “double dose” each month if you prefer making larger projects. This subscription is also available as an annual pre-paid membership, or as a monthly subscription. Indie Untangled readers can use the CLUBINDIE code for this club as well — and it will work on everything in the shop!

Big Sky Collection

  • A set of 12 mini skeins of yarn in multiple colors.
  • A circle of multicolored mini skeins of yarn.
  • A crochet swatch of light pink and blue variegated yarn.
  • Several skeins of deep green yarn.
  • A pink and beige shawl with skeins of yarn in similar colors.

Every time I go back to visit Wyoming I’m always surprised at how big the sky is, and then surprised I could forget. But there’s something about being there, where the empty land stretches as far as the eye can see, and the sky is the star of the show. Our fall Collection was inspired by the lands, but especially by the ever-changing skies of Yellowstone Country. The collection is open for preorders with several bases available in each of 12 glorious colorways. There are also mini-skein sets in our Squishy Sock base and half skein sets in our Posh DK base. This weekend only we have a special coupon code for Indie Untangled readers – 15INDIE15 – for 15% off your entire order.

A Christmas in July Gift

  • A gradient of mini skeins shifting from orange to black.
  • A set of 6 mini skeins in bright colors.
  • A set of 6 mini skeins in rich greens, browns and plums.
  • A sock set of beach inspired yarn and a deep blue mini.
  • A set of classic novels on a bed of yarn.
  • Blue and gold books, a pink flower and the text Dreaming of a Classic Christmas Yarn Advent.

We’re celebrating Christmas in July with three new mini-skein sets in holiday-inspired colors. And every purchase over $100 automatically comes with an extra yarn boost — a 25g mini skein of our Squishy Sock yarn. We try hard to plan out holiday colorways that work for other parts of the year too, so you don’t spend hours crafting something and then put it in a box for 11 months.

Our yarn elves have been busy this summer and we’re ahead of Advent schedule, so along with our holiday colors, and some other surprises, we’re opening 24 more Advent spots. We may have a few extras around the time we ship (because I’m always paranoid I’ll miscount and need more) but this will be our final preorder for Advents. It’s such a fun way to treat yourself or someone you love to a yarn fueled serotonin boost during a busy and sometimes difficult time of year.

This update goes live Friday morning at 10 a.m. Eastern.

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!
