Is it Fall Yet?

Temps aren’t really dropping yet, but everything in the fiber world needs to be anticipated early since creating a garment stitch by stitch tends to take a little longer. Here at McMullin Fiber Co. we consider knitting a year-round sport, but there is something magical about snuggling into your favorite FOs and knitting in front of a crackling fire (or a great TV lineup — no judgement here!). Not only have we stocked the shop with new and old favorite colorways for fall, but we’ve also set up a special discount for our Indie Untangled friends. Use the code INDIE15 for 15% off your entire purchase, no minimums required.

Happy Fall!

Color for a cause

We are so excited to announce that we’ll be donating a portion of our sales to the Aruna Project for the next few months. You can learn more about this great non-profit at our website, but the bottom line is: they’re helping to free women in India from sexual slavery and then helping them gain new skills and confidence through fair employment and therapy so they don’t end up going back to being exploited.

Every skein purchased will result in a donation to this fantastic cause. It can be so easy to get overwhelmed by all the problems we see in the world, but we can make an impact even if it’s something small. We have gorgeous new colorways for fall and some super fun knitting accessories, too.

Anne of Green Gables Collection

I have a feeling you may be Kindred Spirits, so I’d like to share with you a collection of colorways inspired by Anne and the places and people of Avonlea. They’re available for a limited time in the shop on our Squishy (SW Merino/nylon) sock base and our Sublime Worsted (100% SW Merino single-ply) base. Together all six on fingering weight would create an incredible Goldfish Memory Shawl by Casapinka, and on worsted they’d make a gorgeous striped sweater. We’ll also have mini-skein sets on our Squishy sock base, perfect for cheerful striped socks or pops of color in heels and toes or giant scrappy blankets.

The colorways are (from left to right in the first image):
Island Welcome
Amethyst Confessions
Puffed Sleeves
October Mist
Carrots!
Gilbert Blythe

I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed putting them together!

Exclusive Indie Untagled Discount

We’re celebrating the end of a long winter with an exclusive discount just for Indie Untangled readers. Use the coupon code UNTANGLED20 for 20% off your purchase throughout the rest of May.

Right now we’re stocked with plenty of gorgeous singles and sock yarns for light easy beach knitting, and our Posh Skinny is the perfect weight for light transition sweaters like Boyland Knitworks’ Tegna. At a whopping 630 yards per skein you can knit up a small sweater with less than two hanks! The cashmere content makes it soft and airy. It’s spring sweater bliss.

Yarns, Etc.

Don’t you love a good pair of embroidery snips? I collect them and tend to keep a fancy pair in every knitting bag because they make me smile when I get to do exciting things like changing colors, or when I have to do tedious things like weave in ends.

We just added a whole lot of gorgeous colorways and adorable snips to the shop and just because it’s fun and because we can, we have a special offer going on. Our colorways Dusty Rose and Tres Bien are sultry and sophisticated and inspired by imaginary strolls along the Seine. So when you purchase a skein of each, we’ll send along a pair of Eiffel Tower snips. You’ll have a set for a perfectly Parisian project!

The inspiration for one of our most popular colorways, Rainy Days, is pretty self explanatory. When you purchase two skeins in this colorway on any base we’ll send along a pair of Big Ben snips since London gets more than their fair share of drizzle. Mr. McMullin proposed on a long walk in the rain, so rainy days always give me a reason to smile (and an excuse to stay inside and knit)!

This special offer lasts as long as the current dyed up stock does. But if you miss out, we’ll have plenty of extra snips for sale in the shop. Come take a peek and find something worthy of your crafting time.

Spring is Coming

It doesn’t quite feel like spring yet, but we know it is coming and we’re obsessing over the gorgeous colors that come with it!

The shop is full of springy beauties, and three fun Valentines Day collaborations with charm maker Little Bitty Delights. The sets are inspired by three famous couples because we love love. There’s Lucy and Ethel from “I love Lucy” (BFF love is important too — Happy Galentine’s Day!), Harry Burns and Sally Albright from “When Harry Met Sally,” and Wesley and Buttercup from “The Princess Bride.”

Celebrate the upcoming change in seasons with us! By the time you’ve finished whatever you’re casting on right now, spring should be just around the corner!

Lit Society Yarn Club

{{The cut off for January’s club shipment is Dec 31st. We only have 12 spaces left for Pride and Prejudice in January.}}

Treat yourself or someone you love to a luxury literary yarn package each month. (If the subscription is a gift, let us know! We can ship the recipient a special card detailing what to expect so they can get excited for their first shipment!)

This yarn club is based on some of our favorite classic novels, it will be all new colorways inspired by the books listed below. Memberships are available for 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. The longer the membership you buy, the greater the savings. If you’d like 2 skeins of each colorway, pick “Double Dose” when you’re checking out. That gives you the same swag but double the yarn. Colorways will be exclusive to the club for at least 6 months, and if we’re inspired to cook up additional colorways inspired by the book members get first crack at them at a discounted price.

This season of the McMullin Fiber Co. Literary Society begins January 2018 and ends December 2018. Yarn will be mailed on or about the 15th of each month and members will receive lots of extra goodies over the course of the year, like stitch markers, project bags, knitting swag, etc. It’s like getting an amazing swap package in the mail without scrambling to put one together yourself! There will be a mix of our base yarns with tonal semi-solids, kettle-dyed yarns and lots of gorgeous speckles. You choose if you want light yarns (light fingering up to sport weight) or heavy yarns (sport weight up to bulky — mostly worsted weight).
Here’s the schedule:

Jan: Pride & Prejudice
Feb: The Hound of the Baskervilles
Mar: The Hobbit
Apr: The Secret Garden
May: Anne of Green Gables
Jun: The Old Man and the Sea
Jul: The Great Gatsby
Aug: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
Sep: To Kill a Mockingbird
Oct: Jane Eyre
Nov: Gone With the Wind
Dec: Little Women

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I pick and choose which months I want?
A: Yes. You can either buy a one month membership for each month that you want, or if you want the savings of the longer term memberships you can sign up for 3 or 6 months and list in the notes to seller which months you want (they don’t have to be a consecutive 3 or 6 months).

Q: What if I decide to extend my membership?
A: You can do that at any time by purchasing another membership from the shop. Unfortunately if you decide to add 3 months to a 3 month membership, you won’t get the same savings of purchasing a 6 month membership up front.

Socktoberfest Sale

Here’s how Socktoberfest works:

McMullin Fiber Co. is celebrating Socktober with a Socktoberfest sale and giveaway!

First – you get 25% off your purchase. The entire shop is on sale through October 31st. Fade sets, minis, Merino/Cashmere/nylon blends, so much fibery goodness.

Next, for every individual item you purchase, you get an entry into one of our giveaways. Let us know in the notes to seller how you would like to split up your entries: [A] 3 months of Lit Society yarn club (value $99), [B] Ball winder and swift (value $110), or [C] and [D] two fiber craft care packages with yarn and other fiber loving accessories (est. value $60/ea). Yarn club signups count as one item per month purchased (a 12 month subscription = 12 entries!). Multiple skein sets count for as many skeins in the bundle (mini sets count as one).
