Our new yarn base has launched! Preorder now!

About nine months ago, I began to explore possibilities for a cellulose based yarn here at Nutmeg Fiber Arts. From talking with shop owners, knitters, mills and more, I began to go through samples of possible combinations for the perfect addition to our Nutmeg Fibers family of yarn bases. Playing with dye on cellulose fibers for the first time was a big learning curve, and I wanted the final product to be soft and smooth, but not that roughness that 100% cotton can bring. Something that had a little more of something special in it to give a smoothness and lovely drape to the yarn. That’s where the linen came in. After lots of test knitting from myself and my amazing helper Young Mi Park, I settled on these two new beautiful bases: Meadow and Meadow Jr.

Both have a fiber content of 75% U.S. cotton (grown in Virginia on family farms with ethical practices) plus 25% French linen, of the finest quality. Meadow is a larger, 3-ply DK weight, while Meadow Jr. is a bit smaller, 2-ply and sock or sport weight.

I can’t wait to see some beautiful pieces being knit up in these! I’m thinking shawl, I’m thinking held double with our Retreat base… lots of ideas!!! Can’t wait!

And, as a special incentive to those of you on our Nutmeg Fiber Arts mailing list and in our Instagram community, we’re offering a preorder period from tonight at 6 p.m. CST until September 25 at midnight. Preordered skeins will be shipped 2-3 weeks after our order window closes, before the skeins are available to the general public!

We hope that you give a lot of love to this new base! Available in seven stunning colorways.

15% OFF Special this week!

15% OFF

FOR THIS FIRST WEEK OF JULY (7/1/19-7/5/19 at midnight) we are offering 15% off all yarn orders over $50.00!

Even though it’s probably super-hot outside, we want to get you your fibers for your upcoming projects! Summer is typically slow-season for Indie Dyers and that’s why some lovely folks have created Indie Dyer month as a way to show love for your favorite yarn companies even in the hot summertime months.

We want to show that we love all our customers also, though, by offering these special deals each week this month! Every Monday, then new Indie Dyer Month special will be announced. It will run through the Friday of that same week. Don’t forget great add-ons like Project Journals or Dye Booklets that can be on hand for last minute presents for makers in your life!

Can’t wait to get you all some lovely things in the mail! Let’s have fun celebrating all the Indie Dyers out there this July!

Online Indigo Workshop!

Register to participate in our Online Indigo Workshop, from wherever you are in the world, with the ability to ask questions during our live class session and also watch the recorded version of the class at your own pace after the live class session is over!

Pause when you need, fast forward when you need, ask questions in the comments if you aren’t able to watch it live! We want this to be a fun, lifelong learning and community-building event for everyone that chooses to participate.

In this online workshop, you’ll be learning:

-How to make indigo stock
-How to begin your first indigo vat
-How to dye fibers (wool, cotton and possibly silk) in your indigo vat
-How to troubleshoot with your vat

June 29th, 2019 at 11 a.m. CDT (6 p.m. in CEST/Sunday June 23rd, 4 a.m. KST and JST)

Nutmeg will be live streaming the class beginning at the time listed above for those that are registered! The class will be approximately 1 1/2 hours long, with time built in to answer questions from those of you that have them!

As we live stream, you’ll be able to pause when needed to follow along at your own pace. But also, the recorded version of our live class will be available shortly after the livestream ends for any of you that registered!

This means that if our CDT time zone isn’t convenient, you can still watch it anytime, anywhere and learn at your own pace! You will receive an non-expiring link to our class session to keep as a resource for you whenever you need it!

Class fee is $15 for individuals and $50 for group registration.
