Harry Potter Inspired Advent Calendars Available

I am making a limited number of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar.

So what will be in these? Each pack will be 12 small packages, one larger package and a couple smaller, non-fiber surprises. Each of the smaller packages will have a different “flavor” Bertie Botts inside. You will receive approximately 2 oz. of botts and approximately 3 oz. of custom blend roving for a total of 5 oz. of fiber. This batch of botts will all have Romeldale/CVM wool from my farm and Angelina (sparkle), plus some other luxury fibers. The additional luxury fiber will vary from “flavor” to “flavor” and may include crossbred wool from my farm, bamboo, sari silk, Merino wool, Corriedale wool or Shetland wool.

I am shooting for 12 distinct “flavors,” a different “flavor” for each day. The larger package will be 3 oz. of small batch, custom blend roving inspired by the world of Harry Potter. The roving will contain Romeldale/CVM wool from my farm and Angelina along with luxury add-ins.

See the Etsy shop for complete details.

Hogsmead Treat Bags Preorder

Hogsmead Treat Bag Preorder

A Halloween Fiber Treat Inspired by the Candy and Sweets of the Harry Potter Series

Harry Potter and fellow Hogwarts students looked forward to the Hogsmead Weekends. Hogsmead Weekends were designated weekends throughout the year when 3rd year and above students with signed consent forms could visit and shop in the nearby village of Hogsmead. A favorite shop was Honeydukes, the candy and sweets shop. Treat bags are limited edition fiber assortments containing a combination of batts, smidgens, and custom blend roving inspired by the candy and sweets in the Harry Potter series.

These treat bags will be similar to the Hogsmead Weekends Fiber Club I have had in the past. However, this is a one time release and while I may revisit inspiration candies used before, the fibers will be all new for this release and not remakes of past colorways.

These are available as a preorder only. Treat Bags will ship the first to mid part of October.

Each Treat Bag will contain an assortment of 6 oz of fiber, plus some extras from the studio. One extra that is already in the works is a special batch of handmade soap. The soap is small batch, cold process, and unscented, but created especially for this Treat Bag.

This fiber assortment will contain wool from my farm with luxury add-ins. The wool from my farm may include Purebred Romeldale/CVM wool, Registered American Gotland wool and/or crossbred wool.

These Treat Bags have Angelina (sparkle). If you would like to order one without sparkle, please message me with that request at the time of your purchase.

Orders close September 20.

Also, during the month of August, use the coupon code “FallSale” for 10% off any purchase in my fibercrafty shop, including the Treat Bag Preorder.

TDF Fiber Boxes and Grab Bags

TDF Fiber Boxes are currently available for pre-order. You can leave notes in the comments or message me about colors to include or exclude. I welcome those comments as a way to customize your box. However, after I begin dyeing (hopefully next weekend), I will be less able to honor your special requests.

TDF Fiber Boxes are available in both the FiberCrafty shop and the Etsy shop.

Another special offer that I will begin this year is Grab Bags. Grab Bags are an assortment of yarns or fibers from my Studio. Each Grab Bag offer will be created around a central theme. Grab Bags offer a great opportunity to add some hand dyed/painted yarn or some fabulous fiber to your stash at a super discount (at least 15 below regular price and often times more). However, they are only available as a preorder and the preorder will only be available for a limited time.

The first Grab Bag is available in the FiberCrafty shop now. I have fallen in love with the Desert in Bloom colors, so I have two different options for this Grab Bag. The first option is put together with Tour De Sock in mind. It is all fingering or sock weight wool/nylon blend yarns. The second option is a Weavers Grab Bag created around the same color theme. Preorders will close on May 31, 2018 and orders will ship in June.

Watch future announcements for information on the next Grab Bag.

Wild Hair Studio Shop Update

Wild Hair Studio is a small family farm raising Purebred Romeldale/CVM sheep, Registered Gotland sheep and crossbred sheep. Our fiber studio began and continues as an extension of the farm. The fiber studio allows us to pursue our creative fiber artist interest and offer batts, smidgens, art batts, and other fiber goodies which feature the fiber from our farm. We focus on creating batts, smidgens, and other fiber goodies which handle and spins wonderfully.

So many indie dyers. One email.
