Fly high on a magic carpet or brave the prehistoric caves amongst the dinosaurs — this takes “places you knit” to a whole new level!! Unwrap a unique, new 20g mini skein with a handcrafted progress keeper by SamsTinyTrinkets every day for the week leading up to the first day of summer (June 21st)! On June 21st unwrap an extra special gift set including an exclusive Woolen Women Fibers sock set on our 80/20 Superwash Merino/nylon fingering-weight yarn (100g skein+20g mini), handcrafted fiber arts trinkets from SamsTinyTrinkets, an exclusive AggiePurlsByTheShore drawstring sock sack AND a homemade candle made by the Woolen Women.

Claire’s Cabinet | Women’s History Month

  • A collage including a photo of orange, purple, brown, green, blue and pink minis, a sheep lotion bar, a bag with mushrooms on it and a set of five herb and alchemical-inspired charms.
  • Mini skeins of orange, purple, brown, green, blue and pink yarn.
  • A sheep-shaped lotion bar.
  • A set of three progress keepers including Claire’s alchemy cabinet, lavender and a tonic of berries.
  • A bucket project bag with forest mushrooms on the fabric.
  • Assorted alchemy and herbalist inspired progress keepers including a book, a cabinet, a mortar and pestle, a tonic in a cup with berries and a vile of lavender.

Celebrating Women’s History Month, the Woolen Women have created “Claire’s Cabinet,” inspired by the brave Claire Beecham in Outlander. Pioneering medicine in both the past and the present, her journey through the stones in two timelines reminds us of both the struggles and the limitations women overcame to pave an ever-winding path of knowledge and contribution to the science and medical field.

Boxes include seven 20g minis and an adorable sheep lotion bar, with options to add on a project bucket bag, a variety of SamsTinyTrinkets -all hand made!

Being a scientist myself and now a full-time creative with a women-owned and operated handmade business, I find it is imperative we celebrate the history of women and all the broken glass ceilings over the years. I found that as I pursued and gained my doctorate, I felt a responsibility and a sense of hope and pride that I was a woman who was part of the ever-changing and growing science field. It gave me the courage to start my business and to reach for anything I wanted to do. Today I work with the two most inspiring women to me: first, my mommy, @aggiedecarloknits, who overcame many medical obstacles, raised children and now, despite pain and limitations, still creates and makes her beautiful bags. Second, my twin, who plays the many roles of mom, full-time creative and full-time business owner, wife and so much more. Together we are The Woolen Women and with each passing color, collection and podcast, I can feel history being made.

Celebrate women and all they do this Women’s History Month! Shop small, shop women-owned.

There is so much chaos to indie-dyed yarn. Sometimes it’s messy, unpredictable — and that makes the art absolutely wonderful. My science background has me experimenting in the dye studio to control that chaos. As a result, I’ve developed a true deep black that won’t terribly bleed and a true stark white that speaks brilliance. Woolenwomenfibers has developed a unique process to produce white wool on a variety of bases! The fiber keeps its integrity while revealing brilliant, shiny white underneath that creamy, natural un-dyed color. The black undergoes four processes of color, underlayed with three hues other than black to prevent saturation of full black dye in order to achieve a deep dark color that won’t bleed like a saturated black will!

They are one-of-a-kind processes I have created in my laboratory of color.

You can find these sets and much more on WoolenWomenFiber.com AND at our trunk show with The Knittincoop in Virginia the week of January 25th! Who’s going?! It’s going to be fantastic!
