Our Top Summer Picks!

  • A white t-shirt with a horned sheep that reads Gothfarm Yarn.

The summer heat is here! And while we are big believers in getting ahead on winter knitting in summer months, we get that a worsted, wool yarn can be a bit much!

With that in mind, we put together a list of our favorite summer products. They're perfect for hot days, summer outfits, and poolside projects.

Let me tell you a bit about each one!

1. Gothfarm Yarn Tshirt (S – 2XXL): Made from 100% cotton and screen-printed locally in Austin, Texas, our Gothfarm Yarn tshirts are a perfect way to show your love of indie yarn when out and about. Goes great with BBQs and camping trips.

2. Aten: Our yarn Aten is laceweight and made from 100% undyed Muga silk. The naturally golden silk catches the summer sun, adding a wonderful shine to your finished objects. Try carrying it along with cotton yarn to add a marled effect to your warm-weather knits.

3. Summer Clutch (pattern): This one is for the weavers! The Gothfarm Yarn Summer Clutch is a simple weaving pattern that uses a single skein of our yarn Kaolin on a cotton warp. This elegant clutch is great for casual outings or formal affairs. It's been my go-to bag for summer weddings for years!

4. Veggie Ivory Buttons (set of 4): These buttons are the perfect finishing touch on any handmade garment. The buttons are carved from tagua nuts, a material known as "vegetable ivory" due to its color and durability. You can keep the buttons creamy white or dye them whatever color you like.

5. Gothfarm Yarn tote bag: Use it to carry WIPs and/or beach towels. The tote is made from canvas and screen-printed locally in Austin, Texas.

6. Muskeg: We love summer sock knitting for its portability and ease. Our yarn Muskeg is one of our top sock picks due to its blend of Rambouillet Merino wool and mohair, which give the yarn durability and spring. Like all our yarns, Muskeg is undyed. The beautiful soil brown shade comes directly from the fiber. Looking for a lighter color? Try our yarn Arkose instead. It's the same weight, made from similar materials, and a blushing white hue.

That's it for now! Stay cool & knit/crochet/weave on.

New made-to-order bags

A collage of white bags and a color palette.

I am very happy and proud to present you the latest happy creations from our Atelier: made-to-order bags!

I have created a whole collections of six different bags that I will make to order to your own specifications and choices, in a striking palette of hand-dyed colours!

The materials: I use only natural materials. The bags are all made with organic cotton, cotton webbing, and metal gears.

The colour palette: inspired by Sicily, an Italian region close to my heart, all the colours are bold, striking and unique.

The dyes: I use fiber reactive dyes: minimal waste of water, sticking results, lasting over time and lightfast.

The prints: from linocut to screen-printing, all the prints I add to bags come from my own design and I print them with water based ink.

The bags: from small to huge, you can choose among different model of bags: choose the one that suits you best and I will make it for you in the colour you choose!

The customisations: from strap length to colours and different closures, you can really customise your bag to the smallest detail!

Every bag is accompanied by a video showing you how to make your choices and place an order.
I will be very happy to help you and guide you in your choices: fell free to contact me if you need any advice placing your order!

And last, but not least, I have a discount for you: 10€ off this weekend for your made to order bag(s) with code INDIE06

As all the bags are made to order, please be patient: I am a solo operation, and depending on the queue your bag will be ready in 1 to 3 weeks time.

Summery Shop Update This Friday

  • A gold zippered bag with flowers.

Exciting news! I have a shop update this Friday, May 28 at 5 p.m. EDT.

There will be a lot of one-off, one-of-a-kind bags that be for sale. I love using scraps, patched together to make up a bag. Super rewarding. You can expect lots of dots and shimmer in the small notion bags and some fun, bold colors together in the bigger bags, as well as the popular Ginkgo print.

I will also have preorders again as the last preorder update was a huge success. These will all be the large drawstring bags.

Hope you find a bag to fall in love with!
Happy crafting,
Crista

Boardwalk & Beaches

My twin Sami and I are reliving some cherished memories we spent on the Ocean City, NJ, boardwalk with our nanny. As soon as the weather warmed, we window shopped, rode the rides and had all the cotton candy and saltwater taffy we could eat!

We have brought nostalgia to life with this gorgeous collection and we hope you love it as much as we loved creating it!
We have sock sets, single skeins and three-skein fades available at woolenwomenfiber.com.
