We have offered our subscription boxes on a month to month bases through Etsy for some time, but now you can sign up for a monthly reoccurring subscription on our brand new 85/15 Sock base, exclusive to our monthly yarn club! Choose from either one or two skeins of our extra plush and soft yarn each month, on either fingering or DK-weight yarn! Below are some examples of what our boxes have looked like in the past!

Also new to the shop, we now offer fiber braids for spinning/felting! With over 20 brand new colorways to choose from, on our non-Superwash Merino base, we are sure you’ll find something you love!

Lastly, we have just released our Halloween Mini Skein Box! You’re sure to love this extra spooky mini set! Quantities are limited so grab yours while you can!

Hello everyone!

Cashmere & Coconuts is thrilled to announce we have just released several new and exciting products!

After the incredible success of our Holiday Advent Set, based on the Great British Baking Show, we have put together our very first Summer Knitting Box! Just like our Advent set, our Summer Box comes with 24 20g mini skeins, one full size 100g skein, each based on our summer theme of geodes, crystals and agates, as well as 1-2 small themed gifts. Each skein is on our 75/25 Sock base, which is an incredibly soft and yet durable Merino/nylon base. You also have the option to upgrade your box to either our MCN Sock base, or if you really want to capture that sparkle found in so many geodes and crystals, our Sparkle Sock base! No matter which base you choose, we promise you won’t be disappointed!

We also have launched our brand new Monthly Fiber Box, which will be based on a different theme each month. Orders are accepted until the 10th of each month, or until all spots are filled. Space is very limited, so make sure to grab your Fiber Box while you can!

We are pleased to announce that we have launched two new shawl kits, with patterns by the incredibly talented Ambah O’Brian! Her Lilli Pilli shawl is a particular favorite of ours, and you can choose between a variety of color ways to customize your perfect shawl!

Last, but certainly not least, our widely popular Outlander Sock Box is restarting again! For those who love the beauty of Scotland, Jamie Fraser’s accent (and kilt! Ahem!) and love to watch as Claire gets herself into one scrap after another, this box is for you! Each month you’ll receive one full size 100g skein, two coordinating mini skeins, and several small goodies that any Outlander fan would love to have! (Skeins shown in photo are examples of previous Outlander boxes, however this is a Mystery Box). All Outlander skeins stay exclusive to our Outlander Sock Box for a minimum of six months and will not be released before then.

One more nugget of awesomeness for you all! Cashmere & Coconuts is offering an exclusive discount only for Indie Untanged members! Use discount code INDIEUNTANGLED14 to save 14% off your orders from now until Valentines Day!

More to come next week!

Amy’s Trinket Shop… still growing

  • A pink robot stitch marker.

I opened Amy’s Trinket Shop in June of 2020. The endeavor continues to be a source of joy and excitement for me, and I love making trinkets, shopping for beads and charms to expand my designs and offerings, and exploring the fiber industry from this new angle! The support of friends, family, and fellow knitters all contribute to my enjoyment and success, and continue to make Amy’s Trinket Shop a labor of knitter-fueled love!

I sell direct through my Etsy shop, as well as through various consignment or wholesale relationships. For 2021, I look to keep growing as a small business, continue collaborating with other shops and businesses in the fiber industry, and continue producing more trinkets that bring smiles and joy to knitters in creative ways. More recently, I’ve been hard at work making a line of Valentine’s trinkets and have started working on themed designs for St. Patrick’s Day and Easter.

Please be sure to favorite Amy’s Trinket Shop for the latest updates and information on new products and designs. Custom orders are accepted and gift wrapping is available upon request. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Even more cases for interchangeble needles & notions

  • A brown leather case filled with knitting notions.
  • Brown leather cases.

I’m excited to share two new cases and a bit of re-branding! The Knitter’s Book Case is now called The Original Case, and is joined by two new designs, The Flip Case and The Stretch Case. All three are exclusively offered in leather, with a wool felt lining in the Flip Case, and are now listed for preorder, closing November 9. (They’ll ship in early December to arrive in time for the holidays in the USA and Canada.)

The Flip Case stores up to eight needle tips, and has two pockets for cables. I love this design, because it really is so flexible. It can lay flat as an add-on inside your Original Case and transform into a convenient needle wallet by folding over. Thanks to a simple elastic closure, the fold line can move depending on the length of the needles you store in it.

The Stretch Case is inspired by classic pencil cases that strap around binders and notebooks. I started working on this when I was using my Original Case on road trips (sigh, remember those?) I really wanted access to my notions without having to open the whole case up – plus it allows you to store some bulkier items that don’t fit as well in the interior pocket of the Original.

The Original is offered in my usual Dark Brown and Deep Black, and a special edition Red. And just for this batch, I’m offering a custom embossed monogram in the centre front panel.

Virtu-Wool Fiber Festival: Tricks and Treats

Join 22 of the best and brightest in the fiber industry for this two-day virtual fiber frolic. We will have vendors presenting everything from fiber and yarn to bags and stitch markers. Each vendor will have a 45-minute slot every hour on the hour to present their company to you. Each vender will be sharing with us some “tricks” of the trade. Whether it is introducing you to the animals that provide fiber or a dyeing demonstration, each hour will have something new and unique to share. Come learn how to wind a skein of yarn into a ball without a swift or ball winder! Watch a pottery demonstration. Come see something set on fire! And as an even more special “treat” the vendors have collaborated with a show color palette with special yarns and products available to coordinate your next project!

The date is this weekend, October 31-November 1 beginning at 10 a.m. Eastern time and running until 9 p.m. both days. We hope to see you there!
