Fiber Coven – A Patreon for ‘Yarn Witches’

  • Hands holding a jar of brightly colored yarn balls.

We’re a coven of two yarn witches trying to craft fiber magic. It’s a long distance coven, so we thought we’d open it up to yarn witches across the globe so we can spread our black magics far and wide.

Who Are We?
Emily O’Brien of Kitty With a Cupcake – Knitwear designer, podcast host, generally crafty AF.
Lauren Brien-Wooster of Valkyrie Fibers – Yarn dyer, maker of foods, creative boss witch.

We love collaborating together to make hand-dyed yarn and indie patterns that were born to be together.

Why Fiber Coven?
We’ve both broken into this weird and wonderful little world of fiber and we’d love to share our tips and experience with those who are looking to do the same. This is a space for fans who love our work and want more, aspiring fiber artists and curious yarn alchemists who want to see behind the scenes of what makes an indie fiber business tick.

What can I expect from Fiber Coven?
We will be sharing sneak peaks and behind the scenes content to our Inner Sanctum Patrons about our dyeing and design work. We will also be releasing weekly exclusive blog posts. These blog posts may feature magic such as tutorials, techniques, ideas, bujo layouts, recipes, homesteading tips, business knowledge and whatever other tinctures and potions we come up with! We have a Discord forum for patrons to chat amongst themselves and with us. We also are releasing weekly Office Hours videos where Lauren and Emily chat about their collaborations and projects via video. Exclusive patron only MKALs are coming!

Fiber Coven is committed to giving 10% of our proceeds each month to the cause/charity of our choice, prioritizing marginalized voices.

Come experience a new kind of fiber show, one that comes straight to your house!

Meet Gothfarm Yarn: Undyed yarn, natural colors, unique fiber blends

  • Dark gray yarn.

Hi everyone! This is Gothfarm Yarn’s first post on Indie Untangled. We’re a small yarn business based in Austin, Texas. Let me tell you more about us.

1. We don’t use dyes or synthetic fibers.

We embrace the black sheep at Gothfarm — and all the other colors too! All of our yarns are made from blends of naturally-colored fibers. That means the colors you see come directly from the animals or plants that produced it. We love the earthy color palettes the fibers create. Using natural hues also means that you don’t have to worry about colors fading or bleeding.

2. We depend on rare and uncommon sheep breeds — and other animals, too.

Most commercially produced wool is white. To create our yarns, we depend on a wide range of sheep breeds that produce colored fleeces. We also use fiber from other unique fiber fauna, including Angora goats, Huacaya alpacas, and muga silkworms. Check out the Fauna page on our website to learn more!

3. We’re all about texture.

Different fibers have different feels. Each of our yarns has a different texture, as well as color, that relates back to its unique fiber blend. Interested in trying something out? Send us an email for a free sample.

4. We buy fiber from small producers, and work with small mills.

Small farms make what we do possible. They are the drivers of preserving the rare and uncommon breeds that we use in our yarn. We rely on small mills to process our custom blends.

5. We’re more than just yarn.

We have roving, patterns, and cool accessories like vegetable ivory buttons and logo-branded tees. Check out our shop to see it all!

That’s it for now! Check back next month for our next post!

New Sock Lines & Shop Update

  • A woman models pink to blue faded socks.
  • Socks in a pink to blue fade.

I’d like to introduce a few new sock lines, a new base to the SBY lineup for Spring 2020 and hugely discounted Sailing Sweater Kits! All are available in our next shop update April 5th at noon EDT with new additions to colourways — all prices in Canadian dollars which make shopping in USD a real bargain!

Introducing Deconstructed Fade Sock Sets – the idea for these came to me when I kept looking at prized skeins of yarn that were too pretty to knit with. What if I could take my SBY favourite colourways and have them knit into socks as they appear in the skeins — and to further the idea, take my favourite colourways and fade them into each other in perfectly matched socks? And there you have it – each set is 2x50gm (230yds/ each skein) skeins of 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon of perfectly matched fades — all you have to do is pick your favourite pattern and knit knit knit.

Second in the new sock line is Sojourn Self-Striping Socks – from 12-24 stripes these socks are fun with long colour runs and unexpected striping patterns. All sets come with a coordinating-but-not-perfectly-matched mini for cuffs, heels and toes to add further dimension to your socks! Sets come with 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon with 80gm/350yds of stripes and 20gm/90 yds of the mini.

Third in the sock lineup is Sole Mate Self-Striping Socks – these are my favourite pairings of variegated and semi-solids, striping together – all you have to do is knit, no more switching yarns every few rows, darning in ends, or getting your balls all tangled. Soul Mate colourways for our Sole Mate Socks! 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon, 465yds.

A new base and a quick favourite is the Mariner Mohair Merino Single – so soft, gorgeous halo, and all in one perfect fingering weight single. This yarn has drape, but stability for your favourite sock weight sweaters, the softness and halo of mohair and a sheen as if there was silk in it. 56% Superwash Merino/44% Kid mohair, 100gm/437 yards per skein in a sock/fingering weight. Available now on our website!

I’ve had two shows cancelled this season and wholesale orders delayed and cancelled. As a result, I’ve also loaded my show special to the website for order, now with dyed-to-order options to be included in the update this April 5th at noon EDT – the kits, with gorgeously soft 100% SW Merino, are severely discounted (starting at $62 off the regular price!) and include the Sailing Sweater pattern along with the yarn to make it!

WKNC Yarns is helping to support local yarn shops across America

A wall of colorful yarn.

With plenty of time to dye, my stocks are full and I have added over 150 new colors to my website (more fingering, worsted, & bulky this weekend). Please visit my website and read how with every on-line purchase I will be sending a check to your locally-owned and operated yarn shop.

The fiber community will stick together and will get through this.

Keep those hand busy,
Terri
