We aren’t just celebrating Small Business Saturday — we celebrate small businesses every day! Over at the FiberCrafty Marketplace, we are having a full week long frenzy with plenty of our shops offering coupon codes, free shipping and other goodies!

In the meantime, let me tempt you with highlights from a few of our shops! Pictured above, in order.

Named after Marissa’s first bunny, The Spun Bunny specializes in beautiful handdyed yarn and fiber that come in a variety of fibers, bases and preparations. A beautiful selection from her studio in PA!

Several of our shops have AMAZING variety. Pixie Knit Designs is one of them. Based in NC, Tammie has handspun yarn, stitch markers and fiber for spinning.

Donna, based in NJ, owns LunaStitch which is another varied shop. She makes high quality project bags, has beautiful magnetic shawl pins (no holes!) and tools (fabulous stocking stuffers!)

The proprietress of My Grandma’s Garden is Lori of IL and she plays with clay. She has unique tools, buttons and stitch markers in her shop. She also has yarn keepers, handspun yarn and more! Well worth a look.

If you are part of any fandom, check out The Artful Princess! Sarah is based in GA and offers a large collection of exquisitely made project bags and stitch markers.

Serenity Artisans is the place to go for a luxury gift. Sue handcrafts stunning yarn bowls in PA from a variety of woods. These are an elegant example of functional art for fiber crafters.

Shop updates for Fall

New in the Western Sky Knits shop, I have some mohair/silk 1-ply lace weight skeins.

My skeins have 458 yards/419 meters to 50 grams. You probably know mohair yarn for the beautiful halo it creates on fabric. If you’ve picked up a fuzzy store-bought sweater that feels light as a cloud, chances are you’ve picked up a mohair or mohair blend garment.

Mohair comes from the Angora goat, and keeps you warm in cold temperatures, and wicks away moisture to keep you cool in the summer. The silk in this blend gives the yarn a bit of a sheen, and adds strength. All of these properties make it a great carry along yarn for many projects.

If you want to make something truly indulgent, try carrying along a strand of mohair with your yarn the next time you make socks or a hat! The mohair strand is thin and light, and won’t change your knitting guage, and will feel indulgent and warm next to the skin. The silk acts like nylon, creating a stronger, harder-wearing fabric.

Just added today, is a new single-ply DK-weight yarn. It is 100% Superwash Merino, and the dyes have a lovely bright quality on this base. Shown here in Mother Lode and Iris.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been active on the Indie Untangled blog and I’d like to reintroduce myself. Western Sky Knits is my small indie-owned yarn and fiber dyeing business. I live and work on a cattle ranch in Montana with 1,500 head of cattle, my husband and our three boys. I also knit, spin, and serve on the local education board. The winters are cold and harsh here. I’m just a California girl trying to stay warm in Montana!

So many indie dyers. One email.
