TDF Fiber Boxes and Grab Bags

TDF Fiber Boxes are currently available for pre-order. You can leave notes in the comments or message me about colors to include or exclude. I welcome those comments as a way to customize your box. However, after I begin dyeing (hopefully next weekend), I will be less able to honor your special requests.

TDF Fiber Boxes are available in both the FiberCrafty shop and the Etsy shop.

Another special offer that I will begin this year is Grab Bags. Grab Bags are an assortment of yarns or fibers from my Studio. Each Grab Bag offer will be created around a central theme. Grab Bags offer a great opportunity to add some hand dyed/painted yarn or some fabulous fiber to your stash at a super discount (at least 15 below regular price and often times more). However, they are only available as a preorder and the preorder will only be available for a limited time.

The first Grab Bag is available in the FiberCrafty shop now. I have fallen in love with the Desert in Bloom colors, so I have two different options for this Grab Bag. The first option is put together with Tour De Sock in mind. It is all fingering or sock weight wool/nylon blend yarns. The second option is a Weavers Grab Bag created around the same color theme. Preorders will close on May 31, 2018 and orders will ship in June.

Watch future announcements for information on the next Grab Bag.

Spring in your Step!!

Stripe sock yarn… inspiration for my stripes is thinking about spring coming and thinking about it not getting here fast enough. As I am writing this there is a Noreaster storm hitting us and leaving us with a foot of snow! I am dreamimg of spring and the beautiful colors it brings us. As winter is winding down it is great to think about all the things spring brings. The Daffodills, Tulips, and Hyacinth will soon be coming up and everyone will be ready to get back out side in the fresh air.

I have been dyeing all kinds of fabulous fibers this winter and producing some new colors for customized Fades for customers. Also started making stripe Sock with the help from my math guru Husband. So much fun with color. Wish I could knit faster to create more colorful FOs!

Since I only sell at shows and to LYS you will only see all of my colorways and fibers at those locations. Check out my show & LYS locations on my website under the news and events page. If you own a shop and would like access contact me and I will provide you with a access code.

Show to start off the Fiber Season: Chancellor’s Sheep and Wool Showcase in Clermont, N.Y., on April 21st.

Blue skies, warm sunshine and birds singing…. I hope everyone had a wonderful winter and now…. On to spring!!!

Introducing Sandpiper Yarns

Sandpiper yarns is inspired by nature and the colors that surround us. My fiber is sourced from family farms, both domestic and abroad. I hand paint fleece roving and then spin it on my Ladybug wheel, all in my home, two blocks from the ocean on the south shore of Long Island. I choose many sheep breeds, including Merino, Blue Faced Leicester, Polwarth, Finn, Gotland, Icelandic, Corriedale and Targhee. Additionally, alpaca, llama, Tencel, silk and Angora may also find their way into my skeins.

My dyeing process combines hand mixing many colors and then overdyeing for rich saturation. Each small colorway batch is one-of-a-kind and produces between two to 10 skeins per batch.

All Sandpiper yarns are handspun. The spinning process is spontaneous —- deciding in the moment whether it will be bulky, worsted or in between! It is a meditative technique that allows me to be part of a sustainable cycle of turning fleece to garment that has endured for thousands of years!
