Winter Gift is here!

The last few weeks of the year are often stressful and very busy. You work hard to stay sane and keep everything in order and make sure everyone has a good time.

So why not treat yourself or a loved fiber enthusiast to something special these days?

For this I have created Winter Gift.

It is a surprise colorway, available both as fiber braid and handspun yarn. The drawing you see with this post is the color inspiration. As always this is handprocessed by me personally: I washed, picked, carded, dyed (and spun) every single one myself.
it is a 60% wool and 40% rayon (from bamboo) blend. The sheep who provided this wool is named Billie and is a BFL-Wensleydale-mix. I have yet to meet him in person, but the farm is local to me.

Winter Gift comes already wrapped as a gift. You simply open the shipping package and are ready to gift! Place this little treat for yourself under the tree, on the family gift pile, or just hand it to another crafty person without any effort!

However, supplies are limited, so make sure to head over to Fiberdog Fibers soon!

Check Out Our Churro Yarn + Support Navajo Weavers

  • Cream-colored yarn.

Navajo-Churro sheep are a distinct and beautiful breed. They come in an array of natural colors; have a heavy dual-coated fleece made up of a hairy overcoat and downy undercoat; and heads crowned with impressive, curved horns.

While most other domestic sheep breeds have been selected for white and soft fleeces, the Churro is valued for its diversity. There are breed standards. But they make room for diversity in fleece color and fleece texture. This is largely due to the influence of the Navajo/Diné people, who developed the breed over centuries and continue to do so to this day, prizing the hardy colored wool for weaving.

We’re big fans of color and texture, too, at Gothfarm Yarn. That’s why we are so excited to have 100% Navajo-Churro wool yarn in four natural and undyed colors.

Bone – a natural white, DK-weight yarn

Slate – a natural gray, DK-weight yarn

Apricot – a natural beige, worsted-weight yarn

Walnut – a natural brown, worsted-weight yarn (also available as a roving)

Each yarn is spun up in single-ply that blends both coats together.

The yarn and roving are “Shave ‘em to Save ‘em” eligible. Plus, for all of November, we’re donating 10% of each Navajo-Churro skein and roving sale to Diné be’ iiná, a non-profit that supports Navajo shepherds, weavers and wool workers.

On another note, “National Knit Your Own Sweater Month” is still going strong! Get 25% your entire order of six skeins or more (excluding the Churro yarn) with the checkout code “STOCKUP.” The offer expires midnight on Nov. 30.

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!

Halloween colorway is here!

  • Black and red yarn and fiber.

Happy Halloween!

October is nearing its end and with that comes one of my most favorite days of the year: Halloween!

This year I designed a new colorway just for this special day: “Beyond the Veil.”
It is available as both yarn and fiber.

They are both 100% wool (Corriedale cross) and in fact come from the same fleece. I washed, picked, carded, dizzed, dyed and spun it all personally, as always supervised by my shop mascot and canine supervisor Fiberdog Hestia. The fiber braids are 50g, the yarn 100g each.

In addition to this I also added a dyed-to-order service for fiber braids.

If you are curious about my process of creating yarn, I have created a blog post about it:

Have a spooky Halloween!
