Huge Store Update!

  • Seven skeins of yarn from dark pink to light pink, peach in the middle, light green and aqua.
  • Four dark aqua, Berry and mustard color assigned pooling skeins.
  • Nightmare before Christmas themed sock yarn, purple, grey and black.
  • Nightmare before Christmas themed yarn, Sally Colors of aqua, hot pink, purple, black and orange.
  • Eight different fiber braids.
  • Bright mini skein bundles.

Hello all!

When I first started knitting, I desperately wanted to also learn to spin my own yarn… and like many who have come before me, that ultimately led to dyeing my own fiber to spin. For quite a while now I have wanted to bring hand-dyed fiber into the shop, and I’m thrilled to announce that we have recently released the first of many fiber colorways!

We have also just released our Summer Splash set, a stunning gradient set that brings an amazing burst of color to any project. Purchase as a set, or buy individual skeins à la carte!

Lastly, while summer is flying in by, we are working on our upcoming Halloween colors, as well as our Holiday Advents! The first two releases are in the shop, and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. For those The Nightmare Before Christmas fans, you should definitely take a look at our Jack and Sally colorways!

We can’t wait to show you what else is heading your way this summer! Make sure to follow us on Instagram @cashmereandcoconutsstore and definitely make sure to favorite our Etsy shop.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Fiberdog Fibers is now a Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em provider!

  • A braid of grey wool roving gathered by a thin black ribbon.
  • A braid of grey wool roving in the sun.
  • A braid of grey wool roving gathered in a spiral.
  • An unwashed grey fleece of a sheep.

Today I am proud to announce that I am now an official fiber provider for the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em initiative of The Livestock Conservancy (for more information go to rarewool.org)!

As you might already know, this initiative is an effort to get endangered breeds back into the minds and hands of fiber artists and I personally think it is a wonderful way to experience how different the wool of different sheep actually is.

So being a small part of this makes me very proud!

I currently offer Casper, a naturally-colored CVM/Romeldale roving, but I plan to add yarn as well as dyed versions of both roving and yarn in the future.

There is an option in the product listing for SE2SE participation, just make sure you also buy at least 4oz to qualify for your passport sticker!

As all of my products, I have created these roving braids from the raw fleece by hand, meaning I bought a fleece here in the US, washed it, picked it and carded it. You can certainly not say there is a lack of passion in my products for you!

One of the pictures above also shows the fleece itself and if you are curious about the sheep, her shepherd gave me a picture to use in the product listing.

  • Summer Spinning Box text on a blue geode background.
  • An image collage with a red, black and white shawl and skeins of purple and green yarn.

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!

Big Independence Day sale this weekend!

  • A gradient of purple yarn.

Hi!

If you have been curious about trying out my yarns and fibers, but want to spend as little money as possible on your first buy (don’t we all 😉 ), I might have the solution for you:

This weekend (Friday July 2nd to Sunday July 4th) there will be a big Independence Day Sale!

All you need to do is shop on my website and you’ll automatically receive these discounts on checkout:
orders over $100 will get 20% off
orders over $50 will get 15% off
all other orders will get 10% off

In case you don’t know me yet:
Hi, I’m Nat and I create spinning fibers and yarn from the raw fleece.
This means I buy raw fleeces that I then wash, pick, card, dye and spin for you.
My loyal mascot and canine supervisor Fiberdog Hestia is the inspiration for the company name and is there for all the steps of my creation process (and quite often appears on my social media). Unfortunately this also means that I do not recommend buying from me if you are allergic to dogs.

Shipping in the U.S. is free, as always.

However, if you are outside the U.S. and would like to order, please contact me through email, so we can figure out how to make that possible for you.

I hope to see you on my website soon and as always: enjoy your crafts!

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!)

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.

Explore over 100 indie yarn and fiber shops

With the changes in the marketplace, plenty of new indie shops have been opening on FiberCrafty. This means lots of gorgeous new listings and product options! Scroll through and just browse or use our filters to search for breed specific yarn or fiber, a yarn weight for that project you have been eyeing or if you just want something in purple.

Posted pictures correspond to the shops listed below!

Pen & Hook is one of our newer shops and has a really unique product line of hand dyed sari silk. It’s available in 12 colors and varying lengths. Just imagine all the unique ways this could be used from adding textured stripes, to a gorgeous statement cowl to wrapping gifts or creating jewelry. Lisa also has beautifully hand-dyed silk yarn listings.

The Spun Bunny shop has a variety of yarn in different fibers (yak, silk, Cashmere and more!) and weights (from lace to worsted), as well as different types of spinning fiber that range in preparations like braids, rolags, and silk brick. Marissa’s love of color really shows!

One of my favorite things about the APLCrafts Handmade shop is that many of the yarns can be used beautifully together. Alicia also offers great suggestions for coordinating yarns in each listing. She doesn’t always repeat her colorways so if you see something you like, don’t wait around.

Sharon mostly has yarn but also offers some fiber in her CabinWool shop as well. She uses a range of yarn bases including corriedale and has some really beautiful variegated options. Check out her beautiful “Kissin Cousins” sets – two coordinating skeins that can be purchased individually as well.

LizaDeeOriginals is another newer shop and each time I see one of her listings for yarn or fiber, it takes my breath away! Bobbie’s dye technique is unique and she also has some true, gradual color gradients.

Jacqui of Lowlander Yarn Studio has just started adding listings to her shop and she offers a luxurious yarn base that is perfect for shawls! It is a blend of BFL, silk and cashmere available in multiple tonal colors, inspired by nature.
