We have a delightful shop update this week with something every cat & dog lover can sink their teeth into!
Also, We’ve updated our website this week and there are lots of great new things to explore!
Come check us out!
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.
This is just a sampling of the shops and products on FiberCrafty! Do you follow us on Instagram? We help you stay in the loop with our newest listings. If you want to hear about sales and coupon codes, let us know!

KnitSpinQuilt is exited to announce the first of several collaborations with yarn dyers!
This very first kit is a collaboration with Yarn Over New York and Gannet Designs. Customize it and make it exactly what you want: you get a medium drawstring project bag, one or two skeins of fingering-weight yarn, a lace shawl pattern, and a stitch marker.
The project bag — a medium drawstring project bag sewn by Alisa of KnitSpinQuilt — is made from a fabric whose pattern was designed by Naomi of Gannet Designs. The lovely, lovely yarn is dyed by Jessie of Yarn Over New York.
You get to customize the kit in several ways. We’re offering it in three different colors (green, blue, and purple) and two different yarns: Times Square Sock (Merino/nylon) or Astoria (alpaca/Merino). Choose your color, choose your yarn base. Finally, choose whether you want one skein of yarn, or two skeins of yarn.
The kit comes with a pattern for a brand new shawl: the Semiramis Semicircular Shawl, designed by Alisa of KnitSpinQuilt using Gannet Designs lace patterns. You can make a shawlette with one skein of yarn, or a large shawl with two skeins. You’ll also get a custom matching stitch marker as a little bonus.
You can pre-order the kit at Yarn Over New York’s new website. Orders are capped at 30 kits, so hurry over!
You’ll receive a Ravelry download code for the pattern as part of your purchase. Don’t have Ravelry? We’ll print it and mail a physical copy of the pattern to you with the yarn — just make a note in your order.
Our June bag of the month will be LIVE this Friday June 29th!

Hot off the presses is the newest pattern: Savvy Slips! This striped triangle shawl is perfect for pairing your favorite odd skeins of indie dyed yarn together. Treat yourself to Savvy Slips at 50% off with no code needed through July 5th!
Out of This World Twirls in a rainbow of colors and Lilac and Golden Glow Round Pins enhance the already stunning selection of shawl pins. Whatever color you are knitting or crocheting there’s a shawl pin waiting to become the perfect finishing touch.
Affirmations Progress Keepers are both handy and inspirational. Use them to help show how much progress you’ve made in an hour, day, week, etc.
A very rare limited edition update: three shimmering shades Stitch Marker Sets are up for grabs while they last. Occasionally I take a break from all the shawl pin making to make stitch markers. Your needles and WIPs will thank you for using these lovely lightweight stitch markers. Each stitch marker has a large and a small end to fit multiple needle sizes well.
Over 200 indie dyers, crochet and knitting designers and notions makers have rallied together in an impromptu movement in response to a charity colourway by dyer Countess Ablaze that was plagiarised. Rather than naming and shaming the culprit, the Countess released the dye recipe and invited dyers to recreate their own versions of If I Want Exposure, I’ll Get My Tits Out, which initially raised over £3000 for Women’s Aid in April 2018.
The original colourway was dyed in response to misogyny the Countess experienced and being asked to give a significant amount of stock and teaching time in exchange for exposure. Dyers worldwide are releasing their versions of this iconic colourway on Sunday 1st July 2018 with money donated to charities of the participants choice. Designers are designing new patterns and rebranding existing ones and makers of bags, jewellery and stitch-markers are also involved with Tits themed items.
Find participating dyers and designers in this gallery.
Our Furry Friends are flooding the shop Friday at 9 a.m. Pacific time! We have cuddly kitties and cute little puggles! Some items are made and ready to ship — others are custom pre orders! The preorders will only be on sale until Tuesday, so make sure you act fast!
KnitSpinQuilt is celebrating the incipient summer of 2018 with woodland creatures! Hedgehogs and owls have simply stolen the show for this particular update.
These prints — especially the hedgehogs — were really popular at the Moms and Makers Market on May 12 in NYC. If you’re a fan, check the shop out ASAP!
Each bag is fully lined with white Kona Cotton fabric, and each color of top is cut and sewn in batches of four (for the medium bags) or two (for the large bags). When each color of these bags is gone, it’s gone until the next batch is sewn up, so grab them before this shop update sells out!
As always, 30% of the purchase price for everything you buy from KnitSpinQuilt is donated to the Hispanic Federation for Puerto Rico disaster relief efforts, which are still sorely needed even after all this time: The projected deadline for 100% restoration of power in Puerto Rico has passed, and restoration of power has really not been achieved.
Celebrities such as Lin Manuel Miranda (author and star of Hamilton) have been championing this cause: I figure it’s the least I can do to donate a bit to the cause of helping people get their homes and everyday lives back. See my blog for more information about Puerto Rico disaster relief with links to articles and additional reference posts.
Zombie Outbreak colors are now available on the website for pre-order through Sunday June 24, 2018 until 8 p.m. EDT. Outbreak Colors were dyed to create a three color fade that moves from light to dark and are aptly named Stages 1, 2, & 3. These three colors are available on several yarn bases and in large enough quantities for sweaters.
There is also the Zombie Knit Response Team- Full Survival Kit. This contain will have all three Outbreak colors dyed on my Snug fingering base along with an exclusive pouch filled with lots of knitting notions. And I only have a limited number of these kits available.
Zombie Outbreak items can be found in the pre-order collection on the website, just click on the yarn tab in the main menu. All pre-order from this collection will ship in late August 2013.
