The Great British Baking Show Yarn Club

“Ready, Set, Bake!”

Welcome to The Great British Baking Show Yarn Club! This is my happy watch, and I can’t tell you how many hours of this show I’ve knitted though. I just had to create a club around this wonderful baking show.

The full club will consist of 4 themed installments: Caramel Week, Sweet Breads Week, Victorian Week, and Dessert Week. All the colorways will be a surprise each quarter, but you can look to the mood boards to see the colors I will pull from for all the themes. This is such a fun club you can enjoy all year long, and I can’t wait to share it with you! All pretty yarn, and no soggy bottoms in sight!

Full Club Includes:

4 Skeins of Balsam Base-85% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, 15% nylon/ 452 yards/ 100 G/ Fingering

4 Little Bitty Delights Progress Keeper

1 Japanese Knot Project Bag

4 Surprises

This is a pre-order and the club will mail out mid October, January, April, and July.

Side note: You can purchase the individual club for the upcoming season as well if you would prefer to pick which installments you want to get. Everyone is different and I wanted give people multiple pay options.

*Last year’s 4 GBBS colorways are also available in the shop for a limited amount of time for anyone who would like to snag one or two up!

2021 Advents are here!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The first day of July can only mean one thing here at Forbidden Fiber Co – our Advent calendars go up for preorder! We work at these year-round to make sure it is the most fun box you open all year long.

Our 2021 Advent theme is Random Acts of Kindness. We feel that there can never be enough kindness in the world, and we want to do our part to spread it throughout our community. So accompanying each colorway (and each extra), will be a simple act of kindness that you can do for a friend, or even a stranger!

That said, we like to do our Advents a little differently. Instead of an Advent box with 24 (or 25) mini skeins of yarn, we like to shake it up a bit! First and foremost, we work with a knit and crochet designer to bring you an exclusive MKAL/MCAL pattern to go along with your yarn. It’s a little bit different each year, but this year is truly outstanding! We’re focusing on several smaller projects instead of one big wrap or shawl. The knitting patterns are designed by Afifa Knits, and the crochet patterns are designed by Katie Clark Crochet.

Our Advent Calendar this year features 25 wrapped gifts – 18 of them will contain a 25g skein of our Fortitude DK yarn (Superwash Merino), as well as a piece of this year’s MKAL/MCAL pattern. The other seven (7) packages are what we call “rest days,” where you have a chance to catch up on your project if you’ve fallen behind. December is a busy month and we want to make sure there’s no stress involved in this Mystery-along! Each “rest day” package will have a fun little extra for you to enjoy along with your stitching – some are knit/crochet related, and some are just fun! Most of them are handmade by our team at the FFC studio, and all of them are bigger and better than ever this year!

I truly think that this will be our best Advent Calendar yet. So preorder yours and join in the fun!

Brood X Cicadas are here!

A cicada stitch marker.

Have they arrived where you are? Whether they have or not, you can get some wee cicada stitch markers to help with your knitting and crocheting. Each cicada is hand sculpted using polymer clay and can be purchased with soldered rings, lobster claw clasps, or lever backs. They are a cute little memento of Brood X, but unlike the real thing – they won’t make a peep!

Boardwalk & Beaches

My twin Sami and I are reliving some cherished memories we spent on the Ocean City, NJ, boardwalk with our nanny. As soon as the weather warmed, we window shopped, rode the rides and had all the cotton candy and saltwater taffy we could eat!

We have brought nostalgia to life with this gorgeous collection and we hope you love it as much as we loved creating it!
We have sock sets, single skeins and three-skein fades available at woolenwomenfiber.com.

Spring Migration

  • Orange and blue bird stitch markers in a hand.

Spring migration is in full swing and the forests are coming alive with the vibrantly colored birds! Birds are my favorite markers to make and birding is one of my favorite activities, so I’m pleased to add some Baltimore Orioles to the shop. If Orioles aren’t your thing, there are plenty of other birds and I hope you’ll find a set that makes your heart sing! Markers are available on soldered rings, lobster claw clasps, and lever backs (new!).
