New Sock Lines & Shop Update

  • A woman models pink to blue faded socks.

I’d like to introduce a few new sock lines, a new base to the SBY lineup for Spring 2020 and hugely discounted Sailing Sweater Kits! All are available in our next shop update April 5th at noon EDT with new additions to colourways — all prices in Canadian dollars which make shopping in USD a real bargain!

Introducing Deconstructed Fade Sock Sets – the idea for these came to me when I kept looking at prized skeins of yarn that were too pretty to knit with. What if I could take my SBY favourite colourways and have them knit into socks as they appear in the skeins — and to further the idea, take my favourite colourways and fade them into each other in perfectly matched socks? And there you have it – each set is 2x50gm (230yds/ each skein) skeins of 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon of perfectly matched fades — all you have to do is pick your favourite pattern and knit knit knit.

Second in the new sock line is Sojourn Self-Striping Socks – from 12-24 stripes these socks are fun with long colour runs and unexpected striping patterns. All sets come with a coordinating-but-not-perfectly-matched mini for cuffs, heels and toes to add further dimension to your socks! Sets come with 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon with 80gm/350yds of stripes and 20gm/90 yds of the mini.

Third in the sock lineup is Sole Mate Self-Striping Socks – these are my favourite pairings of variegated and semi-solids, striping together – all you have to do is knit, no more switching yarns every few rows, darning in ends, or getting your balls all tangled. Soul Mate colourways for our Sole Mate Socks! 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon, 465yds.

A new base and a quick favourite is the Mariner Mohair Merino Single – so soft, gorgeous halo, and all in one perfect fingering weight single. This yarn has drape, but stability for your favourite sock weight sweaters, the softness and halo of mohair and a sheen as if there was silk in it. 56% Superwash Merino/44% Kid mohair, 100gm/437 yards per skein in a sock/fingering weight. Available now on our website!

I’ve had two shows cancelled this season and wholesale orders delayed and cancelled. As a result, I’ve also loaded my show special to the website for order, now with dyed-to-order options to be included in the update this April 5th at noon EDT – the kits, with gorgeously soft 100% SW Merino, are severely discounted (starting at $62 off the regular price!) and include the Sailing Sweater pattern along with the yarn to make it!

With plenty of time to dye, my stocks are full and I have added over 150 new colors to my website (more fingering, worsted, & bulky this weekend). Please visit my website and read how with every on-line purchase I will be sending a check to your locally-owned and operated yarn shop.

The fiber community will stick together and will get through this.

Keep those hand busy,

Is Winter Over?

  • Neon speckled yarn.

Hello Friends!

This month over here at Pancake and Lulu, I have been working on having regular mini shop updates along with the release of weekly episodes of my new YouTube podcast. The podcast is going great and I have just recorded Episode 5. Thank you to all who have subscribed, watched, liked and commented! I wasn’t sure if or what it would become when I sat down to record that first episode, but now I have come to look forward to the weekly routine and the connection with the knitting podcast community. So, if you haven’t already, please check it out and sign up for my newsletter for the updates!

Each week, I have been making sure I have some new yarns to list (as well as old favorites). Currently in my shop I have a new colorful primary speckle on white called FUNFETTI. Also just listed is DARK FAIRY, which was a happy accident that I have decided to keep around for a while. I also released a new colorway called RASPBERRY TRUFFLE, which was one of my recent PLYarn Club colors of the month. It was so pretty, I wanted to make it available to all.

In knitting news, I finished my Love Note Sweater in time for Valentine’s Day! I created a kit using my LOVE LETTER colorway paired with my BONE Suri Silk and these are also available in my shop. I also knit up the Every Bit Cowl by Telly Bean Knits in my CAPPUCCINO colorway and added a bobble bind-off. There is a mini tutorial on how to do the bind-off in my latest YouTube episode.

It’s hard to believe that winter is almost over – it has been so mild here in New Jersey – I am still holding out that there will be one more snow!

xx,
Aimee

DyeSigner Alliance: Session 1, A Different Way to Yarn Club

Dyesigner Alliance promotion.

We’ve already had an amazing response to the first few weeks of Session 1 of the DyeSigner Alliance, but some of you may be wondering how this yarn club works:

Designers receive pay for every single member enrolled, just as they would when people purchase their designs off Ravelry! That means that the more people that enroll, the more benefit the amazing indie designer receives!

Dyers are paid at a much higher consignment rate rather than a wholesale rate for their work…meaning a kit/club event like this has a chance to be much more beneficial project after all their hard work than a traditional wholesale arrangement allows for.

Help Nutmeg Fiber Arts support the continued work of wonderful indie dyers and designers with our DyeSigner Alliance!!! Session 1 registration is open now until February 7th, and will ship out in early April to you!!!! Included in your kit are two skeins of Camellia Fiber Co. yarn, Dawn Henderson’s Original Design and a special gift from Nutmeg Fiber Arts!

For all the details, check out the full page listing below!

Introducing: The Wandering Flock

  • Hands hold up pastel skeins of yarn.

After leaving the world of fast fashion, I was determine to start a business that would be committed to sustainability. While becoming an indie dyer was not the immediate solution that came to mind, it was something I soon discovered gave me the outlet of creativity I craved so much that was lost after I stopped working in fashion.

I had always been a knitter, long before I started working in the world of fashion and always had trouble finding yarn in the exact shade I was hoping for, or patterns I was dying to knit. Having always been a product designer, the only natural solution was to just make it. I’ve always enjoyed the process of creating my own unique creations, so I almost exquisitely never knitted with any patterns but my own.

Finally, in the summer of 2019, I took a leap of faith and decided that I would start The Wandering Flock, a knitwear design studio and hand-dyed yarn line. At the same time, I also took a chance and submitted a couple of sweater designs to Pom Pom Quarterly. I never expected to hear back, but miraculously they choose one of my designs for their Winter 2019 issue, and gave me an opportunity to not only showcase my design, but my yarn as well.

While The Wandering Flock has only been around for three months, it has been an incredible journey, from appearing in Pom Pom to working with Indie Untangled and meeting knitters who have FOs knitted in my yarn!

Drawing from my experience in fashion, I approach dyeing with a lot of intention, and focus on the final product your creations. While a skein of yarn is where my process ends, I think about what you will make with it. My hope is to create a line of yarn and classic, yet contemporary, knitwear patterns that will fit into your everyday wardrobe.

I’m excited to announce that I will be presenting my line of yarn and patterns at the upcoming Vogue Knitting Live Marketplace in New York City (Booth 1101-1103). There you’ll get to experience my full line of yarn and see the sweater I designed for Pom Pom.
