The Conifer Collective, Megan of Huck & Rae Fiber Studio and Meadow of Spindrift Fiber Boutique — have collaborated on a special project called the Heritage Breed Box. They worked with local shepherds to source and developed a blend of Navajo Churro fiber that was spun into DK-weight yarn at a local mill. Each dyer created one warm and one cool tonal color in a coordinating palette, and they left one skein un-dyed to let its natural hue shine.
Preorders for the Heritage Breed Box are open only through Monday, October 9 in each dyer’s shop. The quantities are very limited, so make sure to get your order in if you’d like to support this collaboration.
Jenna of Southern Skeins has opened up her Southern Stitch yarn subscription up to new members. Each installment includes hand-dyed yarn, a pattern, a handmade progress keeper and other goodies. Sign up now to get the October box.
Not only is it October in a couple of days, but it’s Socktober. Carolyn and Michelle of Olive & Two Ewe Studios are celebrating with special sock sets — a full skein and coordinating mini — on your choice of fingering-, DK- or worsted-weight yarn.
Meg of Megs & Co is celebrating the start of autumn, and her home state of New York, with a special line of Autumn in New York colorways on her special Ellis yarn. The yarn was 100% made in New York State, with wool produced on two local forms and milled at Battenkill Fibers.
Trisha of Yarn Jam has added lots of new “Oopsie Sets” to her website. These are OOAK skeins that turned out a bit different from how she intended.
