It has been a very long time since we have changed the pricing on most of our garment/accessory type yarns. So…starting next Wednesday just about all of our garment yarns will be going up about 15% give or take a fudge here and there. We wouldn’t want to make things be 34.27 or some such nonsense. I like my numbers tidy where money is concerned. It makes thing easier to add them in my head.
And just because…. our super cute duo of the day. My friend Linda has two of the most dear grandchildren, Ty and Clara, they are just a joy! Ty loves all things fiber arts related and I believe when he is just a little bit older is going to take the knitting world by storm. He calls me Tina Newton in the dearest way that just about does me in. Both Ty and Clara came to our dye day and played. Ty has been before and had a very clear and distinct vision for his yarn. He named them even!! Mountain Rainbow and Midnight Sunset. See…he’s gifted! And his little sis Clara is no slouch either look at that pink she has there. She calls her colorway Happy. Ty thought maybe Pink before you Wink would be good name for hers. It’s a great name and now, thanks to dear Ty and Clara, in the beginning of the Fall season, I am going to have to come up with a Pink before you Wink colorway!
Thank you Linda for sharing these two wonderful souls with me!!! xoxo
Hey all, here is that list of colorways that we are taking down in the next few days that I promised last Friday. Sorry! Getting all my ducks and doc appts. lined up for the start of chemo has been kinda crazy! Ducks are so much easier to line up than doctors. ;0)
Ok without further ado here they are:
If you have any favorite fall blue moon colorways you’d like to see back just let us know in the comments.
We were expecting our shipment of Targhee Worsted last week and just found out that the whole process has been delayed about 4 weeks (to mid-September) because they didn’t feel that clip was ready. We are still waiting on the final word.
Our Targhee yarns are ranched, processed and milled here in the US, which we are pretty thrilled about for many reasons. Since they are ranched in Montana, that makes them pretty local to us, which in turn makes the foot print of this yarn not too hard on our planet and also supports our economy and the US textile industry. Because there are not a whole lot of Targhee sheep being raised right now, it’s a bit of a limited commodity. We think this yarn is pretty fabulous and want to make sure those of you who want it can get it as soon as it waltzes in the door. So, we are leaving it up on the website for purchase. If you purchase the Targhee Worsted (we have plenty of Targhee Bulky by the way) your purchase holds yarn for you and as soon as our order arrives we will dye it up and ship it out. We are doing it this way to assure our customers, wholesale and retail, get their beloved Targhee and to show the ranchers and mill that we love what they are doing!
If you place an order that has other yarns with your Targhee order we will of course ship those out before the Targhee.
Our yarn stores – Twisted in Portland, Oregon and Eat, Sleep, Knit in Georgia – both carry our Targhee Worsted and might have some in stock.
If you have any questions please do contact us.
Of course, this comes at a time where we all want to knit the fabulous Safra Shawl by Susanna IC in the new Fall Twist Collective. Luckily for us, the designer did a version in our equally as wonderful Silky Victoria. The Silk Victoria is the one on the left in Afternoon Delight and the Targhee worsted wrap is in Pond Scum!!
Thank you Twist Collective and Susanna for such lovely designs and photographs!
