Rustic Rainbow Yarn (Preorder) - DY-17-01 This is the pre-order for a 100 gram skein of Rustic Rainbow yarn. This yarn is a 100% wool, fingering-weight, three-ply with one ply in natural, one ply in tan and one ply in dark brown, then dyed in a self-striping rainbow colorway. The yarn is not against your skin soft, but has a nice, rustic feel with a lovely halo when washed. As an FYI, I have washed a swatch of this yarn in the washing machine with cold water and dried it in the dryer with medium heat and there was no shrinkage at all - it just bloomed into a lovely, bouncy fabric with a wonderful halo. I think it would make very warm mittens or a lovely shawl. Available Qty: 26 Price: $26.00

Thank you everyone who attended The Fiber Expo in Ann Arbor, Michigan, this past weekend. You guys made this a very fun festival and we cannot wait to see you again next October.
I have updated the inventory in the shop, but I will give some warning. Some that are marked as Sold Out may reappear after November 5th. The reason is that we have less than 4 ounces and we need to weigh exactly what is left so I can drop the units for sale from 4 ounces down to the individual ounces that we have remaining. If there is anything specific you are looking for that says Sold Out, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask. We will check the stock and let you know if any is left and how much.
Sandy and I will be vending at Yellow Springs this weekend (Sept 17 & 18), so the shop will go offline beginning Thursday, September 15th. If there is anything you know you want and want to make sure you can get it, please order it before the 15th. As with all of the fiber fairs we attend, we expect to sell out of quite a bit of the fiber we have.
