New Colors & Links

     Hi Kiddies, happy Tuesday!  Just wanted to give ya'll a heads up.  We are dyeing towards the end of this week as Pixie #1 is gone all of the following week.  
     Happy to paint more Find Your Fade (yarns only $90 vs $150-175 we've seen it listed for) Spice Market or any of the new colors.  We could totally work with you to get up a sweaters worth on say Pixie Maxy? Haven't seen hide nor hair of that one in some time now.  I'm working up a sweater in our new Hummer color way, Drops pattern 104-39 with a few changes. Adding a shawl collar and while there's a button band I don't seem to be fond of buttons.  Not sure what's happening there,,, afterthought buttons? Progress is shared on Instagram. We can paint this on any of our sport weight yarn's you'd like, love my new sweater, it's Fisherman's Rib, my first. Come knit with us.
     Speaking of the new color Hummer, it's now up and we have a collage of Violet Vale.  This is another Pixie #1 color, she's got this lovely method of blending things and everyone loves her color sense. Her English Cottage, Victorian Valentine and Seabreeze are always top sellers these days. They are so spring like that Peeps are lining up to snatch them as we pull them off the racks. We also dyed up a London Calling on the color strand sock.  It will pool silver, brown and black, 4 rows of each when knitting up socks. Wonder what it would do in a shawl? You can find these long strands on the Twist page.
     Oh and before I forget, new necklace available from the Fae Roses.  How about just a single rose on a real gold chain? That can happen, PM me for more details.
     Did you know we are on Instagram?  It's true, we are on there with contests of free stuff all the time, hop on over and check it out.  We are there and on Face Book as Yarn Fairy and the Pixies. Don't forget to pick up your personalized coco, tea, coffee mug from Cafe Press.
     Fae Yarn Club is now open for the next quarter.  This current one, we have come up with some really out of the park colors... not to be repeated.  So if your looking for YF OOAK, that's the place to pick it up. We also have some goodies in that club which aren't making it out to the general public.  Last months color was P!ink. I just love seeing how the different bases respond to all the colors we load up.  Yes these are all painted the same.  Depending on how well the dye takes (Mink on top) it will stick or wash out.

Official? & BIG discount

     When do you step into the big time? When you paint wholesale orders (several each year) or when you get a sign!?! HAHA yuppers, we have a sign for the front gate. Or is it defined by something else entirely?
     Through all of these items, I'm attempting to share the Fae Realm with you all.  What we think it should look like, the vibe and feel of it.  Above you can see wee Pixies fluttering about (ok so they are some kinda butterfly LOL). 
     And we are using the bookmarks for labels, well we are trying to... it's difficult with all the different bases we carry.  Then there's the gradient sets which sort of need a longer tag.  I did see a really nice one with just a logo on which which was real classy looking.  They put the white stickers on and it didn't look as mashup as ours have been looking. We have white labels on purple background. That's going to have to change.
     Anywho... we have these cards for fiber, makes it easy to just check the boxes and bag the roving up with the card. The front is just like the sign above and this is the back.
     And while I was at it, we got new business cards, course I had to change them again.  Oh and we got PENS! Love this pen, it's a Paragon, clickable, writes when you put it to paper, none of that having to pull the ink down. SQWEE!
     So I ask you, what's the "marker" for having "made it"? What with learning all these graphic skills and where to get all the images etc, it's made doing this so easy.  The only thing missing is the mugs now.  I really wanted to send ya'll the fixings for Tea with Kanuck... hum... no reason we can't still do this.  Head over to CafePress and get you a mug. I love the purple mushroom ones but there are others. We have enough tea and possibly enough hot chocolate to put them into all of the Kanuck orders. Sqwee,,, cause we love to spoil all ya'll.
     Back to winding off massive quantities of Imp Sport in the Hummer color.  One for an order, and another for myself.  I have to make a sweater of purple, blue and green with black all over!!! :-) 
      Yeah my hands, they HATE me, I love what we do though and can't seem help it. Anyone else for some deeply discounted yarn?  Imp Sports been discontinued so we bought a massive box full of cones from the mill.  This is the merino/nylon/cashmere which is so amazingly, next to the skin soft that you'll never want to take it off. I was thinking pants, skirts, undergarments LOL. We have a special going any yarn or fiber order (excluding kits-already discounted) over $100 gets to take an additional 25% off. This base normally sells for $21.50 but we can sell it to you for just $17.50 per 4 oz skein.  We can make any size skeins you'd like but I'd prefer to make 8 oz. Off to play, have a great day! 👼
