New Stuff Coming Soon!

Filed under: Life,News — by SpinningYarnsOnline @ 8:06 am

Whew!  Where did that last week go??!!  It seems like this summer is just flying by.  My girls have their last week of camp this week.  They are both away on trips for most of the week.  They then have the last day of camp which is spent watching a dvd recap of the whole summer and lots of “I’ll miss you so much” tears.  All in all I think they both enjoyed their summer and now have a couple of weeks to regroup and get their heads into school mode.   We have so much to do during the 2 weeks between camp and school that I have no idea how we are going to get it all done.

I have been playing with dyes and testing some new colorways.  I have also been working on different dye methods.  Up until now, all our yarn has been hand painted.  It is a labor intensive process but I love the way the dye takes on a life of its own.  Each skein has its own depth and character.  I have been doing some research about other dye methods and have been working with a new sort of  semi solid that is accomplished by dyeing the skein of yarn and then re-dyeing numerous times until the dye exhausts.  You get great tonal differences that give an almost tweedy effect.  Yarn using this method will be up on the site in the next couple of weeks.  I have been loving the way they are coming out.

I am also working on a launch of a totally new product.  Can’t let you know what it is yet, but I am so excited about it.  A big announcement of the launch of the new product should be by the beginning of September.

Stay tuned, we’ve got a ton of great stuff that will be available soon!
