30% Off Zambezi – Discontinued – 01 April, 2020

As sometimes happens, we have to say ‘Goodbye’ to an old favorite, and so we bid a fond farewell to Fleece Artist Zambezi. On one hand, it’s sad because this yarn has been a favorite for years to hold stranded with another yarn, providing a touch of softness and halo; or by itself in a gauzy, floating fabric. On the other hand, this is making room for a replacement that is even softer!

So while we wait for the replacement yarn to arrive, please enjoy 30% off our remaining collection of Zambezi.

This is a perfect yarn for the gorgeous Diaphanous Raglan by Jessie Mae. You’d need one skein for any size with the cap/short/flutter/ruffle sleeve options, one skein for the bishop/bell sleeve options up to size 1XL, and two skeins for the bishop/bell sleeve options from sizes 2XL-5XL. You can find her pattern here.

As always, domestic orders get FREE SHIPPING with no minimum purchase, as do international orders over $100US.

Making in March 10% Off Hand Maiden Yarns – March 18, 2020

As we all hunker down in our homes during this time of self-isolation, knitters, crocheters, weavers, and other fiber artists take the opportunity to turn to our craft(s). We find comfort in our stitches, strength in our rhythms, and resilience in our work. The difficulty of the unknown is soothed by the familiar and the beautiful as we bring our creations to life.

We’d like to offer 10% OFF all Hand Maiden yarns and kits through the end of March as our way of creating a little light in the storm. Enter MARCH2020 into the sale code box at check out to apply the discount; don’t forget to click “Recalculate”. The discount is good for all in-stock, ready to ship items, and only applies to new orders.

As always, all domestic orders receive free shipping with no minimum purchase, as do all international orders over $100US. You can find our collection of Hand Maiden here. And if you’re curious about our operations during the outbreak, please read our previous post.

We wish you all a safe and healthy isolation period. Now, go wash your hands!

COVID-19 Check-in – March 17, 2020

COVID-19 Check In! Everyone doing ok?

I wanted to check in and let you all know how we here at Colorsong Yarn/addi Needle Shop are handling operations in this developing outbreak. We take the potential threat very seriously, and are doing everything we can to keep our community, locally and at large, as safe as possible.

Our top priority is limiting our exposure to any other people. My family and I started self-isolating early, and have become very strict about limiting contact with others to what is absolutely necessary. I’ve given my right-hand woman, Amber, paid leave for the foreseeable future, and our social media maven, Brittany, already works remotely. Thus, I’m the only person in the office interacting with orders. Plus, we’ve arranged for all incoming/outgoing packages to be picked up/dropped off on our porch to limit contact even further.

We have an amazing one-woman cleaning crew who comes in after hours on a regular basis, and we’ve increased her visits this month, as well as our disinfecting regimen. And let me tell you, our hand-washing routine is robust!

We will continue to meet/exceed all local, state, and federal guidelines for self-isolation. We plan to continue business as usual as long as our distribution systems are functioning. So if you need any yarn or tools to keep you busy, we’re happy to help!

For myself, I’m working on this Nurtured Sweater by Andrea Mowry in Front Country by Fleece Artist; I’m on the second sleeve using the addi FlexiFlips XL. I’m hoping I get it done in time to wear it at least once before the weather is too warm. What are you working on?

As always, all addi products are 20% off MSRP when ordered through the website, and all domestic orders get free shipping with no minimum purchase; all international orders over $100US also ship free.
