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.

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”.

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.

Final Countdown to 5th Anniversary – December 24, 2019!

We’re down to the last week before celebrating our 5th Anniversary – it’s finally (almost) here! Just five short years ago, Twitchy Hands (that’s me, Keri) took over Colorsong Yarn, addi Needle Shop, and Kollage Needle Shop from the original owners, Bob and Nancy (of Bob and Nancy’s Services, if you remember way back when). It’s been such a fun and exciting ride!

To celebrate these 5 years, I’m holding a huge countdown sale! The last full week of each of the last three months of this year, October through December (plus the first week of January!), we’re putting huge selections of yarn on super sale. Each month will see deeper discounts! You’ll find the discounted yarns in our Clearance Corner, and just about every yarn base we carry is represented.

From now until midnight on January 10, you’ll find loads of yarns at 30% OFF the regular price, plus all of our discontinued yarn bases at 35% OFF. No coupon code is necessary. The discount applies to in-stock yarns only; it does not apply to backorders, special orders, or previous orders. PLUS, we’ve marked all of our addi Click Sets down to 25% OFF!

And as always – all domestic orders get FREE SHIPPING with no minimum purchase! All international orders over $100US also qualify for our free shipping offer!
