We’re extremely excited to (finally) announce a new sock yarn has been added to our collection – Fleece Artist Cottage Socks! This 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon blend is absolutely perfect for machine washable socks for the whole family. The construction is very clever – three plies made up of two plies each, for a total of 6 plies. This makes for a hard-wearing yarn with lots of cushy softness. You can find it on several brand new colorways, here.
We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of Hand Maiden Casbah Gradient Sets! The sets include 5 mini skeins, each weighing 56g, for a total of 280g of luscious Casbah – a fingering weight yarn with 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, and 10% Nylon. It’s been a customer favorite for years with a strong-wearing blend, fluffy softness, and exciting colors. Perfect for socks and shawls, this set lends itself to all of the exciting gradient patterns popping up in the knitting world. We’ve got a very limited number of the sets, so get your favorite while you can, here.
Please welcome the newest member of the Fleece Artist family – Front Country! This worsted weight delight is 100% machine washable Merino wool, which means it has excellent color depth and intensity and superb softness. The structure is a plush and puffy 2-ply, offering fun bounce and stitch definition. Front Country is the perfect everyday sweater yarn, and is just as great for hats, mittens, or other accessories. We just received 10 fresh “One Of A Kind” colorways in sweater quantities. You can find them all here.
As we approach the end of the year, we also approach the anniversary of Twitchy Hands! 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), at the very end of 2014 when they retired and moved on to warmer climes. This December 31 marks five years of Twitchy Hands, and I couldn’t be more excited.
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, 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 October 31, you’ll find loads of yarns at 20% 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.
And don’t forget – all domestic orders get FREE SHIPPING with no minimum purchase! All international orders over $75US also qualify for our free shipping offer through November 01. After that, the minimum for international orders to qualify will be $100.
We’re experiencing a cold snap in our neck of the woods, which makes me want to break out the Hand Maiden Cashmere 4-ply for a quick hat or cowl. It’s amazingly soft and delightfully warm for next-to-skin comfort. A single skein is plenty for a luxurious topper or neck warmer, and would make a fabulous gift – for a loved one or yourself! So I invite you all to enjoy 20% OFF all in-stock Cashmere 4-ply through Monday October 21; no coupon code necessary. What will YOU make?
We just love getting new boxes of Hand Maiden Sea Silk into the shop. It’s one of our best-sellers, and it’s easy to see why. The shine, the drape, the softness – it makes knitting (or crocheting) a real joy! We just received 17 colorways, 4 of which are brand new. And for the next week, enjoy 20% OFF on our entire collection (ends October 10, 2019)!
Merino Slim in Fauna
We’re super excited to announce that we’ve received a new batch of Fleece Artist Merino Slim! This 100% superwash Merino is a fingering weight single, and we love it for all the vibrant colorwork shawls that are popping up lately. We just restocked 10 colorways and brought on 4 brand new colorways – Fauna, Flora, Old Ferry Road, and Sedona. And to make it extra enticing, we’re offering 20% off now through October 02! Find your favorite colorways and savings here.
It’s been a while since we’ve posted here, and I’ll admit a bit of embarrassment about that! At the end of March, my longtime employee, Dixie, moved away to Chicago for a new adventure. And boy do I miss her! She was the one who kept this “New Arrivals” section up-to-date, and with her gone, I’ve seriously neglected it. I have a small excuse, my own New Arrival, but he’s growing quickly!
Right around the time Dixie was leaving, I was about 5 months pregnant, and starting to feel the exhaustion. That coupled with chasing around a toddler and training a new employee on all the various tasks, I let this blog languish. But I’m turning over a new leaf and will bring this section back to life! And I’m kicking it off with a HUGE SALE!
From now until the first day of Autumn, September 23, 2019, you can enjoy 20% OFF of select colorways in EVERY SINGLE YARN we carry! We’re hoping to make some room in our warehouse for exciting new colorways and new yarn bases heading our way in the next few months, so head on over to the Clearance Corner to check out the selection.
The discounted price only applies to in-stock, ready to ship yarn; backordered yarns will be the regular price. This sale is only good on new orders. As always, all domestic orders ship for free with no minimum purchase, and all international orders ship for free with a minimum purchase of $75US.
We hope you get some lovely additions to your yarn stash in the last few days of summer!
A fresh batch of Lady Godiva is here, and we love it! It’s the perfect blend of wool and silk, soft and plump with a gorgeous sheen. Check it out here!
