Our January Sale is off to a great start!

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

Our month long sale began earlier this week and shoppers have been finding some great deals.  We wanted to share the details with you so that you wouldn’t miss out on the fun.

So far our 30% discount on our 2-ply fingering weight Sock Art yarns has been the biggest hit.  We are in the midst of transitioning to a 3-ply version of both yarns that will be available for sale later this spring.  As a result, we are discontinuing the 2-ply Forest and Meadow.

Forest’s blend of 70% Fine Western Wool and 30% TENCEL® Lyocell (a man made fiber created from wood pulp) lends it a distinct sparkle that brings out fancy stitch patterns. We thank the sheep and the trees for producing this lovely fiber!

Meadow is a blend of some of the rarest American-grown natural fibers, 50% super fine kid mohair and 50% Fine Western Wool (a cross between Rambouillet and Columbia sourced from herds along the Front Range of the Rockies). This yarn is elastic, warm and soft with a subtle luster. These hand painted skeins are a tribute to the farmers and animals that produce such excellent fleeces.

Our skeins are hand painted by a friend and local artist Melissa Johnson 5 at a time in a microwave on her back porch.  The colors are mouthwatering and we’ve found that many Spinnery fans want to use this yarn for more than just socks.  It is easy to envision working with this yarn for larger projects such as shawls and lightweight spring and summer knits.

We are also offering skeins of Pink Lilac Cotton Comfort at a remarkable 50% off.  This discontinued color has been a great favorite among knitters and crochet fans looking for skeins for baby knits, when the run of the mill pink or blue won’t do.

We also have a great deal on a small quantity of extra large unwashed skeins of Atlantis Mewesic. (Seen above in the Sabi Hat designed by Olga Buraya-Kefelian and knit up by Maureen as a holiday gift last month).

As it happens, a few of skeins of this yarn will be a future prize on BabyCocktail’s KAL that you may want to join.  Thea Colman has suggested pairing the yarn with her Bastille Cowl pattern. Yum.

These skeins include a whopping 280 yards of yarn (instead of the usual 180).  We are offering them at a 15% discount.  These larger skeins could be a great choice for crafters interested in working on larger projects with fewer ends to weave in.

We hope that you have time to visit our little shop before the end of the month.  You’ll find one-of-a-kind skeins in our selection there that are not available online.  We’re also offering all of our in-stock book titles at 20% off.  You may find it well worth a trip.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Weekend1Our 2-ply worsted Wonderfully Woolly has been discontinued to make room for our new yarn Weekend Wool, a limited selection is available now! The full line will be available in February. Many of the best loved colorways of Wonderfully Woolly along with some lovely new shades will be featured in this blend of 100% wool sourced from farms in New England and across the US.  The result is a lofty yet durable yarn with great stitch definition.  Many of our best loved colors Lichen, Poppy, Deep Lake, and Pumpkin appear again in this line along with lovely new dyed shades and harmonious naturals. We will be bringing this with us to Vogue Knitting Live! in New York City this weekend, make sure you stop by our booth and be among the first to check out this new yarn!

Another way to treat yourself and re-energize your knitting is to participate in the Sugar Season Knitting Retreat! Join us at the Saxtons River Inn in Saxtons, Vermont, March 22 – 24, for a relaxing weekend of knitting and companionship. Our featured teacher is Amy Herzog of Fit To Flatter fame, who will lead the group in an exploration of the tools you need to produce sweaters perfect for your figure every time you pick up the needles. There will also be plenty of time to explore the area, shop at our yarn store and to sit and knit. The price for the weekend ranges from $430 – $550, depending on the room, and includes the cost of your room, the workshops and meals for the weekend.

We look forward to hearing about your yarn purchases and project plans in our Ravelry group and Facebook page. You can also share your excitement with other Green Mountain Spinnery fans are already signed up for the retreat. We will see you there!
