Boxing Day Etsy Update on December 26th at 12pm (noon) EST! Link to Etsy shop here. The shop will appear empty until exactly noon on the 26th at which point it will be overflowing with yarn!
This update will feature $1 a skein shipping ($2 for overseas orders). I always do my best to catch any multiple orders and bundle them together to save on packaging and trips to the post office. With $1 a skein shipping there are no overcharges to refund so it saves me a lot of time in administrative tasks. Win-win! I am marking each item as being ready to ship in 3-4 weeks. I expect to have things out the door and on their way to their loving homes sooner than that but think it's wise to build in a little wiggle room.
So, here we are, just days away from Christmas (and Boxing Day!) and here I am, still dyeing and photographing One Of A Kind skeins for our annual Boxing Day Update! Since I suspect that there will be a few more batches to photograph and prep for listing right up until 11:59am on the 26th I do not have a big roundup of every single skein that will be available for you to preview this year.
There will be loads of small batches of our current permanent collection colourways on our non-permanent collection bases (last chance to nab these skeins at their current price!) I’m clearing out all of my shelves to make room for the new system that we’ll be implementing in the new year. As far as One Of A Kinds go we’ve focused on featuring the most popular past ooak colourways (Lotus, Luxe…) as well as some new OOAK's that I absolutely adore, in larger quantities to try and minimize cart jacking on those yarns, particularly in sweater quantities.
We’ll also have a bunch of mystery skein sets. I’ve put together 3-colour skein sets of fingering weight yarns in gorgeous groupings. Each set will include a skein of Cosmic Blue Label, Purple Label and Red Label - one of each base and each base a different colour (mostly our permanent collection colourways). Each set will be a surprise, but each will be made up of colourways that I would personally use in a shawl together. I’m envisioning these sets being awesome for shawls since there are so many beautiful 3 colour shawl patterns out there, or, you could of course knit 3 separate projects with them.
There will also be a tonne of Chunky in this update. I expect to have enough inventory listed to keep the Etsy shop stocked for a while!
With more regular Etsy updates on the docket for the new year I’m hoping that some of the pressure will be lifted for you shoppers and it will be a nice, pleasant shopping experience for all.
In one last little bit of housekeeping news I want to thank everyone who placed orders this month in preparation for our shifting gears in the new year. You've made for a very exciting December! We were overwhelmed in the best possible way by your reaction to our plans. We have been working hard to get all of your orders in the mail. There are still a few left and if you are waiting for your yarn please know that we are working on it and we truly appreciate your patience!
Happy Holidays everyone! See you in the New Year!
