Big announcement you guys! There will be an Etsy Update on Monday at 12pm (noon) EST featuring a brand new base: introducing TFA PureWash Fingering! If you haven't yet heard about our PureWash Base you can read all about it here. In a nutshell, TFA PureWash is our custom made line of eco-friendly, organic, washable wool yarns. We started our PureWash adventures with DK and Worsted weight offerings and are excited to be adding to it with a 100% merino fingering weight. 

 New! TFA PureWash fingering in a wide range of colours!

Developing this new line of yarns has been very rewarding and also very educational in so many ways. One of the things I learnt about was how long the whole process can take, including how much lead time it can take between placing an order and actual delivery... I hadn't anticipated selling out of our initial batch of PureWash DK and Worsted so quickly and even though I immediately ordered more it has taken a few months to produce. So, though we'll have lots of all the bases in stock in the coming weeks - and I've learnt my lesson and have already placed a follow-up order for when this next batch runs out - it means that I have to master a new system for keeping on top of my ordering and inventory. Learning curves and professional/personal growth, all good things, right!?

On top of a whole bunch of PureWash Fingering in a selection of our permanent collection colourways we'll also have tons of very small quantities of random bits and bobs in this update. There will be a bunch of single skeins across various bases and colourways - mostly things that were leftover from last month's big dyed-to-order website update. Since we sometimes have to dye more skeins than what is on order to ensure colour consistency we end up with some leftovers. We've also dyed up some of our favourite speckled colourways on our 8-ply twist sock yarn base and on Amber Label Cashmere/Silk DK weight for the luxury lovers among us! 

Moving forward through fall/winter, we hope to do more Etsy update more frequently, I'm thinking maybe as often as every 2 weeks or so, in order to be able to continue to dye our new bases in as many colourways as possible and to build up our inventory of glamour shots so when we're ready to add these yarns to our website permanently we'll have the photos ready to roll. We've already started dyeing up some Chunky (!!!) for our next update, so stay tuned for that! Don't you just love this time of year? So much good knitting vibes wafting through the air!

I'm working on a new pattern in our PureWash Fingering and I'm pretty jazzed about it. I just might scatter this awesome textured basketweave across all of my accessories from now on. 

See ya Monday!
